    Careers for INFP Personality Types

    Whether you're a young adult trying to find your place in the world, or a not-so-young adult trying to find out if you're moving along the right path, it's important to understand yourself and the personality traits which will impact your likeliness to succeed or fail at various careers. It's equally important to understand what is really important to you. When armed with an understanding of your strengths and weaknesses, and an awareness of what you truly value, you are in an excellent position to pick a career which you will find rewarding.

    INFPs generally have the following traits:

    • Strong value systems
    • Warmly interested in people
    • Service-oriented, usually putting the needs of others above their own
    • Loyal and devoted to people and causes
    • Future-oriented
    • Growth-oriented; always want to be growing in a positive direction
    • Creative and inspirational
    • Flexible and laid-back, unless a ruling principle is violated
    • Sensitive and complex
    • Dislike dealing with details and routine work
    • Original and individualistic - "out of the mainstream"
    • Excellent written communication skills
    • Prefer to work alone, and may have problems working on teams
    • Value deep and authentic relationships
    • Want to be seen and appreciated for who they are

    The INFP is a special, sensitive individual who needs a career which is more than a job. The INFP needs to feel that everything they do in their lives is in accordance with their strongly-felt value systems, and is moving them and/or others in a positive, growth-oriented direction. They are driven to do something meaningful and purposeful with their lives. The INFP will be happiest in careers which allow them to live their daily lives in accordance with their values, and which work towards the greater good of humanity. It's worth mentioning that nearly all of the truly great writers in the world have been INFPs.

    The following list of professions is built on our impressions of careers which would be especially suitable for an INFP. It is meant to be a starting place, rather than an exhaustive list. There are no guarantees that any or all of the careers listed here would be appropriate for you, or that your best career match is among those listed.

    Possible Career Paths for the INFP:
    Counselors / Social Workers
    Teachers / Professors
    Clergy / Religious Workers
