    Why I like INFPs:

    After studying INFPs closely (sometimes too closely) I have noticed some characteristics that lure me into the INFP trap.

    -INFPs value authenticity. In an age that promotes disingenuous acts to get ahead, the INFP shuns that behavior and stays true to themselves. We need more people who stick to their values.

    -INFPs are weirdos. But, weird in a good way, you have interests in many things but not the usual things anyone else is fond of. That makes you the opposite of boring.

    -INFPs are reserved. You may be called quiet and shy; however, once you're allowed to shine and find people you trust, you are anything but. You don't need to show off for anyone.

    -INFPs are selective. You don't open up to just anyone, so when I am allowed a glimpse of the inner world I know you find me worthy of your trust. I enjoy being one of the special few that is able to earn that place.

    -INFPs dream big. Your imagination can lead to great things and fantastic stories that allow others to escape the routine of daily life. It is fascinating to witness the artistic side of INFPs.

    -INFPs want to bring kindness and peace to a world that seeks to destroy itself. You want this so much, that sometimes you sacrifice your sanity in pursuit of harmony. Not just anyone has the strength to do that.

    There are more reasons, but these are some of my favorites.

    I know you primarily aimed this at girls but thanks anyway.
    That is the dream.

    Well, thanks. Now we need one ENTJ posting why they dislike INFP's, to make this balanced, as all things should be.

    1. There is this bizarre thing that authenticity is inherently good thing among some people. If I were going around killing people would it be a good thing because I would be authentic, or would it be better for me and others, If I've shown a restraint and behave contrary to my true character?

    2.Yeah, sure I suppose having a collection of severed human heads would make someone interesting, is it being a weird in a good way? No, I'm not implying I own such collection.

    3.As for desire to bring kindness and peace, not really. It would be a simply futile endeavor, I just live accordingly to my standards and want to be left alone.

    Thank you for this post. I really appreciate your kind and attentive words. Thank you also for taking your time to get involved more with us INFP's. You've noticed things that most people do not immediately see in us...
