    Movies/Music recommendations for INFPs

    Well I got talking with Silhouetree about some of these things and I decided that there are certain movies/music that appeal to INFPs possibly more than other types. I would have to say that a person's taste in music, more than most things, probably has nothing to do with his or her type. But I thought it couldn't hurt if everyone made some recommendations. I love film, will watch movies from for any era or country if I hear good things usually, and music is also important to me as well. So I'll start...

    Some movies that I think most of you INFPs will enjoy are:
    -Amelie (the number movie for INFPs in my opinion. if you haven't seen it, you must!) It's a French film, released in 2001 I believe, about a young shy (INFP) waitress by the name of Amelie. She decides to live a life helping other people around her from behind the scenes. Also in the process finding interesting ways to communicate with a man she loves without revealing herself, because of being such a "young introverted girl". Fantasy/Romance, If your an INFP you'll love it - trust me. It will make you love and embrace your inner INFP!
    -Solaris (1972 version, NOT the newer George Clooney one, though it ain't bad) German film. For the sci-fi peeps and fanatics (I'm not big into sci-fi at all really, but the themes in this film are just great). It tells the story of a man who in the future is sent to a space station where strange things are happening, to find out the problem. When he arrives he begins to encounter his wife who has already died. A very dreamy film without the ordinary plot of many films today. INFPs into sci-fi will probably love it, and if not you still might because it certainly rubbed off some good messages on me, and I'm not into science-y stuff.
    -Run Lola Run (1998) German film. Thriller/Suspense. (sorry these are foreign films, I guess I wanted to suggest some films people might not have already seen, but if subtitles don't bother you it is certainly worth it!) About a girl's attempts to save her boyfriend who needs 100,000 Deustch Marks in 20 minutes. This movie is a master of suspense without a dull or slow moment throughout. I recommend this because I have discussed movies with other INFPs and many seem to consider it atop their favorites. Also because it is very unique in its storytelling, quite original. The story acts like a videogame. If you see it you will understand, and probably love it.
    -Groundhog Day (1993?) Comedy/Drama. Most of you have probably seen this since it plays on TBS or something like that, every Groundhog Day. The movie is starting to be regarded as one of the better films of all-time, with many people citing the themes and ideologies behing the film as deeper than originally thought. Buddhists champion the film because they believe it represents a lot about self discovery and so on. Bill Murray really does a great job, creating a funny yet very sympathic character that finds himself in an odd situation that many of us have probably pondered about before - living the same day over and over again. The film being about self discovery, I highly recommend it for INFPs if you haven't seen it. But some of you definitely already have.
    -The Graduate (1967) Comedy/Drama/Romance. A classic, really. If you haven't seen it, do it. Especially if you can enjoy and appreciate older films. Dustin Hoffman plays a lonely guy who just recently graduates college. He has an affair with an older woman (The famous, "Mrs. Robinson", which is also the song in the movie by Simon & Garfunkel, as they did the original soundtrack for the film.) then he falls in love with her daughter. The film has Arguably the best soundtrack of all-time containing such songs as Mrs. Robinson, The Sound of Silence, and Scarborough Fair. Even if you like S & G see it. What a soundtrack, so perfect in reflecting the youth and confusion that the main character feels.

    Okay so those are some movies I think you all would definitely enjoy. They're all different genres, from different eras in film, and different langauges, so I'm sure there is at least one thing for everyone there. And again sorry for the foreign films if you are not a fan. If you are great! Limiting yourself to only American cinema is pretty foolish since so many great films are made outside the U.S.

    As for music I would recommend Fleet Foxes (of course) album same name. May take a few listens for some to catch on to it, it did for me . And now I'm hooked. Folk/baroque pop/indie. Check it out if you want. And if anyone takes me up on my recommendations let me know, I want to hear your response.

    I strongly recommend

    1. The 9th Configuration (if you like psychology, awesome quotes, and really cool settings then get this)

    2. The Kite Runner (you will cry and begin to believe in you're ideal)

    3. What dreams may come (beautiful movie , a little cheesy, VERY archetypal)

    4. Casino Royale ( Let us look at an ENTJ from an INFP point of view)

    5. Passion of the Christ (even if you are not religious you will find this emotionally stimulating)

    Beauty and the Beast. I always thought Belle was INFP. And it's my Disney's favourite one.

    Hmm, I love music that's easy to listen to and pleasant on the ears. I've posted a lot of music by these artists, but I'll just post 'em here in case any of you are interested, although many of the bands are pretty well-known.

    Iron & Wine, Dave Matthews Band, Dispatch, Rogue Wave, Fleet Foxes, Jack Johnson, Matt Costa, Noah and the Whale, Bon Iver, and Band of Horses.

    Of course, my musical preference extend much farther than that, but those are a few bands that I think a good majority of INFPs would enjoy.

    (To Silhouetree <having strange problems with quoting and replying>) I especially like Rogue Wave and Bon Iver. "For Emma" would have to be my favorite Bon Iver song. I never got into Skinny Love as it felt forced on me by indie fans before I became a Bon Iver fan. So though Skinny Love is a good song, I have a hesitation in playing it sometimes.

    If you haven't heard of Bon Iver, check out his debut album released in 2008: "For Emma, Forever Ago"

    haha it's scary how accurate that is to my taste. Listen to Jack Johnson too much. I like Costa and also Ben Harper if you haven't checked him out. "waiting on an angel"...you will like hah.

    hmm... I would say that American Beauty is a good INFP selection, another movie about self discovery and inner happiness.

    Ah yes, "For Emma" is a great song :). I'm not super familiar with them, but as of now, "The Wolves" is my favorite song by them.

    Aah yeah, Ben Harper is great :). I like pretty much all music similar to that. Acoustic guitars and great voices are my favorite.
