In the Myers Briggs Forum, here @ PerCafe, there is a thread called Weird MBTI-ish Test

I took the test.

It was strange, but fun.

You have to come up with words, on the test. Never really seen anything like it before.


The person who created the test came up with these 4 words to describe INFP (see picture below):

Imaginative - Optimistic - Enthusiastic - Fantasy/Prone




Soooooooooo.... are you feeling it? -- those 4 words? Do you agree? What four words would you have used in the test results, if you disagree?

Or IF you like -- what 4 words would you have used instead? Yes, I am repeating myself. ;-p

Fun test, thank you for sharing!
I'm an ENFP, my test result was INFP. But then again it might be because I'm more of an ambivert.

Someone already did a statistical analysis on the word items associated with INFPs
From similarminds:
creative, smart, idealist, loner, attracted to sad things, disorganized, avoidant, can be overwhelmed by unpleasant feelings, prone to quitting, prone to feelings of loneliness, ambivalent of the rules, solitary, daydreams about people to maintain a sense of closeness, focus on fantasies, acts without planning, low self confidence, emotionally moody, can feel defective, prone to lateness, likes esoteric things, wounded at the core, feels shame, frequently losing things, prone to sadness, prone to dreaming about a rescuer, disorderly, observer, easily distracted, does not like crowds, can act without thinking, private, can feel uncomfortable around others, familiar with the darkside, hermit, more likely to support marijuana legalization, can sabotage self, likes the rain, sometimes can't control fearful thoughts, prone to crying, prone to regret, attracted to the counter culture, can be submissive, prone to feeling discouraged, frequently second guesses self, not punctual, not always prepared, can feel victimized, prone to confusion, prone to irresponsibility, can be pessimistic
Unfortunately, I think the site ran out of money or something because a lot of the links to the research methodology have been broken, but I did get to read them in the past. So while I want to say the first four items in that list would be the most statistically significant items (ex. many types would be creative or smart, but INFPs are much more likely to be correlated to use that term to self-describe) so instead of any of the terms used by the test by Michael Daniels, I would put INFPs as
creative, smart, idealist, loner

Then again, our own minds place connotations on these words instead of just straight accepting statistical data. In order to paint the picture of an what likely makes INFPs different, I would use:

delusional, intelligent, oxymoron, depressive
