Are INFPs cowards? ...or "cowardly"?

This just came to mind, I don't know why.
But I think they seem like cowards. Maybe just to outsiders, though.
What do you think?

I'm not a coward. I think I would probably be the kind of person who could retain integrity even while being martyred, whether the form of the martyrdom was physical or emotional. I will defend what is right at all costs. Some here have seen me prove it. I had a gun to my head a couple of times when I was with my ex, and I was prepared to die before validating his misogyny. When my high school wanted to make us wear uniforms, even while I was shaking with fear because of how much I dislike public speaking, I worded the most eloquent response possible at the meeting where they were to decide, and I successfully, single-handedly prevented the stripping of our individuality by giving the most persuasive argument there. When something matters to me enough, I can suffer pretty much anything for it.

I am afraid of almost everything, though. The strength of my fear makes my courage more meaningful.

Under ordinary circumstances, I am so afraid of heights that you couldn't get me to climb to the top of a ladder, but if I had something worth climbing for, I would do it without hesitation. I think all of my fears are that way.
