INFP's have the following super powers:
- Special Modifier = Backbone of Steel - The ability to stand up for self/others/an ideal, like a boss
- Special Attack = Fi Stroke/Bitchslap - The ability to touch hearts and minds with our sincerity and authenticity
- Special Defense = SiTe Shield - The ability to self-fulfil our own plans, in our own way and be content with the results because where we fail, we learn and grow


If you are reading this and think, "heeeey, that power must be on back order *pats pockets to check*" ... please just hang in there. It's all there, inside you, waiting to be discovered when you are ready :happy:

Here's a few research articles about INFPs:

 



  • INFPs enjoy learning about the theory
of human behaviours, particularly in
helping people get more out of life.

  • INFPs' global language often includes
generalisations and talk about impressions,
versus specifics.

  • INFPs' flowing style may appear to
'meander'. and include non sequiturs.
This more abstract communication
style can appear 'fluffy' or unrealistic.

We make up such good jokes that we can't even tell half of them for the sake of comedy. (Because if you tell a joke to someone who won't get it, it's not a joke, and you're just weird!)

Superpower of randomly laughing aloud while walking in public.

Empathy superpowers, such as walking by the egg section in a supermarket and crying for the chickens, much to the disturbance of the employees and customers.

Ability to make mountains out of molehills and build a gleaming metropolis on the tippy-top.

Very relatable. Once there was a fly who got inside my kitchen, and it was very annoying. I didn't want to kill it so I opened the window so it would leave by itself. But it never did so it was flying around the house for many days. In the end I had to kill it because everyone's losing their temper already. So sorry, fly. Rest in peace.

Hahaaaa, so trueeee, I'm a super hero and didn't even know it.

Yes, some jokes are so meta you'd have to get someone to go down the rabbit hole before they can comprehend the genius of it lol.

I heard Louis CK is an INFP and I believe it, his jokes aren't jokes to me it's like just a normal conversation lol.

The only way to catch an INFP is with a Master ball. No other way. We are so elusive that if you see one, don't pause to stare in awe. Battle immediately. If you don't use a Master ball right away, they have a special move of vanishing, much like an Abra, and you will lose your chance to capture. Master balls have a 40% catch rate on an INFP. Good luck.

Generally considered shy creatures. Very flighty. If you want to observe one, but not capture, must bribe with food/treats and authentic companionship. If an INFP detects any sign of danger or darker motives, they gone. Bye Felicia.

Much like unicorns, you must be PURE in heart and soul to gaze upon an INFP. Otherwise their pureness will destroy you and leave you a sobbing mess that may or may not question your own existence.

Carry around an invisible "Do not touch" sign. WARNING: Do not attempt to touch an INFP without their consent. It's like feeding a Mogwai (See gremlins for more info) after midnight. DON'T DO IT. EVER.
