I can only think of cons right now lol
- short attention span
- not looking into detail
- lost in my own thoughts majority of the time

This is mainly for me but could apply to other INFP's. These were some I could think of

Pros
Good listening
Great at expressing through art forms (writing, music, art)
We tend to see the good in many things in life (not everything)
We can be the type of people to change someones life drastically
Strong willed
Imaginitive/creative
Cuddles are amazing (even having never experienced cuddles with someone, I love cuddles)
When we are in the mode where we get everything done nothing can stop us from doing things, we are a train that doesn't stop in this mode.
Caring person
non threatening (as in people aren't really scared to approach you)
We can give some good advice and cheer people up

Cons
Procrastination (at the moment i'm dreading to do eng lang homework and have been putting it off and its due early in the morning, my first class and I should do it but i'm too lazy to do it)
kind of lazy (maybe its just being a teen)
Can be kind of stubborn when something I don't like is going to happen/happens
Sensitive to some degree
I don't have strong-ish opinions on politics and world stuff (My friends get into heated convos about politics and other world events and i'm just sitting there thinking "hmm, I wonder why the birds decided to follow me to school today?")
Can be awkward
Isn't taken seriously when trying to be slightly aggressive (as in when i'm upset some people don't take me seriously because it seems a bit out of character for me)
Indecisiveness

Pros:

Fantastic at understanding one's emotions, and eventually others' emotions.
If artistic: great at showing emotion through art.
Finding connections of unrelated items (Ne)
Great at backing the underdog, making individuals feel welcome
Incredible motivation/drive (once we find our cause)

Cons

High school blows (making a stereotype, but... yeah...)
Imprecise with words.
Can be too sensitive.
Runs into problems if they think everybody shares/should share their world view/values.
Can become jaded and lost to the world.
Hard to describe reasoning to others.
Rudderless (before we find our quest/cause)
Those Fi-Si loops...

On the plus side,

We seem to be romantically attractive. The INFP demeanour works well in relationships and close friendships.
We have a sense of what is wonderful in this world and take great pleasure in it.
We're relatively immune to peer pressure and public opinion.
Being sensitive opens extra dimensions of enjoyment.
All the introversion and intuiting tends to make us pretty smart and thoughtful.

On the minus side

Social interaction is hard on us.
Doing important tasks like taxes is taxing on us.
We are prone to depression.
A lot of people don't have the patience to get you.
