Due to his or her keenly developed imagination, one such as this would likely make an excellent author.
INFPs make great listeners and because they are usually non-judgmental they are often sought out by friends who need to vent.
This sort of individual may look for hidden meanings in the actions and words of others and may even go so far as to imagine a meaning where none lies.
An estimated four to five percent of the population has the INFP personality.
Although there is a fairly balanced ratio of males and females with this character, it does seem that this persona appears slightly more often in males.
In some cases, an INFP may be prone to seeing traits in a prospective partner or in their current partner that aren’t really there.
This occurs as a result of the INFP’s tendency to live in a dreamy, fantasy-like world of their own.
INFPs can perform these tasks very well when necessary but would not be happy to regularly assume this type of role.
On a long-term scale, one could expect their INFP partner to be a great parent.
Aside from being introverted and internal, “idealists” can be very laid-back and intuitive of those around them.
They can get a pretty good sense about a person’s true self (including motives) and are very thoughtful of their findings.
This type of individual will be seeking a lifelong relationship – someone they can envision growing old with. Few people with this character engage in meaningless, one-off, or purely physical relationships because the need to connect with that special someone and to make them happy is just too strong to ignore.
