Your unique personality type is suited to particular kinds of roles in the workplace. INFPs – people with preferences for Introversion, Intuition, Feeling and Perceiving – seek work that aligns to their personal values and allows them to help others.
When your career choices are driven by your values, without actually trying them out, it can be hard to know which jobs or careers might actually suit you. Let’s explore what INFPs need in a job and some of the careers that meet those requirements.
If you have an INFP in your life, you might sometimes view them as an exotic, high-strung horse that you don’t quite understand or know how to deal with.
First, remember that we’re not animals, or children, so please don’t try to manage us, humor us, or endeavor to bend us to your will.

As an ENFP personality, I have questioned whether or not I’m actually an Extravert multiple times. It was incredibly helpful to read the ENFP Survival Guide by Heidi Priebe (she also has one for INFPs!) and discover some key differences between the two.
