For the INFP male, life is a fascinating and challenging journey, filled with learning experiences that promote greater self-understanding and enhance their process of personal development. The INFP male takes life seriously and strives to keep looking below the surface, seeking meaning and purpose in the world and in everything they do.
If you’ve been curious about what it's like to be an INFP male, here are a few things you should know about this rare personality type:
INFP and ISFP personality types have a lot of traits in common – so much so that they could be confused for each other at times. But they have some distinctively different traits as well.
So, how do you figure out the INFP vs. ISFP distinction?
Let’s look at some basic similarities they share, a key difference or two, and some things you can look for to help you figure out whether you, or someone you are close to, is likely to be a ‘Healer’ or a ‘Composer’.
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. For example, the ENFP is the most introverted of the extraverted personality types. Pretty cool, huh?
An INFP Enneagram 4 is an idealist with a purpose. They are on a mission to understand themselves, the world, and the interactive relationship between the two. They seek to deepen their knowledge base, while becoming more effective and efficient at actualizing their dreams and ambitions.
Some personality types are hard to tell apart due to their similar preferences. One of the most common mix-ups happens with the INFP and the INFJ, and it isn’t unusual to find yourself unsure of which type you are since the likes and dislikes of these types overlap in so many ways. However, you don’t want to let these similarities fool you because they’re quite different once you break down each type’s traits.
