These descriptions are very spot on to who I am! :)

Guest (not verified) says...

haha i used to get infj but i guess i've changed...

Guest (not verified) says...

Wow I love this! :3 it makes total sense to me

Guest (not verified) says...

I thoroughly enjoyed this as this is one of the better personality tests I've taken. In fact, I would go as far as saying that this is the best. Thank you for the superbly accurate descriptions.

Guest (not verified) says...

i see myself here,fantastic!

Guest (not verified) says...

i used to be ENTP, after going through a turning point in my life and (still) questioning my calling and purpose, i became INFP and this is amazingly accruate. thank you.

Guest (not verified) says...

Me too! Was an ENTP when I was younger, thought I changed to INTP, but I'm totally an INFP all the way.

Guest (not verified) says...

INFTP Do they exist?

Guest (not verified) says...

From my understanding, no. Many people have traits from more than just one of the Myers-Briggs personalities and don't just fit into one of them, but the creator of this only uses four letters to identify the different personality types. (Correct me if I am wrong, I hope this helps!)

Guest (not verified) says...

This is pretty spot on. However, I am a very honest person, and tend to express myself if I feel it is necessary even knowing that it will cause a conflict. Maybe I am the exception, but I did feel like this article made it seem like an INFP is scared to hurt anyones feelings.

Guest (not verified) says...

I think that's the part of the article saying we (INFPs) speak up and become firm when we feel our core values are threatened (not quite the right word, but you catch my meaning).

Guest (not verified) says...

it is exactly me writer is talking fascinating amazing love it thanks alot

Dead-on accurate. On the suitable occupations page? I've worked at all the tasks of the left-most column!

I took this test when I was working and was told not only my type, but where I fell on the scale. I scored high on the scale in all the areas as INFP. I think it helps to know where you are on the scale because it may be fairly easy for some people to flip modes depending on the situation they're in and more difficult for others. Also, I think it's important to recognize that these types are preferences, not behaviors set in stone. As much as it pains me, I can get organized if I really have to, for example. Also, it would be really nice if extroverts would shut up and listen sometimes, wouldn't it? Awareness that people have different communication styles can help extroverts and introverts communicate much better. I'm definitely not an expert, but IMO this is the best personality test available. Great site.

Guest (not verified) says...

terry mckenna (not verified) says...

so spookily accurate was lmao. personally i think ive crossed a spectrum of personae throughout my lifetime, but ive been a definite INFP (although i dont really do labels !!) for the past 8 yrs. it even got my profession correct lol a drug counsellor. i was raised in a house where my parents and sister were all E-type personae and i found them really oppressive and still do on occasions. i had to get away for a few years and find me and i wasnt surprised when i found i was INFP..they call me the black sheep, but hey better than following the flock..

Guest (not verified) says...

It is pretty fun to read all about myself online. :o) And fun to see so many others who can relate. I love personality stuff! And yay for being individuals!

Shadowclone says...

Soooo why "The Healer?"

Guest (not verified) says...

A lot of people in this group are in human sciences careers such as counseling. I happen to be a nurse- defin. A healer!

L.A (not verified) says...

WOW someone who understands me!!!! finally:)

Michael Dick (not verified) says...

To know thy self. I have been on a journey of self-discovery for some time. That journey has taken me to some pretty wild worlds. This test has helped see me from yet a different perspective. Some of the info felt validating, (which means I have some bias on how I view myself) other info felt very encouraging. The pursuit of self-consciousness is wonderful, yet make no mistake people, once you open that door you can never close it again. Wisdom has its price.

Krisen (not verified) says...

Yes wisdom does indeed have it's price. Thanks Michael

Guest (not verified) says...

A good match-up.

Guest (not verified) says...

I still think I'm a total misfit after reading these. I literally crying while reading because it's so true and I don't know what to do with myself.

MichieBoo (not verified) says...

Easy...forgive yourself for having been so sensitive in situations you KNEW weren't going to pan out, but went along with them because you cared so much. Know that ultimately, we need self-care, and the love, support and guidance of someone who "gets it". (Hard part, where are THEY??) Otherwise, everyone who seems happier and more content are faking their way through the status quo. We are unable to lie to ourselves, but we tend to play hide and seek with our emotions and true responses to outside stimulae. Life is simple, not easy. So simplify...

Thea (not verified) says...

This is just so me!! At first I thought I might be an ISFP at first, but I really think that the INFP is more like me after looking into it :)

Guest D (not verified) says...

Hello I am a college student and I took the Myers Briggs in my class and I am a certified INFP hands down. I had a question or any suggestions on the disappointment factor of the INFP, being that relationships and harmony is like so high in our values, I was wondering if you could give any tips on not experiencing stifling temperament due to disappointment in friendships and relationships.

Guest (not verified) says...

I can't believe how accurate this is!

Guest (not verified) says...

Wow! This is the inner me most definitely. Thanks :)

Guest (not verified) says...

Wow, this is actually pretty spot on. I checked all the other introverted personality types and INFP is the only personality that is almost exactly like mine. I'm glad to know that i've found what my personality type is and that even though its not in a large number, there are others out there. This is just awesome :)

JoB (not verified) says...

omg it's so accurate!! i'm smiling cause i'm reading the person i am and it makes me feel good :) i'm so happy the way I am!

Guest (not verified) says...

Huh! Pretty accurate!

bananna (not verified) says...

this is verrrrry freakkky oÜo

Guest (not verified) says...

I'm going to study in dentistry soon. And you say it's one of the least popular careers for INFPs. Ow... :O

Matheus (not verified) says...

Well, I'm going to study System Analysis soon and I just found out it is one of the least popular careers for INFPs too lol

Guest (not verified) says...

Im an INFP, and im 4th year student, it's not that bad, but I think I would have a better job! so try to find out what you really want

Guest (not verified) says...

I used to dream of being a dentist but it went out of my mind. I'm going to take accounting instead

ADHD (not verified) says...

LOL....I was an accountant first (big four accounting firm) now I am a dentist. It is crazy to see these comments and how they really hit home.

Guest Towel (not verified) says...

Wow! I cannot imagine an INFP being an accountant! Unless you got 'creative' with the numbers! ;)

cristellechirwa says...

I've got a degree in accounting. Now I'm thinking I would've been more satisfied as a psychologist or maybe even getting into Parapsychology?!...

vella (not verified) says...

Really insightful! Personally I feel like I balance between infp and intp but predominantly infp. I'm glad there are resources like this to better understand oneself. Love!!

Noemie Rivers (not verified) says...

I feel that INFP describes me perfectly. When I read this webpage, I was like "how do they KNOW this? Are they stalking me? They read my mind!"

ASIF (not verified) says...

human brain is too smart.exploring itself and finding ways to play hide n seek with itself and able to give a friendly hand and tricky as well.let our brain engage in serving the dark parts of our society.we can enlighten the dark roads of life to get eternal common goal of acceptance,peace and satisfaction.

Lou (not verified) says...

I'm slightly lost. Did the test and was not a definite anything so had to choose quick type I most identified with. and here I am. Although I am introverted lots of my friends would say otherwise as I can be extroverted when in the right 'mood' and where I feel comfortable. It must be on my terms though (when I have the 'people energy' I need and never at my place!) I find it both exhausting and fulfilling. A little goes a long way. Just need a good old blow out from time to time. I'm happiest being a hermit in my own space. Any thoughts?

Guest (not verified) says...

I am INFP and have a terrible time with work/career. It is very difficult-- please help...

kristen.cude says...

I think this is pretty accurate of me too! I am an extremely emotional person, but empathy is one of my strengths. So it's not surprising that I want to be a social worker. I also love to write! I don't know about ya'll, but maybe our personality has more of a tendency to struggle with depression. I do. I also find it encouraging that Princess Diana and Audrey Hepburn had this same personality, because they were so loveable and in the spotlight. I think people put me in box because I come off as "shy" and "quiet", this bothers me so much because I know that I have a lot of personality buried under fear.

empathetic (not verified) says...

So me.
