INFP – The Idealists

The meaning-seeking and unconventional type. They are especially attuned to making sure their beliefs and actions are congruent. They often develop a passion for the arts or unusual forms of self-expression.

When an Idealist is in a sociable mood, their humor and charm shine through. Disposed to like people and to avoid conflict, INFPs tend to make pleasant company.

Idealists are often extremely creative and have a gift for language. As introverts this makes them excellent writers. They enjoy work that are aligned to their deeply felt values and tend to strongly dislike the more practical and mundane forms of tasks. They can enjoy working alone for long periods of time and are happiest when they can immerse themselves in personally meaningful projects.

Common satisfying careers: Arts, Writers, Librarian, Counselors, Social Workers, Psychiatrists and Musicians.

Some notable Idealists: Princess Diana, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, George Orwell, Virginia Woolf, Aldous Huxley, Audrey Hepburn, Richard Gere, Albert Schweitzer, JK Rowling, John Milton, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Shakespeare and Luke Skywalker.
