As an INFP, you have gifts that are specific to your personality type that aren’t natural strengths for other types. By recognizing your special gifts and encouraging their growth and development, you will more readily see your place in the world, and how you can better use your talents to achieve your dreams.
Nearly all INFPs will recognize the following characteristics in themselves. They should embrace and nourish these strengths:
- Highly creative, artistic and spiritual, they can produce wonderful works of art, music and literature. INFPs are natural artists. They will find great satisfaction if they encourage and develop their artistic abilities. That doesn’t mean that an INFP has to be a famous writer or painter in order to be content. Simply the act of “creating” will be a fulfilling source of renewal and refreshment to the INFP. An INFP should allow himself or herself some artistic outlet, because it will add enrichment and positive energy to their life.
- They’re more spiritually aware than most people, and are more in touch with their soul than others. Most INFPs have strong Faith. Those that don’t may feel as if they’re missing something important. An INFP should nourish their faith.
- INFPs are very aware of social injustice, and empathize with the underdog. Their empathy for the underdog and hyper-awareness of social injustice makes them extremely compassionate and nurturing towards disadvantaged members of our society. INFPs will feel most useful and fulfilled when they are fighting to help people who have been misfortunate in our society. They may be teachers, ministers, writers, counsellors or psychologists, but they will most likely all spend extra time trying to help people with special problems. An INFP can find a tremendous amount of satisfaction by enacting some kind of social change that will help the underdog.
- They’re usually good listeners who genuinely want to hear about someone’s problems, and genuinely want to help them. This makes them outstanding counsellors, and good friends. An INFP may find great satisfaction from volunteering as a counselor.
- They accept and value people as individuals, and are strongly egalitarian. They believe that an individual has the right to be themself, without having their attitudes and perspectives brought under scrutiny. Accordingly, they have a great deal of tolerance and acceptance dealing with people who might encounter negative judgment from society in general. They can see something positive in everyone. They believe in individuals. If they give themselves the opportunity, an INFP can become a much-needed source of self-esteem and confidence for people who cannot find it on their own. In this way, they can nurture a “sick soul” back to health.
- Usually deep and intelligent, they’re able to grasp difficult concepts with relative ease. They usually do quite well academically, and will find that educating their minds nourishes their need to think deeply.
INFPs who have developed their Extraverted iNtuition to the extent that they can perceive the world about them objectively and quickly will find that they enjoy these special gifts:
- They will have a great deal of insight into people’s characters. They will quickly and thoroughly understand where a person is coming from by assessing their motives and feelings. These well-developed INFP individuals make outstanding psychologists (such as Isabel Briggs Myers herself) and counselors. They might also be great fiction writers, because they’re able to develop very complex, real characters.
- They will quickly understand different situations, and quickly grasp new concepts. They will find that they’re able to do anything that they put their mind to, although they may not find it personally satisfying. Things may seem to come easily to these INFPs. Although they’re able to conquer many different kinds of tasks and situations, these INFPs will be happiest doing something that seems truly important to them. Although they may find that they can achieve the “mainstream” type of success with relative ease, they are not likely to find happiness along that path, unless they are living their lives with authenticity and depth.
- The INFP who augments their strong, internal value system (Introverted Feeling) with a well-developed intuitive way of perceiving the world (Extraverted iNtuition) can be a powerful force for social change. Their intense values and strong empathy for the underprivileged, combined with a reliable and deeply insightful understanding of the world that we live in, creates an individual with the power to make a difference (such as Mother Teresa - an INFP).

Cannot be stressed enough.
1. Figure Out What Inspires You
What are the reasons for why you want to succeed or accomplish something? What inspired you in the first place? What made you took the first step? Was there a time when you felt inspired? Was it something that somebody else said or did that inspired you? What keeps you going? What is the message you’re trying to get across? Who inspires you?
2. Figure Out What Dis-inspires You and Do Something About Them
Once you figure out what inspires you, there are things that discourage you as well. When you are discouraged, ask yourself what is discouraging you? What made you feel discouraged and uninspired? Why are you feeling discouraged? Can you do something about what made you feel discouraged? What will you do?
3. Do Something Else
If you’re seriously discouraged and is having second thoughts or is procrastinating, then you might want to consider putting your mind off the thing. Go for a fresh air. Do something else that you enjoy. Follow up on an old passion. Give yourself some time to re-evaluate the situation and figure out what it is you truly want.
4. Surround Yourself With Inspiring/Positive People
It’s hard enough to even have a dream and fight for it, but worst when you start believing the words of people who try to put you down. Be around people who genuinely care about your success, believe in you and contribute to your success. Some ways to do this is to share your dreams with others, determine the reactions of others, and attend inspiring seminars.
5. Be Open to Mistakes
We sometimes hold ourselves back, because we do question our capability. For example, as I am writing this article, I worry about how helpful it would actually be for others. But I also think about those that would find this article helpful, and how this is also a chance for me improve on future articles or share my experiences etc. So the point to be more open is to recognize your intentions, to not worry too much about the expectations, and just reminding yourself of the big picture.
"Keep drivin’ thru that motherfucker."
he can drive through this pussy like a mother fucker
1. Make a list. Sometimes we get depressed because we feel overwhelmed by all the things we have to do but haven’t got around to doing yet. Simply making a list can be a huge relief as you’re starting to bring things under control. That alone can help to lift your mood.
2. Take action. You’ve made a list, and you still feel overwhelmed? Then get started on the first thing you have to do. Is it a big task? Break it down and just do the smallest task possible. That way you’ll feel you’re starting to make progress.
3. Exercise. You don’t need to do a serious workout. Just going for a walk can change the way you feel.
4. Get out of the house and do something. Staying home all day can really get you down. But we often feel much better if we change environments.
5. Play some lively music and dance to the beat. Crank up whatever music you like to listen to. But choose something that’s happy and makes you sing along.
6. Talk about it. Getting things off your chest can make a big difference. It can also help you work out the reasons you feel down.
1. What are some things you like to see or have in your life? List them. Set up a plan to work towards getting each one.
2. What kind of lifestyle do you want to lead? Describe how you would like your life to be like in 1 year, 2 year, 3 year and so forth down the line. Pay attention to your progress and small changes that occur. What would you be doing each day?
3. Since you need money to survive and live the lifestyle you want, what is an ideal job that accomplishes those? How are you going to get there?
4. What are your bucket list? This question sort of relates to question 1, but bucket list are usually more about 1 time things that you’ve done whereas things you like to see or have in your life is more permanent. For example, a bucket list might be to Travel, whereas something you like to have could be a house, an expensive car, a significant other or so forth. For bucket list, write out as many things as you could think of no matter how silly they are.
5. How are you currently progressing towards your desired future? What are you currently doing now that’s getting you closer to your future?
6. What are some things you are doing now that is moving you away from the future? What could you do instead so you could move in the right direction?
