Despite their agreeable demeanor, INFPs represent one of the most passionate and complex personality types within the Myers-Briggs Inventory. Employing a wholly unique stack of cognitive functions, this type sees the world around them not just as it is but also as it could be-making them a deeply imaginative and highly idealistic personality. In this detailed, type-based survival guide, seasoned MBTI author Heidi Priebe explains the strengths and struggles INFPs face as they navigate the world around them as one of the most creative and emotionally intense personality types.
I really love things to do with personality. I am way more partial to the Enneagram myself, but the MBTI will always hold my interest. If you’re not familiar with MBTI, it’s the Myers-Briggs personality type, and each letter in your type means something. If you’d like to find your type, you can take a test here. I have usually tested as an ENFP, however, I’m usually a very high percentage I as well, which has led to some self discovery of my own. ENFP/INFP stand for Extroverted/Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling and Perceptive. They all mean different things, which you can find out in that website above.
Through more research, I’ve labeled myself an XNFP, which means I toe the line between E and I when it comes to my personality. I decided to pick up this book because I’ve never really dove into my INFP side, and I’m so glad that I did! I saw so much of myself in this book, and I wonder if the fact that I’m sociable has led me to testing as an Extrovert even though I am very much an introvert.
I loved the way that Priebe wrote this book, and I really liked being able to find myself in the pages. In fact, I couldn’t stop myself from tweeting a million quotes because it felt so spot on. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is an ENFP but feels more introverted, an INFP or an INFJ because apparently many INFJ’s are mistyped. I only wish Priebe had one of these for every type, because it was actually so helpful.
