Hey there, I’m back with another INFP post. In my last entry, we discussed the weaknesses of the INFP personality type, and you can check that out here. Today we’re going to be talking about the strengths and lovely qualities that INFPs typically possess. Just like any other post on my site, this is solely based on my own research and experiences. Feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments!
- We value authenticity more than anything.
INFPs are known for having very strong values, and the authenticity of ourselves and others is definitely one of them. We hate shallow socializing and thrive off of deep conversations with people. This makes it very easy for people to open up and feel comfortable around INFPs, and we often go the extra mile to make sure people feel accepted. Although we value our authentic selves, we are very careful about who we let see that side of us. Sometimes this can come off as being standoffish, but we are really just observing to make sure we can trust that we will be accepted.
- We are extremely creative.
This is probably one of the biggest strengths of the INFP. We have a deep desire to create things that mean something to people and ourselves. We tend to be very good at entertaining new ideas and thinking outside the box. INFPs are also unconventional and unique thinkers, and we take pride in that part of ourselves.
- We are rarely materialistic.
I guess this could be interpreted as a strength, or a weakness depending on who you ask. But to me, this is a strength for sure. I find myself daydreaming about how I can simplify my life as much as possible, and I’m sure many other INFPs do the same. We seek value in experiences more than material things, which makes us feel that we are living life to the fullest. My dream is to totally convert a van, live out of it, and travel. It sounds like a simple life to some, but to me it sounds like a life of fulfillment.
- We are passionate about the things we love.
When INFPs realize that they are passionate about something or someone, we go all in. We have no problem dedicating our time and energy to something that we feel is an important part of our lives. It takes a lot to intrigue an INFP, but we’re hooked once our interest is sparked. A passionate INFP can be a very powerful force.
- We are very adaptable.
INFPs are very intuitive people, and can often use this to their advantage while adapting to big changes. We are very resilient and although change can sometimes scare us (like it scares most people), we are able to rise to the challenge and use our creativity to make the most of change and use the experience to grow as a person. We are very good at looking at the bigger picture and trusting that we will come out on the other side, better than ever.
Thank you guys so much for reading, and I hope that this has helped to shed some light on the amazing qualities we possess as INFPs. Don’t forget to like, follow, and comment to be involved in the conversation, and be notified about my next post. Bye yall!
