The INFP has two contrary characteristics, curiosity and shyness. They need to be kept informed but not the centre of attention.
To the INFP life is a long quest for meaning and harmony and their personal values are so important to them. This means that it is essential to the INFP that their beliefs and their actions are totally in sync at all times. An INFP is unlikely to take any action which they don’t believe in their heart is right. Yet there is a crusading side to the INFP that would surprise even those who knew the person well. When a personal value, or belief is trodden on, then the INFP can become uncharacteristically outspoken but their values are usually so well hidden that the other person may not realise they have done so.
The extreme depth of INFP feeling is often hidden, they have the ability to see good in almost anyone or anything, even the most unlovable.
To others the INFP will seem like a gentle enigma, often displaying their reactions to their feelings, rather than their feelings.
The INFP does not want to be constrained by rules and regulations, and they dislike the routine and don’t appreciate being micromanaged.
