There are so many different types of personalities in the world, aren’t there? Well, if you go by the Myers-Briggs spectrum, there’s really only 16. This spectrum shows the very basics of everyone’s personalities, based on four different traits: extroversion, decision-making, the basis of their life choices, and how they take in information.

Let’s talk about one of the most idealistic and caring personalities in the spectrums: the INFP personality type. In the Myers-Briggs personality world, an INFP stands for Introversion, Intuition, Feeling, and Perceiving.

INFPs are the kind of people who will eventually will change the world because of their effort to do right by others. They are the ones who are idealistic, youthful, and overall just great people.

Wondering if you’re one of the few, the proud, the ones who are noble enough to be an INFP? Here are the signs that you belong to world’s noblest personality type.

1. You like to see the good in people, even when others won’t allow for it.

INFPs are often the people who will befriend and defend the people most others shun. If you’re the kind of person who will stick up for folks that most others deem a “lost cause,” chances are you are an INFP.

2. People are known to take advantage of your good nature.

The thing that most people recognize about INFPs is their kindhearted nature, and to a point, this isn’t a good thing. Most INFPs tend to find themselves taken advantage of from time to time, often to the point that they may even put themselves in jeopardy.

You might need to reel it in, lest you become bitter to the world.

3. Parties aren’t really your thing, but volunteering is.

Introverted to the core, INFPs are typically the ones who are not into going to the club. However, volunteering at an animal shelter will make their day, and that’s why people have a lot of respect for them.

4. You’re known for being extremely loyal to people and causes you care about.

Everyone needs a friend or lover who’s an INFP, if only because they tend to be the most loyal people in your crew. INFPs are loyalty, personified. When things hit the fan, you can count on an INFP to stick by your side, no matter how ugly things get.

5. You tend to attract bad relationships and can’t figure out why.

The problem with being an INFP is that your loyalty, open mind, and big heart are easily taken advantage of by the wrong person. As such, INFPs can often find themselves in toxic relationships with users and abusers. More alarmingly, they also tend to stay in these relationships, simply because they hope to change the partners they have and because they feel bad about leaving.

INFPs do not realize why this happens to them, primarily because they have such a hard time believing that people can be cruel for cruelty’s sake. If this happens too frequently, INFPs may end up eschewing dating altogether.

6. To a point, you live in your own little world.

Most people would never fully guess it, but INFPs are one of the more creative types around. This deeply emotional group is known to fantasize and get artsy, but rarely brings out their full creativity to the forefront. This may give them a slightly “spacey” vibe from time to time.

7. You’re known for treating a partner like gold.

Lucky is the person who dates an INFP personality type! This type is known for doing everything possible to make their partners feel happy, loved, and supported. If you’re looking for the type to give you presents “just because,” date an INFP.

8. You don’t like to talk, but you love to listen.

INFPs aren’t extroverted and often don’t like too much attention. However, they adore listening and often will act as a venting space or absorbent shoulder to people around them.

9. When you do speak, you speak from the heart.

With INFPs, you never have to worry about sincerity. Quite the opposite, they often lack tact and can be fairly blunt at times. When dealing with this personality, it’s important to remember that this is because they are very honest, not because they are trying to be jerks.

10. Self-help and books that encourage personal development are a major thing for you.

INFPs love improving themselves and enjoy personal development. As such, they tend to love self-help books as well as any program that can enrich their lives.

11. You can be pretty easily distracted.

Most INFPs are very “inside world” people, so it’s not surprising to hear that they tend to be pretty quickly distracted. To a point, this is a good thing, since the regular world may be a bit much for them at times.

12. You are all about finding your own little place in the world.

Sincere, sweet, and caring, INFPs really just want to carve out a nook for themselves. They want to belong and they just want to live a comfortable life. They’re not extravagant; they just want a better world.
