The INFP Personality is all about understanding themselves and their emotions. The INFP moves through the world gaining understanding of their morals and values. They constantly are paying attention to their emotional state and figuring out what feels right to them, and also learning what feels wrong to them. They tend to make decisions based on how they feel about a certain situation. This guides them in many of their life choices. They also are a bit experimental and open to new experiences. Sometimes these new experiences can lead them down a wrong path, but it is necessary for them to get a better understanding of themselves. They can prefer to have a friend that gets them out of their shell and lets them be their more quirky and extroverted self. They also can become a bit nostalgic and stay in their routines. Because they value the past, they may stick with what they know and have a hard time stepping into the unknown. However, the INFP is at their best when they are free to interact with the world around them in unpredictable ways. They can be an artist or an inspiring person. When they are coming from a place of authenticity, they can be a very charismatic and magnetic person.
