I suppose that INFPs can hate with the same passion with which they love.
I'm fully capable of feeling a strong antipathy towards someone. And if I feel that someone seriously did me wrong in some way or if they acted cruel and hurtful towards someone else deliberately, yes, I can say I hate them.
I hate evilness, and I think it is necessary to do so if you want to also love what is good. It's not an active feeling directed towards any individual (as mentioned - too much energy), but a general feeling towards what I recognize as sheer wickedness.
I feel like people can always change for the better, and I always maintain a hope for individuals. However, I may still hate what they do. When I do hate an individual, it doesn't last. It usually settles into a resentment and a general ill feeling at the thought of them, and then that dissipates further to indifference.
On evilness... is there an INFP that DOESN'T love Boondock Saints (the original)???

I can hate, but only in very short bursts. It feels good at the time, but I'm aware that it is not a reflection of anything real. It's only my child-mind feeling hurt by someone else's actions or words. I consider it very self-indulgent and private. As someone said, it's hard to maintain.
I don't know any confirmed INFP's, but two stereotypes are the "emo I hate the world" and the "cute fluffy I love the world and cannot hate anything"- the stereotype this thread is based on. I find it funny how these two stereotypes coexist given they are polar opposites.
