'Why' people are the best kind of people .

yes agreed....the why is totally the only thing that matters anyway.There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.-Jim Morrison

Sometimes it's the how.
Oh! And thank you everyone for your help.

This is very true for me. As a child I was the annoying kid that followed my parents/the teacher etc around the room asking, "but why...?" . And its one of the reasons I'm so lazy. If people can't give me a compelling reason to do things that don't immediately take my interest, it doesn't get done. I need an strong emotional motivator like shame or guilt to drive me to take action on many things.
It's strange because after you've mentioned that I realize how I always need to foresee what might take place before I take action. My ISTP Dad always complains about how whenever he tells me to do things (like, "hold this for a moment" when he's fixing something around the house) I always ask why. I can't just shut up and do what he says without know what is going to happen. Its so ridiculous!INFP 4w5 so/sp
I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

appreciates being appreciated, conflicted over conflicts, afraid of being afraid, bad at being bad, predictably unpredictable, consistently inconsistent, remarkably unremarkable...

INFJs are why people as well. We might do something, but we'll prioritize it according to how well we understand the need for it. A smart leader will talk to us about the why first and also address the concerns we may see (might even save them some trouble with others down the road). My old school required ridiculous amounts of unnecessary paperwork and frequently changed deadlines and policies on it. I finally quit doing it until I was absolutely sure it was needful.
