2) Grad school (?)...I've noticed that people in academia or who have higher level degrees seem to know a disproportionate number of INxx. My mother even suspects it, and she doesn't know a damn thing about MBTI. She was like "go to grad school, there are more people like you there."

Maybe the park too. Peaceful, interesting places mostly.
You can find me anywhere really. I usually lose my stamina early in the evening though so don't expect to find even a socialized infp like me at a bar past 1 AM and if you do we will look dead tired/bored by that point. The ironic thing is that more social infps aren't that much easier to snag because we tend to be so unapproachable. We do warm up quickly to the right people though.
With dreamers, pure and simple, the imagination remains a vaguely sketched inner affair. It is not embodied in any aesthetic or practical invention. Reverie is the equivalent of weak desires. Dreamers are the aboulics of the creative imagination.
Came across an INFP description recently that had rather handy, short & simple lists that could help a person snag an INFP.
How to love an INFP:
+ Appreciate my uniqueness and sensitivity
+ Be a patient and supportive listener
+ Respect my privacy and my need for emotional intimacy
+ Be reassuring and gentle in your words and actions
+ Try not to force decisions too quickly, or bug me about being messy.
+ Respect my feelings and never demand that I compromise my values
How to spot INFPs:
+ Idealistic with deep, yet private passions
+ Creative and imaginative
+ Initially hesitant and cautious
+ Original, even funky dressers
How to communicate with INFPs:
+ Share genuine beliefs and values to establish rapport
+ Respect their slower warm time and need for privacy
+ Emphasize the ways ideas will benefit others
