    Someone who is trust worthy. I like to have friends that i can confide in and friends that will support me no matter what.

    Common interests and an awesome sense of humor is always a big plus.

    Yet, INFPs seem to usually have walls up. Thus, how can you confide in someone when the wall is largely preventing you from the act of confiding. I suppose this is a paradox of some sort.. (this is usually just in real life though I assume)

    Then, you want someone who is trustworthy, but how can one gain trust from someone without allowing themselves to be in a position to either be hurt or benefited? Which again, the wall prevents individuals to subjecting themselves to possible harm. So if that is all true, then trust can never be gained because the opportunity is never present.

    But, I am tired, and probably just over thinking this and mostly wrong

    I actively look for someone interesting, fresh, and challenging.

    I then scan for integrity and consistency.

    Someone 'real'
    Someone who can be introspective (not necessarily introverted), reflective, and think for themselves
    Someone who can be about as interested in me as I am in them (as in, some kind of mutual respect)
    Someone who can smile and laugh with me, relatively good-natured and not an angry and depressive type of person all the time
    That's what comes to mind right now

    Challenging? That makes it sound like the person in question is only a 'goal' or something, I am sure that is not what you meant, but you could elaborate a little more please?

    Free your mind from negative misinterpretation.

    Challenging -- inadvertently pushing me to grow by merely being themself.
