I think on some level, when I first started this whole crazy typology thing back in high school, I wanted to be anything BUT INFP. But that was because the first profiles I read were on TypeLogic, and it seemed to be telling me: INFP's are delusional little clouds of cotton candy, ain't that sweet?
But now it's pretty obvious people aren't these profiles. People are people, and even if you're the same type as someone, experience can shape you both VERY differently. And if you are the opposite type of someone, you're still more alike than you are different.
I have really grown into my INFPness, and while I don't let it restrict me (I can't be good at math, I'm a feeler!), I like the framework it provides for self-awareness. I have a better idea over how I need to grow, and I have a better idea about what I bring to the table.
Sure, I might never be Jesus, or Gandhi, or Vicky Jo, but I can live with being an INFP
