    Default Is INFP the "perfect" type? - All hail the idiosyncratic dreamers of new worlds!

    My argument for INFP potentially being the perfect type:

    1. Boundless Imaginations
    2. Free Spirits
    3. High Ethics
    4. Idealistic Visionaries
    5. Authentic Personalities
    6. Seeking Wisdom
    7. Individual Philosophies
    8. Understanding Stories
    9. True Love
    10. Magical Experience

    So folks, what do you think: Is INFP the "perfect" type?
    All hail the idiosyncratic dreamers of new worlds!

    No type is perfect. INTPs, for instance, can actually be quite oversensitive while at the same time being insensitive towards others.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Hello Mr. Raptor,

    FTR I voted no. *shows INFP "Get Out Of Jail FREE" card*

    While the qualities you've listed are mostly accurate they are not the end all be all by any means and while situationally useful are lacking in many a context that are both useful and meaningful.

" - H.P. Lovecraft

    @RaptorWizard
    these things are great n' all until you, you know, actually need to get stuff done. this is where the ideal expectations of INFPs tend to crumble

    this is very true.
    their brand of sensitivity is less predictable and, from my standpoint at least, more bizarre than an FP or FJ's sensitivity.

    @RaptorWizard: You are of course having us on?
    Cognitive functions:
    Fi (95%); Ti (90%); Ne (75%); Fe (60%); Ni (50%); Si (50%); Te (15%); Se (5%)

    My experience with INFPs is that they present an image of being laid back and relaxed, but are full of arbitrary rules. They also tend to think too much in terms of "shoulds", and tend to ignore or dismiss discussions about' "what is" in favor of the "shoulds."

    I think us INFPs have a longer learning curve as pertains to cognitive development, on average. "We" get better with age. What type doesn't? If I had to guess I'd say that this happens once we've starting tackling Si, mid 20s to early 30s.

    As aesthetes and generally sympathetic figures, sure.
