How become an ISFP?

I’m INFP and I’ve always despised my lack of practicality and always idealized myself as someone strong living in the moment. I’m tired of living in the fake world of fantasies, I want to venture into the now and adapt my body and let my mind focused on the now. Do you guys know of some kind of type change?

Dude, if you could change your type, I’d be an NTJ by now.

First, there is nothing wrong with being an INFP.

INFPs have special gifts that no other type has: they have the ability to see the best in other people, to set a strong moral example, they often have astounding levels of sheer imagination, creativity, and talent in a wide variety of areas. Fi channels Ne into amazing bouts of self-expression and clarity few other types have.

Some of the most innovative, creative individuals on the planet are INFPs. Offhand, three famous INFP filmmakers are George Lucas (Star Wars), Tim Burton (literally my idol and maker of many of my favorite films), and Woody Allen (think what you will of his personal choices, his films are award-winning). You might also be able to include Neil Gaiman (he’s NFP, I’m just not such which leads with him – Ne or Fi).

Being impractical simply means you need better Te development. Focus on actualizing your ideas and goals, and staying in touch with what is possible. You can read plenty of books on organizational skills, rational debating, and a wide variety of topics that will ground you in psychology and ‘real life.’

As a Ne, you are living in the moment, it’s just that you are also looking ahead and behind, so you are more focused on the potentials than the objects around you. You can develop lower Si and learn to be more ‘present’ and engaged with the object, in order to enjoy the moment more. Focus on learning what you like / do not like in the sensory world. Explore. It can be as simple as taking the time to really look at the outside world, in detail. How many stars does a flower have in its center? What color is the under-wing on a butterfly?

You can become more rational, grounded, or present, by making an effort to both be more rational, grounded, and present, and thinking in grounded, rational, and present terms. Act like you are present. You will become present. Not in the way an ISFP would be, but you don’t need to become an ISFP to be present, rational, grounded, or connected to the outer world.

myers-briggs personality types

↳ INFP (The Healer)

INFPs are imaginative idealists, guided by their own core values and beliefs. To a Healer, possibilities are paramount; the realism of the moment is only of passing concern. They see potential for a better future, and pursue truth and meaning with their own individual flair.

INFPs are sensitive, caring, and compassionate, and and are deeply concerned with the personal growth of themselves and others. Individualistic and nonjudgmental, INFPs believe that each person must find their own path. They enjoy spending time exploring their own ideas and values, and are gently encouraging to others to do the same. INFPs are creative and often artistic; they enjoy finding new outlets for self-expression.

Historical MBTI Figures

Because I’m a history major, I thought it would be fun to put together real world examples of every type.  All of these figures are awesome, just like all of the types are awesome.  I apologize that the list is very Western-centric; my focus is American history so I probably don’t know as much about other global figures as I should, but I would love to hear any suggestions people have!! I also tried to choose people who would be fairly recognizable.  Enjoy!

INFP Personality (“The Mediator”)


INFP personalities are true idealists, always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events, searching for ways to make things better. While they may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, INFPs have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine. Comprising just 4% of the population, the risk of feeling misunderstood is unfortunately high for the INFP personality type – but when they find like-minded people to spend their time with, the harmony they feel will be a fountain of joy and inspiration.

INFP personality
Being a part of the Diplomat personality group, INFPs are guided by their principles, rather than by logic (Analysts), excitement (Explorers), or practicality (Sentinels). When deciding how to move forward, they will look to honor, beauty, morality and virtue – INFPs are led by the purity of their intent, not rewards and punishments. People who share the INFP personality type are proud of this quality, and rightly so, but not everyone understands the drive behind these feelings, and it can lead to isolation.

All that is gold does not glitter; not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither; deep roots are not reached by the frost.

We Know What We Are, but Know Not What We May Be

At their best, these qualities enable INFPs to communicate deeply with others, easily speaking in metaphors and parables, and understanding and creating symbols to share their ideas. The strength of this intuitive communication style lends itself well to creative works, and it comes as no surprise that many famous INFPs are poets, writers and actors. Understanding themselves and their place in the world is important to INFPs, and they explore these ideas by projecting themselves into their work.

INFPs have a talent for self-expression, revealing their beauty and their secrets through metaphors and fictional characters.

INFPs’ ability with language doesn’t stop with their native tongue, either – as with most people who share the Diplomat personality types, they are considered gifted when it comes to learning a second (or third!) language. Their gift for communication also lends itself well to INFPs’ desire for harmony, a recurring theme with Diplomats, and helps them to move forward as they find their calling.

Listen to Many People, but Talk to Few

Unlike their Extraverted cousins though, INFPs will focus their attention on just a few people, a single worthy cause – spread too thinly, they’ll run out of energy, and even become dejected and overwhelmed by all the bad in the world that they can’t fix. This is a sad sight for INFPs’ friends, who will come to depend on their rosy outlook.

If they are not careful, INFPs can lose themselves in their quest for good and neglect the day-to-day upkeep that life demands. INFPs often drift into deep thought, enjoying contemplating the hypothetical and the philosophical more than any other personality type. Left unchecked, INFPs may start to lose touch, withdrawing into “hermit mode”, and it can take a great deal of energy from their friends or partner to bring them back to the real world.

Luckily, like the flowers in spring, INFP’s affection, creativity, altruism and idealism will always come back, rewarding them and those they love perhaps not with logic and utility, but with a world view that inspires compassion, kindness and beauty wherever they go.

INFP youtubers

-Cryaotic or chaoticmonki is probably one of the most INFP people I can think of. He is known for his strong morals, love for children and animals, gentle spirit, and his emotional reactions. He has stated before that he is shy and very introverted, and he always plans in advance during his walkthroughs, giving me the Ni impression. He is extremely emotional and kind, always putting loyalty, morals, and his feelings above logic. (This can be especially seen in the Walking Dead play throughs, where he always sides with Clem, or Haunting Grounds where he always protects Hewie). He always reserves judgement, giving me a perceiving idea of him. He also tends to not cause drama in the community, but he defends his friends when needs be.

-Christian Novelli or TouchTheSkyFilms is another extremely INFP individual. He is shy and emotional and nearly every fan who has met him says he is genuinely very sweet. He has a strong artistic side and he puts idealistic visions, mixed with darker undertones in most of his videos. He’s always been sort of an epitome of INFP to me.

-Cr1tikal or penguinz0. I have also typed him as a Ti personality, but I found an entire reddit thread just dedicated to proving him to be INFP, so I thought I might as well mention him. He mixes corny puns and “dad jokes” in with occasionally dark and sexual humor, which is a very INFP thing to do, in all honesty. He’s definitely introverted and he tends to think like an Ni. The thread I saw typed him as an Fi, instead of a Ti, because of what he does with his youtube money. He donates all of it, besides what he needs to live with, to charity. He repeatedly sticks up for other youtubers and his fans. Even when he makes videos commentating other videos or films, he is never actually mean for humor. His jokes are always genuine or about something going on, they are never the typical “haha he’s ugly” BS. He also has a very chaotic upload schedule and his videos are all over the place, which definitely gives off an INFP vibe.
