Famous INFP: Gerard Way
His creative and kind but quirky nature all lend to his obvious typing as an INFP. The lyrics to many My Chemical Romance songs pay tribute to this, as well as any interview with him, really.

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!

A small collection of some INFP fictional characters.
Napstablook (Undertale), Charlie (Perks of Being a Wallflower), Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter), Fox Mulder (X-Files), Rattman (Portal series), Spy (Team Fortress 2), and Hamlet (Hamlet)
-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.
Napstablook from the game Undertale, is a great example of an INFP.
Napstablook is obviously introverted and prefers the company of himself and his music over most anything else. Despite this, he also greatly enjoys being around people whom he trusts and cares about. He enjoys art (specifically music), which makes some say he is an ISFP. However, Napstablook is too defensive and plan-focused, to be an ISFP and he is not consumed with a search for pleasure like most ISFPs. He is awkward and gets defensive when he is hurt, causing him to lash out. His kind and gentle demeanor and his love for odd things add to his sense of INFP.
