Resources For INFPs

January 15, 2018: Under construction! This post is being updated (slowly). 🙂

A little while ago I wrote an article on why it’s great to be INFP. And then a little while later I wrote one on INFP relationships.  This is a companion to both of those articles.  Here is a list of helpful and active INFP resources that I found while exploring INFPs on the internet.  Hope you find them useful!  (Oh, and they are in no particular order.)

Resources for the INFP!

INFP Forum at Personality Cafe – Have a question about being INFP?  Or want to know if something you do is very typical for INFPs?  Then stop by this forum.  From the mundane to the poignant, all of your INFP questions and discussions go on here.

Walking Through Transitions – A blog for “understanding your sensitive self.” Also has something of a focus on creativity. Ritu, the blogger, is an INFP.

The INFJ Writer – Not only for INFJs, but for all NFs who are writers. INFP writers will get a lot out of this book. Check out my post here on why I recommend it.

A Highly Sensitive Person’s Life: Stories & advice for those who experience the world intensely

INFP Careers – From the about page, INFP Careers “is a website devoted to helping INFP’s get guidance on INFP careers and even INFP relationships.” The author, Mike, says that he is “largely controlled by my emotions and governed by my sense of what is right and what is wrong. For the past 7+ years, I have been working jobs that I didn’t like and have been stuck in a career I don’t like. I have frequently felt different and/or alone.” Sounds pretty INFP to me. 😉

INFP Blog – From the “About” page, Corin writes “This blog is my thoughts on being an INFP and how I interact and deal with the “real” word. Hopefully, you’ll find it amusing.” As one of the only blogs I found totally dedicated to INFPs, this is a great one to check out if you are interested in some thoughtful insights and helpful recommendations for living, working and having relationships as an INFP. Some of my favorite posts on the sight include: “Speaking INFP” and “Myth of the Soulmate.”

INFP Twitter Lists – Corin of “INFP Blog” also keeps a comprehensive set of INFP Twitter Lists including a full list of INFPs he has found on Twitter, as well as certain categories of INFPs (for instance, “INFP Bloggers” and “INFP Writers and Poets”). If you are interested in finding and following other INFPs on Twitter definitely check out Corin’s lists.

INFP Meetups – I have never been to one, but for those of you who would like to meet up with INFPs in “real life” not just in “internet life” there is a page for INFP meetups.  Some of the groups are dedicated INFP meetups and others seem to include INFP members but may have some other main focus.  If anyone decides to attend I’d be curious to know how it goes.

Surviving INFP – One of the only other dedicated INFP blogs I found besides “INFP Blog.”  A post I particularly like is “My Life As An INFP“.

PersonalitySome cool INFP-centric information including comparisons between INFPs and other Myers Briggs personality types. Check out “The 24 INFP Subtypes.” (The author refers to it as a “speculative list.”)

  1. Thank you for including my blog in your list. I’m incredibly flattered that you find it useful enough to recommend to your readers.

    I would highly recommend Personality Cafe. The posts in that forum range on through so many things and I find it a good source to get ideas for topics for my posts.

    One of the recent posts was fascinating where an INFP in his 50s married to an INTJ for 23 years is having difficulty because of constant friction and personality clashes with his wife.

    I lurk in the forums everyday. Occasionally I post a comment but I’m still doing the INFP wait-and-see thing before I participate.

    P.S. – For Positively Present, Personality Cafe has an entire forum for INTJs.

    Neat! so excited to check these links out!!

  3. Amanda,
    What a wonderful list! I’m bookmarking this…since it fits me so well. Thank you so much for putting this together!

  4. Amanda Linehan Amanda Linehan

    Hi Dani – Looks like Corin (comment below yours) knows of a place!

    Hi Corin – I think your blog is a great place for INFPs to visit and comment. I’m actually surprised that there are not more blogs dedicated to INFPs. Seems like an INFP thing to do. 🙂

    Hi Leah – Glad you like it!

    Hi Trish – Yes, I’ve found lots of INFP stuff on Twitter. The amount is surprising really!

    Hi Lance – You’re welcome and glad you like it!

  5. Juju Juju

    Hi Amanda. Thank you for this list. I have it bookmarked.

    I also recommend because you can actually learn about the INFP type and also others as well.

    You should add your blog in their resources section to get more views of your blog…

  6. Amanda Linehan Amanda Linehan

    Hi Juju – Glad you found the post to be useful. Thanks for the recommendation on Personality Cafe. I have visited but haven’t posted there. I used to visit the “global chatter” INFP forums and enjoyed it. Since it is no more, I will check out Personality Cafe.

  7. Amanda Linehan Amanda Linehan

    Hi Isao – Thanks for adding this resource. I will be sure to check it out!!

  8. I definitely echo Corin’s recommendation of Personality Cafe. It’s a very active forum. People write and respond all day long. Totally awesome.

    I also echo Isao’s recommendation of it gives you the percentages of each function(ie Intravert 80%, Extravert 20%).

    Lastly, I created a site called INFP Careers at since we INFPs seem to have trouble liking our careers. I hope it will be helpgul to your readers.

  9. The thought of an INFP meetup made me laugh out loud. That’ll be one quiet party, don’t you think? Or is everyone just content sitting in silence with others contemplating the world?

    Thanks for the list, some new places in there! I just recently realized that looking out other INFP’s might help me to find people who ‘get’ me a little better than normal. 🙂

  10. Eva Eva

    Hi Amanda, you have a great resource here for INFPs and those who want to learn about INFPs!

    As an INTJ, I actually even find myself relating to some of what you write – for instance, I love your advice to use humor to diffuse the tension we may create with our strangeness. I think as Fi users we are really well served by using humor in the situations where Fe fails us. It’s kind of like saying to the other person, “I may not respect convention enough to have avoided drawing you into this awkward situation in the first place, but now that we’re here, I respect you as a person enough to help you feel better about it!”

    Anyway, I actually write to ask you to please allow me to direct your attention to my site which provides an additional resource about INFPs that I know there are INFPs out there who appreciate. (We received one of our first donations the other day from an INFP who donated $10!)

    If you don’t care for the site, that’s fine of course, and in that case I apologize for basically being full of myself. I am posting this only because I think odds are good you won’t mind and perhaps even will want to link to the site.


  11. Amanda Linehan Amanda Linehan

    Hi Eva – I took a glance at your site and think it’s interesting and fun! Thanks for passing it along and I’d be happy to link to it here. I’ll update the post within a week or so.

  12. Eva Eva

    I’m so pleased to hear it! Thanks! 🙂

  13. Amanda Linehan Amanda Linehan

    Hi John – Yeah, I do. I think that page is helpful. I’ll add it to the post sometime in the next week or so.

  14. DeAnna DeAnna

    Amanda, thank you so very much for putting together this list of resources, and for all your other interesting and inspiring articles. You make me proud to be another INFP!

  15. Amanda Linehan Amanda Linehan

    Hi DeAnna – Great! Love to hear from INFPs. 🙂

  16. Kevin Kevin

    Good evening. I saw INFPVerse, a forum, wondered if you have also looked at it, any thoughts?

  17. Amanda Linehan Amanda Linehan

    Hi Kevin – No I’ve never been to that forum. Usually, I go to the INFP forum at Personality Cafe.

  18. Kevin Kevin

    Thank you, keep up the good work you are doing…

  19. Gardner Gardner

    Hey there, the first thing that struck me about this page is that the photo you used shows a young seedling with it’s top stem broken i.e. it will die. Was that some sort of metaphor or an non-gardener mistake? Everything dies, sure, but as an INFP myself, are you suggesting we are all/should be/must be particularly melancholic or something?

  20. Amanda Linehan Amanda Linehan

    Hi Gardner – Thanks for pointing that out. No, it’s definitely a non-gardener mistake, no hidden metaphors or anything. 😉 When I first looked at this I just saw a seedling, but upon closer inspection I do see the stem is broken. Just a mistake. 🙂

  21. Tammy Tammy

    I am an INFP and would love to socialize with others like me!
