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.
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.
Personality – Some 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.”)
