Are you an INFP?

If you are an INFP, you will relate to all of the following traits:

  • 1. A Highly Sensitive nature

  • 2. An eye for nuance
    The INFP sees multiple layers in everything. Nothing is ever at face value for you.
  • 3. A love for change
  • The INFP Personality Type prefers a varied and stimulating day. You prefer to keep things open and flexible, so you can do what feels best during the day.

    When there is conflict or discord, you step in to resolve it. You try to hear all sides and to make sure everyone can come to an understanding.
