Hey everyone, I’m Erik Thor, an expert on using personality psychology for flow and personal development.

INFP Hero vs INFP Victim

Are you an INFP Hero or an INFP Victim? Take this test to find out and learn about the self-aware, mature INFP. What is the difference between good INFPs and “evil” INFPs? How can you recognise healthy and positive tendencies in INFPs? And what can you do to to be more happy and successful as an INFP?

The INFP A or INFP hero is an INFP in a flow state. As an INFP Hero, you rely on your dominant functions to get around in the world. That means your Introverted Feeling and Extroverted iNtuition is in full force at its highest potential. The INFP T or INFP Victim is an INFP under stress.

This INFP relies more on developing their Extroverted Thinking and Introverted Sensing to control themselves. You take a more careful and negative, conscientious approach. This INFP acts more out of fear than courage.

1. I look at myself with self-respect and with understanding.

The INFP Hero has self-respect and believes in and accepts themselves just the way they are. If you ever struggle with your self-worth or need love or support, watch this video.


2. I speak to myself with kindness, supporting myself and building up a positive self-image.

Many INFPs struggle with a negative self-dialogue. I made this video to talk about this tendency and what you can do about it.

3. I allow myself to be just as weird as I want to be, no matter who I am with

I should make a video about this but haven’t gotten around to it yet. INFPs are at their best the more weird and quirky they dare to be! The INFP hero is someone who can be quirky, random, and just as eccentric as you want to be.

4. I never lose hope

Hope and sense of optimism are common characteristics in successful INFPs. Even during dark days, you should want to believe in a brighter tomorrow. The INFP hero is known for their sense of idealism and hope.

5. I speak out when I think something is wrong

Unhealthy INFPs tend to let bad and immoral behaviour go unchallenged. You may hold your feelings to yourself and enable unethical behaviour. So be bold and speak out when you disagree with something!

6. I stand up for those that are being unfairly treated

This also goes for speaking out for people around you who are being unfairly treated. Respect the small person and give everyone the space and respect they deserve. The INFP hero represents the smaller person and the power of the individual.

7. The INFP Hero has confidence in their own ideas

Don’t belittle or downplay your own ideas. Don’t say your ideas are stupid or random or odd. Just enjoy and trust in your creative process.

8. I speak my mind freely

Let associations fly freely and share the first things that come to your mind when they come to your mind. The INFP hero trusts their own thoughts and ideas.

9. I’m not afraid to share my inner world with others

Let yourself be open with your thoughts and feelings, especially to close friends and family members. Let people hear and see your inner depth. The INFP hero

10. As an INFP hero, you believe that people want to be friends with the real you

Believe that people around you have good intentions and accept and believe in and support you, and give people the benefit of the doubt. Give people a chance to hurt you, and trust that your best way forward is openness. Don’t hold yourself back just because you think other people want you to.

If you answered confidently yes to 5 or more of these questions, you are an INFP hero. You trust in your strongest cognitive functions and let your gifts shine in the world. You contribute by being yourself and hold little back. If you had doubt or struggled with several of these questions, that may mean you are an INFP victim. For INFP growth tips and inspiration, consider becoming a patron or applying for coaching.
