Illustrations of Type – INFP

Illustrations of Type – INFP

By Donna Dunning

In my MBTI® Certification workshops participants respond to the instruction -“Describe your type using words, phrases, or pictures.” I find these visual representations of type preferences help illustrate individual differences.

Here is a photo of a response from an INFP group. I enjoy how this group uses a fictitious figure, Gandalf the grey and the white, to describe their values-based, humanistic approach.

In the book/movie (Lord of the Rings), Gandalf’s character grows stronger by sacrificing himself to help others, symbolizing the INFP ideal. The phrases around Gandalf’s name describe the quiet, caring, passionate, behind-the-scenes, approach of those who have preferences for INFP.

This is the fourth INFP poster in the Illustrations of Type series.

You may also want to look at the other INFP illustrations:

First INFP illustration

Third INFP illustration

Notice how values are key in all four of these illustrations reinforcing the importance of the dominant Introverted Feeling (Fi) function.
