INFP Communication Highlights

INFP Communication Highlights

By Donna Dunning

Donna DunningIn my personality type based communication workshops I sometimes have participants complete this thought -“To communicate most effectively with me, please…”. This exercise helps participants think about and express their personal communication style and preferences.

I can’t take credit for this exercise. It is modified from one created by Jean Kummerow.

Here is a photo of a response from an individual with INFP preferences.

I like that these points are succinct and easy to understand.

They clearly show the INFPs’ preference for communication to be calm, relaxed, and supportive. This serves the INFPs’ dominant function of Introverted Feeling (Fi).

The INFPs’ auxiliary function, Extraverted Intuition (Ne) can also be seen as this individual asks people to explain by using analogies and starting with the big picture.
