An estimated four to five percent of the population has the INFP personality.Although there is a fairly balanced ratio of males and females with this character, it does seem that this persona appears slightly more often in males.In some cases, an INFP may be prone to seeing traits in a prospective partner or in their current partner that aren’t really there.This occurs as a result of the INFP’s tendency to live in a dreamy, fantasy-like world of their own.They feed off of the emotions that others can generation within them.Although this type of individual may have difficulty expression his or her feelings through words, INFPs are great at writing down their feelings.
In a relationship, this persona will be looking for inspiration, stimulation, and passion.
INFPs make great listeners and because they are usually non-judgmental they are often sought out by friends who need to vent.
This sort of individual may look for hidden meanings in the actions and words of others and may even go so far as to imagine a meaning where none lies.
As this type of persona is extremely loyal to and trusting of their partner, it isn’t unheard of that an individual will remain in a bad or unhealthy relationship because of the idealistic fantasy that they have created.
The desire to avoid conflict may be another contributing factor for staying in a relationship that isn’t working.
