All about INFP's

The INFP is a special, sensitive individual who needs a career that is more than a job. The INFP needs to feel that everything they do in their lives is in accordance with their strongly-felt value systems, and is moving them and/or others in a positive, growth-oriented direction. They are driven to do something meaningful and purposeful with their lives. The INFP will be happiest in careers that allow them to live their daily lives in accordance with their values, and that work towards the greater good of humanity. It's worth mentioning that nearly all of the truly great writers in the world have been INFPs.
