INFPs are healers and dreamers. They see the world for what it could be, and they inspire others with their imagination and compassion. However, it’s not easy being an INFP personality type. As an INFP, you may feel like the world doesn’t understand or appreciate your individuality. You may feel like you have to pretend to be someone you’re not. Because you hide your feelings, passions, and strong values beneath a calm exterior, you may struggle to make your voice heard. In spite of this, INFPs have a bright inner light that helps them overcome life’s challenges.

Here are 20 quotes that INFPs will relate to:

  5. “I know but one freedom, and that is the freedom of the mind.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
