A mature individual can train his or her self to acknowledge this tendency and to restrain the impulses triggered by it.
If not, the INFP individual may place their partner on a pedestal and overlook obvious problems in the relationship.
Due to his or her keenly developed imagination, one such as this would likely make an excellent author.
This is the type of individual that dreams of long-lasting love and finding the perfect relationship.
That is not to say that these individuals cannot be logical – they can, quite successfully, with self-training and abstract thought practices.For an INFP, relationships may be less numerous but those that are formed are often long-lasting.This Myers-Briggs personality is defined as primarily being introverted, intuitive, feeling, and perceiving, although this description really only scratches the surface of this character.This is simply a result of the dreamer aspect of this personality shining through.INFPs tend to be perfectionists and often strive to reach personal ideals that can be exhausting or even impossible to obtain.Much like the INFJ, INFPs really dislike conflict and will go to great lengths to avoid an argument and see that everyone is happy.When a conflict does arise, this persona may have a profound emotional reaction.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.To outsiders, the outburst can see over the top and absurd, but the INFP has a very “internal” thought process in which they struggle to see the logical or factual side of things.They often go by their feelings rather than what science, facts, or logic suggests.Aside from being introverted and internal, “idealists” can be very laid-back and intuitive of those around them.They can get a pretty good sense about a person’s true self (including motives) and are very thoughtful of their findings.For most individuals with this personality, parenting comes naturally because it is viewed as an opportunity to frequently evaluate what’s important in life and to pass on some values that are close to the individual’s heart.
