  1. Reading about about being and infp has really helped me understand myself. For a while i thought i was depressed because i could never find motivation and i had deep thoughts. Now i understand that it is just apart of who i am. Also before seeing a list of famous infps i thought that i meant i was doomed to be a sad and unlikeable person for my negative thoughts. seeing that audrey Hepburn and princesss dianna were infps makes me feel alot better. They were 2 of the most loved people in the world. Im so glad i decided to look into this a little more it is so helpful in understanding myself

    • HA! That’s such a funny question. I don’t know how it’s “known”. I’ve collected this list from various sources. No one knows for sure that Mary and John were INFPs because they didn’t take a personality test, but we can make educated guesses based on what we know about them. That’s how we figure out that all of those other historical figures (or even fictional INFPs) are INFPs; people like Shakespeare and Helen Keller.

      • I was wondering the same question. I get John. We can gather from his writing style but I wonder how we would have enough information about Mary. I admit, it would be amazing to be convinced of it. 😊

  2. thanks so much for creating this website. I finally know why I went through some misery while growing up. I remember that I was in a great dilemma of wanting to achieve good grades but not wanting to be noticed in college. I even thought to myself maybe I shouldn’t study that hard but at the same time I hated to be less than ideal. I absolutely hate dealing with people and selling products that I am not interested in. Now I know it’s just the way I am. I am an INFP!!!
