Top 50 Best Fictional INFP Characters Of All Time
Shivam-Updated Jan 14, 2023
As an audience, we hardly come across motion pictures that do not feature any character.
Having characters in a cinematic story not only helps in the construction of a film's plot, but it also gives us a whole lot of room to understand the different personas that these characters embody.
While some of them end up making us love them for who they are, others compel us to dislike and scrutinize them to get to the core of the story.
Needless to say, each of the characters in a screenplay serves its purpose and, therefore, helps in making the story both relatable and substantial.
Today, we strive to cast a light on one distinct personality trait that is sometimes found in the characters that we eventually end up admiring.
This personality type is known as INFP. But, first things first, we need to decrypt who exactly is an INFP and why is it considered to be so rare among several personality markers shown in the rich world of cinema.
An INFP is someone who sees the world the way they want it to be.
Often an idealist, they can manage to come across as incredibly reserved and modest when they cease to find a way to express themselves.
Since INFPs are often an introvert, they communicate better through their writing, music, art, or any other mode of connection, which may or may not be direct.
That said, there are two sides to an INFP character. While they can be inventive communicators who are also duly compassionate and considerate, they can also turn out to be increasingly vulnerable and tough to please when they wish to be.
Be that as it may, what truly sets them apart from the crowd is the fact they barely ever let go of their values; something that makes them an original in the world of the unoriginal.
Let us now try to take an in-depth look at some of the most prominent INFP characters in feature films, cartoons, and television series that have managed to make an impression on the minds of the viewers.
50. Alex Finch (Chances Are)
'Chances Are' is an Emile Ardolino directorial venture that tracks the journey of Robert Downey Jr.'s Alex Finch; someone who is smitten by Mary Stuart Masterson's Miranda and her family.
Alex Finch is a rather unusual INFP character in this bizarre romantic comedy. However, what makes Alex Finch a personality worth being appreciated and carrying extremely similar traits of an INFP is the fact that he is absolutely empathetic towards the people that he likes and passionate about things that he wants.
In addition to this, he is also quite helpful and caring as an individual which makes him come across as adorable on the screen.
Add to that the fact that one cannot help but admire the actor who plays Alex which, in turn, makes the character itself more admirable.
49. Faith Corvatch (Only You)
Faith from 'Only You' is one dreamy INFP character. This is because once she theorizes that she is fated to marry a man who goes by the name of Damon Bradley, she leaves everything behind and sets out to look for him.
Portrayed by Marisa Tomei efficiently, Faith Corvatch carries some traits that make her come across as an INFP.
Not only is she incredulously preoccupied with the thought of finding herself a soulmate, but, as far-fetched as it may sound, she has always believed that her dream man would be named Damon Bradley.
As unrealistic as she may sound, Faith is a believer. She involves herself wholeheartedly in her relationships and expects magic from them in return.
Now, as unsteady and weak as relationships have turned out to be in today's age and time, one has to give it to Faith for keeping her faith intact despite all odds.
48. Elsa (Frozen)
The 'Frozen' film franchise gives the viewers the character of Elsa that embodies traits of being a bonafide INFP.
Elsa has a unique interest: she prefers to be alone. However, this preference stems from the fact that she would rather stay isolated than pretend to be someone around people that she is not; a characteristic that is often noticeable in INFPs.
Additionally, Elsa also stays in a bit of a dilemma. This is because she is scared to accept and harness her 'wintry' capabilities.
But, when it comes to her personality, she comes across as balanced and reliable. That said, like some INFPs, she can afford to get a tad unpredictable and insecure about certain things.
And, even though she works too well to not let her emotions show, she has a lot of it concealed within the confines of her heart.
47. Luna Lovegood (The Harry Potter Franchise)
Another character from the Harry Potter series to make it to this list is that of Luna Lovegood.
Luna is the quintessential INFP. She is thoughtful, idealistic, and often shy; making her embody the three main traits of an authentic INFP.
Luna manages to make a mark on the viewers because no matter what the situation, she tries to look for the good in others; an important aspect that most of us have let go of today.
Moreover, she does not allow herself to be perturbed by hard facts and strives to look at the bright side of things.
That said, just because she is quirky and a little different, does not mean that she can be taken for granted.
No, sir! However, like most INFPs, she is both protective and serious about the people that she loves, irrespective of her closed-off persona.
46. Beatrice "Tris" Prior (Divergent)
Intelligent, stubborn, and warm, Beatrice Prior is not only the main protagonist of the popular science-fiction drama 'Divergent', but she is also the only character from the feature film that fits the bill of being an INFP.
Beatrice Prior is a doting daughter who has always tried to be there for her parents.
That said, she is not at ease with her current faction and is, therefore, determined to explore where she truly belongs.
Like most INFPs, she is imaginative, has sharp humor to her personality, and is often trying to comprehend her surroundings.
The fact that she is different might make her feel both remorseful and protective of herself, but it does not stop her from believing in her abilities.
It is not surprising then that Beatrice Prior is a "Divergent" in the true sense of the word.
She is kind, unafraid to try new things, and someone with values. In addition to being confident and defiant, she is also a romantic at heart.
Needless to say, her test results disclose that she does not fit into either of the factions established by society, thus, making her a true-blue INFP.
45. Alice (Alice in Wonderland)
Alice from the cult fiction 'Alice in Wonderland' is one character that a lot many INFPs would love to have on this list.
Even though she belongs to an affluent family, she is surprisingly rational for her age and more than at ease with her distinct personality.
Furthermore, Alice also tends to get curious from time to time and allows her experiences to give her a better understanding of people and the world.
Since she is well aware of her class status, she maintains her nobility without coming across as rambunctious.
It is not startling then that she also has a soft corner for those who are underprivileged.
44. Sam Baldwin (Sleepless in Seattle)
Our protagonist, Sam Baldwin, is a widower with a young son who embodies quite a few qualities of being an INFP personality.
The screenplay follows how Sam's son dials a radio station to convey his father’s loneliness after his mother’s tragic death.
Sam is a heartbreakingly original character. Like most INFPs, he feels the need to express his feelings to someone, but barely has anybody but his young son around him.
As a result, when he gets the chance to talk about his emotions, he simply goes ahead and does it.
Sam Baldwin is also a hopeless romantic at heart who is still in love with someone who he has lost.
In addition, he is deeply dedicated towards his son; "apparently", the only family that he has got.
43. Jasmine (Aladdin)
Jasmine from 'Aladdin' is yet another popular mainstream character that shows signs of being an INFP.
Even though she feels like a bird in a cage behind the walls of her palace, she continues to make her own decisions and stands by them.
This comes to the fore when Jasmine makes it clear that she wants to marry someone that she loves and not the person that her father chose her to marry.
Needless to say, Jasmine is a rebel who knows what is best for her. She might come across as incredibly reserved, but she is a tough nut to crack and is super smart; therefore, making her a worthy addition to this coveted list of INFP personalities.
42. Cinna (The Hunger Games)
Helmed by Francis Lawrence, 'The Hunger Games' traces the journey of its protagonists Katniss Everdeen, Gale, Finnick, and Beetee, who, after having put an end to the games, collude to protect both Peeta and a nation that Katniss has managed to move by her strength and audacity.
Even though The Hunger Games comprises a wide range of characters, not many manage to leave a mark like the character sketch of Cinna did.
While he may not be among the major characters in the screenplay, he does tend to leave an impact on the minds of both the viewers and Katniss.
Exemplifying traits of an INFP, Cinna was not just the only individual from the Capitol who had an enormous amount of confidence in Katniss, but he was always among the few who attended to her with appreciation and affection.
Cinna, who is soon assassinated for his role in the revolution, even meets his death with honor and acknowledgment.
These are the personality traits that helped both the audience and Katniss in recalling him as a true source of inspiration.
41. Bella Swan (The Twilight Franchise)
Based on Stephenie Meyer's novel of the same name, this Catherine Hardwicke directorial venture tracks how Bella Swan stumbles upon an enigmatic boy when she transfers to live with her father.
Portrayed by actor Kristen Stewart for the screen, Bella Swan is one popular INFP character who is drawn more towards fantasy than reality; as depicted in both the motion picture and its source material.
Before Bella Swan found her way to Edward Cullen, she loved reading about places of otherworldly nature.
The fact that INFPs are loving towards people who are deemed to be an outcast by society reverberates in this film through Bella's character sketch.
This becomes obvious when despite knowing that the Cullens may be dangerous on the pretext of being vampires, she still allows them to be a part of her life.
Bella Swan is a bold personality who does what she pleases but can also afford to get vulnerable from time to time.
Be that as it may, she is unafraid to take steps that may lead her to experience wild and unpredictable adventures.
40. Newt Scamander (Fantastic Beasts: Crimes Of Grindelwald)
This David Yates directorial venture tracks the journey of Gellert Grindelwald; someone who schemes to put up an army of wizards to rule over non-magical beings.
Among an overload of known characters from this motion picture, the one that the viewers, especially the INFPs, would relate to is that of Newt Scamander.
Newt Scamander comes across as your average-looking guy who deeply cares about animals from within.
Not only is he sensitive, but he is also equally creative and determined. Like most INFPs, Newt is an idealist who has his own set of ideas about the world that he follows.
His compassion for animals comes to the fore when he travels across the world with an aim to learn about the magical creatures and how best to safeguard them.
Overall, Newt Scamander is a brilliant and kind-hearted character that incorporates several traits of an INFP personality and has been played efficiently by a hard-working Eddie Redmayne.
39. Ramona Flowers (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World)
Edgar Wright's 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World' gives us yet another INFP character to read about.
The screenplay tracks how Scott Pilgrim meets Ramona Flowers and falls head over heels in love with her almost immediately.
Portrayed by actor Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ramona Flowers is one INFP character to look out for.
She has a capricious charm to her persona and comes across as enigmatic; something that is often common with trademark INFP individuals.
Since she keeps to herself and has a magnetic pull to her personality, Ramona continues to be desired by all of her exes in the feature film.
Needless to say, even Scott Pilgrim is smitten by her alluring heart and composed demeanor.
What gives a definitive edge to her character is the fact that, like most INFPs, she too refuses to conform; something that is evident from her uniquely colored hair.
She is a strong personality who does not try too hard to make a space for herself in the crowd and this makes her even more attractive.
38. Ricky Fitts (American Beauty)
Ricky Fitts from the cult motion picture 'American Beauty' is yet another commendable character sketch that deserves to be on this list.
He is someone who has grown up moving around with his stringent military father and, therefore, has always felt trapped in his presence.
Like plenty of INFPs, Ricky Fitts has an interest in video-taping wonderful things; things that may come across as uninteresting or absurd to those who don't have an eye to capture creativity.
It is not surprising then that he yearns to be a filmmaker of sorts. Also, since Ricky is an INFP, he is a hopeless romantic deep within.
This becomes evident when he allows his sensitive heart to fall for the lovely Jane Burnham, for she is someone whose presence warms his misunderstood soul.
Being an INFP also comes with the baggage of people not being able to comprehend your ideas.
Unfortunately, the situation is no different for Ricky Fitts. While most people who are battling a mental problem or depression are not able to convey their ideas in the most logical of ways, Ricky Fitts has his way of making sure that he understands and explains the things that he admires, the things that he likes to shoot; irrespective of whether people like it or not.
37. Lisa Simpson (The Simpsons)
Lisa Simpson from the hugely acclaimed cartoon series 'The Simpson' is yet another worthy addition to this list.
She is an INFP not only because she is the smartest personality of the Simpson family, but also because her intellect and ideologies are often in conflict with the members of her family.
Oftentimes, she feels that she is not being able to be comprehended by the people that she loves.
Lisa Simpson mostly stands by what she believes is right and is seen speaking her mind even when it may not be entirely reasonable for her to.
Even though she can come across as soft and vulnerable sometimes, she is determined enough to follow her heart; a trait that makes her a true-blue INFP.
In addition, she also has a creative mind and is empathetic towards people who are good to her.
36. Peter Parker (Spiderman)
A childhood hero for many, 'Spiderman' is one of the most beloved on-screen characters in motion picture history.
However, the face behind the iconic superhero is that of Peter Parker; someone who embodies a lot many characteristics of being an INFP personality.
Even though the original Spiderman has had a lot many successors, it is still the closest to depicting an INFP character.
Tobey Maguire's Peter Parker is sort of an underdog. He is reticent, awkward, but completely devoted to the people that he admires.
In addition, like most INFPs, Peter Parker is also traditionally romantic from within. This is evident even when the person that he likes starts going out with someone else.
Even though this makes Peter Parker comes across as a bit too cinematic and clumsy, it does demonstrate the fact that he barely ever lets go of the ones that he loves; making him as determined as they come.
35. Sadness (Inside Out)
Arguably the most unconventional "character" to make it to this list is that of Sadness.
Sadness is one of Riley's emotions from the film 'Inside Out' that comes to the forefront when she and her parents move to San Francisco.
Sadness is an INFP in the sense that she is a bit insecure about the fact that her activities may not be able to bring Riley peace.
However, unbeknownst to Sadness, this makes her both caring and empathetic in equal measure. In addition, Sadness is also amazingly creative and gracious.
She has a lot of compassion for the people that she cares about in her heart.
However, like quite a few INFPs, she is a bit under-confident about her ideas and does not know if they will bear fruit or not.
Also, even though she has a lot to share, she tries to repress her emotions and waits for people to understand her needs; something that makes her both unique and needy.
34. Elisa Esposito (The Shape of Water)
This Guillermo del Toro-helmed feature film traces the journey of a forlorn janitor who chances upon an amphibious creature and develops an unconventional rapport with it.
Sally Hawkins plays Elisa Esposito to the hilt; a character that carries major traits of being an INFP personality.
Aside from coming across as amazingly compassionate and imaginative, she can also be seen turning into a dreamer of sorts.
This is because she is oblivious to the elements that make her life feel hollow and mundane and, therefore, often daydreams about a fantastical land.
In addition, she also goes out of the way and does the extraordinary when she falls in love with an amphibian man.
Elisa Esposito follows the essence of being an INFP here in the sense that INFPs are people who would fall for someone based on the authenticity and caring nature of their personality, rather than the superficial aspects that human beings are usually driven by.
Moreover, Elisa not only falls in love with someone who would be deemed an outcast by society, but she also ends up making friends with a host of personalities who are seen as misfits who cease to conform to the norms of civilization.
33. The Little Prince (The Little Prince)
'The Little Prince' has been helmed for the screen by Mark Osborne and is based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's novel of the same name. "The Little Prince" is full of novelty and tolerance and is one of the most likable INFP characters in fiction; film or otherwise.
Unlike most of the grown-ups in the tale, The Little Prince is an emotional wreck; a side of his that comes to the fore when the viewers realize that how terribly he yearns for the rose that he has left behind on his home planet.
That said, one characteristic that makes the prince pretty much like how most of the INFPs are is the fact that he barely cares about what civilization tells him to do.
He has his own ideas about what matters and what does not and, eventually, it ends up helping him become an educator for the people who seem to have lost their way in the world.
32. Jane Eyre (Jane Eyre)
Besides being a governess, Jane Eyre is someone who seems to have found her true love in Edward Rochester.
Now, Edward might be the owner of an old mansion, but he also harbors secrets that can devastate Jane's life forever.
Jane Eyre is a solid INFP character. This is not only because she is always driven by her principles, but also because she is a true-blue original.
Even though she is smart, Jane does have a knack for chasing her emotional needs to get to the gist of things.
Her appetite for connections is also coupled with her simultaneous desire for sovereignty. Better still, Jane Eyre is an INFP also because she is inspiring in many ways.
She strives to motivate her viewers to maintain their dignity even during the most unfortunate of situations.
For women, she sets a benchmark by following her judgment, while trying to make them understand their true worth.
31. Will Byers (Stranger Things)
There is no denying the fact that 'Stranger Things' is one of the most popular series in the world today.
As the plot starts to untangle sequences of extraordinary enigmas as it progresses, the viewer gets familiar with Will Byers.
He is, in my ways, the face of the series. Will is an INFP not only because he is considerate and accountable for his actions, but also because he goes to any length to support his friends.
That said, Will Byers is also quite a deep lad. While he is smart enough to act strong when out and about, he is also equally adept at hiding his emotions.
He is often seen trying to sail through life by creatively drawing. In addition, this kind-hearted boy is often irked by the fact that people don't realize why some things matter to him in the way that they do; a dilemma that makes him feel that he is misunderstood by people.
In turn, this is what makes the audience empathize with Will Byers even more.
30. Coraline Jones (Coraline)
Directed by Henry Selick, ‘Coraline' tracks the journey of Coraline Jones; a girl who uncovers a secret door that leads to a different realm while examining her new residence.
First things first, the synopsis of the film itself gives the viewers an idea about Coraline Jones being an adventurous and inquisitive human; one of the major traits of an INFP personality.
She can also come across as both cheerful and reckless, depending on her state of being at that specific moment.
In addition, what gives the character sketch of Coraline Jones a definitive touch is a fact that she does not pay much heed to the opinion of others; rather, she is too occupied with working on her viewpoints about the world.
Since Coraline is a true-blue INFP, it is quite difficult for people to convince her.
Needless to say, more than anything or anyone else, she believes in her individuality and the power of her imagination.
29. Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables)
This motion picture, which is based on Lucy Maud Montgomery's novel of the same name, tracks the story of a red-haired orphan named Anne Shirley; someone who grows up on the farm of Matthew and his sister, Marilla.
Anne Shirley is on this list because she shares quite a few traits of a trademark INFP personality.
Since Anne is amazingly creative, she likes constructing stories in her mind and then tries to bring them to life along with her companions.
Her imaginative skills tag along with a desire to never let go of her principles.
Needless to say, Anne Shirley has got a decent sense of what she wants in life.
That said, what truly makes her stand out from the crowd is that she does not allow anybody to discourage her or question her thought process; something that also makes her equally exciting to be around.
28. Pacha (The Emperor's New Groove)
Helmed by Mark Dindal, 'The Emperor's New Groove' traces the journey of Emperor Kuzco, who, after getting transformed into a llama, has to seek Pacha's assistance.
Pacha is a sweet llama herder who now has the responsibility to make the Emperor regain his precious throne.
One of the chief characters in The Emperor's New Groove, Pacha adds a lot of flavor to this motion picture.
He is an INFP character not only because he plays a huge hand in turning Kuzco into an affectionate and dedicated Emperor from being someone who was previously sour and pompous.
Even though Pacha is not particularly fond of the Emperor, he keeps his personal issues aside and decides to help him turn back into a human; something that brings his selfless side to the fore and gives us a true-blue INFP personality.
27. Romeo Montague (Romeo and Juliet)
This Baz Luhrmann directorial venture is an on-screen adaptation of William Shakespeare's romantic tragedy that tells the eternal story of Romeo and Juliet.
The motion picture tracks how a rift between two well-off families hampers the romance between their children, Romeo and Juliet.
The character that we incorporate in this list is that of Romeo Montague; someone that a lot many INFPs will be pleased to read about.
Not only is Romeo driven by the values that he has inculcated since his very childhood, but he also often allows his heart to take over and make important decisions for him.
And, when the situation demands, he does not allow the strict rules and regulations of society to stop him from pursuing his dreams and turning them into a reality.
In addition, Romeo is also very instinctive and deep. Not only does he often speak in an allegorical manner, but he also allows himself to be thoroughly imaginative.
He tries to make his viewers understand the fact that they should follow their dreams if and when they have a chance to.
26. Fern Arable (Charlotte’s Web)
'Charlotte's Web' follows the story of a livestock pig named Wilbur and his understanding and camaraderie with a barn spider named Charlotte.
However, the character that we are including from this feature on this list is that of Fern Arable.
Fern Arable carries an INFP personality trait that makes her concerned and protective about things and people that she cares about.
While she has her values and a set of ethos to follow, she also has an affinity for those who are termed to be underdogs.
In addition, Fern is not only creative and someone who trusts her instincts, but also, in fact, the only human who attempts to understand the needs of animals at the farm.
People who embody certain characteristics of being an INFP will both comprehend and relate to this protective and creative character sketch of Fern Arable.
25. Cassie Ainsworth (Skins)
Portrayed by Hannah Murray, Cassie Ainsworth from the drama series 'Skins' is yet another character INFPs would relate to.
Cassie Ainsworth minds her own business and follows her own set of codes; irrespective of the fact that people could well be partying around her.
She can be tough around people when she wants to be and, yet, she is someone who longs for a deeper connection as her character continues to evolve throughout the series.
Even though Cassie Ainsworth is battling a few disorders, she still tries to be gentle-natured and friendly towards people who share an affinity for her.
Also, it has to be mentioned that like most INFPs, Cassie too can allow her logic to take a backseat and daydream; something that often reflects on her face when she is out and about.
That said, Cassie Ainsworth is also often misunderstood. This is because people misinterpret her because of her impersonal exterior and without realizing the fact that she has a fragile heart that can take an emotional hit in split seconds.
24. Charlie Kelmeckis (The Perks of Being a Wallflower)
Written and directed by Stephen Chbosky, 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' is based on his own novel of the same name.
The film traces the journey of Charlie; a 15-year-old introvert who is anxious about his new life after entering high school.
Even though our protagonist Charlie is an introvert, he is too observant to miss out on things that other people perhaps fail to catch.
This displays the one true characteristic of an INFP as some of them are excellent at discerning things that would usually be left unnoticed by people.
Furthermore, Charlie Kelmeckis is also an emotionally charged lad who can sob at the smallest of things.
Even a melody that manages to move his heart is enough to bring tears to his eyes; making him respond to his feelings almost instantaneously.
23. Eleanor “Nell” Crain (The Haunting of Hill House)
Created and directed by Mike Flanagan, 'The Haunting of Hill House' is a supernatural drama miniseries that features a lot many complex characters.
However, the people who embody the traits of being an INFP will admire the sketch of Nell Crain the most in this television series.
Unlike most of the people around her, Nell dares to follow her inquisitiveness and deepest fears at will; this despite the fact that she is able to keep herself both detached and distracted.
That said, like quite a few INFPs, she is also introverted; something that leads her to express her emotions and thoughts a lot less.
But, even though people might not be able to comprehend her completely, she does allow her intuition to see through things and people clearly.
22. Ellie Chu (The Half of It)
Director Alice Wu's 'The Half of It' is one of the finest coming-of-age romantic comedies to have been released in the past decade.
The film tracks how a Chinese-American student assists a school jock in charming a girl whom they both like.
Even though all the three main characters in the film are both equally believable and likable, it is Leah Lewis's Ellie Chu who stands out among the three.
She is an INFP in the sense that she is a calm and poised character who mostly keeps to herself.
Like most INFPs, Ellie Chu is creative and has great writing skills; something that is visible from the letters that she jots down for Aster.
In addition, Ellie Chu is also a romantic at heart and is a really good friend.
Not only does she care about Aster, but she also nurtures a decent friendship with Trig.
It won't be an exaggeration to claim that it was Ellie Chu's character sketch that uplifted the movie big time.
21. Mr. Miyagi (The Karate Kid)
'The Karate Kid' franchise has managed to leave a mark on the minds of the viewers who continue to revisit its films even to this very day.
The first movie in the series tracks the journey of a teenager named Daniel LaRusso.
Daniel does not really have things going for himself as he is often tormented by Johnny Lawrence.
To add to his woes, Johnny is a bully who is also quite proficient at martial arts.
Therefore, Daniel is left with no option but to fend for himself, and in order to do so, he gives his absolute best while trying to learn karate from Mr. Miyagi; a newfound mentor who is also a sorted handyman at his apartment.
Played by Pat Morita, Mr. Miyagi is a perfect INFP character. This is because he is not only compassionate, calm, and reticent as an individual, but also because he takes a lot of time to open up to people he is not familiar with.
Needless to say, he barely cares about people around him who tend to belittle him; primarily because he knows what his true worth is and does not believe in proving anything to anyone in his life.
That said, he soon develops a liking for Daniel and starts treating him like his own son.
Not only does Mr. Miyagi knows where his life stands, but he also helps Daniel break free from his greatest fears.
20. Todd Anderson (Dead Poets Society)
This Peter Weir directorial venture traces the journey of an English teacher named John Keating who motivates his pupils to leapfrog the sub-standard norms and do well for themselves.
The classic motion picture carries one character that embodies close-to-perfect traits of being an INFP personality.
The character is that of Todd Anderson and it has been enacted by Ethan Hawke.
Todd Anderson is a deep and dynamic character. He is reserved, silent, and someone who feels that his parents like his older brother better.
However, once he chances upon Robin Williams's John Keating, he tries to come out of his shell and steadily develops into a bold young man who stands up for what he believes is right.
Soon enough, Todd Anderson opens up about his feelings and, like a large number of INFPs, impresses everyone with his creativity; more specifically, poetry.
His character sketch is important also because it brings the novel's revolutionary essence and coming-of-age themes to light with élan.
19. Celine (Before Sunrise)
This Richard Linklater-helmed motion picture traces the journey of a young man and woman who meet each other on a train in Europe.
Our protagonist Celine is someone who shows signs of being an INFP personality in this immensely loved motion picture.
What segregates her from the rest on this list is the fact that besides being a decent speaker, she is also a good listener.
And, when she talks, she likes to refrain from making small talks; rather, the emphasis is on trying to talk about certain significant ideas that make sense.
Like most INFPs, Celine's charm lies in the fact that she does her best to understand what others mean to say.
She tries to not only decipher what lies in the other person’s heart, but she also fearlessly tries to understand what is there on their mind and work accordingly.
18. Dwayne Hoover (Little Miss Sunshine)
Directed by Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton, 'Little Miss Sunshine' is a hugely acclaimed family drama that thrives on its strong star cast.
The bittersweet story in this feature film follows a family that voyages across the country to help their beloved daughter partake in a beauty pageant.
That said, Dwayne is one character to look out for in this movie. He is visibly young and is battling to discover himself as a person and his true worth in life.
He also shows traits as an INFP personality after he stops communicating altogether, until and unless his parents allow him to follow his dream of becoming a pilot.
Even though modest, Dwayne is a competent and skillful personality who comes across as rather distinct in this family flick.
However, what sets Dwayne apart from other characters in the screenplay here is the fact that he hopes to figure things out even after realizing that he may be color blind.
17. Edward Scissorhands (Edward Scissorhands)
Helmed by Tim Burton, this fantasy drama has managed to amass a cult following over the years.
The film traces the journey of a synthetic man with scissor hands named Edward. Things start to go haywire for him after he is taken in by a kind woman and accused of a crime that he did not commit.
Edward Scissorhands is one of Johnny Depp's finest on-screen portrayals. He plays the calm and contemplative Edward with a subtle charm and manages to charm the viewer right from the first time he appears on the screen.
Edward is an empathetic individual who may not completely understand the people who surround him, but he cares for them at heart.
Not only does he try to make his new family understand what it is that is most important in life, but he also commands an imaginative presence outside of his home environment.
Needless to say, a lot of INFP personality traits are more than visible in this character sketch.
16. Will Graham (Red Dragon)
Director Brett Ratner's 'Red Dragon' traces the journey of an FBI Agent who is asked to come out of retirement for a solid reason; one that requires him to nab a serial killer.
However, in order to ensure that his mission is a success, he has to request the assistance of Dr. Hannibal Lecter. The character of Will Graham, portrayed by the superb Edward Norton, is not only street smart, but also empathetic by nature.
Nowhere is this more visible than when Will Graham is seen trying to put himself in the killer's shoes and reckoning how he commits his crimes.
He does his best to compile a profile that would help the authorities in concern to understand who they're looking for.
Besides being clever and empathetic, Edward Norton's Will also comes across as soft and thoughtful.
Not only that, but he is also daring and caring in equal measure. This is something that is more than apparent in his consistent attempts to help law enforcement with their work.
For someone like Will Graham who cares too much about his work, it is only a given that he would care as much about his wife and his child.
And, he sure does.
15. Elio Perlman (Call Me By Your Name)
Helmed for the screen by Luca Guadagnino, 'Call Me By Your Name' traces the coming-of-age journey of a teenager named Elio Perlman who develops feelings for his father's assistant, Oliver.
The critically acclaimed coming-of-age romantic drama Call Me By Your Name gives us Elio Perlman; a character that embodies several traits of being an INFP.
Even though he is sharp and duly aware, he is daring enough to allow his emotions to take over.
Sometimes, logic does not make sense and Elio makes it clear that his viewers know that; a reason why he wears his heart on his sleeve and is quite proud of it.
Also, since he is both sensitive and intelligent, he often likes to resort to reading and spend time alone; just him and his very many thoughts.
Credit has to be given to Timothee Chalamet for playing the character with remarkable efficiency.
14. Sabrina Fairchild (Sabrina)
Seldom does it happen that a film that stars Humphrey Bogart is headlined by another actor.
Acclaimed director Billy Wilder makes it possible with 'Sabrina', featuring Audrey Hepburn as the main protagonist.
Audrey Hepburn's Sabrina is an adorable character who is as hungry for love as a normal human.
However, since she is someone who carries the traits of being an INFP, she is able to handle her emotions well; something that is illustrated with her evolution in the movie.
That said, Sabrina seems to have lent her heart to a man named David and she is willing to do everything that she can in order to go win his attention and appreciation.
However, like quite a few INFPs, Sabrina fails to be understood and David dismisses her feelings.
One reason why Audrey Hepburn aces the character sketch that shows Sabrina's yearning for affection and her ultimate growth is because she was herself classified to be an INFP in real-life.
13. Jamie Sullivan (A Walk to Remember)
This Adam Shankman directorial venture is based on Nicholas Sparks's novel of the same name.
The screenplay tracks how Landon Carter is allocated community service after having gotten himself in a crisis.
One of the punishments there requires him to participate in the spring play. However, cupid strikes during the spring play as he falls head over heels in love with the reverend's daughter, Jamie Sullivan.
The very competent Mandy Moore played Jamie Sullivan to near perfection in this motion picture.
Jamie's inclusion in this list can be justified because she was someone who lived a modest and reserved life.
She did not have a lot of friends in school and she did not quite mind that.
That said, she barely ever cared about what people thought about her. In fact, she only became comfortable in Landon Carter's presence after having spent a lot of time with and around him.
However, what truly makes her a true blue INFP personality and adds a whole lot of energy to the character is the fact that she never lets go of the faith that she carries in her heart; something that is evident even when she is breathing her last in the movie.
12. Tom Hansen (500 Days of Summer)
Directed by Marc Webb, '500 Days of Summer' is one feature film that has managed to evoke emotions among people who have watched it.
The film tracks the journey of Tom who reexamines the one year that he has shared with Summer, his ex-girlfriend.
Even though he felt that she was someone he could have spent all his life with, it barely mattered anymore because the girl never believed in the idea of playing a part in a relationship or having a boyfriend.
Since Tom Hansen is one of the main protagonists in the motion picture, a lot of the story encircles his mind-numbing detachment from his longtime girlfriend.
Played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hansen shows quite a few negative characters of an INFP personality.
This is primarily because he takes everything a bit too seriously and ceases to change his conduct for anyone else.
While in the relationship, he often comes across as clingy and follows a monotonous routine every day; one that has made him incredulously habituated to his girlfriend.
This is precisely why he continues to take a lot of time to come out of the breakup.
Having said that, Tom Hansen also has a good side to himself. He is that rare character who epitomizes both the good and negative INFP qualities.
He can be creative and surprising when he wants to be and his only goal in life feels like it is to bring peace to himself and those around him.
11. Lucy Pevensie (The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe)
This Andrew Adamson directorial venture creates a fantasy land that has continued to enthrall its child viewers across the world to this very day.
The film tracks the journey of Lucy and her siblings who find their way to a mystical place called Narnia.
Among the four sibling characters, it is Lucy Pevensie who is the youngest of the Pevensie siblings.
Be that as it may, she is a close-to-perfect INFP character; something that is visible in her honest sanguinity and innocent idealism.
She is better than her sibling in accepting the reality of Narnia and rather than taking control of the environment, she makes best use of it.
After having been the first one to discover Narnia, she also continues to win hearts by being open-minded and friendly with creatures of that magical world.
In addition, as little as she may be, she does succeed in making her siblings a bit more accepting of things in the fantastical realm of Narnia; all while motivating Aslan to fight against the White Witch and her troops.
10. Brandon "Bran" Stark (Game of Thrones)
'Game of Thrones' is quite possibly the most renowned series of the contemporary era. Among a host of popular characters, the one that comes extremely close to being an INFP is that of Brandon Stark; especially before he transforms into the three-eyed raven.
Like most characters in the series, Brandon"Bran" Stark also has a lot of emotions bottled up in his heart.
And, even though he decides not to exhibit them as the others do, he has his way of dealing with cumbersome thoughts and circumstances.
He is someone who believes in the idea that not everyone around you is capable of understanding how you feel deep within.
Brandon Stark also gives prominence to values that he has grown up with as a child.
Not only is he the most compassionate of all characters in the series, but his heart is full of mercy and forgiveness; a rare trait for a character to retain not just in the series, but also in this mortal world.
That said, like most INFPs, Brandon Stark can also turn out to be a bit stubborn when he wants to.
Nowhere is this more apparent than when he dismisses his mother's warning and decides to climb the dreadful wall.
9. Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock)
Sherlock Holmes is one character that cannot be played by every actor and, yet, it has been attempted by quite a few.
Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the eponymous character in this British series, and one could argue that his role-play comprises qualities that are best found in an INFP personality.
Sherlock Holmes, who is known for his extraordinary deductive abilities, initially comes across as an arrogant genius.
However, as the series progresses, one cannot deny the fact that his vulnerabilities and emotions are also made subtly visible.
This timeless character can also be compassionate and considerate when he wants to be. Furthermore, he is as creative as it could be humanly possible; something that becomes evident when Sherlock Holmes uses his mind to make sense of and plot things.
That said, imaginative as he may be, Sherlock Holmes is often awkward and someone who avoids social interaction whenever possible.
Like most INFPs, this brilliant detective can also turn out to be surprisingly humorous or extremely difficult to please; depending on the situation.
Not surprisingly then, Sherlock Holmes is one character that nobody could ever get tired of watching.
8. Frodo Baggins (The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy)
Based on the books written by J. R. R. Tolkien, 'The Lord of the Rings' is an astonishing series of three marvelous fantasy adventure drama motion pictures, each of which has been helmed for the big screen with great efficiency by director Peter Jackson.
Frodo Baggins is one of the central characters in this much-loved trilogy. Since Frodo is considered to be responsible, he is under obligation to demolish the ring with hostile characteristics.
Frodo shows the first markers of being an INFP in the sense that he is never over-ambitious.
All he wants to do is to try and sustain a decent lifestyle that does not require him to be a hero and one that is devoid of both over-the-top theatrics or explorations.
All he wishes to be is "normal". Showing the usual traits of an INFP, Frodo gets easily uncomfortable around people he does not know or in terrain that he is not particularly familiar with.
Having said that, he does show signs of enthusiasm and courage when he needs to.
Add to that the fact that he even makes it clear that he is inclined to put his life at risk if it benefits the world in any way.
7. Hermione Granger (The Harry Potter Franchise)
The Harry Potter film franchise is based on the eponymous novels by J. K. Rowling.
Among a plethora of likable characters that grace the screen in eight of the movies of the franchise, the one that stands out is that of Hermione Granger.
This extremely popular character, that was played with unreal potential by actor Emma Watson, exhibits a lot many traits of an INFP personality.
Not only is she super smart and mild-mannered, but she can also be incredibly tough to please.
In addition, she is way too practical for the kids her age; something that leads to her being called the "brightest witch of her class".
Hermione is often as complex as they come. Even though she risks coming across as arrogant, she is far too charming once she is comfortable with the people around her.
Also, she may be a tad reserved but she is a very loyal and loving friend.
6. Atticus Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird)
Set in the Depression era, the film tells the story of Atticus Finch; a brave lawyer who goes out of his way to defend a black man.
However, Atticus is denounced not only because he is defending someone who has been accused of raping a white woman, but also because he is defending a black man in the court of law.
Director Robert Mulligan's 'To Kill A Mockingbird' is based on Harper Lee's novel of the same name.
Our protagonist Atticus Finch carries a few notable traits of being an INFP character. Not only he is composed and reflective as a person, but also amazingly compassionate towards his profession.
This is evident from the fact that he takes on the case of defending a black man, even after he is discredited by society.
In addition, Atticus Finch is an ethical genius who knows he has to fight for justice.
He is duly aware of his surroundings, which is why he strives to take better care of his children; something that also casts a light on his gentle and loving nature as a father.
5. Luke Skywalker (Star Wars)
This film series that was created by George Lucas is now officially one of the most profitable and significant movie franchises in the rich world of cinema.
And, the next name on this list barely needs an introduction. One of the most renowned characters in both the cinematic universe and in the history of pop culture, Luke Skywalker had a humble start, but he soon turned out to be one of the finest Jedi the galaxy has ever had the privilege to know.
Manifesting characteristics of an INFP personality, he was the hope that toppled the Empire and did his best to bring peace back to the galaxy in Star Wars.
However, what makes Luke Skywalker relatable to us is the fact that just like us, it took him a while to acknowledge his destiny.
Even though he lacked belief and familiarity, he did benefit from the sanguinity and honest intentions that his personality carried.
Not only did these traits turn him into a warrior of sorts, but they also assisted him in becoming the most influential Jedi to have ever lived.
4. Wanda Maximoff (The Marvel Cinematic Universe)
Wanda Maximoff is one character that has featured in a lot many global smash hits.
She comes across as someone who is both considerate and detached as a person. This is partly because her upbringing has left her emotionally vulnerable.
After losing Vision, she goes on the wrong path detaching herself from reality and creating a separate world for herself where her dreams are all fulfilled.
Still, at the core of her heart, she's a good person, and on occasions, she needs help remembering it.
3. Arthur Fleck (Joker)
Directed by Todd Phillips and starring Joaquin Phoenix in the lead, 'Joker' was one of the finest feature films to have hit the screens in 2019.
Not only is this movie an outstanding continuation of an already popular character, but it also brings to light several traits that make its lead protagonist come across as an INFP personality.
As the viewers empathize with Arthur Fleck, they notice that Arthur himself is an empathetic and rather misunderstood individual.
His compassion towards his mother and coworker is apparent and so is his grief when others make fun of him.
That said, what makes Arthur Fleck connect in the true sense of the word is the fact that he is longing for real-life connections himself.
Even though he comes across as both gauche and bizarre, Arthur is also quite determined and his human side can be seen when he tries to be humorous.
Like most INFPs, "Joker" also feels that the world does not pay any heed to his fragile heart and that makes him feel like he has been trapped in an inescapable mess for the longest time.
2. Belle (Beauty and the Beast)
'Beauty and the Beast' is an eternal story that has managed to enamor both its viewers and readers across the globe for the longest time.
The tale follows a beautiful young woman named Belle who has to live with the Beast if she wants her abducted father to return.
Belle is a beauty with a brain. Even though she is the most wonderful girl in her town, she is incredibly down-to-earth and simple.
All she cares about is her beloved father. It is this simplicity of Belle that gets the better of her captor.
Once she discovers who the Beast truly is, her positive approach ascertains that he has a sudden change of heart, and for the right reasons.
Not only that but she also becomes responsible for his transformation back to human. Needless to say, Belle is one INFP character who makes us believe that with compassion, care, and the right attitude, one can truly conquer hearts.
1. Rose DeWitt Bukater (Titanic)
Director James Cameron's magnum opus 'Titanic' is among the most-watched movies in the history of cinema.
The disaster drama gives its hardcore fans Kate Winslet's Rose DeWitt Bukater; a character most of the INFPs would be glad to have on this list.
Even though she can get vulnerable at times, Rose is a headstrong girl who does not fear making her own decisions, despite being surrounded by a rigid family.
She has an eye for art and craft and feels quite deeply about the things and people that she cares for; something that comes to the fore when she lets her heart fall for Jack Dawson and, ultimately, determine the course of her life.
Like several INFPs, Rose is loyal to the people that she adores and goes to extreme lengths to support them.
Although she wants to be free, freedom means nothing to her if she does not have Jack by her side.
She is determined, empathetic, and thoughtful in equal measure. Kate Winslet's award-winning portrayal of Rose is a message to the viewers to hold on to people who matter the most in life, for it barely ever happens that you find someone who truly loves you and wants to look out for you from the core of their heart.
