Top 50 Best Fictional INFP Characters Of All Time

INFP Characters


As an audience, we hardly come across motion pictures that do not feature any character. Having characters in a 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 personality traits that they embody.


While some of them end up making us love them for who they are, others compel us to scrutinize them to get to the core of their complex personalities. 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 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 the type 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 usually introverts, they communicate better through their writing, music, art, or any other mode of communication, which may or may not be direct. That said, there are two sides to an INFP person.


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 at times. 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.


So, let’s now 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 our minds over time.




1. Rose DeWitt Bukater (Titanic)


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 find at the top of our 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, the girl 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. And, yes, Winslet’s award-winning portrayal of the same is a message to us to hold on to people who matter the most to us in our lives, for they only make us better with the passage of time.




2. Belle (Beauty and the Beast)


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.


Needless to say, her simplicity and caring nature manage to get the better of her captor. Once she discovers who the Beast truly is, her positive approach towards him ascertains that he has a sudden change of heart.


Not only that but she also becomes responsible for his eventual transformation. Indeed, Belle is one INFP character who makes us believe that with compassion, care, and the right attitude, one can truly conquer hearts.




3. Arthur Fleck (Joker)


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 the 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.


As we empathize with Arthur Fleck, we realize that he is an empathetic and rather misunderstood individual. His compassion towards his mother and coworker is apparent and so is his grief when others mock him.


That said, what makes him connect to us in the true sense of the word is his longing for real-life connections. Even though he comes across as gauche and bizarre, Arthur is also quite determined, and his human side comes to the fore 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’s been trapped in an inescapable mess for the longest time.




4. Wanda Maximoff (The Marvel Cinematic Universe)


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 path of detaching herself from reality and creating a separate world for herself where her dreams are all fulfilled. Deep within, she’s a good person, and, at times, she needs help remembering it.



5. Luke Skywalker (Star Wars)


Luke Skywalker (Star Wars)


One of the most renowned characters in both the cinematic universe and in the history of pop culture, Luke Skywalker had a humble beginning. 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, he is the hope that topples the Empire and does his best to bring peace back to the galaxy in Star Wars. However, what makes him relatable to us is the fact that, just like us mortals, it took him a while to acknowledge his destiny.


Even though Luke lacked belief, he did benefit from the sanguinity and honest intentions of his admirable personality. Not only did these traits turn him into a warrior but they also assisted him in becoming the most influential Jedi to have ever lived.



6. Atticus Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird)


Atticus Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird)


Set in the Depression era, ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ 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 a court of law.


Finch carries a few notable traits of being an INFP. Not only he is organized and reflective as a person but he is 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, he 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.



7. Frodo Baggins (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy)


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 he is a responsible lad, 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 is, therefore, devoid of over-the-top theatrics. All he wishes to be is “normal”.


Showing the usual traits of an INFP, he gets easily uncomfortable around people he does not know or in terrains that he is unfamiliar with. That said, he does show signs of enthusiasm and courage when he must.


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.



8. Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock)


Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock)


Sherlock Holmes is one character that cannot be recreated by every actor and, yet, has been attempted by quite a few. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the eponymous character in the British series ‘Sherlock’, and one could argue that his role-play comprises qualities that are best found in an INFP.


Holmes, who is known for his extraordinary deductive abilities, initially comes across as an arrogant genius. However, as the series progresses, 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 may be humanly possible. As imaginative as he may be, Sherlock is a gauche individual who tends to avoid social interaction.


Like most INFPs, the brilliant detective can also turn out to be surprisingly humorous or extremely difficult to please.



9. Amélie Poulain (Amélie)


Amélie Poulain (Amélie)


The titular character of the critically acclaimed French-language romantic comedy film Amélie comes across as an INFP. As the story progresses, we realize that her vibrant inner world is driven by fantasies.


Therefore, it doesn’t take a lot for us to comprehend that the amazing Amélie Poulain showcases the imaginative aspect of the INFP personality type. Also, she is more than comfortable observing people from a fair distance and would rather just aim to interact with the ones she feels comfortable with.


However, the true INFP in her takes center-stage when we catch her showing empathy and deriving joy from performing anonymous acts of kindness. Needless to say, the girl’s story is full of whimsical charm just like her heart is filled with compassion.



10. Ariel (The Little Mermaid)


Ariel (The Little Mermaid)


This mermaid princess is someone who most young adults, especially girls, relate to in a big way. And, why not? She’s an INFP after all. Even though Ariel has been told that human civilization is not trustworthy and corrupted, she secretly contemplates the human world.


While her introverted side is revealed in her secret grotto, her intuition and knack for exploring lead her to seek a world far more complex than her own. Indeed, her tenacity and courage do reveal her craving for exploration and independence.


But, her several emotional decisions and love for Eric go on to showcase how badly she wants someone to understand her situation.



11. Brandon “Bran” Stark (Game of Thrones)


Brandon "Bran" Stark (Game of Thrones)


Among a slew of popular ‘Game of Thrones’ characters, the one that comes extremely close to being an INFP is Brandon Stark; especially before he transforms into the three-eyed raven.


Like most characters in the series, he also has a lot of emotions bottled up in his heart. And, even though he decides not to exhibit them, he has his own way of dealing with his cumbersome thoughts and circumstances.


He subtly conveys that not everyone around you is capable of understanding how you feel deep within. Bran also gives prominence to values that he has grown up with as a child.


Since he’s the most compassionate of all characters, his heart is full of mercy and forgiveness. That said, like most INFPs, he can also turn out to be 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.



12. Lucy Pevensie (The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe)


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 young viewers across the world to this 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. Nevertheless, she is a close-to-perfect INFP character; something that is visible in her honest sanguinity and innocent idealism.


She is better than her siblings in accepting the reality of Narnia. And, rather than taking control of the environment, she strives to make the 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, she succeeds in making her siblings a bit more accepting of things in the fantastical realm; all while motivating Aslan to fight the wicked White Witch and her troops.



13. Moana (Moana)


Moana (Moana)


Moana is yet another Disney royalty who embodies a few notable qualities of an INFP. While the Polynesian princess showcases her courage at important junctures in the story, her introspective side also comes to the fore when she ponders her destiny and her deep connection to the ocean.


The compassionate girl is no damsel in distress and her understanding of her tradition in a world that has taken to indifference makes her stand out from the rest in our story.


Add to that the fact that Moana carries the gifted ability to relate to people on an emotional level. Needless to say, her selfless and emphatic side help her in her voyage of self-discovery.



14. Lisa Simpson (The Simpsons)


Lisa Simpson (The Simpsons)


Lisa Simpson from the acclaimed cartoon series ‘The Simpson’ is yet another worthy addition to our write-up. She is an INFP not only because she is the smartest character in the Simpson family but also because her intellect and ideologies are often in conflict with the members of her household.


Oftentimes, she feels that she is not being able to be comprehended by the people that she loves. Either way, Lisa stands by what she believes is right and is seen speaking her mind even when it may not entirely be reasonable for her to.


Even though she can come across as soft and vulnerable at times, she is determined enough to follow her heart; a trait that makes her a true-blue INFP. In addition, she has a creative mind which is highlighted by her love for music.



15. Mulan (Mulan)


Mulan (Mulan)


The warrior princess from ‘Mulan’ and her incredible story of grit and strength make us believe that she embodies several traits of the INFP personality. Soon into the story, we find the girl trying to introspect her identity while making peace with her place in the world.


While we appreciate her intuitive decision to take her father’s place in the army, we also understand that it highlights the Intuitive aspect of her personality. Indeed, most of Mulan’s decisions and actions are not only driven by the responsibilities she shoulders but also by her love for her family.



16. Marshall Eriksen (How I Met Your Mother)


marshall eriksen (how i met your mother)


Marshall Eriksen and his life are pretty much the backbone of the supremely popular television series How I Met Your Mother. While his love story with Lily Aldrin is one to die for, it is he who manages to make the most of it, in our humble opinion.


The guy thrives on his strong moral compass and is almost always polite; unless he is really pushed to lose his calm. He has a great value system that encourages him to lend a helping hand to his beloved friends. Better still, he cares a lot about the life of his life and is willing to go to any lengths to make her happy.


Marshall may have a big outer appearance but his heart is as soft as one’s can be. That’s one reason why he is easily taken advantage of by his fellow employees at his workplace. Be that as it may, he never allows his poor experiences to get the better of the positivity that he exudes.



17. Tom Hansen (500 Days of Summer)


Tom Hansen (500 Days of Summer)


Directed by Marc Webb, ‘500 Days of Summer’ is one film that has managed to evoke a ton of polarizing sentiments among people who’ve seen it. The film tracks the journey of Tom, who analyzes the year that he’s shared with Summer, his ex-girlfriend.


Since he 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 shows a few negative traits of the INFP personality type.


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 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 takes a lot of time to come out of the breakup. That said, Hansen also has a good side to his personality. In fact, 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 is to bring peace to himself and those around him.



18. E.T. (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial)


E.T. (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial) 


Steven Spielberg and his team created an empathic alien for those who firmly believed that extraterrestrials were only bad news and couldn’t be trusted; especially not with our lives and families.


As you sit through the engrossing story, you realize that E. T. is a true-blue INFP. Not only does he end up forming an organic emotional connection with Elliott but he also showcases his ability to understand and express human emotions.


While his presence makes Elliott’s life fun, complete, and adventurous, the boy does acknowledge that his beloved alien friend is longing for home. Suffice it to say, this Spielberg creation touches upon the INFP’s deep longing for authentic connections.


Add to that the fact that E. T. is capable of bringing peace and healing to Elliot’s life; all while trying to withstand the challenges the mortal world keeps throwing at him relentlessly.



19. Jamie Sullivan (A Walk to Remember)


Jamie Sullivan (A Walk to Remember)


In Adam Shankman’s ‘A Walk to Remember’, the competent Mandy Moore plays Jamie Sullivan to near perfection. Jamie’s inclusion in our story stems from the fact that she believes in living a modest and reserved life.


She does not have a lot of friends in school and she doesn’t seem to mind that. Also, she barely cares about what most people think of her. That said, she goes on to become comfortable in Landon Carter’s presence after having spent a lot of time with him.


However, what truly makes her an INFP and adds a whole lot of energy to her personality is 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 story.



20. Elio Perlman (Call Me By Your Name)


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.


Elio embodies several traits of an INFP. Not only is he sharp and duly aware but he is also daring enough to allow his emotions to take over. Sometimes, logic takes a backseat to an otherwise intelligent Elio, who wears his heart on his sleeve and is quite proud of it.


Also, since he is both sensitive and intelligent, he likes to resort to reading and spending time alone; just him and his very many thoughts. Credit has to be given to Timothee Chalamet for playing the character with remarkable conviction.



21. Will Graham (Red Dragon)


Will Graham (Red Dragon)


Will Graham, portrayed by the superb Edward Norton, is a street-smart and empathetic character who is seen trying to put himself in the killer’s shoes to understand how he commits his crimes.


He does his best to compile a profile that would help the authorities to comprehend who they’re looking for. Besides being clever and empathetic, Will also comes across as soft and thoughtful at times.


Not only that but he is also daring and caring in equal measure. This becomes apparent through his consistent attempts to help law enforcement with their work. For someone like Graham who cares much about his work, it is only a given that he would care even more about his wife and his child.



22. Edward Scissorhands (Edward Scissorhands)


Edward Scissorhands (Edward Scissorhands)


‘Edward Scissorhands’ traces the journey of its titular synthetic man with scissor hands. Things start to go south 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 delight us right from the first time he appears on the screen.


He is an empathetic individual who may not completely understand the people around him, but he cares for them deeply; even though they end up mistaking him for being a merciless criminal.


That said, he’s seen trying to make his new family understand what it is that is most important in life. Needless to say, a lot of INFP personality traits are visible in his character sketch.



23. Michael Ross (Suits)


michael ross (suits)


Those who have followed the incredibly popular Suits believe that Mike seems to blur the lines between ISFP and INFP. However, we have strong reasons to believe that his persona tilts towards the latter.


Often driven by his emotions as seen early on in this series, he tends to get emotionally connected to his clients, which may not exactly be the right thing to do in his field of work. However, over time, he understands that staying true to his identity is the best possible way to go about things.


Add to that the fact that Ross also seems to be extremely faithful and sentimental, as seen in the rapport that he shares with Trevor. That said, what truly defines him is his will to succeed. Indeed, he can perceive and adapt to things wonderfully and is also often quick on his feet, both verbally and literally.



24. Chihiro (Spirited Away)


Chihiro (Spirited Away)


Chihiro from the popular film ‘Spirited Away’ embodies the Mediator personality of an INFP. While her tenacity helps her in adapting to the spirit world, her innate sensitivity toward both mortals and spirits brings the INFP in her to the fore.


The fact that she can feel and resonate with most things and people around her is only aided by her ability to reflect on her identity and sense of belonging.


Sure, she is an introvert who perhaps believes in the power of introspection but she is also someone who carries the courage to help others spontaneously. As the movie progresses, we see how her experiences lead her on a path of personal growth; a growth that wouldn’t have been possible if she wasn’t as emphatic and resilient as she was.



25. Dwayne Hoover (Little Miss Sunshine)


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. Its bittersweet story follows a family that voyages across the country to help their beloved daughter partake in a beauty pageant.


Dwayne is one character to look out for in this movie. He is a visibly young lad who is fighting to discover his true worth in life. He also shows traits of an INFP when he stops communicating altogether; until his parents allow him to follow his dream of becoming a pilot.


Even though modest, Dwayne is a competent and skillful character who comes across as a breath of fresh air in this family flick.



26. Celine (Before Sunrise)


Celine (Before Sunrise)


‘Before Sunrise’ traces the journey of a young man and woman who meet each other on a train in Europe. Our protagonist Celine shows signs of being an INFP in this immensely loved motion picture.


What segregates her from the rest on this list is that besides being a decent speaker, she is also a good listener. And, when she talks, she likes to refrain from making small talk.


The idea is to chat about ideas that hold some significance in life. Like most INFPs, Celine’s charm lies in the fact that she does her best to understand what others mean to communicate. She not only tries to decipher what lies in the other person’s heart but also fearlessly tries to understand what is there on their mind, and respond accordingly.



27. Todd Anderson (Dead Poets Society)


Todd Anderson (Dead Poets Society)


‘Dead Poets Society’ is a classic motion picture that comprises one character that embodies close-to-perfect traits of being an INFP. Todd Anderson, portrayed by Ethan Hawke, is a deep and emotional character.


He is reserved, silent, and insecure about his parents liking 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 in.


Sooner than later, he opens up to those around him and goes on to impress everyone with his poetry. His character sketch is important because it brings the novel’s revolutionary essence and coming-of-age themes to light with élan.



28. Hiccup (How to Train Your Dragon)


Hiccup (How to Train Your Dragon)


Anyone who’s seen the movies in the ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ franchise can tell that Hiccup has a knack for inventing. He does not only carry the ability to empathize with other humans but he also has a unique approach to understanding dragons.


His transformative friendship with Toothless showcases him as a compassionate individual and goes on to elucidate his eventual struggle to reconcile his identity with societal expectations. Like a true INFP, Hiccup does not give up for his is a story of resilience, trust, and compassion.


And, of course, he understands the need for relationships and is, therefore, able to form one with a dragon.



29. Eleanor “Nell” Crain (The Haunting of Hill House)


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, people who embody certain INFP traits will be able to see through Nell Crain in the show.


Unlike most people around her, she dares to follow her inquisitiveness and deepest fears at will; all while keeping herself detached and distracted from the material world. That said, she is also quite introverted, which is perhaps why she expresses 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.



30. Charlie Kelmeckis (The Perks of Being a Wallflower)


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 is an introvert, he is too watchful 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, Kelmeckis is also an emotionally charged lad who can sob at the tiniest 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.



31. Cassie Ainsworth (Skins)


Cassie Ainsworth (Skins)


Portrayed by Hannah Murray, Cassie Ainsworth from the drama series ‘Skins’ is yet another character INFPs would relate to. Cassie minds her own business and follows her own set of codes.


She can be tough around people when she wants to be and, yet, is someone who longs for a deeper connection. Even though she is battling a few disorders, she still tries to be gentle-natured and friendly towards people who are fond of 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 wandering.


That said, Ainsworth is also often misunderstood because of her tough exterior. People cease to realize that she has a fragile heart that can take an emotional hit in split seconds.



32. Fern Arable (Charlotte’s Web)


Fern Arable (Charlotte’s Web)


‘Charlotte’s Web’ follows the story of a livestock pig named Wilbur and his camaraderie with a barn spider named Charlotte. However, the character that we are including from this feature is Fern Arable, who carries an INFP 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. Fern is not only a creative girl who trusts her instincts but she is also the only human who attempts to understand the needs of animals at the farm.


People who embody the characteristics of an INFP will both comprehend and relate to the protective and creative side of Arable.



33. Romeo Montague (Romeo and Juliet)


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 shows how a rift between two well-off families hampers the romance between their children, Romeo and Juliet.


Romeo is an INFP because he is driven by the values that he’s inculcated since his childhood. However, he also allows his heart to take over and make important decisions for him from time to time.


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 very instinctive and deep.


Not only does he speak in an allegorical manner but he also allows himself to be thoroughly imaginative.



34. Pacha (The Emperor’s New Groove)


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, he adds a lot of flavor to the motion picture. He is an INFP because he plays a huge supporting role in turning the sour and pompous Kuzco into an affectionate and dedicated Emperor.


Even though Pacha is not fond of the Emperor, he keeps his personal issues aside and helps him in turning back into a human; something that brings his selfless side to the fore and gives us a true-blue INFP marker.



35. Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables)


Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables)


This motion picture, which is based on Lucy Maud Montgomery’s novel of the same name, tracks the journey of a red-haired orphan named Anne Shirley, who grows up on Matthew and his sister’s farm.


Anne is amazingly creative and likes to construct stories in her mind. Better still, she then tries to bring them to life with her companions. Her imaginative skills tag along with her desire to never let go of her principles.


Needless to say, she seems to have got a sense of what she wants in her life. That said, what truly makes her stand out 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.



36. Coraline Jones (Coraline)


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. First things first, the synopsis of the film itself gives us an idea about Coraline being an adventurous and inquisitive human; two of the major traits of an INFP.


She can also come across as both cheerful and reckless, depending on her state of being at the time. In addition, what gives her character a definitive touch is the fact that she does not pay much heed to the opinion of others; rather, she is too occupied with working on her viewpoints.


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.



37. Will Byers (Stranger Things)


Will Byers (Stranger Things)


There is no denying the fact that ‘Stranger Things’ is one of the most popular series in the world today. Will Byers, who is the face of the series in many ways, is an INFP not only because he is considerate and accountable for his actions but also because he goes to extreme lengths to support his friends.


That said, he 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.


Will is often seen trying to sail through life by creatively drawing. Also, this kind-hearted boy is 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 most.


On the flip side, this is what makes the audience empathize with him even more.



38. Jane Eyre (Jane Eyre)


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 destroy her life forever.


Jane is a solid INFP character 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.


And, her appetite for connections is also coupled with her simultaneous desire for sovereignty. That said, she is an INFP also because she is inspiring in many ways. She strives to encourage us to maintain our dignity even during the most unfortunate times.


For women, she sets a new benchmark by following her judgment, while trying to make them understand their true worth.



39. Elisa Esposito (The Shape of Water)


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 the INFP personality type.


Aside from coming across as compassionate and imaginative, she can also be seen turning into a dreamer of sorts. This is because she is oblivious to the aspects that make her life hollow and mundane and, therefore, often daydreams about a fantastical land.


In addition, she goes out of the way and does the extraordinary when she falls in love with an amphibian man. Needless to say, she demonstrates how INFPs may fall for someone based on their authenticity and caring nature, rather than the superficial aspects that human beings are driven by.


Moreover, Elisa not only falls in love with someone who is deemed an outcast by society but she also ends up making friends with a host of personalities who are seen as misfits, to say the least.



40. Sadness (Inside Out)


Sadness (Inside Out)


Arguably the most unconventional “character” to make it to this list, Sadness is one of Riley’s emotions from the film ‘Inside Out’. She takes charge in the story after the girl and her parents move to San Francisco.


Sadness is an INFP in the sense that she is a bit insecure about her actions not being able to bring Riley peace. However, unbeknownst to her, this makes her both caring and empathetic in equal measure.


In addition, she is 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.


Even though she has a lot to share, she tries to conceal her emotions and waits for others to understand her needs; a trait that makes her come off as needy.



41. Peter Parker (Spider-Man)


Peter Parker (Spiderman)


A childhood hero for many, ‘Spider-Man’ is one of the most popular 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 the INFP personality type.


Tobey Maguire’s Peter is sort of an underdog. He is reticent and socially awkward but also devoted to the people he admires. In addition, he is a traditional romantic from within.


This becomes evident even after the person that he likes starts going out with someone else. Even though this makes him come across as a bit too cinematic, it does underscore the fact that he never lets go of the ones that he loves.



42. Luca Paguro (Luca)


Luca Paguro (Luca)


Voiced by the talented Jacob Tremblay, Luca Paguro is an INFP who not only fancies adventures but also believes in exploring a variety of ideas, lifestyles, and experiences to make the most of his life.


So, while you may find the good-natured guy striving to make the world around him better, he is also someone who gives equal importance to bringing an experimental attitude to life.


Luca manages to bring the true INFP in him to the fore when he shows his exceptional ability to understand people. It is not surprising then that most people trust his assessment and visit him for guidance from time to time.


Like a true INFP, he believes in the power of listening and empathizing with those who come to him. Therefore, he takes little time to make them comfortable and share their thoughts with him.



43. Ramona Flowers (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World)


Ramona Flowers (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World)


Edgar Wright’s ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ shows how Scott Pilgrim meets Ramona Flowers and falls head over heels in love with her almost immediately. Portrayed by the mesmerizing Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ramona is one INFP character to watch out for.


She has a capricious charm to her persona and comes across as enigmatic; something that is often common with trademark INFPs. Since she keeps to herself and has a magnetic pull to her personality, she continues to be desired by all of her exes in the story.


What gives a definitive edge to her character is the fact that she refuses to conform; something that is evident from her uniquely colored hair. Needless to say, she is a strong individual who does not try hard to make a space for herself in the crowd, and this makes her even more attractive.



44. Newt Scamander (Fantastic Beasts: Crimes Of Grindelwald)


Newt Scamander (Fantastic Beasts: Crimes Of Grindelwald)


In this David Yates directorial venture, we are able to relate to Newt Scamander, who cares about animals deeply. 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 lives in. His compassion for animals comes to the fore when he travels across the world to learn about magical creatures and how to safeguard them.


Scamander is a brilliant and kind-hearted character who incorporates several traits of an INFP personality. He has been played efficiently by a hard-working Eddie Redmayne.



45. Bella Swan (The Twilight Franchise)


Bella Swan (The Twilight Franchise)


Based on Stephenie Meyer’s novel of the same name, this Catherine Hardwicke directorial venture tracks the journey of Bella Swan, who stumbles upon an enigmatic chap when she moves to live with her father.


Portrayed by Kristen Stewart, she is a popular INFP who is drawn to fantasy. Before she chanced upon Edward Cullen, she loved reading about places of otherworldly nature. The fact that INFPs are loving towards people who are deemed to be outcasts by society reverberates in this film through Bella.


This becomes apparent when she allows a family of vampires to become an integral part of her life. Even though Bella is bold and does what she pleases, she can also get vulnerable at times.


Be that as it may, she is unafraid to take steps that may lead her to experience wild and unpredictable adventures.



46. Jasmine (Aladdin)


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 she makes it clear that she wants to marry someone that she loves and not the person that her father chose her to take the plunge with.


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.



47. Sam Baldwin (Sleepless in Seattle)


Sam Baldwin (Sleepless in Seattle)


Sam Baldwin is a widower with a young son who embodies quite a few qualities of the INFP personality type. ’Sleepless in Seattle’ showcases Sam’s son dialing a radio station to convey his father’s loneliness after his mother’s tragic death.


A heartbreakingly original character, he senses the need to express his feelings to someone. But, he has close to nobody but his young son. As a result, when he gets the chance to talk about his emotions, he simply goes ahead and does it.


As the story advances, we feel that Baldwin is also a hopeless romantic at heart who’s still in love with someone who he has lost. In addition, he is deeply dedicated to his son, who is, “apparently”, the only family he’s got.



48. Alice (Alice in Wonderland)


Alice (Alice in Wonderland)


Alice from the cult fiction film ‘Alice in Wonderland’ is one character that a lot many INFPs would be expecting to find in our piece today. Even though she belongs to an affluent family, she is surprisingly logical for her age and at ease with her distinct personality.


She tends to get curious from time to time and allows her experiences to give her a better understanding of people and the world. Since Alice is well aware of her status, she maintains her nobility without coming across as rambunctious or selfish.


As a matter of fact, she has a soft corner for those who are underprivileged.



49. Luna Lovegood (The Harry Potter Franchise)


Luna Lovegood (The Harry Potter Franchise)


Luna is the quintessential INFP. She is thoughtful, idealistic, and shy; therefore, embodying the three main traits of an INFP. No matter what the situation, we catch her trying to look for the good in others; a trait aspect that most of us have let go of in the real-world 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 different, does not mean that she can be taken for granted.


However, like most INFPs, she is both protective and serious about the people that she loves, irrespective of her closed-off persona.



50. Elsa (Frozen)


Elsa (Frozen)


The ‘Frozen’ film franchise gives us Elsa, who embodies traits of an INFP. The girl has a unique interest: she prefers to be alone. However, this tendency 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, she 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 character, she comes across as balanced and reliable.


That said, like some INFPs, she can tend 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.
