INFP males are an emotional contradiction. In society’s views, the traits of any INFP are generally identified or stereotyped as traits associated with women. Sensitive, caring, empathetic, etc.

In males, especially young males this is often seen as a sign of weakness. INFPs make up between 2% to 5% of the population. It is considered one of the rarest personality types, though not the rarest.

They are an ocean of emotion, but you’ll never know it. INFP males, even more so than INFP females, have a hard outer shell that is almost impossible to penetrate. They have been bullied and told to man up from such a young age, and that is exactly what they do. They build a wall, but they still feel every bit of that intense emotion. They have learned to hide it, and they have become quite proficient at it. This oddly also manifests itself as good hygiene and grooming habits. They take care of themselves, and are rarely found not presentable. They blend well.

INFP males are chameleons. It doesn’t take them long to get a feel for a person. INFP males could be anyone, and are incredibly hard to spot. They can seem boisterously extroverted or quietly introverted. What is truly remarkable is how fast they can transition from one to the next. They could have a separate mask for each person or group they encounter. Very few people ever get past this outer shell as they use it almost all of the time. However, using that shell is extremely exhausting. INFPs often need plenty of time by themselves to regain their energy.

They are hopeless romantics. It is difficult to find out who INFP males truly are. They have so many layers and defenses that it is nearly impossible to navigate. But there is a reason for that. INFP males are some of the most selfless, supportive, and loving partners. INFP males are usually terrific lovers, and very attentive to their partners. They are unquestionably loyal, and they will do anything for you. They put blind faith in you and love unconditionally.

This is why INFP males are so guarded. They have loved. And they have been betrayed. And they have hurt. This is the downside of having a very high EQ. They feel that pain keener and longer than almost any other type. They internalize it all, and they blame themselves when it fails. And when it does fail, they can easily fall into a depressive and destructive path. Their default is to treat everyone the same. They see the best in people and they want to trust you, because life is just better that way.

Many other types call this naive, but for INFPs, it is a conscious choice. In reality, INFPs are about as close to a lie detector as a person is going to get. They may not know the truth, but they definitely know the lie. Most of the time they are just too polite to call you on it. For INFPs, this can be a double-edged sword.

They have one hell of a blind spot, the inner circle of people they trust. INFPs let them inside their shell where they are vulnerable. And because of that, even a small lie will feel like a massive betrayal. INFP males will forgive nearly anything as long as you own up to it and do not lie to them.

INFPs constantly have a battle going on in their heads. Their curse is being able to see objectively. They see all sides of an issue, which means they can relate to all the sides. This makes them great mediators, but can also make them indecisive. They can take any issue and break it down to its fundamental level, then break that into a core value, which is always a big issue for them. They are always willing to incorporate unknown facts or dissenting opinions in their decision-making process. This includes critiques. Just don’t be too harsh with them, for two reasons. They can tell if you truly want to help them or just want to look down on them. And they may not show it, but they will take your words to heart. If you’re too harsh, it’ll hurt them unnecessarily.

They have rich inner worlds with beautiful art, characters, you name it, and they hide it all. But there are chinks in their armor. If you find something they are truly passionate about and convince them you are truly interested in it, then you had better find a seat. INFPs are about to embark on hours-long conversation or activity. You will catch a glimpse of the energy, intensity, and passion that is who they truly are.

They are compassionate. INFPs are naturally very compassionate individuals, constantly trying to understand others. They become sad when they see pain in the world around them. INFPs dislike seeing any person hurting, and especially hate injustices. When people are cruel, they become personally hurt by this. INFPs are naturally warm and sensitive people who care about the world around them. They are not cold or distant, and will often appear much more caring than other people. They are very open people who cannot seem to avoid caring for others. If they see someone in pain, INFPs will often come to their aid as quickly as they can. They are warm individuals who are extremely connected to those around them. The hallucinate desire to help and care for others emotionally can sometimes be difficult for INFPs. This is especially challenging for INFP males since they go against some of the typical stereotypes of men. They will often become very upset with bullying and might even step in to defend someone. INFPs often walk their path and dislike being shoved into a box. This can often cause them trouble, especially at a younger age. Being an INFP male means connecting with others, and being compassionate even when people judge them for it. This can sometimes cause the INFP male to feel emasculated, causing other people to see them as a doormat. They certainly are not pushovers; they simply are caring and compassionate individuals. Their sensitivity to others is not weakness but rather a strength. They have a natural ability to connect with others and a deep sense of emotional understanding.

They are in touch with their emotions. INFPs are extremely aware of their emotions because they spend plenty of time trying to understand what they are feeling. The fact that they are such sensitive souls makes them more aware of their own emotions. When they speak about how they feel, they are often very certain of themselves. Many people do not understand this, and it can cause others to look down on INFPs. This can be especially difficult for INFP males since they do not fit into the stereotypical idea of the emotional stunted male. They understand their emotions and are completely sensitive to the emotions of others. The INFP may struggle to convince others of their feelings and may not receive the respect that they deserve. They will often become frustrated when people doubt their emotions and might have outbursts from time to time. They simply want people to trust that they understand their emotions and dislike when others attempt to challenge this fact.

They feel things very deeply. INFPs feel things very deeply, which can be a rather challenging trait for them. It is what makes them so wonderful, but it is also difficult for them at times. INFPs cannot hide from their emotions and are often impacted by the bad things that happen in their world around them. An INFP can often see something on television or hear about something bad happening, and this will cause them to feel upset for a long time after. They are not simply caught up in their own world and will often be bothered by the sadness of others. This is a constant struggle for them, but it is also what makes them such warm and incredible individuals. They often struggle to find their place in the world and will struggle to feel understood. This depth of emotions makes the INFP male extremely rare and often misunderstood. They will struggle to feel masculine since they are not aggressive or insincere people. They strive to be honest and simply want people to accept them for who they are.

They dislike conflict. INFPs often dislike conflict and will avoid getting into arguments with people. They dislike when people become overly aggressive and simply prefer to keep the peace. They will always stand up for their beliefs and will not back down when they think it is important. In most cases, though, INFPs would prefer to get along with others. They are not overly angry people, even though they can sometimes be stubborn. This can sometimes be a struggle for INFP males, especially since the stereotype of men is to be aggressive and forward. INFPs would prefer to give people space and often won’t push people to get what they want. Instead of forcefully taking what they want, INFPs prefer to find a more peaceful way to accomplish things. If they have to step on others to get somewhere, they would prefer to hold themselves back. INFPs sincerely want to find their place in the world, but they don’t believe that they have to hurt others to do this. Their way of thinking and of connecting to the world around them is what makes INFPs such unique and incredible people. They are certainly a rare breed, especially the open and sensitive INFP male. Their ability to connect with their emotions is often what makes INFPs amazing artists and musicians. This talent for self-expression is truly something to be admired and not judged. It can be challenging to be different, but the INFP male who learns to accept themselves for who they are is definitely a force to be reckoned with.
