Does any personality type have more heart and soul than an INFP? Probably not. INFPs, who make up about 4-5 percent of the population, are unique, creative individuals known for having a rich inner world, an incredible depth of emotion and compassion, and a strange love affair with… clutter?
#INFPProblems is a quirky hashtag on Twitter that describes the daily struggles of people with this personality type, which range from the achingly melancholy to the humorously self-deprecating.
