Fictional characters with the INFP personality type

Today we look at 21 fictional INFP characters. INFPs are unique personality types who live in their heads and are often found daydreaming. And, as you can see from this list of fictional INFP characters, this apparently means that they don’t tend to look at the camera often as they are so in their own world.

INFPs are incredibly principled individuals. They have a strong in-built sense of what is right and wrong and they stick to their values.

From Luke Skywalker, who is always stays true to his values and resisted the dark side, to Frodo Baggins, who journeyed through Middle Earth to destroy the ring, INFPs have an undeniably strong sense of right and wrong.

Luke Skywalker (Star Wars)

Luke Skywalker is an INFP. He is laidback and conflict-averse until his values are challenged. He makes decisions based on what he feels is right or wrong, and he always stays true to his values. This ultimately prevents Luke Skywalker from being tempted by the Dark Side.

Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter)

As far as fictional INFP characters go, Luna Lovegood is a great example of an INFP. She has the most vivid imagination of all of the Harry Potter characters. She lives in her head a lot rather than in the real world. Luna also has a kind heart and sees the best in people.

Frodo Baggins (Lord of the Rings)

Frodo Baggins is an INFP. He was self-sacrificing and cared deeply about destroying the one ring. This took a lot of willpower that many other Lord of the Rings characters did not have.

Arwen (Lord of the Rings)

Arwen is an INFP. She is idealistic and clings on to the hope of eventually being with Aragorn. In doing so, she broke ancient Elvish traditions and left her family to follow her heart and give up her immortality.

Arthur Fleck, AKA Joker (Joker)

Arthur Fleck, “Joker”, is an INFP, just like Joaquin Phoenix who plays him in the movie. Joker is misunderstood and feels deep empathy for underdogs as he draws from his own experiences. This INFP Joker differs wildly to the traditional Joker from Batman, an ENTP.

Amélie Poulain (Amélie)

Amélie is an INFP fictional character. She lives in a fantasy world inside her head, so much so that she can sometimes struggle to communicate with people. She is selfless and empathetic, often putting other people’s needs ahead of her own.

Peter Parker, AKA Spiderman (Spiderman)

There are a few versions of the Spiderman characters. However, the traditional Spiderman and the Spiderman played by Tobey Maguire is an INFP. He makes his decisions based on feeling and can be clumsy at times.

Aurora (Sleeping Beauty)

Aurora is another INFP Disney character. She is an idealistic free spirit who is unaware of her physical surroundings. She has deep emotions and a kind heart. Aurora also sleeps a lot, which is typical of INFPs.

Edward Scissorhands (Edward Scissorhands)

Edward Scissorhands is an INFP, just like Johnny Depp who plays him in the movie. Edward is an incredibly unique individual who is deeply emotional. He often feels isolated and alone as people are scared of him, but he is actually just shy, gentle and kind.

Number Seven, AKA Vanya Hargreeves (The Umbrella Academy)

Vanya Hargreeves is an INFP. She had a personal identity crisis and also didn’t know her place within her family. Vanya makes decisions based on future outcomes and doesn’t conform to social norms.

Elio Perlman (Call Me By Your Name)

Elio from Call Me By Your Name is an INFP. Elio enjoys reading and spending time in his head. He is also a highly sensitive person who wears his heart on his sleeve and makes decisions based on emotions over logic.

Cassie (Skins)

Cassie is an INFP. She has a strong moral code that she follows, even while everyone was partying all the time around her. Cassie grew as a character throughout the series and she always wanted to find a deep connection with someone.

Charlie Kelmeckis (The Perks of Being a Wallflower)

Charlie Kelmeckis is an INFP. He is slightly awkward and enjoys indulging in a world of fictional books. He is also not afraid to show his emotions ands tends to cry quite a lot. INFPs are one of the most emotional out of 16 personality types.

Belle (Beauty & the Beast)

Belle is the ultimate Disney INFP. She enjoys reading and daydreaming about other places far away from reality. She does not feel like she fits in in her ‘provincial town’ and, being unconventional, she is looking for adventures outside of social norms.

Mike Ross (Suits)

Mike Ross is an INFP. He is easy going until his values and principles are challenged. Then, he fights tooth and nail for what he believes in and thinks of creative new ways to solve problems.

Elena Gilbert (The Vampire Diaries)

Elena Gilbert is an INFP fictional character. She feels deep empathy for her loved ones and is always putting other people’s needs ahead of her own. She is also open-minded and sees the best in people, even when they continually do wrong.

Will Byers (Stranger Things)

Will Byers is an INFP, like his brother Jonathan Byers. Will has a wild imagination and an open-mind which ultimately helps him in the Upside Down. He is a sensitive character who can sometimes feel misunderstood in his small friendship group.

Peyton Sawyer (One Tree Hill)

Peyton Sawyer is an INFP. She feels emotions very deeply. Peyton never feels like she has to conform to social norms, she’s not a typical cheerleader, and she’s very happy doing her own thing.

Newt Scamander (Fantastic Beasts)

Newt Scamander is an INFP. He is a creative idealist who cares deeply about animals, probably even more so than humans. Newt enjoys adventures and travels all over the world learning new things about magical creatures and how to protect them.

Willow Rossenberg (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

Willow Rosenberg is an INFP fictional character. She has a mysterious aura and is creative when it comes to thinking outside of the box and discovering new spells. Willow has a small group of friends but cares for them deeply.

Bran Stark (Game of Thrones)

Bran Stark is an INFP. He is very much detatched from the real world. He is imaginative, gentle and holds strong opinions on what’s right or wrong. He was the perfect character to end up on the Throne.

Typing fictional characters is more abstract than analyzing the personality types of famous people. A real person’s personality type doesn’t change over time, however, traumas and experiences can impact how they develop different aspects of their personality.

Fictional characters, however, can change over seasons or with remakes based on the writer at the time. There are a few examples of this where the personality types of the fictional characters change throughout a TV series.

For example, in this list of fictional INFJ characters, Betty Cooper from Riverdale, was an ISFJ in season 1 and then an INFJ in seasons since. Another example is Willy Wonka, who was an ENTP in the original film but an ENFP in the Johnny Depp remake.
