Namely, when we think about relationships, we typically think of feelings flowing reciprocally between partners.
One of the curious features of Fi with respect to relationships is its inward direction.
First, I think it is worth mentioning that many INFPs do just fine, much better than some other personality types, when not involved in a romantic relationship.
As long as they have a meaningful outlet for their Fi (and Ne) energies (e.g., children, pets, art, religion, etc.), romantic relationships may be of secondary importance to them.
As we’ve seen, INFPs love caring for those who cannot care for themselves, including children.
Since male INFPs may be less concerned about, or eager to, have children of their own, they may feel less rushed to settle into a permanent relationship.
INFPs may also seek a partner who can be their best friend, companion, and helper, someone they can talk to and enjoy life with.
Moreover, INFP females, in particular, may seek a partner with whom they can start a family.
Compatible Partners is not your average lesbian dating site.
At Compatible Partners, we are committed to helping lesbian singles find love every day.
With that said, it is also true that other INFPs see finding love as their highest priority.
They are your proverbial “romantics,” perhaps dreaming of finding “true love” or their eternal soulmate.
For Fi users, however, feelings are not readily communicated (at least not directly) to one’s partner because their feeling function is introverted.
