The INFP, a Meaning Seeker, is known as the Idealistic Philosopher.

If you are an Idealistic Philosopher...

Imagine a deep lush valley, caressed by flowers and trees that eternally blossom, inhabited by animals that serve as gentle companions and by people who spend their days loving, creating, and selflessly serving humanity. This is the world of the rare (only about 3% of the population) Idealistic Philosopher: the person who is forever striving to live in a perfect world where love and harmony abound.

When you are in love...

As an INFP, you believe that love requires a profound emotional and spiritual connection. You may also believe that, to attain this desired state, you will have to endure a great deal of pain and sacrifice. Yet all the suffering will be worth it once you find your perfect love. When that blessed day comes, you will be a complete person, as you and your partner will work together and make the world a better place.

In the beginning of a relationship, you tend to idealize your mate as the greatest person in the world; you'd easily give up your life for him or her. Later, when reality intrudes, you may find yourself disappointed as you realize that no real human being can match your fantastic images of love and romance you created in your imagination. Fortunately, despite your disillusionment, you somehow recover and begin to accept the flaws of your partner, ever so slowly, while still wishing you could change him or her into the perfect image you had when you first fell in love.

Your best match...

Research shows that a male Idealistic Philosopher is the Love Type most likely to marry his mirror image: the female Idealistic Philosopher. Moreover, research indicates the the Idealistic Philosophers (both male and female) tend to be happiest marrying their own Love Type. INFP's who marry each other report the fewest conflicts in communication, finances, child rearing, and chores than any other Love Type combination in which one partner is an INFP.

If you are a female Idealistic Philsopher...

You can be happy with your Idealistic Philosopher counterpart, and you can also do well with the Mystic Writer (INFJ), Growth Teacher (ENFJ), or Social Philosopher (ENFP). Because the Growth Teacher and Social Philosopher have Extraverted natures, either one can bring out your social side and help balance your natural inward focus.
