Tom Hansen – 500 Days of Summer

The film revolves around Tom’s devastating breakup with his longtime partner Summer (Zoey Deschanel) and his efforts to heal as one of the main characters in 500 Days of Summer. When he’s in a relationship, he comes off as clingy and accustomed to the same everyday routine.

In the movie, Tom shows several of the most unfavourable INFP traits, such as taking things too personally and struggling to adjust, as well as his prolonged grieving process. He also exhibits some positive INFP characteristics, such as ingenuity and a long term commitment to harmony.

Tom Hansen Quotes

“What happens if you fall in love?”

“People don’t realize this, but loneliness is underrated.” 

“I love how she makes me feel, like anything’s possible, or like life is worth it.”

“People buy cards ’cause they can’t say how they feel, or they’re afraid to. We provide the service that lets them off the hook.”

“People should be able to say how they feel – how they really feel – not, you know, some words that some strangers put in their mouths.”

Jamie Sullivan – A Walk to Remember

Jamie Sullivan, one of the main characters in A Walk To Remember, was brilliantly portrayed by Mandy Moore. Jamie didn’t have many friends in school, and she dressed modestly and lived in solitude because of her father who was a pastor.

She possessed many INFP characteristics. 

To begin with, she was shy, unconcerned about what others thought about her, and she only felt comfortable around Shane after spending a substantial amount of time with him. Secondly, even on her deathbed, she showed unshakable faith.

Quotes from Jamie Sullivan

“I’m scared of not being with you.”

“Please don’t pretend like you know me, ok?”

“Maybe God has a bigger plan for me than I had for myself. Like this journey never ends. Like you were sent to me because I’m sick. To help me through all this. You’re my angel. “

“This is a star frame and it will help you locate stars and planets with your naked eye. Mercury and Jupiter can be seen just over the west south west of the horizon after sunset. “

Hermione Granger – The Harry Potter Series

Hermione demonstrates many INFP attributes, including the preference to have a small circle of buddies, social awkwardness, and broad-mindedness.

Hermione was a vital member of the popular trio in the Harry Potter series and was regarded as the “sharpest witch of the class.” Her smarty-pants attitude and lack of social skills made her seem arrogant and irritating at first, but as she became more relaxed, she evolved into a caring and supportive mate.

Hermione Granger Quotes

“Look at you playing with your cards. Pathetic! We’ve got final exams coming up soon.”

“Now if you two don’t mind, I’m going to bed before either of you come up with another clever idea to get us killed – or worse, expelled.”

Sam – Sleepless in Seattle

Sam (Tom Hanks) is a widower with a young son, and the film Sleepless in Seattle opens with his son calling into a radio station to express his father’s loneliness after his mother’s sad demise. Sam himself ends up talking to the radio host and passionately explains his relationship with his deceased wife and how much he misses her.

Many women including Annie (Meg Ryan), listen to the radio broadcast, and want to reach out to him in hopes of dating him.

Quotes from Sam

“I am NOT going to New York to meet some woman who could be a crazy, sick lunatic! Didn’t you see Fatal Attraction?”

“Well, I’m not looking for a mail-order bride. I just want somebody I can have a decent conversation with over dinner, without it falling down into weepy tears over some movie.”

“Well, I’m gonna get out of bed every morning… breathe in and out all day long. Then, after a while I won’t have to remind myself to get out of bed every morning and breathe in and out… and, then after a while, I won’t have to think about how I had it great and perfect for a while.”

Amélie – Amélie

Amélie is a peculiar character noted for her reserved demeanour and selflessness. She is passionate about making other people’s lives better, and she will even place other people’s interests above her own. 

Since the majority of folks with the INFP personality type are empathetic, they are always too preoccupied with helping others to care to look after their own needs.

Quotes from Amélie

“I like to look for things no one else catches.”

“At least you’ll never be a vegetable – even artichokes have hearts.”

Charlie – Perks of Being a Wallflower

Charlie is a wallflower, which suggests that behind his shyness and withdrawn demeanour, he is able to observe and see details that others miss out on. INFPs excel at noticing stuff that normal people overlook.

Charlie is the epitome of an INFP personality. He is highly emotional, and since he is so in tune with his feelings, he can weep at the smallest of things. His character, for example, will often cry over a song that moves his heart.

Quotes from Charlie

“Why do nice people choose the wrong people to date?”

“We accept the love we think we deserve.”

“There is so much pain. And I-I-I don’t know how to not notice it. “

“Sam, do you think if people knew how crazy you really were, no one would ever talk to you?”

“Thank you, sir, but if my English teacher is the only friend I make today, that would be sorta depressing.”

“I don’t know if I will have the time to write any more letters because I might be too busy trying to participate. So if this does end up being the last letter, I just want you to know that I was in a bad place before I started high school, and you helped me. Even if you didn’t know what I was talking about or know someone who’s gone through it, you made me not feel alone.”

Celine – Before Sunrise

Celine is an embodiment of the INFP personality in Before Sunrise. Her character is an excellent listener who tends to talk about ideas instead of making small talk. Nothing disgusts an INFP as much as small talk. They try to get to the other person’s heart and soul, and they’re not scared to go to a depth with someone that most people are afraid to.

Quotes from Celine

“Isn’t everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more?”

“If there’s any kind of magic in this world… it must be in the attempt of understanding someone, sharing something. I know it’s almost impossible to succeed… but who cares, really? The answer must be in the attempt.”

“When you talked earlier about after a few years how a couple would begin to hate each other by anticipating their reactions or getting tired of their mannerisms-I think it would be the opposite for me. I think I can really fall in love when I know everything about someone-the way he’s going to part his hair, which shirt he’s going to wear that day, knowing the exact story he’d tell in a given situation. I’m sure that’s when I know I’m really in love.
