INFP vs. INFJ Characters

When it comes to movies both INFPs and INFJs are easy to spot because of course they’re the quirkiest weirdos you’ll ever come across in a movie. However, the difference between these two and what sets them apart is that INFPs are wallflowers to the extreme. On the other hand, INFJs despite being introverts end up being in the limelight somehow. Let’s explore a few characters of INFPs and INFJs from movies.

INFP

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. “

INFJ

Veronica Sawyer from ‘Heathers’

Veronica Sawyer, played by Winona Ryder, is the female lead of the cult classic film Heathers.

Veronica is a member of The Heathers, the most famous clique at her high school. Blue is her trademark colour, which represents her deep, introspective, and reflective nature which are all characteristics of the INFJ personality.

Veronica is introspective and indecisive throughout the movie, often writing her thoughts in her diary as she seeks to find out who she is. 

Veronica may come off as blunt or rude to others because of her maturity which is beyond her years (also an INFJ trait), but this is simply because the students at Westerberg are more concerned about their social position rather than their brains.

Quotes from Veronica Sawyer

“I say we just grow up, be adults and die.”

“If you were happy every day of your life you wouldn’t be a human being. You’d be a game-show host.”

“You inherit 5 million dollars the same day aliens land on the earth and say they’re going to blow it up in 2 days. What do you do?”

“My parents wanted to move me into high school out of the sixth grade, but we decided to chuck the idea because I’d have trouble making friends, blah, blah, blah. Now blah, blah, blah is all I ever do. I use my grand IQ to decide what color lip gloss to wear in the morning and how to hit three keggers before curfew…” 

INFP

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.”

INFJ

Lucilla from ‘Gladiator’

Lucilla, played by Connie Nielsen, is Emperor Marcus Aurelius’ beautiful daughter, and future Emperor Commodus’ sister. Lucilla had a romantic relationship with Maximus when they were both young and were not married yet. However, the relationship ended, and Maximus got married and also had a son. Lucilla also married, had a son, but became widowed. Lucilla and Maximus still have a tense relationship, particularly from her side.

Unlike her wicked scheming brother, Lucilla is a woman of character who believes that justice should be served.

Quotes from Lucilla

“Today I saw a slave become more powerful than the Emperor of Rome.”

“Please be quiet, brother! Your constant scheming gives me even more of a headache! “

“Is Rome worth one good man’s life? We believed it once. Make us believe it again. He was a soldier of Rome. Honor him.”

INFP

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.”

INFJ

Adaline Bowman from ‘The Age of Adaline’

Adaline Bowman is a young woman who was born at the turn of the twentieth century and has been rendered ageless as a result of an accident. Despite all she has been through, Adaline is a bright, mysterious, caring, compassionate, intelligent, and pleasant woman.

She meets a man after several years of solitude who complicates the everlasting life she has settled into. 

Quotes from Adaline Bowman

“I am too old for this.”

“Tell me something I can hold on to forever and never let go.”

“It’s not about vanity. I just don’t like people taking my photograph.”

“I don’t think I’ll ever understand why so few people care about history.”

INFP

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.

INFJ

Gorgo from ‘300’

Gorgo, Queen of Sparta, is a character in the film 300, played by Lena Headey. She was the wife of Leonidas. Gorgo is a strong woman who is confident and unapologetic. She is a proud Spartan who plans to keep her homeland safe and free from outside forces. She loves warfare in true Spartan spirit, but she can also feel sorrow when she has suffered a great loss.

Quotes from Gorgo

“Because only Spartan women give birth to real men!” 

“Freedom isn’t free at all, that it comes with the highest of costs. The cost of blood.“

“There’s only one woman’s words that should affect the mood of my husband. Those are mine. “
