    As an INFP, this book helped me a lot to understand my personality. It is a great and inspiring book. Well researched. Yet, somehow, in the middle of it all, it sounds like the author is treating INFPs as special snowflakes. I mean, yes, INFPs have flaws, too but most of the time (in the book) the author is being braggy about INFPs. I know she means no harm. She only wants to lift up the spirit and morale of the INFP people but still.

    I read this book just after finishing The Comprehensive INFP Survival Guide and I first believed that there was not much to add. But it gave me new perspectives of things. Both books are complete and complementary. Whereas Priebe's book is more objective and theoretical, giving exhaustive information and following a meticulous scheme, Chea's style is more accesible and personal, providing simple and straight-to-the-point patterns and clues.

Whereas Priebe's book is more objective and theoretical, giving exhaustive information and following a meticulous scheme, Chea's style is more accesible and personal, providing simple and straight-to-the-point patterns and clues. Maybe a little rough around the edges but useful and understandable nonetheless. I highlighted most of the book because I found most of the tips and advices really nailed it. I admit there were times when my mood became heavy and intense, when I honestly had to make an effort in order to apply a less idealistic and a more disheartening lenses on myself, watching and studying my inner core with a less romantic perspective and endure the discouraging criticism about myself. But everybody has its shadows. INFPs are no less. But hey, it's good to get to know these shadows in a more concrete way. Putting these these matters into words make me feel more understood by others and by my own being. Giving a label is not bad, it gives you something more tangible to fight, it gives you tools to change and face your own demons. I really recommend this book.

    Well-written and researched book about the Myers Briggs personality type INFP, with a mix of insightful information and personal anecdote. The tone of the book is conversational, and I like how the chapters were broken down into manageable sections, making it easy to read and understand. She also addresses the problems and concerns of the INFP, with some relatable personal examples to illustrate the point.

What I enjoyed especially was Catherine Chea's writing style, her engagement with the reader, and her efforts to help INFPs extend and grow. In reading The INFP Book, any INFP will find new information and details they haven't come across before, and also suggestions on how to learn and develop, using the strengths of an INFP and countering the weaknesses. This book is essentially about discovering who you are. Be inspired.

    I now love being an INFP! For me, this is the best explanation of what it means to be an INFP. This book details the stack functions in such an easy to understand way, and has helped me gain a greater understanding of myself. At least now I realize why I have such a strong creative urge and why not using it leaves me feeling frustrated and depleted. I urge all fellow INFPs to read this book.

    It's a good read for INFPs. Undoubtedly readers will walk away from this book with at least four underlined phrases that can help them steer through life. I felt understood, motivated and connected. I think now I'd like to read something that goes a bit deeper into the cognitive functions stacking for an INFP, but this was nice. Would recommend.

    I read this in one day. As an INFP that has been a self discovery path for two years now, Catherine brings a personal and vulnerable touch that allows you to relate to her immediately. As soon someone who neglects himself to put others first, this book was a big wake up call to me. You cannot serve others with love until you first look after yourself. I was also sorry to hear of the struggles you have had Catherine (if you read this) but it seems here that it has made you that much stronger. Thi I read this in one day.

This book really inspired me and I cannot wait to read the next book Catherine makes. Infp to Infp, thank you. Highly recommended if you are an INFP who wants a fresh, personal take on the personality type.

    Chea is very self-aware, and provides down to earth, real-life examples of the manifestations of her INFP personality, many of which were very relatable. There were quite a number of aha moments, as I saw myself reflected in her personal experiences, thoughts, motivations and behaviour. It was certainly reassuring to know I'm not the only person who thinks and feels in ways detailed in this book. There was a good focus on building self-esteem, because Chia is correct in thinking that INFPs often Chea is very self-aware, and provides down to earth, real-life examples of the manifestations of her INFP personality, many of which were very relatable.

There was a good focus on building self-esteem, because Chia is correct in thinking that INFPs often feel normal aspects of their personality are unacceptable, or even pathological. Overall a worthwhile read, although a little self-absorbed and tedious at parts. In particular, I would have liked to see Chea move beyond her own personal experiences, to include the experiences of other INFPs, which would've made for a broader, more comprehensive, informative and interesting read.

    Not quite what I thought it would be - but still had a lot of interesting information on the scientific makeup of an INFP personality. I am fascinated with anything and everything Myers-Briggs. Light read with some fun headings; just a little too much "personal discovery" on the author's part for my taste. Still fun to flip through!

    The personal tone of the writing makes this analysis of the Myers Briggs personality types accessible. Rather than learning about myself, this book acknowledged, confirmed, and validated my internal experiences and self-knowledge. With wonderful anecdotal descriptions and advice, this book offers valuable and supportive resource for the INFP individual to reframe their personality in relation to the non-INFP world.

    Vulnerable, Insightful Read. As an INFP, it's always interesting to read someone else's account of life as an INFP. I thought Catherine was very honest and vulnerable. It was really cool to read another INFP's perspective and a couple of things really stood out to me. Highly recommend! Vulnerable, Insightful Read.

    This book has helped give me a better understanding of what it means to be an INFP personality type and the challenges we face in finding a suitable career in line with our core values and how to overcome other hurdles we face in day to day life. It is also filled with wonderful quotes in which I can relate to from fellow INFPs who are famous; quotes from authors and actors.

    Catherine Chea nailed it! She knows the INFP so well. Even though I have a very strong preference for INFP and have trained as an administrator of the MBTI, I learned things and had much reaffirmed. The author knows what makes the INFP tick and has an engaging way of explaining it. This book is a must read for all INFPs and those who love them and live with them.

    Written by an INFP for INFPs, this book reads more like having a nice in-depth talk with an old friend and less like a technical manual (as some of the other books I considered purchased appeared to be written), which was a fantastic relief to me. If you're looking to gain some further insight into the world of being an INFP, I highly recommend this title.

    It was a nice read and rejuvenated my confidence. There's a question I would like to ask you Canadians. What makes you all so empathetic? Like really. My favourite self-improvement book alongside 12 Rules of Life by Dr. Jordan Peterson. It was a nice read and rejuvenated my confidence. There's a question I would like to ask you Canadians.

    A really comforting read but I gained nothing new. Given that I've read all the other INFP books out there, it's not really the book's fault. A really comforting read but I gained nothing new. Given that I've read all the other INFP books out there, it's not really the book's fault.

    As someone with an INFP personality type, I found 'The INFP Book' to be truly insightful. Catherine Chea has clearly amounted a plethora of research for this book, diving into plenty of detail and personal experiences to clearly explain who INFP's are, whilst discussing how they differ from alternative personality types. A short read, though I would recommend this book to anyone with an INFP personality type, as it can feel like an eye-opening experience.

    As an INFP, I like to read books about mbti theory. Usually I read these kind of books to... (1) procrastinate but not feel guilty because I'm reading a book (2) make myself feel like I'm introspecting as well as discovering new things about the world (3) know that I'm not alone even if I feel lonely sometimes (4) critize mbti theory because it's a pseudoscience while also praising it because it really captures my essence (5) realize that I really am a fucking walking paradox because who the hell cri As an INFP, I like to read books about mbti theory.

Anyway, if you're an INFP, read this book. I can't guarantee that it helps. But it's still cool.
