"The deep INFP is a grateful type of person. They are grateful for the sun, the moon and the world around them. They see treasure in the forests and the waves, they see worth in the smallest of people and in the grandiose beings that inhabit this world. They are usually the type that is most grateful for the love and care of animals and the animal kingdom. You will often see INFPs behind charities or organizations that protect and shelter animals.
The connection most INFPs have with animals is a spiritual, emotional, metaphysical one. It is a grateful, humble connection.
Perhaps it is caused by the intense empathy almost all INFPs feel towards living things. The ability to “read” animals, the energy levels of other living things, is a gift that most are unaware of. INFPs are known to possess amazing ability to “communicate” on almost mystical levels with creatures of all sizes and understand them in a way that most other types will never comprehend.
This is why many INFPs will seek animal companionship, even from a young age.
Some INFP children can be seen at extremely young ages befriending stray animals. Also seen are INFP children that animals appear to “guard” or become protective of, caring for the INFP as their own young. The ability for animals to choose certain types over others is not usually explained.
INFPs can sometimes be quoted as feeling that animals understand them deeper than humans. They will also be heard saying that their animal companions are more “aware” of the INFP than most human beings. Animals tend to become drawn to INFPs and INFPs to animals. This relationship between INFP and animal companion can be viewed as a unique one even to the harshest of critics.”
