INFP / Cancer
Who is a Mediator (INFP)?
Meditators are individuals with the Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling and Perceiving personality traits. They tend to be creative, empathetic and individualistic people with a desire to create their own unique path in life. Highly thoughtful and considerate, meditators are known to be good listeners with an ability to make people in their surroundings feel at ease.
Mediatori/Cancer need to be needed. In all aspects of their lives, they have an overwhelming desire to feel loved and appreciated in order to develop a sense of security and identity. Their sense of home is incredibly important to their feeling of safety. They find it hard to achieve anything unless they feel safe and comfortable in their home lives. As such, they tend to be great at creating home environments for those that they love - both emotionally and physically. You’ll often find their to be welcoming, cozy and secure. They are incredibly sensitive, meaning they can have developed some very thick armor to help them deal with the changes in the world. Mediator/Cancer can be quite deep and mysterious, their outer appearances hiding the depth of their feelings. They don’t like revealing too much of themselves, and are rather indirect in the way that they communicate. Normally protective and courageous, these people can however become very brooding and moody if they feel that their emotional needs are not being met. Because of their rather clingy natures they tend to be sensitive to the needs of others.
In life people who fall under the Mediator/Cancer personality combo can be quite successful with their ability to understand intuitively what others desire or seek. They are highly intuitive about people. They rely heavily on their intuitions to guide them, and use their discoveries to constantly search for value in life. They are on a continuous mission to find the truth and meaning underlying things. Every encounter and every piece of knowledge gained gets sifted through their value system, and is evaluated to see if it has any potential to help them define or refine their own path in life. The goal at the end of the path is always the same - they’re driven to help people and make the world a better place. Generally thoughtful and considerate, they are good listeners and put people at ease. Although they may be reserved in expressing emotion, they have a very deep well of caring and are genuinely interested in understanding people. This sincerity is sensed by others, making them valued friends and confidantes.
They may appear shy and reserved, but underneath this shield is a romantic who suffers from a bad case of the nerves. They don’t fall in love with a person, but with an ideal. They fall in love with what they’re hoping to find. They are looking for a complete and unconditional acceptance because they feel so inadequate and unfinished. They are in love with the idea of being in love. This is why they often find themselves incapable of falling in love with the people who actually love them back. They want to be loved, but they don’t trust that it will last. They want to be touched, but don’t trust the intentions of the person touching them. They want to be protected, but they don’t trust that anyone will protect them. Once they fall in love with an actual person, they will carry the romantic feelings for their entire life. Their entire body becomes a vessel for the emotion.
These people take a laid-back approach to life, having little care or opinion about most things, being very much concerned only about things they are deeply passionate about. They do not like to keep schedules and calendars, only doing it because they deem it necessary. Despite the nonchalant front, they do have ideals but will only express it only to those close to them. They believe that the work they do contributes to their vision, and then they can become very motivated and focused in its pursuit, often demanding excellence and perfection from themselves. They’re are naturally inspiring leaders because of their ideals. When they share their ideals for the future, they often inspire others even without trying to. They are deeply sensitive to flaws in a system, particularly flaws that infringe on a human’s rights and values, and can come up with innovative solutions to solve these problems.
