The Dreamy Idealist personality type is suited to a career in the arts, such as a writer or musician, or in careers that help people become better, such as teaching, psychology, social work or the clergy. The Dreamy Idealist is also known as the INFP Jungian personality type.

A person who tests as an INFP (introversion, intuition, feeling, perception) tends to be introverted, sensitive, creative and interested in people. He avoids conflict and seeks to make peace. He seeks purpose in his life and is unhappy in a job that does not conform to his personal value system. The Dreamy Idealist does not work well on a large team, preferring solitary work or working within very small groups that share his vision.
