The Nesters

INFP - "martyr" - In this mood, the INFP tends to sacrifice herself in an effort to promote her particular sense of truth.
INPF - Don Quixote of La Mancha - Like a more refined version of the "martyr," an INFP in this mood tends to turn his very identity into a metaphor for the truth he promotes.
IFNP - "transcendentalist" - This isolation-prone mood tends to idealize simplicity and a-rationality.
IFPN - "sentimentalist" - A combination of strong sensory and feeling preference makes this mood prone to collecting various objects to symbolize emotional states and periods in time.
IPFN - Bilbo Baggins (“master of baths”) - The combination of a highly fluid identity and relative sensory preference in this mood means the INFP likes an inordinate quantity of alone time.
IPNF - "monk" - Stasis and detachment tend to mark this mood. Often mistaken for an INTP.

The Manipulators

NIPF - "Jedi master" ("Sith lord") - An INFP in this mood may create concord or discord without appearing involved. Its motives remain inscrutable. Of the INFPs mistaken for INTPs, this is the most dangerous from an INTP perspective.
NIFP - "crusader" - Much like the "Jedi master", but with a strong sense of right and wrong, this mood excels at intuiting the motives of others.
NFIP - "evangelist" - An INFP in this mood is like a more extraverted "crusader," and uses this power to make large groups of people feel good or bad.
NFPI - "performance artist" (Lady Gaga) - This mood generally manifests as an "evangelist" turned up to 11 on a scale of 1 to 10, and may make others uncomfortable.
NPFI - "flower power" ("Zen seminar disruptor") - They want to mediate, but tend to rely on the single answer: "We're all one, man!"
NPIF - Noah ("zookeeper") - Likely to notice and include those left out by others, an INFP in this mood collects personalities into elaborate menageries of potential. Everyone has a place in the grand scheme of life.

The Daydreamers

PINF - “philosopher” ("false INTP") - Those of this especially calm and absentminded mood may mistakenly claim the type that fits their feelings about themselves the best, the INTP.
PIFN - "angry aesthete" (“lover of beauty”) - Tying their identity to art, an INFP in this mood is angry about the very existence of art of low quality. Unfortunately, they're usually right.
PFIN - Elliot Smith (“lyricist”) - This poetic mood combines skill with words and patterns to express feelings in writing or song that would be more difficult or uncomfortable to say in a plainer fashion.
PFNI - Stevie Nicks (“collaborator”) - More extraverted than a "lyricist", an INFP in this mood will usually rely on help from others to promote their agenda, whatever that may be. Lucky for us, it's usually artistic.
PNFI - Totoro - An INFP in this mood knows that the possibility for dreamy cuddles is endless. Just don't piss it off.
PNIF - Bukowski - I told you not to piss Totoro off. An INFP in this mood is more comfortable with combining seemingly incompatible things (at least in the eyes of others) and less averse to conflict than usual for the INFP type.

The Nurturers

FINP - "moralist" (“counselor”) - The SJ of the INFP universe, an INFP in this mood carries a very robust moral code and is not shy about expressing it.
FIPN - "veterinarian" (“caretaker”) - Healers in every sense of the word, these are like the "moralist", but they tend to focus on the physical body of the "patient" first.
FNIP - Samwise Gamgee (Snuggie) - An INFP in this mood is always trying to find simple solutions to the emotional turmoil in people's lives. Once they find such solutions, they try to apply them wherever possible.
FNPI - "cuddle puddle" (“champion”) - This nurturer tends to use its very personality as an emotional ointment for the troubles of their subject.
FPIN - "fur suit" (“cosplayer”) - An INFP in this mood is preoccupied with the possibilities for refined emotions. This can lead it to a variety of novel solutions for self- and group-expression.
FPNI - Care Bear - A less refined version of the "fur suit," an INFP in this mood tries to craft novel emotional solutions for each separate relationship.
