Rachel Nycole is a Makeup Artist and Cosplayer from Vancouver BC, Canada. Rachel is 22, a Capricorn and has an INFP Personality which shines through in her cosplay.
INFP (introversion, intuition, feeling, perception) is one of sixteen personality types based on the work of the psychiatrist Carl G. Jung in his book Psychological Types.

INFPs are driven by a strong sense of right and wrong and a desire to exercise their creativity, even if only behind the scenes. One of the four types belonging to the temperament called the Idealists, INFPs are rare, accounting for about 4% of the population.
While they may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, INFPs have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine and this is certainly true with Rachel Nycole’s cosplay that has a quiet fierceness.
Comprising just 4% of the population, the risk of feeling misunderstood is unfortunately high for the INFP personality type – but when they find like-minded people to spend their time with, the harmony they feel will be a fountain of joy and inspiration.
INFPs are guided by their principles, rather than by logic (Analysts), excitement (Explorers), or practicality (Sentinels). When deciding how to move forward, they will look to honor, beauty, morality and virtue.
INFPs are led by the purity of their intent, not rewards and punishments. People who share the INFP personality type are proud of this quality, and rightly so, but not everyone understands the drive behind these feelings, and it can lead to isolation.
“All that is gold does not glitter; not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither; deep roots are not reached by the frost.” – J.R.R. Tolkien
At their best, these qualities enable INFPs to communicate deeply with others, easily speaking in metaphors and parables, and understanding and creating symbols to share their ideas.
The strength of this intuitive communication style lends itself well to creative works, and it comes as no surprise that many famous INFPs are poets, writers and actors (and cosplayers).
Understanding themselves and their place in the world is important to INFPs, and they explore these ideas by projecting themselves into their work.

“INFPs have a talent for self-expression, revealing their beauty and their secrets through metaphors and fictional characters.”
If they are not careful, INFPs can lose themselves in their quest for good and neglect the day-to-day upkeep that life demands.
INFPs often drift into deep thought, enjoying contemplating the hypothetical and the philosophical more than any other personality type.
Left unchecked, INFPs may start to lose touch, withdrawing into “hermit mode”, and it can take a great deal of energy from their friends or partner to bring them back to the real world.
Luckily, like the flowers in spring, INFP’s affection, creativity, altruism and idealism will always come back, rewarding them and those they love perhaps not with logic and utility, but with a world view that inspires compassion, kindness and beauty wherever they go.

While we don’t really know if this fully describes Rachel Nycole, it certainly is a good personality type for a cosplayer and makes sense to us as we admire her quiet confidence and beauty that shines through her cosplay.
