If you are only interested in files of a specific type use the "-type" option.

find / -type d -print (to list only directories)
find / -type l -print (to list only soft links)
find / -type b -print (to list only bliock special files)
find / -type f -print (to list only regular files)
etc
etc
# 5  
Or the opposite

find / ! -type d -print (to list everything except directories)
