How to Mitigate Stress for Each Type Based on the Inferior Functions 

There are a lot of MBTI articles out there about stress and the inferior functions. They say that living in your inferior function for too long can cause stress, and then you will be in what’s known as “grip stress”. I’d like to take it a step farther, and discuss my theory that if we play with our inferior function a bit, we can help it to mature.

What Causes Pain for Each Cognitive Function 

Each Myers-Briggs type has a dominant cognitive function that they use to process information that they take in from their external environment. Anytime they interact with someone else or the environment, they receive information and process it through their first cognitive function. They typically also use this function to make the majority of their decisions,Continue reading “What Causes Pain for Each Cognitive Function “

The Inferior Functions and Why We Should Develop Them (What Each Type Might Regret Not Paying Attention to When Making A Decision) 

Each MBTI type has an inferior function, which is the fourth function in the set of cognitive functions. For most people, the fourth function tends to become developed later in life, once all the others have been developed. When each type experiences grip stress, they tend to live in their fourth, inferior function in anContinue reading “The Inferior Functions and Why We Should Develop Them (What Each Type Might Regret Not Paying Attention to When Making A Decision) “

We Are All Human, and We All Have “Stuff”

I’ve been reminded again and again over the last few days how easy it is to disassociate from people we don’t know. It’s easy to think that people we don’t know don’t have any issues or pain, and on an even farther scale, that they are actually somehow evil or bad. The thing is, we are all human. We all go through this thing called life, and not a single person has it easy. We are all here to learn and grow and figure out what the meaning is for each of us. No one has the right to determine that for anyone else. 

INFX Types and How the Remote Work Possibility Changed Everything

commonly known as being quiet, sensitive and kind. When the COVID ‘19 pandemic hit back in early 2020 in the Unites States, many INFX types were forced to work completely remotely, possibly for the first time, and possibly permanently, because many companies realized they could save money on office space by having remote employees. 

Living in the Past or Future

I’ve been doing A Course in Miracles, and started in on lesson eight today. Most of these concepts are ones I already apply to most of my thoughts and everyday life, but they are great reminders to pay attention to that pesky narrative that your thinking mind tries to impose on you. Today’s lesson isContinue reading “Living in the Past or Future”

Introversion versus Shyness

In our society, the word “shy” seems to be the go-to word for anyone who seems quiet. People notice those who don’t speak much, and instantly label them shy. However, there is a big difference in the meaning of shy and introversion. Additionally, social anxiety tends to go along with shyness, not necessarily introversion. 

The Midnight Library

life. For a quick summary, the story centers around Nora, a woman in her 30’s who feels dejected by most of the people in her life, and feels woefully inadequate and isn’t sure if she has turned down several possible promising trajectories her life could have taken based on her particular hobbies and studies. At some point, she finds herself in the Midnight Library, which allows her to see what would have happened in life if she had followed those other paths, and even some more mundane choices she could have made. I believe that the book’s goal is to point out to us that we can question “what if I had done it this way?” for the rest of our lives, but if we aren’t content to live in the present moment, and create and nurture our most important relationships, life isn’t worth living.
