Hello, my fellow Fe users! I had a realization about Fe that makes so much sense, it felt visceral when I thought about it. When making new relationships with others, I tend to “go with the flow” when something arises because I genuinely don’t mind making an exception for someone when it allows me toContinue reading “Extroverted Feeling”
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 “
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) “
21 hasn’t been quite that innovative. The creative energy that was expanding everyone’s minds in 2020 has been put into all the projects it needed to be put into. As a result, I feel the stagnant energy and boredom shining through.
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.
Boundaries come from a place of deep love. Yes, they come from self-care, but they actually come from deep love of the other person/people as well. When we set boundaries, it is a realistic expectation, and it comes from a realistic state of being.
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.
The most confusion in the Myers Briggs typing indicator, is typically the second letter of the four-letter types, N or S; intuition or sensing. A lot of times people use both, and are unsure which they use more of, and more often than not, I have found that this letter preference is hardest for opposite types to be accepting of, and accommodating of.
The topic of impatience has come up a lot for me lately, and not to mention, it was a recent topic in Lauren Sapala’s most recent class called The Joyful Writer. I never thought of myself as an impatient person, in fact, I had been complimented on my extreme patience and low maintenance in the past. But I recently realized that while I have patience for other people, I do not have patience with myself. In fact, I was so caught up in being impatient with myself and feeling like I was running out of time all the time, that was what was causing issues in my closest relationships.
I took a class on the opposite J and P preferences this past weekend, which is the 4th letter that makes up a Myers-Briggs 4 letter type. I’ve always known the main differences between the two, but it was fascinating hearing it articulated, and also hearing from sets of people in relationships, and how eachContinue reading “J or P – The 4th Letter in the Myers-Briggs Personality Type”
