A common pairing for INFJ is ENFP. The similarities between the two types are the “NF” middle two letters, also called the mental function in MBTI. A lot of people see the middle two letters as very important to have in common, because typically people with the same mental functions will have a similar objective in life, and view of the world. For instance, NF’s tend to look for a deeper meaning and connection with people and everything endeavor in life.
Does loud music overwhelm you? Do you get stressed by loud noises or a lot of external stimuli? Do things like roller coasters actually feel painful instead of fun? Do you feel emotions very deeply? Do certain foods affect you more than they seems to affect other people? Do you ever get called “too sensitive”? If any of these apply to you, or other similar things, you may be a highly sensitive person, like me.
I’d love to hear from you!
What in your life would you most love help with? Anxiety? Overwhelm? Relationships?

This is where you come in. I’d love to hear your type, what causes you stress, and how you overcome & mitigate it. Feel free to comment on the blog post, but also email me! I’d love to hear from you: email@example.com
Everyone uses all eight letters of the MBTI. However, everyone also has a natural preference for one letter over the other, which makes up your four-letter type. When we use our preference letter that is not natural to us too often, this is what causes us stress. For example, an introvert who is in sales as a career may experience stress throughout the day, or exhaustion at the end of a long day, in which they had to speak and outwardly express themselves to many individuals. This does mean the introvert is not good at sales, it just means that they are living outside of their normal preference letter.
I want to start out with a reminder that all type preferences are equal. No type preference is better than another, and we all use each preference type in our day to day life. The big reason that you would want to know your preference type and to understand it, is that if you are living your life in another preference type letter consistently, this will cause you emotional and mental stress, and this is what leads to burn out, whether it be in your job, or relationships or any other areas of life.
I finished reading the Surrender Experiment, by Michael A. Singer in one day. One. Day. It was SO good. My theory is that it was written by an INTP, and he is a really great storyteller. It really inspired me to set out to silence the constant chatter in my brain, and work on surrendering to what life throws my way.
The concept of personality type temperament and spirituality has come up a lot in the course of my day to day discussions this week, so I thought I’d share some thoughts on it and ask for some feedback. Let me know if you agree or disagree in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am genuinely interested to know what you all think!
As we approach a new year, I’ve started to reflect on the year 2020 (not an easy task), and also start to plan and prepare for 2021. I have never been a fan of new year resolutions. We tend to aim too high, and don’t have a clear plan or path to actually get to our goals. Then, we get disappointed in ourselves and all that negative self-talk comes in. I’ve been guilty of this too, I think everyone does it because we get really excited about a new beginning and a “fresh start” and we forget that we are only actually human, and nothing changes all that quickly (le sigh).
Asking for help when you need it is HARD. I am actually BAD at it. When I say bad, I mean really bad. I never want to bother anyone and have them think of me as “needy”. I always want to be and appear fiercely independent and I always think I can do everything myself.
