Parenting as a Perceiver: How to Set the Rules

Perceiver personality types can be a lot of fun to spend time around. They’re playful and good at adapting to new situations with ease.

What To Do When You’re an Intuitive Who Doesn’t Trust Your Instincts

Regardless of personality type, we all have a sixth sense that makes us do, feel or say something that we already know. It might be a physical sensation, like sweaty hands or a knot in the stomach that alerts us to some kind of danger. Or it might be a deep conviction that something is ‘right’, even if we’re not sure why it’s right or what led us to that conclusion. 

How to Set Mid-year Goals That You’ll Stick To

A lot of us set New Year’s resolutions at the start of the year, but how many of us are still keeping to them by June? Setting mid-year goals is a brilliant way to reevaluate and reset your aims, setting you up for the rest of the year still to come. 

Checking in with your goals around the middle of the year can help you take note of what you still want to accomplish. Maybe the challenges you set up for yourself in January aren’t relevant to your life anymore or maybe new priorities have come up since then - after all, quite a lot has changed in the last six months!

Anatomy of a Villain: Dissecting the Personality Types of Characters We All Love to Hate

Tragic and misunderstood, a good villain is a complex character who is created not only to pull apart a hero’s worst tendencies, but to poke holes in human nature itself. They have their own rules and beliefs, working within a system they have either created or sworn fealty to. And no matter how monstrous they can be, they always have an underlying shred of recognizable humanity.

The Extravert's Social Distancing Survival Guide

By now, you’ve certainly heard of the term “social distancing”. In case you’ve been living under a rock, it’s a bona fide strategy for minimizing the spread of COVID-19. Guidelines for social distancing may vary based on geography, time and the severity of the situation but, ultimately, the advice is to avoid (or at least limit) in-person contact with others. Basically, it means canceling events, avoiding crowds, limiting yourself to tiny social gatherings and staying 6 feet away from others. Yes, even in the grocery store. 

ENTP and INFJ Personalities: A Match Made in Heaven?

Have you ever met someone and felt like they absolutely, totally get you? That this person makes you feel alive and excited just by saying hello? If you’re an INFJ who’s met an ENTP, you’ll know exactly what I mean. Many people say that ENTP and INFJ types are made for each other. 

Four ENTP Personality Traits That Could be Costing You Respect at Work

For many ENTP personality types, the corporate world can seem deeply alien. No amount of innovation or charm can mask the contrast between the traditional expectations of the workplace and the free-wheeling, wacky, inventor lifestyle that ENTPs often find most comfortable. If left unexamined, this incongruity can manifest in some unsavory workplace habits that only put more distance between ENTP personality types and their professional communities. 

The ENTP Personality’s Guide To Self-Care

I’ll be honest: an appreciation for health and wellness doesn’t come naturally to me. Like many people who type as an ENTP personality, I find physical self-maintenance to be one of the least intuitive aspects of my life. I derive little pleasure from the rituals required to brighten my skin, heal my gut, and dodge premature visits from the Grim Reaper. One would think that two decades of life on Earth would be enough to teach me that I am not just a brain in a jar. And yet, I am still routinely surprised to discover that I have organs and cells that need tending to.
