INFP vs. INTP: How to Tell Them Apart

Confidence for Introverts (Not Another Patronizing and Simplistic Guide)

Confidence is normally described as a belief in yourself and your abilities. I don't like this definition because it feels too static. In my mind, self-confidence is not a single belief or idea but a process; it's how you function despite all the challenges you face and the critics who will make you question yourself.

The INTP Female: A Highly Misunderstood Group

She might be sitting near the back of the room, near the edges. Not all the way back, because that would increase the likelihood of being called upon.

INTP Thinking About Freelancing? Consider This Before You Jump

There’s no ideal way to work – just an ideal attitude to adapting.

The gig economy has led to more and more of us working short-term jobs, often remotely and/or with teams of strangers. Some choose to work this way, but for many, it is becoming a necessity. In fact, it's reckoned that freelancers will dominate the US workforce within the next decade. As things stand, around a third of free agents work this way because they have no other choice.
