Study after study has proven that Extraverts make more money than Introverts. We’re not talking a few dollars either, but often tens of thousands of dollars more.

Frida Kahlo was an artist known for her self-portraits. She is remembered as one of the greatest Mexican artists of all time and one of the most significant artists of the 20th century. Most of her art symbolized the pain and passion built through a lifetime of suffering. As a young girl, she suffered a near-fatal spine injury that became a major theme in her art. Her posthumous popularity has made Kahlo an icon for feminists, Chicanos and the LGBTQ community.
When Introverts become angry, they tend to hold everything inside, hiding their anger from others and even from themselves.
Or at least this is what most people think. In fact, this idea is more myth than reality.

Every type has its own set of unique strengths and weaknesses. While we are aware of our individual differences, it’s easy to make assumptions across the board regarding particular groups and how they operate. This becomes too apparent when we look into the types that have an "F" in their four-letter combination. Here, the assumption is that they’re going to be overtly emotional and not as logical. There’s another way to say this, and that’s to assume that people with a strong Feeling preference don't struggle emotionally. Isn’t it strange that we never phrase it this way?
Once a singer known for her catchy pop tracks, Rihanna has blossomed over the course of her career into a trendsetting fashion and beauty mogul as well. She plays by her own rules and isn’t afraid to go against the grain in her style and career choices. “I don’t do things for response or controversy,” she has said. “I just live my life.”
“I love me, I love me not. I love me, I love me not.” Introverts, does this sound like the voice in your head as it nears Valentine’s Day—or maybe every day?
Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate the people you love or appreciate in your life. But how much do you appreciate your own talents, strengths and unique experiences that make up who you are?
“I’ll never be able to delegate. I just don’t have the personality for it.”
Well, yes and no. Or, more specifically, no and yes. Delegation phobia, as I like to call it, is definitely rooted in personality. My ENFJ friend has no problem with it. She recently told an entire meeting, “Someone needs to write these thank-you letters, and I’d prefer it not to be me.”
