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?

“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?

It’s no secret that Introverts like their privacy but, for many introverted folks, opening up doesn’t come naturally – not even to those we trust and love.

Getting enough alone time is important to introverted types, but if they’re skipping events to be alone, they often feel a major case of FOMO.

When ENFJs and INFPs get together, they frequently create relationships that are both harmonious and long-lasting.

They tend to be on the same wavelength, and the bonds they forge often transcend the need for explanation or interpretation.

Dreamer. Idealist. Artist. Peacemaker. Corporate Go-Getter. Which of these doesn’t come to mind when you think of an INFP?

“I’ll never be able to delegate. I just don’t have the personality for it.”
