This Is You At Your Best and Your Worst In Relationships, Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

While we’re all different, how we navigate our relationships is closely intertwined with our Myers and Briggs personality preferences. Check out your personality type below to see what you look like in a relationship—at your very best and your absolute worst.  

Are INFPs Really More Ambitious Than They Seem?

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

You guessed it, the last one. As dreamers, we definitely have ambitious goals for our lives and careers, but we might seem passive or too stuck in our heads to really go after our goals.

But actually, INFPs can be very ambitious in our own way. So why don’t we project that image – at all? Let’s look at five possible reasons. 

Help! I Can’t Delegate!

“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.”

INFPs, the compassionate, idealistic, “healers” of the Myers and Briggs personality system, have many positive traits that make us great friends, employees, and colleagues. We’re good at tuning into others’ feelings and putting ourselves in their shoes. We pick up on subtle cues others miss, and we’re creative and imaginative.

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. 

Body Language Tips for Introverts: Changing Your Body Language Can Change Your Life!

How often have you heard someone say that body language makes up 90 percent of communication? The number may or may not be true, but we definitely know that our words are only one avenue of communication. Body language conveys information about thoughts, perceptions, moods, and emotions, which other people pick up on either consciously or subconsciously.

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!
