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.

As with most Introverts, INFPs are a private sort, which means it can be difficult to read their most intimate feelings. Emotional and often spiritual, INFP personalities enjoy having plenty of alone time when they can reflect on the mysteries of life.
