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.

Why TJs Can't Apologize (Sorry!)

I'm British and we're famous for how frequently we say sorry.

That's not part of the story.
