A Rare Look into an INFJ ENTP Relationship

An INFJ ENTP Relationship

I’m in a long-term INFJ ENTP relationship. I have been with my ENTP husband for over 28 years. Yes, we’re in love. Yes, we have kids. And, we both work from home, so we’re around each other a LOT. And, yes, we would both do it all over again. The INFJ and ENTP relationship has two personality types who share intuition as their dominant cognitive function. Is this why we’re so compatible? In the MBTI Function Stack, we’re opposites in our secondary and tertiary functions, so is it the old adage that opposites attract? The function stack is just to […]

Unexpected Ways Minimalism Liberates the Introvert Mind

introverts and minimalism

Introverts need minimalism, but before we get to why, what is your minimalism “style”? People interpret minimalism in different ways. Some view it as form vs. function. Keep some things, but only the things that are functional. It can also be beautiful, but first and foremost, it must be useful.

My Interest was an Accident I learned I was an INFJ only a few years ago, through a test that my college-aged daughter wanted me to take after learning about MBTI in one of her college courses.

An Introvert Morning Routine I Love

Tea is part of my morning routine.

I’m an Introvert (INFJ), and I’m highly sensitive. No surprise, but this adds to the importance of having a strong morning routine, which is not always easy for me. I’ve never really been “a morning person”. My husband is, in fact, a BIG morning person. Neither one of us gets much sleep, but somehow he manages to always wake up, rarin’ to go, with a big smile on his face, and a big cup of coffee in his hand. I don’t get it. I really don’t even start to feel like myself until I’ve had a shower, but I’ve started […]

How it Really Feels to be an Introvert in Captivity During Covid19

Introvert Covid19

Ever since this whole covid19 pandemic started, little jokes about the introvert knowing how to manage in a time of isolation have gone around the internet, repeatedly. I guess, to some extent, it’s true. Introverts do know how to be alone, but this lockdown is much more extreme than what’s considered normal, even for introverts. Being an introvert during covid19 like we are, I find myself suffering from cabin fever, which is kind of a new concept for me. I actually miss running errands. I feel my motivation for writing waning, and my ideas are few and far between. I […]
