Welcome back! I am cooking my way through the 1929 Photoplay cookbook (recipes of the stars!) and you are invited to tag along. (I have listed all the recipes I have tested on this dedicated page. Check back often.) Today, we will be testing a recipe from someone who is considered to be one of the symbols of silent film.
Gloria Swanson started in comedy, jumped to drama and was one of the top…
MBTI Personality Types do not define one’s personality. They describe how one’s brain works…
Please recognize that you are so much more than those four letters.
Please remember that we are all unique and have very special personalities that can only be created by our genes and experiences.
But definitely relish in the fact that you now know how you process information and use that brainpower to its fullest potential to grow, transform and improve your very individual personality.
The biggest problem I have seen with MBTI (and some other personality typing systems) is that people use them as a way to excuse their more unpleasant traits. I had a run-in with someone who claimed to be INTJ and so went out of her way to be as rude and condescending as possible, all while loudly proclaiming her “type”
Nope. She wasn’t doing it because she was an INTJ. She was doing it because she is an obnoxious jerk who was using MBTI as an excuse.
I’m an INTJ, too, but I’m very kind and always willing to help others. It just describes how my brain functions, not who I am as a person. Your MBTI type can help you determine your mental strengths and weaknesses and apply that to completing tasks like work and studies.
That’s all it is. Nothing is an excuse for being a jerk.
Preach it! I’m an INFP and I don’t use MBTI to excuse my tendencies toward self-absorption, passive aggression, and oversensitivity toward criticism. I see these as obstacles I must overcome to grow as a person.
Yes, I have had to soften myself down (another INTJ) and have made an effort to curb a know-it-all tendency.
