Have you done the Myers-Briggs test? I did mine a long time ago but it never changes much. I’m an INFP, super heavy on the introverted part. A dreamer/mediator/healer. And it makes sense, I guess. INFP’s are often writers. They’re pure idealists, always looking for good in bad, and are usually perceived as shy, isolated and misunderstood. They listen to everyone but usually only pick one single cause to focus on, otherwise they get too overwhelmed with the bad in the world. They easily lose touch and withdraw into hermit mode, and it takes a lot of energy from friends and family to bring them back. They are focused on kindness and compassion but are too idealistic, setting themselves up for disappointment as evil things happen in the world. They are loyal, apologize to inanimate objects and crave harmony.
It’s eerily accurate, but I can’t decide if it’s accurate because I’m answering the questions that put me into a group that matches my answers or if the group already exists and the answers help me understand who I am. Regardless, I often ask friends what their personality type is because it helps me understand the issues we’ll have.
I’m interested though in what your personality type is. INFP is supposedly rare (composing just 4% of the population) but I wonder if that’s true here? Do we all attract like-minds? Or is it our difference that pulls us together? Regardless, I’d like to know. You can take a quick version of the test here if you haven’t already. Leave it below, y’all.

And now, the weekly wrap-up:
Shit I made in my shop (Named “EIGHT POUNDS OF UNCUT COCAINE” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):
- Totes MaGoates was in Interview Magazine. Sort of.
- Recommended book of the week: Squirrel Girl. Hailey isn’t old enough for Deadpool so this is the next closest thing. Funny and clever and good reading with or without kids. Halfway through Volume 2 now and it’s still crunchy in milk.
- Good company.
