INFP tip #69

INFPs primary mode is introverted feeling. That means: We are in our heads a lot. We have a tendency to overthink. To us every single thought generates 2 more. And we can get almost paralyzed by our thoughts. Creating invisible barriers and being unable to take action. We have to be careful about this, and push ourselves to take action.

The best way to know if you should do something is sometimes to simply do it, and see … Continue reading INFP tip #69

INFP tip #68

Focus less on what you think others think, and more on your own beliefs. Take time to define your personal values, what you believe in, who you are. You don’t know what others think.

Life is made of highs and lows, and great accomplishments and big fails. And it’s normal. The problem with putting too much importance on your mistakes is letting it affect your self-esteem.
