[INFJ] Surrendering to Extraverted Sensing – Peace in the Inferior Function

[INFJ] Surrendering to Extraverted Sensing – Peace in the Inferior Function

Today, and yesterday, I have been working on this painting. It is a new style for me, and very different, in that it is almost cartoon-like, painterly, in it’s etchings (but I really like it; it is natural). The piece is still not done, which is why I have not shared all of it. As it is, I am currently using my newly-fortified knowledge of Personality Type to change my approach to art, and try to find greater happiness while…

A Philosophical Treatise

A Philosophical Treatise

This is a meandering from an article I’m hoping to write, called INFJs and Creativity (which will be on the nature of our inferior function, Extraverted Sensing (Se). I read Dr. A. J.

It is a tricky one, and the internet certainly provided no answers.

Writing and Artistic Creation

Writing and Artistic Creation

I have, for many years, been a writer. Some might say 20, but I cannot remember the exact year I began to write, and indeed, the process of growing up has been a long one. I have learned a lot in this time—about the world, myself, and the structures of man all. But mostly, I like to believe, I have learned of myself, and my values in this life—though the process still is ongoing, as it ever will be. I…
