#Inspiration-December

52-inspirationdec

Another month gone by, but I suppose it’s not just any old month, it is also the end of the year 2016. And there are many things that have brought me joy and inspired me this month.

  1. Harry Potter

I am so glad I’m finally able to read this series, I watched the entire movie series and for some reason it never occurred to me to read the books until now (btw, I’ve already finished the first five books).

Minimalism: A Documentary Review

51-minimalism-review

Minimalism’s true definition can sometimes be skewed by stereotypes, but like Sustainable Fashion, it too has been adopted by many individuals. This documentary Minimalism: a Documentary about the Important Things recently went on Netflix and I watched it as soon as I could. I had been hoping it would go on Netflix when I first discovered the film through my personal/school-related research into minimalism and over-consumption.

Bloom: Book Review

50-bloom-review

Hey Readers, I can’t believe how busy I have been lately, but I am trying so hard to keep up with blogging and putting out new content for all of you.

Anyway, I have been doing lots of reading lately, it’s been a few weeks into December, and I’ve already read five books, (honestly I’m just happy I’m actually reading again in general now that I don’t have to read anything for school), so I thought it was time for another good book review. This time it is Bloom: Navigating Life and Style by Estee Lalonde. Known for her YouTube beauty channel and my favourite series by her called Femtalk; she released this book in early October and I’ve only now just bought it, but it was absolutely amazing.

The synopsis reads:

In Bloom, Estee Lalonde shares the moments, people, and things that have made her who she is today. She reveals her life lessons and offers her tips for surviving life and finding yourself.

Celebrate your bloom story and what makes you unique.

Understanding INTJs: Part 2

49-intj-part-2

INTJs are of the top most misunderstood types, and I can vouch for that. It’s truly frustrating trying to explain to someone close to you how differently you think. In Part 1 I explained the functions and what I thought they applied to relationships, whether that be a friendship or otherwise.

But of course it’s never enough to only explain how we see the world, so here are a few tips as to how others can understand us (even just a little bit).

1.We already understand you.

Know that when you want to understand us, we already understand you. I mean it gets to the point where someone may know very little about me, but I can predict their words and actions like its second nature.

Understanding INTJs: Part 1

48-intj-part-1

I first discovered the MBTI types three years ago, and since then I have learned and been able to grow from knowing my type. The most difficult part of being an INTJ, however, is not learning how to understand yourself, but getting others to understand you.

When I was younger it was easy for me to understand someone. Almost automatically knowing if this person was trustworthy, or friendly, and while I didn’t have a name for it then I do now. It was my introverted Intuition, or Ni function. Something that I didn’t learn until later was difficult for people to do, came so effortlessly to me.

In this series there will again be two parts, this post will include a brief overview of the functions, and what they mean to me. The second part will go more in depth of how INTJs understand others, and hopefully how that can give a bit of insight into how others can understand us. The four Functions are:

  • Introverted Intuition (Ni)
  • Extroverted Thinking (Te)
  • Introverted Feeling (Fi)
  • Extroverted Sensing (Se)

Quiet: A Book Review

47-quiet-review

First things first: It’s my Birthday! Yay!

Ok now that that is out of the way let’s get to today’s post; a book review of Susan Cain’s Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking.

This book resonated with me more than any other book I’ve ever read. Cain writes in a way that is both technical and yet understandable (something I think is hard to come by).

Being such a strong introvert myself, reading Quiet makes me appreciate my natural introverted tendencies even more and helped me understand myself better. Like anyone I’m constantly learning new things about myself, and I find the more I know about myself, the more confident I become.
