What does ISFJ stand for? Hint: If you are here, you probably know.

ISFJ stands for Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, and Judging. Taking a personality test and learning about yourself can really help you get in tune to how you interact with others and yourself. I have learned a lot about my own personality type through classes I have taken and through the Internet, but there is always more to learn.

If you are an ISFJ like me, here are some signs of your personality type.

1. You like your alone time.

Now, I don’t think I am as introverted as I used to be, but I still get overwhelmed if I am around people for too long. Introverted people tend to be overstimulated by people or activities in their environments. Depending on how introverted you are, you are able to handle public settings for longer or shorter times.

2. You like to stick with the facts.

The practical and realistic information is what helps you make decisions. You tend not to rely on your emotions, but you still let them influence you. You process information by thinking about past events, and you use those to help guide you through life.

3. You are very observant.

You live in the present and take in what is around you, and you notice a lot of the little details. As a person, I am sensitive to those around me, and I can detect changes in their moods. I can tell if something is even the slightest off with my friends. If you are Sensing like me, you notice a lot of things that others don’t, which sometimes can be a little too much.

4. You are so caring.

Since ISFJ’s are Feeling types, they feel emotions so deeply. Generally, you are very empathetic and value compassion. You like to see people get along and you make sure people know you are a friend they can turn to when they need someone.

5. You are very organized.

Structure is important to you and you like to keep your life as orderly as you can. Judging types tend to have the clean desks with their things stacked neatly together.

6. You make goals and stick with them.

Some ISFJ’s keep notebooks and list their goals, crossing them off as they go. Some just keep an ongoing list in their heads, changing and rearranging things on a daily basis. You like to stay focused until the end, and you tend to work first and then have fun.

7. You value relationships with others.

You are very loyal and like to make new long lasting friends. You like relationships where you know you can count on the other person long term.

8. You like fitting into social situations and institutions.

You like to know what you can do for other people and for the institutions, and you feel fulfilled when you can play your part. You don’t like being in the spotlight though, but you enjoy behind the scenes work.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
