We Are The INFPs, Introverts But So Much More

We Are The INFPs, Introverts But So Much More

A few well-known INFP's are William Shakespeare, Alicia Keys and Tom Hiddleston.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a personality inventory that categorizes everyone into 16 different personality types. Each personality is based off a 4 letter code with each letter meaning something different. For example, 4.4% of the U.S. population, including myself, are categorized as an INFP.

But what makes someone in INFP? Let's break it down a bit. Each person falls into 1 of the 2 options for each category.

Introversion vs. Extroversion

Intuition vs. Sensing

Thinking vs. Feeling

Judging vs. Perceiving

So, if you're an INFP you are more likely to be introverted, intuitive, feeling orientated, and more perceiving.

A few well-known INFP's are William Shakespeare, Alicia Keys, Tom Hiddleston.

It's no surprise that I fall into the INFP group and that I am more in tune with my creative side since INFPs tend to use their intuitive personality to look at everything from multiple perspectives. This allows us to take make subtopics and link them into one whole idea. IFNPs are also incredibly passionate about everything they do. If something ignites a spark in them then they take it and run.

While creativity and passion may seem like excellent traits and usually are, INFPs are also experts at taking their ideas and blowing them up past reasonable expectations. Often times that can lead to discouragement because INFPs have a tendency to dig in when it comes to projects and when they fail it can seem even more discouraging to them than other personalities types. Most things INFPs take personally and failure one of those.

The Dangers Of Electric Scooters

Lookout for the Limes. Beware the Birds.


They appeared out of nowhere.

I can only imagine a bunch of men dressed in all black showed up in big vans with tinted windows and planted them on grounds in the middle of the night.

And the next day, we were off.

I have to admit, I was slightly terrified by them at first. The traffic. The attention that inevitably comes with a bright green scooter.

But after a few weeks, I found the courage to face my fears, and it was the most beautiful thing I'd ever experienced.

I ride a Lime E-Scooter almost every day. Running late for class? Scooter. Not in the mood for the overcrowded, time-sensitive bus? Scooter. In need of a little pick me up on the way home from a particularly long day? Scooter.

The scooters have become my outlet, my best friends.

But I didn't foresee one daunting factor: the cost.

And no, I don't mean the physical cost when you wipe out and skin a knee. Not all the time I waste running around grounds looking for a scooter instead of getting on a bus or walking. No, I mean the money, baby.

The lime scooter isn't that expensive really. It is only a dollar to get started and then fifteen cents per minute. But, let me tell you, those few dollars and some change add up. I've reached the point where I'm scared to look at my bank account. I have no idea how much money I'm pouring into these e-scooters, but I know that it's way more than I can afford. In fact, at this point, it probably might be more efficient for me to buy a scooter of my own, but the appeal is just not the same.

I love that the scooters are waiting for me around almost every turn. I love that I can drop them off and not bat an eye. I'm obsessed with the ease, the speed, and the wind in my hair. Not even my bright green debit card can change my mind.

Should I stop relying on the Lime E-Scooters so heavily? Probably, yes. Will I? Most definitely not.

So here is a fair warning to you all: be cautious of scooters that appear in the middle of the night. They might just rob your wallet while they light up your life.
