Calculus is so hard that I can’t even think of a pun for it like that post about

Why learn calcul-us when I can just learn how to use a calcul-ator?





Q
Hi ! I've been trying to determine which type I belong to for some time now and I'm still not sure. From what I read, I'm either an INFP or and ENFP. I think I'm closer to ENFP (I'm very talkative, I like meeting new people and exchanging ideas) than INFP, but I've traits from INFP too (I only have a small circle of friends, social interactions tire me after some time). What do you think my type is ? What would differenciate these two types ? (Sorry if I'm bothering you & for my awful English)

I don’t really have enough information to make a judgment on your type. It’s really just reading the profiles and thinking about which one you connect to more. You can find things that you relate to in practically every profile of the 16 types, but there will only be one where you say, “Yes, I do that all the time!” as you read through the characteristics. Do you have a small circles of close friends? Or a small circle of friends? The people you consider friends- do you talk to them all the time? When you say you like exchanging ideas, what do you mean? If you get tired from social interaction, it sounds like you’re an INFP. ENFPs don’t really get tired from socializing. Do you think you depend on approval from others? Do you need lots of praise and compliments to reassure yourself that you’re doing well? Do you have strong opinions about moral principles, or can you be persuaded to change your mind if someone talks to you for a bit? There are so many little details I don’t know about you that would help determine which type you are. Since there’s only one letter of difference between ENFP and INFP, the details matter.


Q
I know you don't think of test results very highly but every time I take it it says I'm infj and a lot of it seems to relate to me but my question is (it's not urgent for you to anwser) could I be infj if I'm not very emphatetic. I know empathy is very important for infjs and I do seem to feel a lot for other people friends and colleagues and feel very protective of people who can't fight for themselves but when it comes to my family I'm distanced. I just don't care. Is it possible that I'm infj

It’s true that I don’t think highly of online tests because they are just not able to grasp the full capacity of someone’s personality. But like you, most online tests have told me that I am an INFJ.

It is absolutely possible to be an INFJ and not have strong empathy. The empathy stems from the Fe function, which strives to create harmony for the people around us and make everybody else feel good. But you might be stuck in an Ni-Ti loop, where your Ni function is primarily supported by your Ti, thus appearing more “cold” and not feeling as strongly for others.

However, you say that you do care a lot about friends and colleagues, just not your family. It may be possible that you are simply distanced from your family for a variety of reasons and don’t care as much about them because of difficulties in the past or differences that you might have.

I’M VOMITING

For those of you who don’t know, these white people have appropriated Maori culture with the fake Ta Moko on their faces. These tattoos are incredibly important in Maori culture but Maori are persecuted constantly by white people in New Zealand if they choose to wear them. When Maori do it, they’re criminals, when white people do it, they’re cool and quirky.

Just another example of injustices against indigenous people.

An eighth grade student from Weaverville Elementary School got a detention slip for sharing his school prepared lunch Tuesday.
Kyle Bradford, 13, shared his chicken burrito with a friend who didn’t like the cheese sandwich he was given by the cafeteria.
Bradford didn’t see any problem with sharing his food.
"It seemed like he couldn’t get a normal lunch so I just wanted to give mine to him because I wasn’t really that hungry and it was just going to go in the garbage if I didn’t eat it," said Bradford.
But the Trinity Alps Unified School District has regulations that prohibit students from sharing their meals.
The policies set by the district say that students can have allergies that another student may not be aware of.
Tom Barnett, the Superintendent of the Trinity Alps Unified School District says that hygiene issues also come into play when banning students from sharing meals.
"We have a policy that prohibits students from exchanging meals. Of course if students are concerned about other students not having enough to eat we would definitely want to consider that, but because of safety and liability we cannot allow students to actually exchange meals," said Barnett.
Bradford’s mother Sandy Bradford thinks that her son did the right thing by sharing his lunch. She also believes that it isn’t up to the school to discipline her son for good manners.
“By all means the school can teach them math and the arithmetic and physical education, but when it comes to morals and manners and compassion, I believe it needs to start at home with the parent,” Sandy said.
Bradford says that he would definitely share his lunch again if a friend wanted a portion of his meal.

Kids can’t share now? Or trade lunches? What the actual fuck is happening?

I think this article is talking around what the actual issue is.The student who was “given a cheese sandwich” and “couldn’t get a normal lunch?”That’s how schools handle students whose families can’t pay their lunch bills. They’re required to give the kid something, so they get a slice of processed cheese between two pieces of white bread. Cheese sandwich.All those stories about the kids who went through the lines and then had their trays taken away and dumped in the trash in front of them because their account was $5 in the red when they got to the end of the line?Those kids were given cheese sandwiches.This isn’t about allergies. I guarantee you that kids at those tables are swapping food all the time. It’s part of the school cafeteria experience.If the second kid was allergic to the burrito, we’d be reading a different story.It’s because this kid undermined the system that is supposed to punish students for their parents’ “negligence” (poverty).

They’re not even trying with excuses anymore. “Allergies.”

Q
Hello! I'm an INFJ and I was wondering if it's a trait of ours to be able to adapt our outer personalities in accordance to those around us? It's kind of strange, but I sometimes feel like I'm always trying to meet their needs and I can't all the time. It can get exhausting. Thanks and you have an awesome blog!

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: yes, that is your Fe at work. And it might be working too much. INFJs are susceptible to other people’s needs and emotions and might feel like they need to keep everybody happy. They end up putting everybody before themselves, which is simply unhealthy.

Try to be more critical when it comes to evaluation other people’s needs. Use your Ti function to be more rational about them. Ask yourself “Can I really help this person effectively or will I end up giving up too much of myself?”
