A guy sent me this question a couple of weeks ago, and he’d love to have some opinions/comments!
I love trying to figure out what “box” I fit into regarding introvert/extrovert, enneagram , myers briggs, Kolbe. Some people hate being put in a box, but I find it fascinating, and have done all the tests I can find in an attempt to find out what statements ring true for me. I sit in the INFP for one of the tests, and thought I was an enneagram 4 for ages, but now realised that I am closer to a 5.
One of the other parts of who I am is that I hoard lots of stuff. Journals of stuff I have written, drawings, clippings, ideas. I wonder if this is related to being an introvert, or if some introverts embrace the zen minimalist thing. Sometimes I try and head down this path, after all, if there was no junk to have to store, and sort, there would be more time to enjoy the space and time to think of a cup of tea staring at the back yard. But when I do get the rare space (being married with a baby, which is a whole other conversation in trying to eek out some time and space), I want to write in a journal ideas, as dumping the ideas out is a great relief and I really enjoy doing it. But then I get a big pile of journals! And if I try and clean them up, then I open up a journal or diary and get sucked into the ideas I had back then and am lost for an hour, and cant bring myself to throw them away. Would love to hear comments on this!
