No wonder tired head set in early this week. As an introvert, a week of 6-7 daily interviews wears me completely out. On the drive home i could actually feel my brain shutting down. i don't really know how to think about nothing (Mediation is a challenge. The closest i've gotten is thinking about black. Which is such a good color--or really, lack thereof--and oh, so slimming. So i'm sure you'll agree, there are all kinds of good black things to think of.). So, while interesting to experience nothing on the brain, not a good activity while hurtling up the Tollway with my fellow commuters.

According to this ditty about INFPs (my MBTI type - Introverted, Intuitive, Feeler, Perceiver [Perceiver = Procrastinator *surprise*], no wonder i'm tired.

Seriously -- "INFPs are introspective, private, creative and highly idealistic individuals that have a constant desire to be on a meaningful path. They are driven by their values and seek peace. Empathetic and compassionate, they want to help others and humanity as a whole." This makes me tired just reading it.

And yes.... "Simply the act of 'creating' will be a fulfilling source of renewal and refreshment to the INFP. An INFP should allow himself or herself some artistic outlet, because it will add enrichment and positive energy to their life" certainly does.

"Creative, smart (lol), idealist, loner, attracted to sad things (must be why i love Depeche Mode), disorganized (um, not really... pack rat maybe), avoidant (absolutely... it will eventually go away... the only time my patience abounds) can be overwhelmed by unpleasant feelings (so aren't most folks?)..."

"Their job must be fun, although not raucous, and it must be meaningful to them. They need a strong purpose in their work. They want to be recognized and valued, without undue attention given to them. They may become embarrassed when made the center of attention." Thanks goodness for my fantabulous job! Even the days i have to be an extrovert... oh, that's most days.

Speaking of being an extrovert.... Colonel Mustard meets Scooby's friend "Shaggy" at our Halloween skit last Friday.
