The “Unicorn Asshole” is the affectionate term I use to refer to my Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).  I am an INTJ which is evidently one of the more rare combinations and even more so in the female population.  Pinterest got me interested in the whole MBTI thing and it’s answered a whole lot of questions about why I am the way I am (it’s also where I found the image). My favorite sources from the big P around the INTJ type are:

If you don’t know your MBTI, I highly suggest taking the free quiz found at https://www.16personalities.com.  The quiz is fun, but their website is full of information an it’s graphically AMAZING!  I promise you won’t be sorry you took the time to explore yourself using the tool.

Once I started hoarding knowledge about being an INTJ, I’ve become adept at identifying them, and it turns out, we tend to attract each other!  We’re not everyone’s cup of tea because we see opportunity for improvement EVERYWHERE.  We have very direct communication styles so we aren’t going to tell you how to do your thing better in a sugar coated way either.  We move forward, even when we’ve made a misstep, but you’ll probably never know we made a misstep in the first place.  We are the (wo)man with the plan in all situations, but we can, and most of the time prefer, to lead without authority.  It’s that whole introverted thing that probably saves us from being tarred and feathered on a regular basis.

The significance of being an INTJ plays out in so many elements of my life, so there are definitely going to be more posts illustrating the point.  The key takeaway for today though… Know your MBTI and embrace it!
