I had personally never heard of the types until my senior year of high school. I’ll never forget it. At a time in your life when you feel so misunderstood and so lonely, I had an amazing English teacher explain to me why I felt that way. I didn’t feel so left out, odd, and ahead of the times because I was a classic high school student; I felt that way because I have the rarest of all the types: INFJ. Because of Ms. Donna Kreiling, I have an answer to every question that burned a hole in me for so many years.
This is who I am. I hope that you find yourself too.
