What Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Was Like As A Child

ENTJ: The child who ruled the playground through a mixture of intimidation and sophisticated political tactics.

ISTP: The child whose LEGO skills were matched only by educated architects.

INFJ: The ‘old soul’ child who acted like more of an adult than their parents.

ESTP: The daredevil child who got themselves banned from most of the playground equipment by second grade.

ENFJ: The child whom everyone in their class referred to as their best friend.

ESFP: The class clown who considered no stunt too dangerous if it would temporarily earn them the spotlight.

ISFP: The easy-going child who always volunteered to go along with whatever game or activity would make their friends the happiest.

ENFP: The wildly imaginative child who had ten thousand different answers to the question “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

ESFJ: The popular child who dictated the rules of the playground by selectively handing out friendship necklaces. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather

Let go now
