The INTJ Personality

“INTJ” is one of 16 psychological types used in the Myers Briggs Type Indicator.

In case you’ve never heard of The Myers Briggs Personality Type Indicator, the MBTI preferences indicate the differences in people based on the following traits and preferences: 1

  • How they focus their attention or get their energy (extraversion or introversion)
  • How they perceive or take in information (sensing or intuition)
  • How they prefer to make decisions (thinking or feeling)
  • How they orient themselves to the external world (judgement or perception)

“You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”
– Harlan Ellison

The most important points to know about INTJs:

  • INTJs spend a lot of time inside their own minds, and may have little interest in the other people’s thoughts or feelings. That doesn’t mean that he or she doesn’t truly have affection or regard for others, they simply do not typically feel the need to express it.  2
  • INTJ’s have a tremendous value and need for systems and organization2
  • The INTJ’s interest in dealing with the world is to make decisions, express judgments, and put everything that they encounter into an understandable and rational system.2
  • INTJs may go so far as to see many social conventions as downright stupid.3

Desiderata, Max Ehrmann 1927

“Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble, it’s a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantement, it is as perrenial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.”

— Desiderata, Max Ehrmann 1927

Men’s Skin Care


I’m not one to post skin products but I had extremely awful acne growing up. SO BAD! I don’t have a single blemish anymore and these are the products I would recommend for any one struggling with their skin.

#1 25% TCA Chemical Peel:

This is the number one thing I would recommend for anyone struggling with acne. It fixed all my skin problems with only one application and even helped with my acne scarring and I only have to do a treatment every 4 months to keep the great results! Do TONS of research before using this product! If the peel is done incorrectly you can permanently ruin your skin. 

 

#2 Clinique Skin Supplies for Men

I use the Clinique Skin Supplies 3-step skin care system 2.5 (not the 3.5 as pictured). I have skin that is oily and dry so its gentle enough and throughly cleans, moisturizes and really keeps everything flat as I tend to get small

bumps on my forehead. the lotion leaves my skin looking suple but not oily.

#3 Mario Badescu Silver Powder

I have huge pores under my eyes and blackheads on my nose. I put this powder on for 10 minuets and my pores are much noticeably smaller and the blackheads are completely gone. I use it when ever I feel I need it and it works great!

retin-a#4 Retin-A

This one is prescription only. It’s a derivative of Vitamin-A and is generally prescribed for Acne. Although, I don’t use it for Acne. I use it because Vitamin A is a strong antioxidant and can also provide daily micro-peels. It’s the best anti-aging cream out there and if you can get past 2-4 weeks of your skin looking sun-burnt, tight, and dry, your skin will glow! It also makes my #1-The TCA Chemical Peel work deeper and more evenly. This is the best option but if you can’t get your hand on a prescription find something with retinoid or retinal these are lower dose over the counter options.

40 Billion Farm Animals Abused Worldwide Per Year

I’ve always been meat hungry carnivore, and I believe their is evidence to show that we are built to eat meat.

HOWEVER, I can’t argue with this…

”The abuse of 40 billion farm animals worldwide per year is the worst karmic disaster humankind has ever promoted”- Uncle Rush

I’m considering not eating any meat for the sole fact that the meat available to us as Americans isn’t killed with the respect every living thing deserves. If I put it in my body it should be killed with dignity and a respect for the life that is taken.

Let Freedom Grow!

2fb2c4dc3e3066af2b6b511a2054479bAs California votes on an initiative to legalize marijuana, people need to be aware of the full extent of it’s result. I don’t do marijuana, and I wouldn’t ordinarily utilize my time on a subject like this and certainly wouldn’t want to attach my name to a pro-marijuana campaign but the scope of this decision is far greater then enabling stoners.

“What I think is horrible about all of this, is that we criminalize young people. And we use so many of our excellent resources … for things that aren’t really causing any problems,” said Elders. “It’s not a toxic substance.” – Former U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders
