While in the early stages of planning Playful Girl 2019, my thoughts went to unicorns and rainbows. [See tomorrow’s blog post for details!] Unicorns were never a thing for me, barely on my radar. But I notice them everywhere now and have been allowing the little girl in me to indulge… for planning purposes, of course. Imagine my surprise upon learning my personality type is sometimes referred to AS A UNICORN!

The INFJ personality type makes up less than one percent of the population, which is how it earned the nickname. Another reason to indulge. 😀

I have been thinking about yesterday’s blog post and everything going on with my family of origin. There is a driving force I am seeking to understand (which is what lead to the whole reading-up-on-my-personality-type business). I found this blurb about my type on 16Personalities:


INFJs tend to see helping others as their purpose in life, “their real passion is to get to the heart of the issue so that people need not be rescued at all.

YES! That is it, the very thing pushing me right now. Wanting others to be equipped to protect themselves. I am doing my best to share only what is necessary for that purpose. Which means for now, some of my personal posts might look a little cryptic.

Perhaps understanding why might help those of you who regularly read my blog.
