As an INFJ (Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging) (Myers-Briggs), I live in a world of hidden meanings and am more interested in what is possible than what is actual. I prefer having a vivid imagination over having a strong hold on reality and my supernormal intuition can take the form of visions or uncanny communications with certain individuals at a distance. My ARTIST (Dominant Introvert Abstract Feeler)(Spark) aspect allows me to have a rich inner life that often turns the real world into a prison of foolishness and embarrassment. The Abstract-Random (Gregoric) side of me is not inhibited by logic and gives me a colorful, flighty, media-oriented persecutive on things. Finally, as a Type 4:Artist (Riso-Hudson) I enjoy probing issues like femininity and pop culture with open-ended playfulness, fantasying and exploring the potential of non-linguistic communication.
