I’m calling a do-over with my INFP blog




Remember back in 2nd grade playing kickball where you’d get a do-over.  You’d kick the ball into a teacher “by accident” or the ball went into the trees or something and you’d just call a do-over and start again.

Don’t you wish life could be more like that?  Why not?  So I’m calling a do-over for this blog.

When doing something new, like blogging,  I’m the type of person who doesn’t really know if I’m doing it right, but I definitely know when I’m doing it wrong.  It’s that intuitive part of being an INFP that gives me a nagging feeling in the back of my head that something isn’t quite right.

I’ve been reading about blogging (geeky, but why re-invent the wheel) and I’m learning alot.

Blogging is like sex.  Too many words is a turn off unless the phrase “do that some more” is involved in some way.  Also goats are bad.  If it involves goats, you’re probably doing it wrong.  So no blogging about goats.

Hope you stay tuned.  I’ll be adding the shiny later after I redesign the blog (hopefully not on an INFP schedule).

I’ll be writing posts more often.  Please comment.  Comments make me happy.  Comments with the words “do that some more” make me “happy”.  Just sayin’.

    Do-overs are awesome.

    I think that the nice thing about blogging is that you totally get to cry “do-over” as often as you like until you end up with a result that you’re satisfied with.

    I have been reading your blog and I honestly have enjoyed your posts. I haven’t commented lately because I don’t always have the confidence that I should have when it comes to expressing my own opinions.

    I will continue to tune in and in the future. And I’ll comment, even if only to say:

    “do that some more”

    …goats heh 🙂

    I forgot about the do-over. It gave me a laugh. I sometimes think if I had my life to do over knowing what I know now … but, I would probably end up at the same place. I think I am hard wired a certain way, broken in a certain way, and I can’t unknow things I know and I can’t unlearn things I’ve learned.

    That whole “[not] think[ing] [that] past actions or inactions have any bearing on future results” is something my girlfriend has been helping me with. It’s weird, I know, considering some of the other things I’ve written about her here on this blog, but she’s been helping me come to grips with that notion when she’s choosing to do the good tendencies of being INFP. Since being INFP is about change, she’s been helping me with the crappy ISTJ tendency to stagnate.

    “Why feel guilty?” she asks me, since I have a tendency to dwell on my guilt about past mistakes. Me feeling guilty about what I did or didn’t do is what keeps me from taking action. It’s analogous to when she’s being useless by cooping up in her room and railing against the world and it’s injustices.

    Feeling guilty sucks. If I did something bad, why make it worse by feeling guilty? That just keeps me from doing what I need to do to make things better and work on positive changes in my life.

    Oh, but I liked it the way it was! I just discovered this about a week ago and each post I have read was valuable food for much thought! I hope you won’t remove any existing posts because I haven’t had time to read and process most of them.

    Ooops. Now I see that the “do over” was in 2009, not just now. This is embarrassing and brings a question to mind. I have read that an inordinate number of “NF”s are also diagnosed with ADHD. What is your take on the subject.
