    Oh, and I absolutely LOVE being in a small group and facilitating discussion. Any idea if I’m a P or J based on what I said there?

    I think I get into flow when in nature taking a walk, sketching, writing, researching, brainstorming with friends over what to do next. I’m not sure what that means but I tend to test as an ENTP or an ENTJ, sometimes an INTP or INTJ (but I think I’m an E). I just have my moments cause I’m around six children all day (love it but yeah, it can make me want to be alone for a couple hours on occasion).

    I think the most amazing thing about this, and about the cognitive functions in general, is that Carl Jung seems to have hit on a set of “first principles” with his work on personality. You guys are making these principles accessible. When I read books I consider “guiding star resources” about finding your passion, designing your life, the best habits to have, living essentially etc. I can see cognitive functions at the bottom of many of these great ideas. Mostly, the authors of these books do not seem to realize that they are essentially all talking about the same things (with many awesome nuances and wisdom added besides). The same principles just seem to keep emerging for me and folding themselves in on each other like a puff pastry, reinforcing learning and broadening application. Understanding your type and, better yet, applying it to flow seems an indispensable part of building an enjoyable experience of a life. I have a lot of work to do, but I am getting unstuck with your help and others. I would love to hear episodes more directly linked to flow and the individual personality types (or groups of types).

    Joel and Antonia…
    I have been listening to and looking forward to your Personality Hacker podcasts for 8 years now. In that amount of time, I believe I have missed very few of them.
    Your recent podcast on Flow State and how to access it is especially helpful for me, as I am retired and wondering how to invigorate my daily life.
    Thanks for the actionable steps along with great advice.

    What a unique experience Brendi. Having a best friend with the same type preferences sounds really fun. I bet you both really get each other. Thank you for sharing.
