Fridays @ Five: Five Things We Loved this Week: The Birthday Edition


Every Friday, we send out an exclusive list of five unique or interesting things we’ve found (or explored) around the web during the week.

It may include books, gadgets, albums, articles, new hacks/tricks, and — of course — all sorts of weird stuff we dig up around the web. It’s often focused on Intuitive things and personal growth. Please feel free to spread the word with friends who would also enjoy.  

 

GUESS WHAT ELSE? I’VE BEEN WRITING THIS SERIES FOR A WHOLE YEAR!

 

When I started writing these posts last April, I hadn’t fully processed that I was committing to something every week. I was worried I wouldn’t find enough stuff, (as if the world doesn’t continue to produce and create new things all the time)  or I wouldn’t know what to say–so the fact that this has been going on for a whole year, and people read these is crazy and unfathomable to me. Thank you!

1. THE ART OF CHARM: A LIFESTYLE PODCAST

Personality Hacker is focused on self-improvement and personal growth–I imagine that if you’re reading this, you are too. I recently found a podcast called “The Art of Charm,” which focuses on ways for growth-focused individuals to improve themselves through expert advice from guest speakers. I’ve been listening to it a lot recently, and it’s actually a really great resource.

 

 

 

 

 

2. WHY HUMANS ARE SO BAD AT THINKING ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE

This recent video from Vox media discusses how our weakness with thinking about abstract concepts affects our climate and future.

 

 

 

 

 

3. WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR MEMORY

This article that was shared in Intuitive Awakening focuses on some of the ways to help improve longterm memory, like mneumonics and the famous “mind palace,” of Sherlock fame. I prefer to write things down (I have a terrible memory) but I may try some of these. How do you keep up with your day-to-day tasks? Do you think iNtuitives have worse memories than Sensors?

 

 

 

 

4.  FREERICE

I definitely pride myself on being a big reader, and part of being a bookworm (for me) is learning a lot of weird and interesting words. This website called Freerice was shared in IA a few days ago. I used to love seeing how high of a score I could get in one sitting, but I had forgotten about it. If you want to test your word-knowledge, I encourage you to check it out.

 

 

5. CARL JUNG ON ACCEPTING THE DARKNESS OF SELF AND OTHERS

This is a great clip of Alan Watts talking about Carl Jung and his “integration of self,” through accepting the darkness that everyone carries instead of projecting it outward. It’s incredibly insightful. If you’re a fan of either MBTI Or Jung, listen to it–it’s worth a ponder.

 

 

 

So there you have it. Of course these picks reflect some of my personal biases and interests – but having hung around the Personality Hacker community for a while now – and being personal growth focused – I’m pretty sure you will find at least one thing from the above list to be interesting.

 

Also – leave a comment or your thoughts below. Love to hear what you think.
