Fridays @ Five: Five Things We Loved this Week

We are going to be changing the format of Fridays @ Five just a bit. Up until now, Addison Dunlap has been selecting the resources each week. However, Addison is going to be taking a break since she is busy with college and her summer internship. We here at PH really want to thank her for sharing literally hundreds of resources with us. Thanks, Addison!

So, this is where we appeal to the Personality Hacker community. We have been doing Fridays @ Five for a little over a year now. You know the format. The kinds of things we like to share. Have you ever wanted to share something on Fridays @ Five? Here’s your chance! 

Send us your favorite resources with a short blurb explaining why you like them. We will select the resources that seem most in line with our mission and message, and we will credit you… if you want. Send your [email protected] ideas to [email protected] and put Fridays @ Five in the Subject Line. Include whatever personal information you want to share (name, type, country of residence). 

________________________________________________________________________________________

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.

 

1. I LOVE THE IDEA OF QUIRKY PREFAB MODULAR HOMES

With the growing cost of buying and maintaining a home, more and more people are turning away from traditional home ownership and seeking more affordable — and environmentally friendly — solutions. Ideas for tiny houses are many and varied. There’s even a program dedicated to it on DIY. The story of Kasita stood out because the CEO of Kasita lived in a 33 sq. ft. dumpster for a year to test the limits of habitable space. That’s devotion! He apparently learned a lot in that year, which helped him lauch a new category of housing—a beautiful, small footprint home designed as a solution for the growing housing crisis. To me, these homes equal freedom. –Joel, ENFP

 

2. THE BEATLES OWE A LARGE PORTION OF THEIR SUCCESS TO LSD

It will probably come as no surprise that The Beatles used psychedelics. I think we would be hard put to find any musician who hasn’t experimented with psychedelics. One thing I found extremely fascinating was that John and George had experimented so much with psychedelics they could no longer connect with Paul and Ringo on any level. Acid had changed John and George so much that, in order for the group to stay together through the 60s, Paul and Ringo had to start experimenting with LSD. According to George Harrison, “It was such a mammoth experience that it was unexplainable: it was something that had to be experienced, because you could spend the rest of your life trying to explain what it made you feel and think.”   –Roy, INTJ

 

3. HOW A SINGLE BLOG POST SHOOK UBER TO THE CORE

I came across this article on LinkedIn this morning. As a regular user of Uber, I was curious. As I read through the article, I came across an observation about halfway through that was really powerful: “Ensure your organization is transparent, or someone else will. In a world that is extremely interconnected, there are no more secrets. What happens at Uber does not have to stay in Uber, and what happens at your company will not stay there, either. To lead effectively, you must make sure you’re not just naming values, but living them. And if there are complaints, follow up—on every. Single. One.” I think those are wise words for any company or individual. Stay true to your values. Be as transparent as possible in relationships. I have been practicing this rule in the last year or so and I find my intimacy with people growing. When you fuck up, admit it. Then everyone can move on to bigger and better things. –Charis, INFJ

 

4. THE SECRET TO DESIRE IN LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIPS 

This TED Talk by Esther Perel is an oldie but a goodie. She talks about the crisis of desire that many people are experiencing being more of a crisis of imagination. Most people report feeling more desire for their partner when they spend time apart, because it is during that time that the imagination comes into play. “The Mystery is not about traveling to new places, it’s about looking with new eyes.” Another good point she brought up is that neediness kills passion. It’s biological, especially with women. A child is needy. So, if someone brings up a mothering instinct, a woman isn’t going to feel passion for that person. Check it out! She’s got lots of little gems. –Antonia, ENTP

 

5. NEW HEALING PROGRAM FROM PERSONALITY HACKER

Personality Hacker just released their first healing program for every type: The Healing Power Of Inner Parenting: The Four People Within. This program has been created by Merja Sumiloff who also created INFx Unveiled. What keeps someone from healing and moving into the self actualized space that we all crave? Is it our boundries? Our inability to let go? Our triggers? Where do we fit in the Drama Triangle and how did we get there? All these questions are addressed in The Healing Power Of Inner Parenting: The Four People Within.
