Fridays @ Five: Five Things We Loved this Week

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.

Here’s some great stuff to check out over the coming weekend…

 

1. JUNG PREFERENCE EXPLORATION PERSONALITY TEST

A member of our Facebook group, Intuitive Awakening, posted a link to this Myers-Briggs/cognitive functions test last week. It attempts to tell you your type, your “preferred” type, and the type you are most attracted to. The test is about 120 questions but it isn’t incredibly time-consuming. I highly recommend taking it if you’re curious!

 

 

2. BUZZFEED: THE REAL PERIL OF CROWDFUNDING HEALTHCARE

This editorial article from Buzzfeed discusses some of the strengths and downfalls of “mutual aid” crowd-funding. Mutual aid societies have existed as a pre-Internet form of sites like GoFundMe for centuries, but while it’s easier than ever to donate to causes one cares about, our personal biases (what causes we donate to, what we choose to look at as “worthy) affect who receives aid and who doesn’t.

 

 

3. SCISHOW: THE PSYCHOLOGY OF TROLLING

Antonia posted this video from Hank Green’s SciShow in Intuitive Awakening. Trolling can be an issue in online communities–and because the internet is fairly new, we don’t really have a clear idea as to why that happens.

 

 

 

4. 31 REMARKABLE PICTURES OF WOMEN WHO CHANGED THE WORLD

It’s Women’s History month! In celebration of their contribution to the development of civilization, here are some photos of pretty revolutionary individuals. (My favorite person on this list is Marie Curie.)

 

 

5. ALFRED HITCHCOCK ON DEAD BODIES

This video is an animation of a clip with Alfred Hitchcock from an interview taken in 1957. He discusses the necessity of horror in human life, and the necessity of relieving suspense when we expect it to happen. I find our collective penchant for experiencing “fake” horror really fascinating, and I really enjoyed hearing the perspective of someone who has mastered delivering that experience to an audience.

 

 

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.
