The life of an ENFP

I have taken so many personality quizzes in my life but my favourite has always been the Myers-Briggs personality quiz.

You can take the quiz here. Or you can google it and find a more accurate one according to your taste. Your choice.

I have found the Myers-Briggs personality quiz to be the easiest to take and the results are quite accurate. Not only that, the results are understandable too.
Harder ones are sometimes too complicated but I love those too.

Anyhow, I am an ENFP.
In some ways, it's quite true. I am that way, in some sense.

But of course, I have to remember that the personality type result is not everything. I am more than just an ENFP. I am also a person. 
But having a personality type result do help to explain alot of things and make  you feel less alone at times. lol.

Anyhow, as an ENFP, we have a major problem at times.
We are both feeling and intuitive.
So that means, we are good at perceiving things and noticing little details of people. We like to pretend that we understand people or are learning to understand them.
We like looking for symbols and signs and finding the meaning in them.

But sometimes, there is no symbol or hidden meaning.
Sometimes, we are so eager to find symbols and interpret so hidden meanings.
And there is none.
And that is when we get it so wrong.

When ENFP gets it right, we get it right but when we get it wrong, we get it so wrong.

I been talking to someone lately.
And like usual, my ENFP senses kicked in. 
I started to look for symbols and everything. 
I started trying to discover hidden meanings.

And now, I don't even know if I have created these "hidden meanings" and put them in or if it's real.

This is where being an ENFP is tough because I clearly want to know the truth but at the same time, I am so afraid that it will create an awkwardness.

So yea.

Sighs.

Much Ado About Our Healthcare

During this week, something terrible but hilarious when you looked back, happened to me.

It was a normal Monday morning. It was close to the end of the month, so I was awaiting for my salary to come in. I was just trying to just hold on till the end of the month. Typical monday. Nothing eventful yet.

Then, it was lunchtime.
I went to lunch with my colleagues.
I ordered myself a lovely nasi kukus with ikan keli. That means steamed rice with catfish for those of you who don't read malay. 

One of my colleague often order this and it always looked good so I decided to give it a try.

Bad mistake.

I ended up having a fishbone stuck in my throat. When you think of it, it's pretty silly. But it scared the living daylights out of me at that moment. I tried swallowing rice to push the fishbone down but after half a bowl later, I found it to be not working.

I heard from my dad when I was younger that, if a fishbone get stuck in your throat, you had to do an operation. And that only fueled my fea…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Design Thinking and Steve Jobs

This is going to be a long post and I apologize. 

Anyway my department meeting yesterday talked about design thinking and it only reminded me of Steve Jobs.

I have always loved Apple and Steve Jobs. I know Steve Jobs wasn't the greatest guy ever. He could have been nicer and etc. But this is not about that. This is about his vision, his beliefs and philosophy. I never quite realised how much I believed in Steve Jobs philosophy until I sat down and thought about it. 

I admired Steve Jobs philosophy of design first. I don't know if he was the first guy who made design thinking into a thing. Or if he is the one who popularize that thinking?

Minimalism. Simplicity. Clean. Aesthetics. User friendly. He made sure Apple designs abide by this. And this is what I have always loved about Apple. He made technology sexy, beautiful and cool. 

I never quite realised that I, myself, believed in these values.

But today, as I sat down and think, I realised that, the older I grow, the more I have tu…
