Dark Side.

I identify myself as an ENFP.

For those who don't what that is, it's from a personality type from a personality quiz by Myers Brigg. 
It helps to understand who you are as a person
And this was something I did when I was younger and I identified with this type because finally, there was an explanation on why I was so emotional or crazy.

You can take the quiz here

Although being an ENFP is a great thing, it can also be tiring because we are exceptionally emotional people. 

But I wanted to talk about is the dark side of the ENFP.
The edge. 

Although ENFP are generally warm and bubbly people, they are not always the nicest.

Thing is, generally, ENFP are nice because they have good and strong values.

But sometimes, once in a while, a corrupted ENFP exists.

And honestly, I think a corrupted ENFP is dangerous.

A corrupted ENFP would definitely be more prone to addictions such as alcoholism, drugs and etc. 
A corrupted ENFP might definitely enjoy living on the edge because it gives them a certain high.

As much as an ENFP is dangerous to others, they are also dangerous to themselves. A corrupted ENFP has a self destruct button and when they burn, they light up so brightly but it's bad because at the end of it, there will be nothing but rubble.

A corrupted ENFP also is compromised because they can be manipulated easily as their intentions are not that complicated and they have a blindspot if they aren't careful.

But most of all, an ENFP is especially dangerous to others because being a people person, they are able to understand people quickly and bond with them. Then, they can manipulate them to how they want. 
And since an ENFP understands people well, if they want to hurt you, they can hurt you bad because they will hit you where you are the most weakest and they'll stay there.

ENFP are dangerous creatures if they have gone wrong.

I think it's just food for thought how ENFP, one of the most bubbly and kind type can also have a dark underlining if they have gone bad.

It's like two sides of a coin.

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…

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…

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…
