So I just wrote this post on my other blog. The post made me a bit in a dark mood, darker than usual. Then, I accidentally found the answer to my question (or should I say remedy?) about an hour after. Somebody’s up there must be paying attention so much because I had this kind of moment of posing a hard question in my head and having universe sending me the answer straight away a lot.
Or maybe I am that weird. I don’t know.
Anyway, here’s the summary, watch it if you’re interested. It’s worth it:
Vulnerability is the core of shame and fear, but also a birthplace of joy and connection 😀
Brené Brown studies human connection — our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. A talk to share.
An incredible storyteller indeed :D. A story: a research data with a soul. 😀
a toxin or other foreign substance that induces an immune response in the body, especially the production of antibodies.
Banyak hal bisa terjadi dalam setahun. Baru saja ‘lulus’ dari banyak hal yang gak ada ijazahnya, gak ada wisudanya, gak ada yang nonton dan ikut tepuk tangan juga. But I’ve never been this proud of myself before ^^
Puncaknya hari ini, I did something that I would never be brave enough to do it before.
Demam dan sakit-sakitnya sudah lewat, antibodinya sudah ada dan terbukti bekerja dengan baik.
Saatnya istirahat sejenak sebelum kembali melangkahkan kaki dan belajar lagi 😀
With an attention span limited to only around 8 seconds (less than goldfish, according to an article by The Telegraph), we could say that humans nowadays are everything but a listener. Our world has become so hectic and fast, the idea of sitting together to talk about our virtue and sorrow becomes so unattainable–almost magical. Things that could have been said in person is shifted to a mere phone call. Things that could have been told through a phone call is shifted to an exchange of e-mails. Things that could have been conveyed in written words is shifted to a shorter chat texts. And what could have been expressed today is shifted to tomorrow, next week, next month — most likely will end up as a forgotten plan.
Psychology is one of my favorite topics and I am (officially) addicted to every kind of psychological test. From MBTI, 4 temperaments, all through Kokology, I tried it all, and MBTI test (established by Myers Brigg – I believe she/he is the professor of psychology every psychology student knew about) is the one that I took the most.
There’s a reason for why I am willing to diligently answer all the oh-so-many MBTI questions, though. I took the test several times since I was a sophomore in college (that’s more than 10 years before now) and I found that my test results have varied through time. First, I was declared as an ENFP (the happy-go-lucky extroverts who talks too much — based on my self-assessment about myself). I could relate so much to this explanation of ENFP from Heidi Priebe :
