Ne Doms/Auxiliaries

myersandbriggs:

These people will be VERY open to new ideas. They will want to try ALL possibilities, in an abstract way. They may have a harder time making a specific decision because there are multiple good options. These people will always want to have their mind mentally challenged with new perspectives. Most likely to have RADICAL and UNIQUE views (which makes sense because its the opposite function of Si, the realistic and traditional function). Ne doms will seem more excitable than their Ni counter parts. These will be people that will point out things and connections that most have never noticed. Ne will be about many ideas, and not necessarily following through, but will enjoy entertaining the thought.

Ne will always combine with Fi or Ti. So if you are an Ne dom you are Ne-Ti or Ne-Fi. If you are introverted and Ne, you are either Ti-Ne or Fi-Ne.

I don’t know what people expect Egyptians to be. I guess watching The 10 Commandments on ABC growing up got folks thinking they all looked like bronzed white people.

BREAKING NEWS: BLACK PEOPLE ARE BLACK. THIS IS AN AMAZING DISCOVERY. BLACK PEOPLE EXISTED BEFORE WE DISCOVERED THEM AND ENSLAVED THEM AND FUCKED UP THEIR LAND. WOW.

Africans in Africa? Mind blown.

This is pretty random, but I was looking up some recipe ideas and pulled out this cookbook I forget I own 99% of the time.
I recommend it to just about anyone, but especially if you’re not comfortable cooking in general.
It’s got super basic information about tools & how to prepare various common (US) foods & lots of stuff that people assume you know - but a lot of people never learn.
My mom (who DID teach all of her kids a lot of this stuff) found it & gifted it to everyone one holiday because there was even information she found really helpful (and that woman could cook).

if you’re thinking something nice about someone you should always say it

did anyone ever find out why daniel radcliffe was walking all those dogs

I think I read it was for a cameo or maybe bit part in a Judd Apatow flm

People always look for excuses. My favorite one is, “Well that’s easy for you because you have a really popular blog.” As if my really popular blog was something I won in the lottery. I had a really unpopular blog for three years in a row where 10 or 20 people were reading it. When I got started in the book business, I received 900 rejection letters. So you don’t look at the end result — at the Richard Bransons and Maria Popovas — and say, “Well they have that thing that I don’t.” They got that thing by showing up. I am really focused on helping people understand that not showing up is a failure of will more than it is a failure of birth.

Excerpt from an interview with Seth Godin in the 10th anniversary issue of the wonderful Australian creative culture magazine Dumbo Feather

As Tchaikovsky put it, “A self-respecting artist must not fold his hands on the pretext that he is not in the mood.” Or, per Isabel Allende, “Show up, show up, show up, and after a while the muse shows up, too.”

More on the role of showing up in creative work here

I’ve challenged myself to do at least 1 creative thing a day (music, writing, composing, art, something) because I’ve been missing that in my life. I started a journal to document it and keep myself accountable.

Nothing substantial may come of it, but I’m pretty sure something awesome might happen because of the focused effort, too. This was encouraging to read.
