Living an (imperfect) INFJ life.
...and being perfectly fine with that.
Who am I?
Hi, I'm Leslie and I'm an INFJ. When I first read the profile for the INFJ personality type, I’m pretty sure my jaw dropped. There it was, all laid out on the screen in front of me. Not only the things I show the world, but also the things I’d never tell anyone. The comfort I felt in knowing there were others like me was like being snuggled under a warm blanket on a Friday night—my favorite place to be. You felt it when you read the profile, too, didn't you?
As much comfort as I got from reading the INFJ profile, I didn’t immediately achieve radical self-acceptance. It was, though, the start of my journey. And now, I want to help you move past those things you’re struggling with and that keep you stuck.
Some things about me...
- I love salted dark chocolate, specifically from Theo’s in Seattle. I’m pretty sure I’m addicted.
- I’m generally very much into healthy eating, but my (recently discovered) guilty pleasure is sour gummy bears from Sprouts (read about them in a Yelp review…ha!)
- I drink tea, not coffee. I don’t really have the patience to develop a taste for something. I’ve had probably 3 sips of coffee in my lifetime and each confirmed its disgusting taste.
- For someone who doesn’t drink coffee, I know a LOT about coffee because my husband is obsessed and roasts his own beans. He might be what you'd call a coffee snob.
- I drive a red, retro-styled Stella scooter with a red-polka-dot helmet.
- I’m a sucker for products in well-designed packaging, whether or not the product is superior to products in ugly packaging.
- I’ve lived in 5 states (Illinois, Tennessee, Montana, Washington, California) and I have 3 favorites. I also have trouble choosing one thing over another.
- My middle-school self wanted to be a teacher and a photographer—both of which I did!
- I’ve been told I’m quiet, but I don’t feel quiet at all. It must be that constant inner dialog.
- I’m not a morning person or a night owl. I’m a middle-of-the-day kind of girl.
