New Years Resolutions and Myers-Briggs Types

My son sent us a text message of this Awkward Yeti comic  about New Year’s resolutions. He is a total ENFP on the Myers Briggs Temperament, so I think he was letting us know how he was feeling about the coming year.

    I’m and ENFP!!! I so agree with your son–and that cartoon is me! My theory? We waste a lot of valuable time planning when we can begin moving and tweak on the way. You’re so right, Steverino–who we are deeply affects how we think about next steps. Or next year.

      Haha! He also has Woo, Communication and Ideation! We missed him this Christmas as he is a party waiting to happen. I am close but am INFP. I thought that cartoon was hilarious that he sent. He has self-awareness also 🙂
