So, you’re the queen of writing posts and tweets that say things that some people love and some people think are crazy or offensive. I’m on the love side, of course.

I’m an INFJ, which means I’m a good writer, I’m (deep down) very sensitive, and I’m very judgmental (I always have opinions). After two and a half years of not being able to find a job, freelance, or start a business without getting pissed off by the people I’ve met, the severe disappointment has caused me to become a bit loopy. All of a sudden I want to start a blog (or something that has to do with writing) where I get to say whatever I want about personal acquaintances, bloggers I read, celebrities, whatever, no matter how offensive people might think my opinions are. Is this something I should embrace (a gift from the marketing gods) or is this blog idea a bad idea?

    I think the blog would be a waste of your time.

    It would not be helping you to be a better person or solve any of your problems with interpersonal relationships. And if you’re not doing that for yourself, you’re not doing that for anyone else. So why would they read? No one is a good enough blogger that they can write without having at the top of their mind the question: How does this help my readers?

    I wonder if this person is really an INFJ because I am an INFJ as well – and our tendency to be judgmental comes from wanting to understand people’s (emotional) motives. And from that, we always want to “figure out” people so we can better understand how to deal with them. I don’t think an INFJ would get anything out of tell-all blog because it would be just blabbering without any true purpose, as Penelope already mentioned.
    Saying whatever you want about other people (no matter how offensive) is not a a gift. It’s attitude that comes from tactlessness and lack of sensitivity, which directly clashes with an INFJ’s natural sensibilities.
    Also, I was unemployed for 2 years and got fired – a lot- and I did think I was going loopy as well. However, my blog was a space that helped me figure out more about myself. It is an amazing journey.
