Catatan 2013

2013 has been a hell of a year for me! It was far faaaar beyond my imagination.
  1. Keputusan besar di tengah tahun yang sempat menimbulkan drama dengan plot turun naik. Maaf dan terima kasih untuk orang-orang di sekeliling saya yang terkena dampaknya.
  2. Pertemuan dengan seseorang yang mengagumkan. Iya, dia mengagumkan. They say, don’t rely your happiness on someone else. I don’t. I rely my happiness on my other-half and it’s that person.
  3. Perjalanan ke beberapa destinasi. Sangat memorable, saya menaruh berbagai arti di setiap destinasi itu.
  4. Tawa dan tangis bersama salah seorang sahabat saya yang juga punya pergumulan berat. Sampai akhirnya dia mengambil keputusan itu, I shed my happiness tears. She is my angel.
  5. Berdiri di 2 panggung besar menjadi pembicara di bidang pekerjaan sekaligus passion saya, memberi saya mimpi baru.
Tidak ada jaminan tahun depan akan lebih menyenangkan atau menyusahkan, sangat mungkin jadi lebih menyeramkan, tapi ada jaminan siapa yang akan menyertai saya selalu. Dia yang selalu menyertai dan mengijinkan semuanya terjadi.

Whom Shall I Fear?

In many times I cry when I fear, when my heart is full of worry.
I easily get nervous of what will happen.
And sometimes it scares me half to death to think I almost lost a thing/ a person/ a hope of mine. :(

But then I remember,
I am the daughter of the King who separated the red ocean into two halves, who walked on water, who closed the mouth of hungry lion for David, and calmed the storm.
Then, whom shall I fear? If HE is always with me.

My Personality Result: ISFP (December 2013)

Introverted (I) 
Reserved, listen carefully, prefer solitary activities, more comfortable when alone than when around other people, get exhausted by social interaction
Sensing (S) 
Observant, rely on their senses, absorbed in practical matters, focus on what has happened
Feeling (F) 
Sensitive, follow their hearts, keep feelings close to the surface, focus on harmony and cooperation
Prospecting (P) 
Probing, prefer keeping their options open, reluctant to commit, relaxed about their work, seek freedom

ISFP personalities are generally seen as the most spontaneous and unpredictable of all introverted types. Only one thing is constant in their lives and that is change – ISFPs love exploring and embracing new things, ideas and activities. They are very good at sensing such opportunities, but the ISFP personality traits also push them towards experimenting and coming up with ideas that no one has thought of before. ISFPs usually find it easy to set new trends and inspire other people – their penchant for experimentation is unmatched by any other personality type.

This personality trait is connected with ISFPs’ love of freedom – ISFPs are very independent and fiercely resist all forms of control. People with this personality type are the ultimate “free souls”, seeing nearly all rules, guidelines and traditions as self-imposed limitations that make life dull and boring. ISFPs live completely in the present, refusing to dwell on the past or prepare extensive plans for the future – they take things as they come, experimenting and adapting their behavior as necessary.

While certain personality types (especially those belonging to the SJ subgroup) would discard such notions as irresponsible and reckless, ISFPs actually do great in areas that require an artistic, independent approach. ISFP personalities also tend to be very charming, mostly because they find it really easy to pick the best compliment for a particular person – ISFPs’ sensitivity (F) and great control of all five senses (S) mean that they are very much in tune with the physical, sensual world. Consequently, ISFPs rarely have difficulties connecting with other people, despite the fact that they are introverts (I). Even when the ISFP is being truly unpredictable or even reckless, their charm easily disarms those around them.

That being said, ISFPs also need time to withdraw from social interaction and let their mind rest. This personality trait can often surprise other people who may have believed that ISFPs’ spontaneity and enthusiasm meant that they would always desire to be “in the open”. However, at the end of the day, ISFPs are still introverts and their inner batteries need some time to recharge. This contributes to the air of unpredictability and mystery that usually surrounds ISFPs – if someone with this personality type has a very strong I trait, even their closest friends may have difficulties anticipating ISFP’s thoughts and reactions.

ISFP personalities also tend to be very sensitive to other people’s feelings – they are inclined to seek harmony in all situations and have no difficulties sensing a change in someone’s emotional state. On the other hand, ISFPs can also be incredibly competitive and react very badly to any form of criticism. That competitive nature often pushes ISFPs towards risky activities such as gambling or extreme sports – and they also tend to do quite well in those fields, mostly because they are so in touch with the physical environment.

ISFPs often find it very difficult to follow a structured process and consequently may do quite poorly at school. However, their spontaneity and other personality traits make ISFPs very artistic and give them a great sense of aesthetics – people with this type may fall behind in the academic environment, but they can truly shine in the field that utilizes their talents while also giving the ISFP a sufficient degree of freedom.

Finally, it is worth mentioning that ISFP personalities are very goal-driven, and shape their internal principles and rules around those goals. This liberates ISFPs from social expectations and constraints, for better or for worse. If the ISFP’s goal is good and noble, they can be very selfless, amazingly charitable and inspiring; however, if the ISFP decides to pursue a selfish goal, they can become very ego-centric and even conniving, doing everything they can to achieve that goal. People with this personality type should be aware of these tendencies and question their own motives and reasoning from time to time.
