The MBTI assessment is a four-letter code for what personality type each individual possesses. There are 16 different personalities, but each individual has one that is special to them. They are filled with both strengths and weaknesses, and can be useful in many ways. Let’s explore mine.
The four letters that I got on my MBTI assessment were INTP. I stands for introvert, N stands for intuitive, T stands for thinking, and P stands for perceiving. Of all my letters, the I and the T were the least surprising to me. I scored 92% for my level of introversion, and 66% thinking.

This led to me being told all my life to suck it up, move on, and not let my feelings show. Ultimately, this led me to forgo emotions entirely. I never learned that it was ok to have emotions, much less express them. So the concept of a loving God who wants to know the ins and outs of my inner emotional world is a little difficult for my to accept as truth. Like Mulholland says in his book, my neglected emotions sometimes have a tendency to sneak up on me. Sometimes I find myself getting upset but not even knowing why, or random events trigger past emotions that I have refused to deal with. This is problematic, and needs to be
