Who Am I?
Well I’m INFJ Mickey…obviously… I’m just playing. Usually when someone asks me who I am that’s all I’ll say. My name. But who I am as a person is completely different than just my name. I’ll be honest on the surface there isn’t much to look at. I like to think of myself like an iceburg. People only see the tip of it. Aka what I show them. I’m a calm, easy-going guy. It takes a lot to make me mad, and can be fun to hang out with. I actually like to think of my self as having 3-parts that make up who I am. In addition to those 3-parts I also have 4 layers. My 3-parts and 4 layers are the following:
My 3 Parts
- #1) Mind
- #2) Heart
- #3) Soul
My 4 Layers
- #1) My Public Layer (the layer I show everyone)
- #2) My Comfy Layer (the layer that I show to my outer friend group)
- #3) My Home Layer (the layer that I show to my inner friends and family)
- #4) My Core Layer (the layer that I show no one)
I can go into detail into my thoughts and reasoning behind both of these lists, but that’s for another story. But since some of you may know me and some of you might not I’ll go ahead and just explain my first Layer. Kinda like teaser for the bigger post…
So My outer layer is the part of me that I let everyone see. It’s like my first mask I wear. I’m very cautious of who I talk to, who I hang out with, ect. because I realize the people I hang out with will affect me greatly. My way of thinking and acting is affected by the people I hang out with. So I make sure I hang out with people that I feel like will help me grow as a person and won’t be a hinderance to me spiritually, physically, and mentally. So if I talk to you congratulations, you’ve moved passed my first layer. My first layer I’m very distant. I won’t talk to you. I’m quiet, shy, and I probably seem a bit awkward. But there’s a lot that lurks behind my quiet appearance. I’m in observation mode you could call it. I’m watching everyone around me sub-consciously making notes of every little thing they do and say. I’m trying to decide if they are someone that I can trust or someone I want to hang out with. So my first layer I will seem quiet, calm, and shy. I won’t show you any of my emotions, feelings, or thoughts. All you will see is a shell almost. It’s my self defense mechanism almost. It protects me from people who could potentially be harmful for me to associate with. I realize that it also could prevent me from some great friendships, and I’m working on it. But that’s what my first layer of me is like.
So in a nutshell if you saw me and you didn’t know me all you’d see is a quiet, shy dude. Like nothing out of the ordinary. If you looked at me you wouldn’t see anything strange or be wowed. I’m just an ordinary dude, yet at the same time very different. My appearance might not lead you to believe I’m unique or different and that’s true, it doesn’t. But what’s in my mind, heart, and soul makes me very unique. Which is part of why I’m doing this blog. To show ya’ll my uniqueness. Speaking of which, that leads to an important part about this section… My name!
I’m INFJ Mickey. So how did I get the name INFJ Mickey? Well I took the 16 Personality test, which I have linked on my other page What’s an INFJ, and found out my personality is an INFJ. I got really into reading about other INFJs and how they think and process stuff. It’s so cool to me. Which is part of why I wanted to do this blog. It allows me to compare myself to the INFJ description and see how closely I align up with it. It’s pretty mind blowing to me. But then the other half of my name… Pretty funny story, I hated it initially. Mickey. One of my friends started calling me it, and I was like seriously? (I was thinking they meant Mickey Mouse) Which for a guy being called Mickey Mouse, that ain’t to manly… But come to find out they were thinking about the song “Hey Mickey” by Toni Basil. (Which I’d never heard of) I thought the song was pretty cool though, and now realizing how they meant it decided to go along with it. I mean I have a theme song now, so why not? I honestly didn’t think it’d stick, but here we are. It’s stuck. So now most of my friends call me Mickey. So thought why not? In honor of my new nickname why not name a blog after it? So that’s how I got my name. I’m an INFJ who’s got a cool theme song.
Why Am I Blogging?
I have several reasons on why I’m doing this blog, but there are 3 specific ones that really are the main reasons I’ve created this blog. And without further ado, here they are:
Declutter My Brain
My brain gets cluttered…A LOT. I feel like my brain is always running at 90 mph. Like slow down for once. Geez! I’ve found unless I write out what I’m thinking, talk to, or text someone I will just bottle everything up. I’m not getting rid of stuff I’m just constantly pulling in new information and adding it to my growing pile of thoughts. So this blog, I’m hoping, will allow me to empty my head somewhat and get my thoughts out on digital ink. It’ll help me be less stressed because I’m actually processing information instead of letting it sit upstairs in the attic waiting till I can get to it just to move it around and not do anything with it.
Help Others Dealing With Similar Problems As Me
I don’t want this blog to be just about me. I want it to be as helpful for everyone else as it is for me. My goal is that this blog will allow anyone else who struggles with the same things as me to be encouraged and know that they are not alone. There are others that feel the same way as they do. I don’t want to just be an encouragement either. I hope to also give ya’ll some ‘Ah ha!’ moments. Even if it’s just something small that ya’ll never knew before, I hope by at least reading my blog you learn something new.
Have Some Fun
I also am making this blog to have some fun! Like writing can be a lot of fun, especially if your friends and family read it and you know they’re going to read it… (Hi mom!) But seriously not so seriously, I get to use this blog as a chance to try and make ya’ll laugh. There’s very few things I enjoy more than making other people laugh. Like it’s awesome. I may have a lot of serious stuff running through my brain, but I also have some crazy, hilarious, put your socks just to knock them off again kinda stuff. Like I make myself laugh it’s so funny!!
But those are the main reasons I started this blog. I hope ya’ll enjoy as much as I am! If ya’ll enjoy it as much as me feel free to let me know! Send me a message or an email. I’d love to hear from ya’ll!
