Friday is Five Minute Fridays  time
So I write for Five minute, no edits, no re dos and at the end I will see if there are pictures from this week that match the words of this week..
Topic: Crowd
Have you ever done one of those personality style quizzes? You know the ones that tell you, what you already know. They tell me I am an ENFJ
"Intuitive and Feeling types - they are cooperative, empathic and imaginative, focusing on empathy, morality and cooperation."

That test tells me crowds are my home-base.
And up until a few years ago I would say this test was spot on. I am an extrovert with a high focus on morality and empathy.
And in some ways I am still that person. I see the big picture over the details. I make decisions based on feelings.
But the crowds...
That is where this extrovert is having a hard time lately.
I have come to realize that I need the space.
The down time.
I need to carve out space to hear myself.
That is hard for an extrovert to even say, Alone Time. WHAT!
But it's true, I find myself refueling through the quiet.
So this weekend, I am taking a break from the crowds and hiding in for a bit to refill my cup.

Pin It


  1. I really like the way you wrote it centered, it created interest. And I know what you mean about "down time" I wish I had some of that this weekend - sigh.

  2. I'm so fascinated by personalities. My husband is one who gains energy from other people, and like you, he's now figuring out that "refueling through the quiet" is helpful. Loved your words

  3. Cassi, I feel so much the same. Last time I took that test was many years ago and I was an ENFP. I have always been comfortable around people though being confined in a huge crowd makes me nervous. I have discovered over the past 5 or so years though that I need quiet, I need time alone, time with God to refocus, to pay attention, and to refuel. Thanks for the reminder to shut it all off on occasion. I am going on 5 weeks of either travel to visit others or having company and I can literally feel myself anxious at this last wave of company coming tomorrow. I'm ready for some real quiet and alone time.
