“The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.” – Brandon Sanderson
I am quite thrilled to start my first blog and to hopefully connect with or at least help some people.
Who I am?
I am a female INTJ who sees the world quite differently than most. I do not feel connected to people and for the most part. I am happy that I do not have a ton of friends because I do not have to engage in shallow discussions and relationships. However, recently I have come across someone who has engaged with me on a deep level and even has gotten me to have long discussions with them. This got me thinking that perhaps I could find others to share my story and insights with, as well as learn from their lives too. I am a rare soul who feels deeply and has trouble processing those feelings through my logical rationality and I am always looking for the best outlet to release my thoughts and feelings.
What is this all about?
This blog will cover a variety of topics. I have begun writing down ideas for possible posts. However, primarily this will be a blog about those topics from the point of view of an INTJ female. I believe that it is important to have that as a lense for the various topics I will discuss. It is also important that you, as the reader, are aware of this so you know where I am coming from and can be informed as you begin this journey with you. I hope that I can open up a discussion with you and I would love it if you would send me an email. My email is email@example.com or follow me on Instagram @evi.l.holmes. Also, this is an easy way to access my blog and email because they are both connected to my Instagram. I am excited to be able to hear from you and hopefully write about topics that you are interested in.
Why a blog?
As I previously mentioned, this is not the only way that I am looking to connect with people. However, it is a good forum to generate interest and get a conversation going. I love writing and find that it is often one of the best ways for me to express myself and my thoughts. The blog is my own place to publish and I can segment my thoughts into posts. There are also comment features which I believe will prove to be beneficial.
Why the pseudonym?
A friend and I came up with the name because I very much appreciate sherlock holmes and we joke about me being evil, or at least I do. So I made a female name that went along with both those things. The reason for anonymity is so that I can stay private even though I may show people my thoughts. I also want people to enjoy my writing based on its merit and entertainment value and not who I am as a person.
Why Meyers Briggs? Specifically, why INTJ females?
This is a large part of who I am and it colors what I think and how I interact with people and the world. I have found it extremely beneficial to have media and people directed towards INTJ females specifically because it can be lonely being so different from other women and everyone else as well. Statistically, INTJ females are the rarest types so it is highly unlikely that I would meet another one or more in real life. That is why pages like this are so important. We all search for connection and understanding and I rarely feel that. So, if I can be that for someone else and connect with them in the process then that will be a wonderful thing. (We can also build a network of amazing women to take over the world but that is an aside. Back to the regularly scheduled program)
Along with the INTJ ideas I have for writing, I will hopefully also be writing poetry and short stories. I have an idea for a series of short stories that are connected but that is still very much in a developmental stage. But I am Very excited about that and I hope it works out.
I would always love to hear what you want to hear about. Please feel free to email me any questions, stories, themes, or ideas I will be grateful for your contributions. Feedback is always appreciated, especially as I am navigating this new territory.
