    love your podcast. and love your recent shift towards moving into action. and being a role model yourself, leaving your highly sophisticated world of types and starting to create sth new, your idea of a type based current, stream of live.And that includes enjoying the paradox that you tell people to listen to their own voice and not to other voices. or in a podcast tell people to stop listening to podcasts. which seem to have amused yourselves as well. but I definetly get your point, like the idea of evaluating each day by my own standards.
    I wouldn’t be an INFJ if this wasn’t reminding me of releated concepts, like – taking responsibility
    or of Hermann Hesse’s Siddharta, in which he moves through phases of mundane success, spiritual englightment only to end up as a ferry men. and this being a meaningful live.
    like a friend of mine who just performed her first self-written theatre play. Commercially a desaster, no fame, but great play. and her mission.
    Thank you so much for this podcast, I listened to around 50 of them – helped me appreciate more being an INFJ 🙂

    self-preservation individualization everybody focused in this way we would carry on forever. Society ideology tradition religion agriculture social media money culture anything on a huge scale and its bad news. We all need an objective that all humans are part of but they see them selves as an individual in the way of self-preservation with the ultimate goal of what are we doing what is our purpose as a species. Putin is trying to self-preserve is race from globalization. Why? I feel we have been tricked social animals jealousy greed they are all there but i do not believe in the way they are explained. I can not understand why i feel the need to leave a comment or why i leave a comment i don’t even have a phone.

    Hey Joel and Antonia! I’m a newer listener and I just want to say it’s always so refreshing to hear your take on certain topics. I really appreciate that you guys don’t change your opinions to fit the flow of culture. In this podcast, I found it particularly good to hear, as a teenager, that silence is good. It’s interesting because lots of adults will say things like “Aren’t you supposed to be on your phone?” in a joking kind of way, but it’s still like they’re legitimately confused to see a teenager not obsessed with their phone. It’s like they just find it easier to interact with a stereotype instead of the actual individual. With this whole idea of betting on yourself and radical self-responsibility, one of my takeaways is that I don’t need to wait for adults to recognize a teenager who’s not always on their phone exists. I can recognize that I don’t value spending lots of time on my phone, so I can give myself permission to spend less time on my phone. I know it’s not like teenagers are encouraged to be on their phones, but that’s the common expectation. And sometimes it’s hard to break out of limiting expectations other people have placed on you. All that to say, I really appreciate the content you guys create. Thanks!

      Wow Eliana. It’s awesome to hear from someone starting early on breaking other’s expectations. Please keep us posted along your journey.

    Two part comment:

    1) I think you can rely on yourself too much as well. I think I had a self reliance burnout a few years back where I pushed myself too hard. Now I’m more focused on understanding myself. Also, I think saving the world is as important as saving yourself, we can’t only rely on ourselves and we need external systems to persist in order to survive. Same thing with listening to yourself, I think you also need to be at least up to speed on things that are going on outside of yourself as well.

    2) I think this podcast is actually talking about typology concepts to an extent. I think the message of removing external stimuli and replacing it with internal stimuli is essentially suggesting that people rely less on extraverted perception and more on introverted perception. I think the “self reliance” message is essentially a pro introverted judgement message and that the “don’t try to save the world” message is a counter extraverted judgment message.

    All in all, I would say that this podcast had a bit of an introverted bias or slant with the messages of listen to (Pi) and better yourself (Ji) and that is hope both are important I personally don’t think they are any more important in general than betting on the environment and listening to your environment. Person to person, someone may need to focus on one more than the other though.

      Thanks Garrett for sharing your thoughts. I agree that each person is on their own journey and different advice can help all types depending on their circustances.
