With hubby out of town, my son off at camp, and my younger daughter at work, I got to spend my Saturday morning with my oldest daughter.

It was a time together as it often is … she, a Psychology major, and myself, her Psychological guinea pig mom who lives (academically) vicariously through her. According to Myers Briggs we are personality twins, sporting INFJ (introverted, intuitive, feeling, judging). This personality similarity gives us connection, and due to it, there is nothing more normal for the two of us than to problem-solve life together.

And that is what we did this past Saturday morning.It was then, yesterday morning, that she shared a video with me, that I have chosen to share as my guest post today.

The following video (cleverly animated) features the voice of Dr. Brené Brown.

According to Wikipedia, Ms. Brown’s “… research focuses on authentic leadership and wholeheartedness in families, schools, and organizations. Her 2010 TED talk The Power of Vulnerability, is one of the twenty most watched TED talks, with over 15 million views (and I highly recommend it, as I am listening to it while I type)!

This video is short, sweet and it will help us, whatever Myers Briggs personality we are, to connect with others.

“What makes something better
is connection.”
Dr. Brené Brown
