Group History:  This group started out with a focus on INFP's only, but that was rather narrow, and the meetups were found to be ultimately more rewarding if any and all of the 16 types could interact.
These meetups are intended to be non-structured, informal and allow for maximum interaction between members. However, those who wish and feel qualified to give a presentation on a relevant topic, are welcome to schedule it in advance by contacting the organizer. Members frequently talk about subjects besides MBTI. The main topic of this Meetup serves more as a starting point for discussion rather than as an end in itself. People are free to mingle and talk with whomever they find interesting. All personality types are equally welcome. This is the place to be if you'd like to socialize with people who wish to understand themselves and other personalities better.  Join us www.facebook.com/groups/331433710348657/

FTI: How to feel high self worth you deserve [Host: Garrett, ENTJ]

Needs a location

This event is brought to you by the Free Thinker Institute (FTI), a not-for-profit looking to support and empower personal development for its members - and for everyone interested. We organize weekly events to discuss ways to transform wisdom into practical applications that benefit our lives, covering topics widely ranging from professional subjects to spiritual ones. This week our founder, Garrett Lang, presents his ideas on self worth looking to empower growth for attendees.

Format: 30 min lecture followed by a group discussion

Self worth is an area so many people struggle with – Some have a self worth that’s too low, which often leads to mental health problems including anxiety and depression. Others have a self worth that’s too high for the wrong reasons, causing them to step on other people and not be open to new ideas. I will present how people generally measure self worth today, and present a new model for measuring self worth which I believe is healthier and easier to achieve high self worth. It will also help you be a better person.

Garrett Lang

Thank an essential worker worker by getting vaccinated and/or by donating blood if you are able to donate safely at a center near you.

Protect the very young & the very old, and slow the growth of variants. Walk-in vaccinations are available. https://vaccinefinder.nyc.gov/ Hotline: (833)[masked]

George W Bush: (00:06)
This is a challenging and solemn time in the life of our nation and world. A remorseless invisible enemy threatens the elderly and vulnerable among us, a disease that can quickly take breath and life. Medical professionals are risking their own health for the health of others, and we’re deeply grateful. Officials at every level are setting out the requirements of public health that protect us all, and we all need to do our part.

The disease also threatens broader damage, harm to our sense of safety, security and community. The larger challenge we share is to confront an outbreak of fear and loneliness, and it is frustrating that many of the normal tools of compassion, a hug, a touch, can bring the opposite of the good we intend. In this case, we serve our neighbor by separating from them. We cannot allow physical separation to become emotional isolation. This requires us to be not only compassionate, but creative in our outreach, and people across the nation are using the tools of technology in the cause of solidarity.

In this type of testing we need to remember a few things. First, let us remember we have faced times of testing before. Following 9-11 I saw a great nation rise as one to honor the brave, to grieve with the grieving and to embrace unavoidable new duties, and I have no doubt, none at all, that this spirit of service and sacrifice is alive and well in America. Second, let us remember that empathy and simple kindness are essential powerful tools of national recovery. Even at an appropriate social distance, we can find ways to be present in the lives of others, to ease their anxiety and share their burdens. Third, let’s remember that the suffering we experience as a nation does not fall evenly. In the days to come it will be especially important to care in practical ways for the elderly, the ill and the unemployed. Finally, let us remember how small our differences are in the face of this shared threat. In the final analysis, we are not partisan combatants, we are human beings, equally vulnerable and equally wonderful in the sight of God. We rise or fall together and we are determined to rise. God bless you all.


"The need for blood is ongoing, but COVID-19 has destroyed the foundation on which the community donates blood to patients served by New York Blood Center.

Every week, more than 75,000 blood donations and 1,700 donated platelet units are needed to meet patient need. To ensure we are prepared to support health agencies in our communities and across the country, NYBCe strongly urges individuals who feel healthy and well to make an appointment at a donor center or find a new community blood drive.


" Regardless of vaccination status, ALL donors MUST wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose
Must be 14 days symptom free if recovered from COVID-19
May NOT donate if they have a positive diagnostic test or experienced symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 14 days
May not donate if they have been told to self-quarantine due to exposure risk, including travel. We follow current State and CDC travel recommendations.
CDC - Travel (cdc.gov)
COVID-19 Travel Advisory | Department of Health (ny.gov)

If you are unsure whether to donate, or if you have donated recently and you develop symptoms of COVID-19 or you test positive for COVID-19, please contact us at[masked]." https://nybc.org/donate-blood/covid-19-and-blood-donation-copy/
