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 oneself and other personalities better. Join us www.facebook.com/groups/331433710348657/

Meet Horrible-Types Who Enjoy Playing 'Cards Against Humanity' (Host: Shawn)

We will be joining Shawn's group. Typically, 15-20 people show up. https://www.meetup.com/justnotalone/events/256566499/ Greet horrible old friends and meet new ones — Play 'Cards Against Humanity.' Better than Sunday church confession. ;) https://youtu.be/tZInNjvRjK4 "When I was tripping on acid, _____ turned into _____." "A cooler full of organs." "Free samples." Practice being horrible here: https://www.cardsagainsthumanity.com/lab/ Host: Shawn https://www.meetup.com/justnotalone/members/12244270/ "Ok folks, we've skipped a couple of months, but it's that time again- the third Sunday of the month- the day you all get to have a great time being horrible people with a rousing game of Cards Against Humanity. Because so many of you enjoy it, we decided it was best to give you recurring opportunities to be horrible. I'm sure we're doing a great service providing a safe outlet for these urges, especially after making you go a couple months without. We'll be playing at The Uncommons (http://www.uncommonsnyc.com), a tabletop gaming cafe. If by any chance Cards Against Humanity isn't your thing, they literally have a menu (http://www.uncommonsnyc.com/games/) of dozens of games for you to enjoy, along with more typical menus for things like food and drink. For the small fee of $7 plus tax, all of these things will be available to you for the entire evening (The games, not the food and drink). So come out and enjoy the guilty pleasure of being acceptably horrible with a card game, or play another game and sit in quiet judgment of the rest of us (both options have their appeal). Either way, join us for some fun games and good company this weekend." (Typically 10-20 show up.)

Bad people in positions of leadership [Host: Garrett, ENTJ]

First let’s come to consensus on what we consider to be “bad people” and “positions of leadership” - We’ll brainstorm the group’s concepts of both topics and try to come to a consensus on both. We have all seen and experienced toxic leadership. How do these leaders get into positions of power and stay there? What can we do to improve the quality of people in leadership positions?
