Lately, as most women do when still on the “young and pretty” side of the Wall, I’ve started taking better care of my health.
One of the ways I’ve been doing that is Intermittent Fasting. Basically, I stop eating at a certain time (usually 6pm) and don’t eat again until later the next day, ideally after 16 hours or so.
(Which incidentally is how I stayed fighting fit while in law—except then, I was just too busy to eat.)
Like with all things new and shiny, I wanted to know everything there is to know about Intermittent Fasting, joining all the online communities, and reading all I can about the magical and transformative properties of IF. And, since I was now a dedicated faster, I also bought the necessary app to keep track of my progress.
Naturally, I wanted to share all this new! exciting! information about intermittent fasting with my INTJ:
“Do you want to see my app? I just got one that tracks when you started fasting and when it’s safe to stop.”
“I already have one—it’s called a clock.”
See, he already had been intermittent fasting off and on for over ten years.
And, in those ten years, didn’t see any need to complicate it any more than need be: you eat until a certain time, and then you stop. Rinse, repeat.
(Which is no different than his plain-text philosophy for email and marketing in general.)
But, being my personality type, I thought I needed the ClickFunnels of IF to succeed.
Truth is, I don’t.
And the same goes for all the bells and whistles of “market research” like complicated, redundant surveys, “human performance hacking” like Fascinate or “self-mastery” like (ugh) Human Design.
All you need is a few questions, that so happened to be backed by nearly 100-year old science, and a little bit of patience.
And, maybe a subscription to Biz Typology.
