Dreams Around The World with Dan Johnston

You've only got one life, so why not design it around your own personality, dreams, and desires? I’m Dan Johnston and I do my best to help you become the best version of yourself all while creating an awesome life for you and those you love. Personally, I value freedom and experiences over money and things and even if the seas are a bit rougher, I’d rather be the Captain of my own ship.​ I, and the occasional guest, cover a range of topics from psychology and MBTI personality types (you know, that whole ENFP, INFP, INFJ, INTJ thing) to freelancing and entrepreneurship. Since I am location independent (a Canadian currently living in Prague), I also talk about travel and being a digital nomad from time to time.

"I don't want to be controlled!" As an ENFP, I'm sure you've had this thought countless times...but what if you actually created your own prison?

This episode details my recent ENFP and INTJ partnership experience in Ukraine where I had some major insights on how ENFPs function as leaders.

Whether in a business partnership or relationship context, when ENFPs are under stress, feeling overwhelmed and out of control, chances are there was a failure in our ENFP communication skills.

ENFPs are usually conflict-avoidant. We keep things inside, A LOT is happening in our ENFP intuition and we are not expressing ourselves out loud. But...as ENFP leaders, we will have to learn to step up and lead the way - or shut up!

For our ENFP relationships and businesses to thrive, we have to express ourselves, be fair to the other person and not expect them to read into our complex ENFP brain. :)

You might have caught the episode on our ENFP Dark Side and what happens when us ENFPs are under extreme stress...Well, my ENFP Dark Side returned! 

In this episode I want to share a story about my recent experience when my ENFP shadow side crawled back under extreme feelings of dread and stress.

If you've ever felt like you're not being your true ENFP self, you're feeling paranoid and blaming other people, and well - you're just out of place...

Listen up for my personal advice on what to do if your ENFP Dark Side (re)emerges.

I've received a question from a fellow ENFP, Judy, a Syrian living in the Netherlands for the past 3 years.

She says she picked up the language pretty quickly and started her Bachelor's degree this year, which was great, but there is a problem:

"Everywhere I go, I find myself feeling like an outsider.

It's such a shame that I barely interact or hang out with my classmates or roommates unless I'm drunk because I'm insecure about my Dutch and it makes me appear as less friendly, but silent and distant.

Which is, of course, a nightmare for an ENFP.

Aside from that, I can't relate or be engaged with most subjects that are brought up in a typical conversation and the Dutch are really distant people and difficult to approach unless they're drunk.

So I truly miss the Syrian spontaneity in everything. When I use English, though, I am way more open, can have fun conversations easily and express myself way better and just be myself.

The only problem is it is really awkward to start speaking English out of nowhere with everyone and it is not very beneficial for learning Dutch.

So do you have a tip for me to be myself, communicate better with native speakers, and use a new language?"
