Art journal your personality type
Introspection is the examination or observation of one’s own mental and emotional processes. When I found out the topic of this season was about introspection, my first thought was about personality type tests. I enjoy taking personality tests and evaluating how accurate they feel about me.
I think questions about my personality type would be an interesting place to start art journaling. In the photo above I used 6×8 page protectors to document my Myers-Briggs personality type, INTJ for my personal scrapbook.
