SS #09: Finding the Right Scholé for Your Type
In today’s episode, Mystie and I explore the relationship between personality types and scholé. Mystie draws a distinction I had never thought about before — that some types of scholé are restorative, while others bring about more of a stretching and growing — and different types serve these purposes for different personality types. The bottom line is that if you are in need of some restoration, knowing your personality type and what restores it can be super helpful.
