26. How Myers-Briggs Saved My Marriage (with Meg Tietz)
Powered by RedCircle
Guess what? I have some big news about a change for the podcast! Jesse is officially my new co-host on The Crystal Paine Show!
I’ve gotten such great feedback every time he’s been on the show and we have had so much fun recording together, so I’m excited to have him joining me on every episode!
Today’s guest is Meg Tietz is the host of the beloved Sorta Awesome podcast. Meg is really passionate about the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and I’m thrilled she agreed to come on the show and share her wisdom on this topic.
Whether you’re a personality type junkie or have no idea what the letters in ENFP or INTJ mean, you’ll definitely come away from this episode with some valuable insights on how understanding our personalities and the personalities of those closest to us can change our relationships and our outlook on look.
In This Episode:
[01:51] – Jesse chats about the trip that he just got back from, and I explain that the house actually didn’t fall apart while he was gone (unlike some of the past trips he’s taken!).
[04:30] – I took off a little over 24 hours after Jesse got back for a sisters’ trip to New York City.
[06:06] – We chat about an app I recently discovered that is fascinating us and sort of saving both of our lives.
