How to unpack your personality type for a happier you and a happier vacation? It begins before you start a paralyzing Google search on where to stay, play, and go.
Stop, all the Googling, and take time, right now to set travel intentions.
Here’s what I know. I’ve spoken to hundreds of travelers who were never truly satisfied with their vacations. I asked a ton of questions and finally realized the majority of travelers don’t know themselves. You can’t plan an enjoyable trip for yourself when you don’t know who you are.

Two Million People A Year Take a Myers-Briggs® Personality Test
According to BBC News, over 2 million people take a Myers-Briggs® personality test annually. Yet many haven’t discovered how their sacred personality influences their lives and vacations. I’ve developed a quick and easy personality look-see to help you travel intentionally. The idea here is to travel mindfully – from the inside out. This style of travel is about self-observations, allowing you to focus on aspects of your personality type to become more consciously aware of yourself. If you observe yourself engaged in an ugly behavior and don’t want to be or act this way, you now have an opportunity to change it. Take time to reflect on your actions. Examine your behaviors and question where they stem from. You’ll be surprised to know it’s often a long-held fear that no longer serves you.
