This month, we'd like to introduce Sara Atkins.
Sara lives in Berkeley and has been a member of BAAPT for one year. In her day job, she's a social worker for child protective services.
Sara has preferences for ISFJ.
Kailin is one of our newer members, and a wonderful addition to our chapter. Here she offers us the chance to get to know her a little better…
As a person with INFJ preferences, I love learning new knowledge and being inspired by provoking thoughts, especially those that help me understand more about people. I joined BAAPT in 2012 and found it a very enriching experience. Although I prefer self-learning in a more private form as an introvert, I love being able to talk about types with so many experts in one room. It feels like being part of an interest club in which we share a special hobby and language.
I spent most of my life in South America, so Spanish is my first language. Unfortunately, my last stop was Cuba; I went to high school there during the revolution. My teachers were Castro supporters, so when Fidel took over in 1959, I worked for him translating propaganda to send to the US. (They say if you are not a communist when you are young, you have no heart, but if you are still a communist when you are old, you have no brain).
