I’m a scanner

Hi, all! I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve contributed something to my blog. I wanted to write something today. As you know I’m a creative person. I love anything having to do with the arts (obviously….) But anywho I’m one of those people who’s never satisfied with doing one thing and sticking with it. I have so many things that I want to learn and do! I mean the world is so big and you’ll never learn everything that the world has to offer, but I always get excited about the possibilities. Like right now there are so many instruments that I would love to have and learn to play. Right now I want to learn how to play the guitar and the violin. I also want to get back into the tenor sax. I played that for 8th grade jazz band and haven’t played it since but I would love to pick that back up. I already have a clarinet but honestly I would love to get a newer one. The one I have I’ve had it since the 6th grade, so it’s time for an upgrade but not just instruments…I would love to learn photography but quickly realized that photography equipment can be expensive but someday I will get that equipment. I downloaded a bunch of photography books on my Kindle. I think I just get excited about new ways to express myself. Art is such a wonderful way to express myself. I already do that with writing, but I want to broaden my scope and dabble in so much more. Interestingly, though, they actually have a name for people like me. It’s called being a scanner, and it’s an interesting concept. Below I’ve attached an article that explains it in more detail.

Artistic expression

I’m what some people might call a scanner and I’m also an INFP based off of my Myers-Briggs personality test. A scanner essentially is someone that’s always finding new hobbies to get involved in and usually can’t stick to one thing. That’s me! And INFPs are usually drawn to craetivity. I feel like I’m always looking for artistic ways to express myself. I mean art really holds a special place in my heart and I tend to move from one thing to another. Some may find that inconsistent or a bad habit because I never finish anything I start, and I admit sometimes I even feel bad for this personality trait but you know what? I shouldn’t. It just means I’m willing to try new things and I get easily excited and want to try EVERYTHING! Recently, I’ve been wanting to teach myself how to play the guitar. I also want to get into photography and making jewelry. I feel like I’m always looking for new artistic ways to express myself, to explore all of my potential. Who knows? I might turn out to be an amazing photographer. It’s just something that I’ve never tried. The only reason I haven’t started with some of these hobbies is because of a lack of funds. I’ve found that photography can be quite expensive and I also have to buy a guitar, so once I get my funds that’ll be something new for me to do. I’m really excited! Art is the beauty of life.
