By now, pretty much everyone is familiar with the rosy, pastel shade of pink deemed “millennial.” It’s everywhere, from Instagram feeds to Pinterest pins. We get it — it’s simultaneously eye-catching and endearing. But by definition, trends are fleeting, and it’s time to welcome two new shades of popular colors into our design wheelhouses: Lilac and Gen-Z Yellow. Erika Woelfel, color expert for Behr Paint, predicts that these two new colors are poised to steal the spotlight in 2018.
My most embarrassing sleep habit is that I make weird noises when I’m in-between consciousness and sleep. It’s usually a “mmmmmmf” or a “unnnnnnh,” and I only know this because I wake myself up when I do it. Whatever your own weird sleep habit is, a new study about the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator might lend some insight as to why we do what we do. (Not familiar with Myers-Briggs? Take the test here.)
If you’ve ever taken the widely known and respected Myers-Briggs personality test, then you have this woman to thank for your enlightening results. If you’re unfamiliar with the test, here’s the lowdown. The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a personality test based on the ideas of philosopher and theorist Carl Jung. The test is meant to help people better understand themselves, their purpose, and their relationships with other people.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
