    I think what naturally occurs is just the type 7 way of reframing stuff to be enjoyable. It's appreciating all the lil details that we do have control over. The things we do like about it.
    I do the same thing.

I've also learned to anticipate and enjoy the feeling I get from finishing some mind-numbing, tedious task...an excuse to celebrate!

    Oh something else, I find it immensely helpful to have everything I need right there at my side. If I have to get up and fetch anything, it's really hard not to go flitting off in search of something more stimulating and before I know it, I've wasted a huge chunk of work time. Music is good but nothing too stimulating. The TV being on or having other people around is okay but again. The background stimulation helps keep me anchored but too much and I will abandon what I'm doing.

    I think it's funny how several of us have mentioned 'talk to others' breaks. I do this, too.
    lol, i know!

    As a type 5 I feel eminently qualified to tell you what I do as it will bear absolutey no relationship to what will work for you. I learn in 30min increments only. So once a day I sit down for my 30mins of intensive. Focused verynintensely for that period of time on the task at hand, then cheerfully put it away again for tomorrow. It's the bandaid ripping principle, short, sharp and to the point. No faffing around or making it worse than it needs to be.

    Oh yes...the bathroom would never be cleaned, meals left unprepared and clothes left in the dryer if not for this!

    You wanted to come fourteen years ago.
    I grew up.
    Don't worry, I'll soon fix that.

    I found this on this forum would love if you clicked it. (: Seems fun.

    Maybe 7s will integrate and be able to this... (Wishful thinking.)

The good thing about habits are they are addictive whether good or bad.
    I really agree with what @Riva is saying here. The only way I've been able to get a handle on such things is by using my Te to create good habits for myself. For example, I check my email (an onerous task for me) at two preordained times everyday. When I first instituted this routine, I felt overwhelmed. But after a couple of weeks the feeling of being overwhelmed subsided as it became a habit. Now I don't even think about it. I just do it twice a day every day.

    I think the reason this strategy works is that once an activity becomes ingrained as a habit, it becomes non-conscious and thus avoids all of my conscious angst that I - as a 7 - have about such tasks.

    My advice to @Rosie Drew and other 7s: Use your Te to make a weekly schedule for yourself in which you do all of your onerous, but necessary, chores like studying. Make sure you go to the trouble to actually write your schedule down. (This helps keep you accountable for following it, and also makes it easier for you to tweak it as you find out what works and what doesn't.) Stick to your schedule for a month. Then reevaluate and see if it's easier for you to get sh*t done that you need to do. It won't be easy at first, but just imagine how much more awesome your life will be if you can get a handle not avoiding onerous tasks!
