    The thing is, A.O., people who actually think outside the box usually don't use phrases like "Think outside the box!" It is a lie used by conventional thinkers. A lie in the sense that they don't want you to think outside the box, EVER, but it makes them feel smart to say it.
    I totally get this, I should be writing a paper right now. I think my teacher is an ESFJ so I try to write in more that direction and of course, I'm procrastinating and stumped

    This is funny! Same here.

    I think my ISTJ husband can't see the forest for the trees and I can't see the trees for the forest.

    I think most of the way our education system is set up hypnotises people to think within the box, all the while merrily encouraging kids to "think outside the box." Paradox.

    Gotta happen though. What would we do without our dutiful and steadfast middle class?

    I feel sorry for the poor box. I want to start a "Save the Box" campaign.

    why is it that the title of this thread makes me automatically think "can you think with a fox?"

    I can't think with a fox,
    but I can think of a fox,
    or box up a fox?
    The boxing fox doth mock!

    I have used word "box" since it seems to be the best one for this topic.

    I know that there is no box. It is just that some people find my way of thinking quite strange.
    I can focus on something if it must be done that way but what I need is that entire thing makes sense from the perspective of big picture.

    im completely the same way. i work at wegmans and they are doing this thing called "simplification". basically they are organizing everything in the back room (where i am 90% of the time). so they did the whole simplification thing... and everything the did made no sense at all. they basically got the blueprints to the backroom and said "lets organize and not actually walk into the backroom and check it out for ourselves" and basically without our opinion at all, organized. now everything runs horribly... but woo, its organized. look i love it when companies organize... by asking for our opinion, the people who actually are doing work. all this to say, i dont see the point in the organization and because it doesn't work (not to say that organization itself doesn't work) so i just ignore everything they say lol.
