    I don't think it's genetic at all. My parents are really energetic. Father is a ESTJ and my mother is a ESFP. Their energy levels are amazing for their ages. On the other hand I am a bit lazy. *Yawns.*

    Prove that 'In our genome lies disposition'. You write like an adolescent boy addicted to Nietzsche.

    ^ Such a very J perspective. It's funny, I've seen practically this same thing many times before. Ps always seem to view decisions as being consequential of circumstance, where Js view them more independently.
    You lose.

    True. Personal life is mostly choice of reaction to every circumstance.

    Not true. Willpower to do something may be independent from the intensity of the desire for it's results.

    Everyone procrastinates to some degree. Different types are prone to procrastinating on different things. Basically people are likely to procrastinate on activities calling on their nonpreferences- especially if they aren't confident in using them or cause them strain.

    I don't think there is a such thing as a procrastination gene. I do think there may be a heritary component to certain personality traits that could contribute to procrastination though. Like being prone to depression, for example. If you're depressed, you're probably less likely to be motivated and thus procrastinate more.

    What makes people procrastinate and to what degree is a complex interaction of personality traits and environmental influence. I think environment probably plays a greater role in who procrastinates the most. Are you surrounded by people who are self-motivated or those who are more lazy?

    I don't think its genetic. Its, what I call, 'inertia of comfort' - you don't want to change what you are doing because you are comfortable doing it

    I think I get you. Even though differences surely exist, correlating them to a disposition is the same as creating an excuse. But if it's considered inexcusable, that's an excuse to disallow others to make a choice. A bit of a conundrum, really.

    My parents are both STJs. My mom always has to be doing something and while my dad is not as high energy as my mom, he also likes to get things done according to plan and on schedule. I, on the other hand, am as lazy as you can possibly get and still have a pulse. I put off everything I can get away with.
    I think I was one of those kids you hear about, "switched at birth".
    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.
