No, I generally free myself from obligations quite quickly so that I have nothing to do. Besides from that I am pretty good at self-organisation thats why I often thought I am a J in the past. People in the past often has put me in charge to manage things, cause I am quite easy going and still care a lot that things get done.
My boss at work tho and my boss at home, as in gf, forced me to make a to-do list, so they can keep track of what I am planning. That was quite evil of them.

No, I do make shopping lists sometimes because if I dont I wont ever get the everything I needed from the store. Now I dont remember the list half the time, then the other 75% of the time I dont write down a list so maybe 12.5% of the time I have a list though that number seems high. I can make 3 trips to walmart in a day My memory is half-baked and shot.
Take what I say with a grain of salt, because that's all it is compared to the ocean of complexity when it comes to actions and real life.
Most say I'm an INTP... So I do make lists. But my lists generally contain the things I gotta do when working on a project, ideas that I get while working or while doing something else to work on them when I'll be working on the project. I pick things out from the list, things that I feel like doing at that moment. The reason behind that may be either because the other things are more boring or because it makes sense to do it afterwards.
I tend to not forget appointments, but even though, I do write them down somewhere though. But in the end, I just throw the paper away before going out without even looking at it.
Since so far the projects were all mine, I did complete all the "ideas" from the lists that I've made. Some were scratched due to a better idea, but none were left out.
If I'm going to do something in real life besides a project, I don't make lists, I only think it through in my head. Assuming my brain does work that day (food, sleep, etc.), I don't forget what I thought of doing (asking, saying, etc.).

I find it boring to think about stuff like "I need to buy that and that and that, oh and that!" I usually think about more important stuff when shopping (or moving in general, like going to the store). Earplugs in, I hate the supermarket music and ads... So yes, I do make shopping lists - plan it at home, write it down, plan my route when entering and while walking down the store to be the most efficient route possible (). If I was rich, I wouldn't do shopping myself. It's tedious.
