    Yeah, I only keep stuff that I think will be practical in the future. The thing is I really don't know for sure whether they will indeed be useful.

    I like space too. I wasn't thinking of the extreme cases of hoarding. I guess I just couldn't think of a better word for getting and storing things. Most of the stuff I keep do have values, not random stacks of papers or cans.

It just makes sense, as long as I have the space and the things don't expire. I don't have an emotional attachment to them per se, though I'd get pretty irritated if I had to throw everything out since it'd mean buying a lot of stuff to replace it when it was eventually needed!

    My parents are both hoarders (one of them could easily be on the show) so I didn't learn much about organizing or staying tidy/clean growing up. Still learning. But it gave me a great example of what will happen if I get lazy about it.
    My parents are hoarders too, to the point of qualifying for the show. I’ve noticed hoarding tendencies in myself (I’m both e5 and sp), but I think I’ve only noticed them because it’s been a point of contention for so long in my life. I’m not sure I actually hoard more than most people, I’m just more sensitive to the possibility. It’s a hard call to make sometimes: I really don’t like throwing something out if I might need it, and it seems like as long as I’m not tripping over it (or it’s not impairing my ability to function somehow) then it shouldn’t be a problem. Mostly, with me, it’s books and art supplies- and while it’s true that there are some I’ll never use again, I have no way of knowing which ones those are. I really do occasionally need some obscure kind of paint brush/paper/etc, or want to reference some kind of information in a book I didn’t think I’d need again, and it’s nice to already have the stuff around.

    Yeah, I can relate to this. I think some of my recent (past 8 yrs maybe) anti-hoarding tendencies, and desiring to not have any net accumulation of 'stuff' going forward (getting rid of things if I acquire new things), has a lot to do with the fact that my mom specifically has so much stuff that I don't want to be like her. She's just one of those types who is knick-knack/interior decoration queen - changing things season by season and also constantly getting new stuff - and has heaps and heaps of what I consider in the end to be rather useless stuff. But I think it's partly a generational thing and partly just her own taste for decorating, etc. (She's an sp-dom ISTJ, btw)

    Anyway. I do have maybe three boxes of 'useless' stuff of sentimental value - stuff from childhood that I don't exactly want to get rid of yet. Then I also have books and my own decorating flair/style, but it's much less cluttery than my mother. I'm not a gadget-head, though, and I tend not to buy many *things*. So I don't really plan on acquiring anything new without donating and getting rid of something else - like I said above, I have no interest in becoming a pack rat or having to deal with more and more stuff over time. I also tend to get rid of anything that hasn't been used or looked at for a couple of years - if I haven't used it in two years' time, it's very very unlikely I'll use it in the future (practical things like hammers/tools aside). A lot of stuff/clutter tends to annoy me these days. I'd rather simplify.

    I'm less of a hoarder than most people. If in doubt, throw it out. Though I do have my little collections...

    I am an ESTP "hoarder" in the sense that I keep anything useful and that is worth $10 or more stashed away until I need it again, or find someone who I can give it to later to help them out. I've done this with wallets (for some reason a favored Xmas present of like 7 of my relatives), the old CD cartridges for my trunk loaded 6 CD changer of my year 2000 BMW 530i (I had 3 cartridges) so I gave them at random a few years ago to a friend with the same car, and then last week I gave a friend of mine and his wife my spare leather BMW key holders as they both bought used 2003 and 2001 BMW 5 and 3 series.

    I am not a slob, I am actually very orderly, and know where everything is, evene what box and what Ziploc plastic bag it is in. And about twice per year I do a major clean up and make Goodwill very happy.

    I figure hoarding is more of the "poor man's" mentality or extreme sentimentality. (Did I just make up a word??)

    I'm a bit of both. But not extremely so. I can be quite sentimental and attached to items, like photos, art, cards, gifts, random nick knacks.

    But things like clothing and etc... I'll hold on to things for a period. I'll go through my items every once in a while to see what I might be able to take to the Goodwill or Salvation Army, and sometimes though I haven't touched an item in a while, I'll decide to hold on to it anyways--say like a dress or something I haven't worn in a very long time. However, a year later, I'll go through the same process again... and I'll still decide I might hold on to that dress. However, one more year, same process again, I'll finally decide it's time to part with the dress if I haven't touched it in that long, and decide someone else may get more use out of it than me.

    -----btw, I'm still unsure of my variant stackings.

    Conversely, I LOVE getting rid of stuff. I stupidly, impulsively throw things away, then regret it later. But at the time of the purging, wow, is it a great feeling. If it were up to me I would have the same amount of material possessions as a pioneer. I think a lot of this also has to do with the fact that I hate cleaning and taking care of stuff. It's so absurdly boring, mundane, and monotonous.
