    I was going to meet a friend at X the other day.
    I arrived at X on time, and after fifteen minutes of waiting I sent her a message:
    "Where are you? Late again..."

    The response was:
    "Give me a break, I'm a P."

    No, it's not an excuse.
    I'm P and extremely punctual, so no, it really isn't.

    I don't know where I read this, but rumor has it that you guys are such perfectionists that if something isn't perfect you just end up screwing yourself over by not turning it in. Better screwed than imperfect . . . or something like that.

    Not me. That'd be INFJ with Enneagram 1 or Strong Interest Inventory Conventional. I on the other hand am E 7 and SII SIA...saving me from such grief.

    tee-hee
    Thanks for the appreciation.
    I think the older INTJs care a little bit more than the younger ones.

    I remember I used to see stuff that said that people who write down their goals are more likely to achieve them, so I gave it a try. Now I realize that's just a correlation, and the people who are more likely to be goal-focused, are more likely to achieve their goals and more likely to write them down. Making goals just doesn't work too well for me because I'm not that goal directed.

    As a bigger fan of the Big Five I think of J as high conscientiousness, and I believe it's quite common for MBTI fans to incorporate the trait of low agreeableness (A) into J, when really it's a separate factor.

    J low in A = I don't want to change my plans, and my schedule for YOU!

    J high in A = Okay, I'll work your needs into my schedule.

    P types = Who needs a schedule?

    Agreeableness seems to match Keirsey/Berens' "Informing communications" (vs directing), while Conscientiousness would correspond to Keirsey's "Cooperativeness". For Sensors, Informing/directing is indicated by T/F, and Conscientiousness by J/P; but for iNtuitors, informing/directing is J/P, hence, "low Agreeableness" represented by J on that half of the types.

    FFM-MBTI correlations have probably not been done with Keirsey's new factors, so that's why the connection does not seem to be as well known.
