    It's just as I thought all along.

    Because if you end up sick, crippled, or dead as a result of the erroneous belief that you are somehow above the laws of nature, you're no longer strong on any account.

    If you want to carry the metaphor all the way, I'd say that Ps have more raw strength, but Js have more endurance.

    I admire the strengths of strong J's. Though, being a P, I just want to corral a few to form Voltron.
    That is a good way to simplify it. There is a way to make plans that are flexible in some cases - or to have enough contingency plans to account for nearly every possible outcome. There is a way to bridge the two, I think. Two opposite processes to bridge the two which would perhaps suggest either a P or J initial orientation. One is elaboration by forming many contingency plans. The second is to boil the planning process down to its bare elements so it is easily reapplied in various contexts. This is often done by observing natural processes. Perhaps even these two processes can be combined to have a core of principles that can be reapplied joined with a preview of those scenarios and a sketchy reapplication in many contexts (interrelated contingency plans). Yay!

    I'm still doing the no sleep thing. I'm happy with it.

    Yup, people think I look like a youngin.

    Incidentally, we are stronger because maneuvering through our messes keeps us nibble.

    Well, Ps are fire, and Js are ice.

    Yes, ice is steadfast, it can stay around for a long time, especially if there's a lot of ice and a little fire. However, When the heat gets turned up, the Ps get more powerful, and the Js get less powerful. So in everyday situations, Js probably have the advantage assuming everything goes to plan. But turn the heat up, and Ps become more powerful.

    I thought it would be the opposite.

    Hmm... well, I suppose it could be the opposite if you define strength and endurance differently than I did. I'm not sure what the common definitions are.

    I assumed that strength measured how much a single "burst" or push could accomplish, and endurance measured how long you could sustain activity. And that you usually had one or the other, but not both.

    Basically, I thought that strength relied on doing everything in that initial burst, while endurance relied on being able to sustain activity longer.

    I know very little about this kind of thing, to be honest. I just looked them up on Wikipedia.
