    So, to be a J, you are going to need a stick.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    I would say so. Yet it would be preferable to make it a conductors baton. Also include a carrot at the end to bribe your P.

    Lits are just depressing for me as a P, essentially DON'T GO THERE.

    For stuff like essays, I find the procrastination hack (2 mins of play, and 10 of work alternatley, or like 10 mins:1hour) really helps.

    For other things, don't think, just GET UP AND GO. Or alternatively decide to do something else more appealing and change your mind half way through starting to do the other thing.

    I get that even fun things can be hard toget round to though...for that I have nothing to say other than you've just got to bite the bullet and find will power or possibly real life help.

    Bah, I'm a J and am procrastinating as we speak. (No worries though, I'm going to put my headphones on in a second and get really focussed for two hours.)

    My Jness has caused people to say that I'm stressed out and a bit of a stick in the mud. Not sure you want this.

    In any case, isn't the whole point that J/P determines whether you deal with the exterior world through determining what is and what isn't or intaking data? In that sense, it doesn't have to do with self-discipline.

    Self-discipline is learned and if you develop your Te then you'll have little more organisation in your life.

    I think it would be more about being realistic about what is important to you. If you decide, for example, that having fun with friends is more important than physically keeping in shape, why don't you decide to go out at and play sports with friends instead of focussing on failing at the gym because, in the end, it isn't all that important to you.

    I say, make room for what is important and get rid of the rest. It will give you more time and more focus.

I want to get a head start on projects and dreams... but it all stays in my head instead of blossoming into anything real. I'm sick of promising myself things that I ALWAYS end up dropping. How do I find my inner J? I am sick of being so messy and frazzled and aimless. I want to be driven and accomplished and reliable and... well... you know! J-ish!

    Teach me.
    Find out what really stresses you out and learn to live in it. Not saying that Js are stressed out, but the shadow of a P is a J, so if you can learn to live in your shadow you will be a J.

    Carrots worked for me, not sure what it was, but when I finish off a bag of those small carrots they would give me a huge sugar high.

    Since I realized I'll never become a J...

    I started to boost my improvisation abilities by role-playing. Helps a lot. Sometimes I wish for more structure in my life, but at other times I'm just thankful for the positive side of Perceiving.

    Having a nagging ESTJ husband helps, too.
