    I really don't think that crumbling when your plans don't follow through thing is a characteristic of J's. Maybe some J's, but I wouldn't say it's true for J's in general.

    As you probably already know I disagree. Which is because I don't believe in idea of defeat. However I am strong J (and N).

    Towards my life philosophy there is a very small number of situations you can actaully call defeat. First, if you fail at something in most cases you can simply try again.


    The other reason is that this reality comes down to action/reaction priciple.
    Which mean that if you fail at something your progress will be slowed down but that also means you got new options which were not available before and they would not have become in the case you have succeded.
    This does not happen always but it happens often.


    I will be scientist one day and one of the most interesting ideas I have encountered in my life is Chaos theory. For people who don't know what that theory says I try explain it to them.



    The the main consequences of this theory is that things in this reality are so complicated that it hard to put it in words. They are so complicated that just saying they are complicated you are giving the wrong picture since there are general rules as well.

    Imagine this I am watching a fridge in the store in which there is one coke and one package od orange juice. Which one will I buy if I have money just for one of them ?


    Lets say I will take the orange juice instead of coke.
    But what are the consequences of that ?
    The consequences are that they guy after me can choose only coke unless they refill that fridge. The package of orange juice is much larger what means that it will be enough to kill my need for liquid a couple of times instead of once.

    But if I drink too much juice I will have to go the toilet sooner what means that I can miss the call from some guy (or girl) which wanted to hang out tonight. But when I get the chance to call them back they will already call someone else. What means that you have lost a good evening just because you have taken the juice. While coke while would not have the volume needed to force you to go to the closest toilet.
    Plus you can only speculate what will happen to a guy that will take the coke. Especially since he will just take the coke which is because he is not facing dilemma coke/juice. Which means he will make a choice alot faster then in the case you didn't bought that juice. Since he will exit from the store sooner and he will be sonner hit the road. Which means that at a certain street light he will now be 3 in the row instead of 1 and in the another group of cars. So the lady that "should" have been third is now fourth in the line. What means that her position on some other street light will be different as wll. What will effect drivers around her.


    Not to mention that you can be sure he will buy that coke. Maybe he will leave it to someone else.



    This is very simplificied example of chaos theory. But if you carefuly look around you will see that everything around you functions on this way.
    So every time you make a choice you make a choice that changes the lifes of everybody on the planet and lifes of everyone that haven't been born jet. Which is because every choice causes the redistribution of everything on this world. Simply because of action-reaction nature of reality.

    If someone want more datailed explanatons I am willing to give them more.


    So the bottom line is that understanding how reality in which we live in works greatly reduces the everyday neuroticism. This is why I have said that I am the most calm person around. Which is a sidefect of knowing how things are going in this reality and what I can expect.


    I think that I simply control too little to be bothered by bad results. I agree that this is a overationalization but this is how things are and I don't see the reason to reject this away of thinking.

    When you think on this way you will also get one other thing, which is that you will notice a huge number of possible outcomes even of you oversimplify everything. Which means that I will constantly making choices to adjust everything. Which means that as long as I am making choices I am in the game. Which is the main thing my J wants- choices and options to kill.



    This is one of the ways how strong J can also be a very calm and relaxed person.

    If we didn't have any P's in this world, we would all be dead. Or we would still be living up in the trees.

    Would you care to explain your claim in more detail ?

    P's are usually more creative than J's. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a P who invented fire or the wheel or some other things that became very important for our development. And I think it could have be a P who was the first who said: "Dude, I'm getting tired of sitting up here all the time, let's go down and see what we can find there!"

    Living in trees sounds pretty creative to me
    The elves did it, and they were pretty smart...

    I think it would have been an XNTP that developed most of those things , but it would have been an ESTP that actually bothered getting out of these trees that we once supposedly lived in
