    By the accepted standards, I definitely fit the bill, but I don't care.

    Wait a minute...I don't think I understand what it is (according to the OP) that makes NFPs lazier than NTPs. What is it?

    It's kind of like the tortoise and the hare. ENxP's especially can start out a task at sprint speed and then give up before they're finished. SJ's just gradually plod along until they get the job done.

    Because NFs think that they're special.

    NPs probably seem to appear to be the most lazy.

    Yeah, I'm pretty much content knowing that I could do something.

    I think that N's are lazy (particularly Ne users) because N is naturally geared toward the future. They may think "Oh, well I can do this later when the time is right", but this usually just results in perpetual procrastination.

    Another reason I think Ns are perceived as lazy is because they don't like to be bogged down with the details of another person's agenda. They usually only have to listen to a boss/manager talk for 3 or 4 seconds before they know what they have to do. Afterward, they just float off into space.

    I know personally my ability to get things done is based on thinking. I make a plan at first of why the task should be done, and then half way in when I lose my inspiration I go over the reasons in my head of why I should keep going and finish.

    Hmmm...but that doesn't answer my question. All you said was that, when you get things done, you use thinking. That doesn't say anything about whether that allows you to get more things done than NFPs.

    I believe for ENxP's thinking is what is needed to accomplish tasks. An ENTP is going to prefer thinking more than an ENFP.
