    As an NF I think I can explain why INFPs can be seen as lazier than INTPs.

    INTPs can ignore dryness better than INFPs just by logically saying 'Just 4.321142 paychecks to go until I get that awesome 32 button mouse I saw at bestbuy.'

    INFPs like to do things that have a level of inspiration with them, or 'Flavor.' Since they thrive on things that trigger Fi, and most work doesnt, they get bored quickly.

    This is probably true. My brother is (probably) an INFP and getting him to do necessary work is even harder than it is for me or my INTJ brother.

    I'm a lazy perfectionist.

    I need to hire me a secretary/personal bitch to do all the mundane shit I've got to do.

    Life is too short to waste time spending energy on boring-everyday-shit.

    Speaking of, I need to brush my teeth.

    Hahahaha, just thought of the movie Coming to America.

    I think a lot of what not-N's refer to as work is just busy-ness and doesn't really accomplish much. N's see patterns and realize "been there, done that" and move on to something that might be more efficacious ... well, maybe not in the case of ENFP's... (Sorry! just kidding!)

    I'm sure I appear lazy in many ways, but I actually get stuff done in my own little way.

    On the job, I always felt like people were surprised when I would announce that everything on my end was done and I was just waiting on them to wrap up their work so we could meet the deadline. I would get this look like, "Wow, and I thought you were just on myspace all day." They didn't realize that I work quickly in short bursts and get it done efficiently so I have time to goof off and daydream, haha.

    I'm also very mood-influenced, meaning, if I am not in the mood, then I avoid a task. This is not good in some ways (procrastination), but when the mood hits where I feel energized to get it done, then it's done quickly and done well.

    I also do a lot of the work in my head first. This is bad when I feel like I already did it, but it has yet to be physically executed. However, when I go to do it, it's done quickly since I have it all mapped out.

    I ran a production/art department with that work style, and they were pissed when I left to do my own thing, so apparently it was working.

    This may sound ridiculous, but it is sometimes helpful for me to role-play in order to get something done.

    Whenever I mow the lawn or use my weed-wacker, I pretend that I am some ancient warrior slaying plant demons or something. It's the only way to make things interesting.

    When I was younger I would pretend that I was a robot when I had to organize things. Organization became my "function".

    Even now, I find it is helpful to act as if I am a madhat social alarmist or scientist when writing an essay. In this way, I can be passionate about my stance without feeling bad for being close minded.

Lennon always seemed to need inspiration and always complained how Paul would walk in one day with 20 songs and ask to record and John would have to grudgingly come up with something (This happened supposedly on Sgt. Pepper's). He didn't want to force his songs. Not to mention I have read (And kind of noticed from listening) John wasn't as adept instrumentally as Paul. Biographies also characterize Lennon as very lazy.
    Lennon's song 'I'm only sleeping' is basically my theme song, so yes.

    Oh totally
    I also pretend to be explaining what I am doing to someone . Like when I was a kid and had homework, I'd think: "This is how you solve this math problem."

    Here it is:

    When I wake up early in the morning,
    Lift my head, I'm still yawning
    When I'm in the middle of a dream
    Stay in bed, float up stream

    Please don't wake me, no
    don't shake me
    Leave me where I am
    I'm only sleeping

    Everybody seems to think I'm lazy
    I don't mind, I think they're crazy
    Running everywhere at such a speed
    Till they find, there's no need

    Please don't spoil my day
    I'm miles away
    And after all
    I'm only sleeping

    Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
    Taking my time

    Lying there and staring at the ceiling
    Waiting for a sleepy feeling

    Please don't spoil my day
    I'm miles away
    And after all
    I'm only sleeping

    Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
    Taking my time

    When I wake up early in the morning,
    Lift my head, I'm still yawning
    When I'm in the middle of a dream
    Stay in bed, float up stream

    Please don't wake me, no
    don't shake me
    Leave me where I am
    I'm only sleeping

    My super -busy motivated ESTP husband whole-heartedly agrees.
