    What kind of explanation would be okay for you? Would "boss said those numbers are important" be fine ? Whole point is entering numbers, not doing it because you see a personal significance so you can "Pull it off". Point is about how long it wouldnt be a problem for you, so you dont need to find extra motivation.

    Well this certainly would not make me happy if we overlook that I could like it in a "job done" way after I finnish.
    Also I have serious doubts that I did it right since I zone out on regular basis so in the case of this kind of a job I would do that for sure. Which means that there will huge number of mistakes in the database. Especially since I have to check every text I wrote for typos and bad grammar and I still don't notice some of them.


    As for the boss thing. If the entire thing would last for about 2 hours and it is obvious that the boss is in the bad mood I would just take the work and do it. But in the case that it would take 2 weeks with 8 hours of work each day than I would probably ask a few things anyway.


    But to give you a short answer: yes, after about 10 minutes I would need to start forcing myself.

    Hm interesting, since Keirsey speaks of SPs being the ones with so-called "ADD." After all, "ADD" kids tend to disrupt the class and look for fun/exciting things and sensory stimulation.

    I couldn't do it. I would write a simple program, put her on autopilot, and walk away.

    If the data source isn't electronic; such as, pages of papers, then I'm surely figuring out a way to do one of those ocr scans through a sheet feeder. Then, I'll parse the data somehow into a format that will easily transform/import into the database. and whala!

    I would probably manage to keep on doing it for an hour straight, before needing a break. I would probably stand one month of such a job, if the pay was particularly good. Anything longer would have a serious impact on my sanity.

    I actually do okay with this sort of task, and have a pretty long concentration span with that sort of thing, as long as I don't have to do it every day (then I'd feel like I'm going nowhere). If it was like doing my tax where I have to find a million little bits of info, I'd go nuts though. Just entering and checking numbers isn't too bad once you get in the swing of it. I chose 6 hours+. Was probably an overestimate though, because I'd need the task to have some importance before I'd consider it worth doing.

    4 hours, probably, because I'd need to stretch my back or move my ass after that long, at the longest.

    I don't really *get* bored; I can (and have!) do data entry forever, because I'm thinking about other stuff at the same time that I'm doing it.

    Just because you could doesn't mean you should. I put 6+ hours anyway...

    you can =/= is not exhausting to you

    isnt this different a lot?

    i could do it for maybe 24 hours if there is a deadline tomorrow with mini-breaks for 5 min every 20mins but then the correct answer to the poll is "0-30 minutes" not 24h....
    i think most people immediately count this as 24 hours.

    I can go all night, too.

    But that's unrelated to this thread.
