    • Tell me to do something because I'm supposed to, or because that's what other people do
    • Shoot idea after idea at me, without giving me time to process anything
    • Treat me like I'm stupid, or like I should automatically defer to your judgement without giving me reasons
    • Breezily act as if the things I tend to struggle with (mostly involving people skills or confident self-presentation) are easy and enjoyable for everyone
    • Try to manipulate me instead of being direct

    For ENFPs, guilt-tripping followed up by tight micromanagement will do nicely. It's practically like putting money on your lottery ticket is not going to win

    Additional bonus point may be collected:
    - make sure the work is opposed to the goal in the big picture but stubbornly claim some meaningless rule demands it.
    - make sure the work is dull, repetitive, and has to be done alone.
    - make it clear that your boss/colleague is going to nitpick each and every detail afterwards.

    -Don't explain why the task must be done. Say "just do it" or "I don't know why, just do it".
    -Require me to take steps that are completely inefficient, hairsplitty, and tedious - even if I know a better way to do it.
    -Don't allow me to work independently, question my competence
    -Make a big issue out of HOW to do it whether than just the end result (similar to point #2)
    -Guilt trip
    -Explain how it benefits only YOU ("I'd really appreciate it!")
    -Fail to know how to delegate the task. Don't have me do busywork when the secretary can do it. I have better things to do.
    -Insist on this task when it's lower on my totem pole of current priorities.

    Micromanage me.

    Keep telling me what I'm doing wrong, especially if it's little petty procedural things.

    Talk to me in a threatening/authoritarian/holier than thou manner.

    Use a dry critical method of motivational feedback.

    It is tough to motivate me, and that's probably a type thing.

    Really, anything other than "Hey man, do me a favor?" will not work. I don't take orders, but I do take requests.

    Things that don't work:
    -Offers of material wealth
    -Offers of sex
    -Direct orders
    -Sneaky indirect orders

    For those things, I will be insulted and refuse to do whatever it is. But again, a kind request is usually the right way to motivate me.

    well, it pisses me off when i'm told to do something, then i do it the best way i figure i can, then someone tells me i've done it wrong. if there are rules, tell me at the beginning, damn it. this keeps happening to me at work.

    look i did it!
    "um actually you should have done this before that and those aren't the right forms and yadda..."
    well why didn't anyone tell me that before i started?
    "because it's called learning on the job!!"

    - telling me I have to do it (a certain way, by a certain time, or even at all)

    Don't trust.
    Don't laugh.
    Don't forgive.

    ISFJ 9w1

    Easiest ways to demotivate me

    • Make a time-specific routine a necessity. Make all procedures non-negotiable.
    • Give me zero autonomy. Closely supervise me.
    • Make no room for a behind the scenes role.
    • Be unable to discuss things calmly and somewhat impersonally.
    • Place me in a turbulent, hostile, hypercritical, emotionally volatile, or similar environment.
    • Be oblivious to nuanced communication and implicit needs.
    • Dismiss my personal concerns and talk down to me.
    • Give me zero expectations and suggest I go with my gut.
    • Give me rigid expectations and freak out when I bend some of them.
    • "Correct" me improperly.

    Exactly. Few things are more annoying.
