    I think threads like these just boil down to displacement.

    What do you mean by displacement exactly? Like displacement of people? Or how we are displaced in our environment?

    What can an NJ do that an SJ can't?

    I don't think there's even one. The inclusion of NJs in the MBTI roster seems little more than a PC attempt to make things like high-minded arrogance, intellectual intolerance, derision of experiential knowledge, and so on into "personality traits" instead of things to dislike and be dismissive of.

    - Excellent memory of past details. Me? I pick up the general lessons from the past and forget the rest of the details. I prefer to focus more on the future; I suppose I haven't the attention span to ruminate on the past.

    - Detail-oriented. I just worry about fulfilling the general purpose, and I tend to inadvertently gloss over the minor little details. They annoy me. They slow me down. I haven't the patience. So delegated away they are.

    - Being content. The SJs I know tend to work hard for their allotted 8 hours (or what have you) and be satisfied with the results that they get from it. Contrary to stereotype, they clearly make time for work and non-work. Most NJs I know (including myself) have a goal or state that they want to achieve. And until it is, it's like the whole point of life (temporarily) is to do so. And even that goal is just one small segment of an even bigger, all-encompassing goal.

    this is a very good point. my INTJ friend does not know how to relax when he's working on a goal. he struggles to seperate out his activities and view anything as anything other than a bizarre cosmic whole.

    STJs are very good at breaking things down into simple, easy to follow steps and then getting it done. NTJs make things too damn complicated, as brilliant as they are. ISTJs often seem like they're stupid, but it's just because they break things down into steps that don't require any thought or intelligence, which can make them brutally effective. making things deliberately more complicated for a sense of self importance is a problem many NTs have that makes them significantly less effective (as opposed to the SJ equivilent which is blowing minutia out of proportion to get the same effect. of course, for both NTs and SJs, I'm talking about the arrogant ones)

    Maybe an ESxJ, but Si doms need to get some context of whatever it is. I think any IJ type is likely to take a few reflective moments before acting.
