    I just put a lot of effort into it. It's not a natural behavior, but a learned one. I made it happen because I determined it was, well, needed.

    Yea, I don't lose things now for the same reasons.

    My place looks like a mess, because I'm afraid of organizing it to the point that I might forget where I placed something.

    btw: here is a description on inferior function of Se for INFJ and INTJ.

    Yeah, it's not just inferior Se. I'm always losing things - I'm a total ditz about it.

    I don't break things more often than the average person though.

    In my nuclear family, my INTP dad and I were both horrible about losing things, while my INFJ mother was the one who NEVER lost things and always kept perfect track of everything. On the other hand, she was the klutz of the family -- always tripping on things or knocking things over.

    Sounds like you had a fun family.

    Cool, so I can conclude that every type loses things, but maybe INJ's are more klutzy. @chubber, thanks for posting that. I have the book and it's a good one.

    This sounds very familiar to me and I would also attribute this to my inferior Se. I'm also particulary "gifted" at losing things :p
    What MBTI as a whole has helped me most with is realizing that some of my practical debilities must result from inferior Se. Realizing your inferiorities.
    Growing up, and the experience that comes with it, have helped me a lot with developing more practical skills. I would say that has made me a lot more comfortable with myself.
    I've learned to be calmer, more pragmatic & observant with my senses through the years.

    My dad's an INTJ too ! And that's exactly what happens. He gets frustrated with himself when dealing with practical things and tries to rush it.
    Compared to him I excel in practical things and that's saying a lot.

    I'm actually pretty good with my stuff. I like nice things, but I primarily like nice things that I can use. So I end up buying high quality utilitarian items. Otherwise I live pretty minimally. I would loose more things if this weren't the case. But as it is, I don't have much to loose.
