    Exactly.. I think long-term thinking and long-term planning are similar. If we want to make the distinction, maybe the former is more 'loose' and the latter is more 'rigid.'

    I have a hard time pulling something out of my ass at in the moment, but I can make branching plans that depend on how something is going or where it starts heading.

    And, as you say, when the opportunity occurs, you jump on it.

    Yes it is a J world, isn't it?

    That's not necessarily a bad thing, I think a P world would be pure chaos. But it doesn't have to stop us from contributing in our own ways right? I think for a long time I felt a lot of pressure to be more J, but the P way can be just as effective (sometimes moreso). Maybe for both Js and Ps the most important thing to learn is to have an idea of where you want to go and doing what you need to do to get there while maintaining the flexibility to deal with unforeseen events. That is my definition of effectiveness, and I think both Js and Ps can achieve it, although their methods might be slightly different.

    Embrace your P haha!

    Aw man sorry @EcK I'm not sure this thread is going where you intended...
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Yes it comes down to "things I can control" and "things I cannot control".

    Without my P-ness I would have never come to the conclusions about life that I have (or lack thereof)! I'd likely become a politician, or a member of the clergy, or some shit...

    I embrace my P fully
