    But that is not easy either. Even if we forget about where you get your money from. I wouldn't know anything about getting the right people for the project. I would most likely hire people I like and then they would be lazy bums like me and we'd get nothing done.

    I need a structure that is there just to support my ideas. And it needs to be there already. I just walk in and sketch up something.

    Cool

    I have the same problem, I'm a huge procrastinator. I also rarely stick with anything I start. It contradicts my J, but I do like to plan something before I do it, at least tenatively.

    I'm not sure if there is a solution. If you find one, let me know ;p

    Actually I never had problems carrying out my ideas. I think this is due to the fact that my dad is ESFP and I've been learning to use my Se (action way). I'm also very strongly goal oriented persons and if I want something, I make it happen. I only use my Se when I want to reach a goal. If I see no point in acting, I wont do anything just for the sakes of the movement.

    I'm always scoring low on the need to perform, so my need to reach the goal is much stronger that to perform very well in accomplishing it. Quite strange combination .

    I wonder if I will ever get a book published because I am so crap at carrying out the ideas lol I have reams of notes, ideas, scenes, chapters, but sit down and pull it together into a finished product? right now it just isn't happening. No idea if it ever will.

    I have so many ideas, it seems all I do it sit down thinking up new ideas, but it's all in my head and stays there.

    I do that too, but I always try to improve them so either erase or overwrite. maybe I should start a journal. I think places like these are the best place for bringing up your ideas and getting feedback. What you really need is someone to help further your ideas and there are people who want to help in that.

    Another thing I'll do it start one book, make it half way through, find another one I want to read, read half of it, and so on..until I have a heap of unfinished books that are left unread for not the reason of me getting borred of them, but that I just don't "feel" like getting back to them, it's so weird..and annoying..

    If you get the chance, try connecting ideas to music. Will get you back into the mood.

    try to skim the book first and see if you like where it's going, then you will want to read it easier. Some books I don't read straight because they only have certain chapters I'm interested in.

    though i see this with XNFPs a bit, i myself do not have this problem TOO much. though it does happen more then i would like. really XNFPs can execute ideas just fine and are excellent at carrying things out but actually starting the process of carrying out a task is a killer. once they start the task, they might not have too much trouble finishing it.

    Oh yeah, I'm guilty. I think, plan, dream, but rarely ever act on anything. I guess that's why my life is so crappy now. I missed a lot of opportunities that were somewhat handed to me and I didn't take that leap. So no I don't really carry out plans, but I wish I did.
