    Just dumping everything is the whole point. Silly J. :1377:

    Yes, it is.



    Additionally, when someone declares that they're a neat-freak, I find it hard to believe they're an INFP.

    i love, love, love organising (things that are important to me). and lists! i love categorising things into their own little label. school stationary is an absolute joy for me. colour-coded highlights! folders! squeee.

    in accordance, my environmental is selectively tidy (semi-neat, might need a light dusting) because my room is important to me & i try to maintain a clutterfree environment. though, this is so entirely subjective on what is clutter-free, i have books stacked high on top of each other in unsteady towers, but to me, they are just right. i like the ambiance it creates. of bookworm leanings & wanderings. & i have designated areas of where each item goes. but again, it may seem disorganised -- i store my shoes on the bottom rung of my bookshelf! in semi-misaligned neat rows, so i could stare at how pretty my shoes are in the daylight. tear off images from magazines on my wall & cork boards to form a pastiche of everything-i-adore-and-makes-me-happy. my drawers, however, are disorganised & cluttered to the max, just as long i know where they [set items] are. hey, as long as they stay closed, right?

    i don't think i could stand a cluttered home (e.g. clothes on the floor, dishes eternally unwashed, misc. objects not where they are suppose to be). i don't mind messiness but i can't tolerate such an environment for months on end.

    however, this perception is entirely dependent on the situation. if i am depressed, it can be an absolute hole. & often the clutter overwhelms my thinking, putting things away often helps counteract the mind clutter. tidy room = focused mind effect.

    oh, & i store all my unwanted clothes, knick knacks in my brothers room, being an INTP it is so irrelevant to him, and his room is normally a manic mess. it works!

    Sounds wonderful!
    Do you have a good amount of "J" then, that helps you with that, do you think?

    By the way: I love stationery too, and color-coded stuff, and folders and all that kind of things. I love *buying* them, that is :rolli:

    If it were me you shared it with, all you'd have to worry about would be me stealing your books one by one to read them, and leaving them in *other* places in the house
