    Great post! I've been doing something kind of like this for a while, though not anywhere near as organized, and all in my head.
    I think having a child started it; so little time that I had to be more efficient with what I had. It's worked very very well. All these things I've wanted to do but never actually done are now happening. I've actually become incredibly ruthless with my time. Everything must have a purpose toward furthering a priority and be a conscious decision.

    Of course this doesn't mean I don't do anything for fun or relaxation. My emotional and spiritual well-being are high on my list of priorities after all. But now I'm much more likely to sit and play the piano than blob out with google.

    Sample format of the Personal Mission Statement in particular?

    Actually, there is lots of material on the Internet. The “Mission Statement” is a big part of the business world; and then the self-help community appropriated it and said the individual could use something similar; hence the “Personal Mission Statement.”

    Just google “Personal Mission Statement,” and you’ll find lots of material.

    Meantime, if you want to read more about the exercise as a whole, check out “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey. That book is really about Te-style planning and time management. But to manage your time properly, you have to define yourself and determine your priorities. So in that sense, Te intersects with Fi in places.

    Thanks for your response!

    Like you, I had pretty much worked out all this by myself prior to reading Covey's book. I even had it down on paper: I keep my "Personal Mission Statement" as the last page of my daily/weekly to-do list, so that I remember to put a few of my high-priority items into my daily/weekly to-do list.

    Also I add a couple twists of my own to prompt me to develop more Fe in my interactions with other people; I use that Fe material as part of my V&A exercises.

    But for purposes of my post (above), I stuck close to what Covey described in his book. It's a good intro for anyone who might be new to the concept, and then Covey's book can be mined for more info on the subject if people want that.

    I find it interesting the issues threads for J-dom NF's is less than half as long as the N-dom NF's.

    I wonder if there's something to that? I was thinking maybe it had to do with introversion, but INFJ's have the longest thread. Then I thought maybe it had to do with type commonality, since ENFJ's are quasi-rare, but INFP's are anything but rare around these parts, and their thread is much shorter as well.

    Maybe we INFP's have less issues? As an INFP, I almost feel ashamed, I thought dwelling on issues was OUR thing?

    I have heaps of issues --I dwell, oh how I dwell. But mostly in my head.
    For personal things, I'm not sure how comfortable I'd be discussing them in this format. One on one is more my style. And I really hate generalizing things to apply to a whole group... I have an issue with X, all INFPs have an issue with X.
    Damn you X, you need to die.

    So I don't know, maybe because I have an issue bringing up issues all INFPs have this issue? Yeah, that sounds pretty good. QUESTION ANSWERED.

    Yes, but I was hoping no one would say it.

    This post made me smile.

    And amusement aside, I think it hits on the truth. This is going to make you mad RD, but I think the generalization that INFP's don't like to generalize holds water. A lot of them like to qualify their posts with: PERSONALLY, I can only speak for myself, in my experience, etc, etc. So this sort of thread is not as appealing to them perhaps...

    Nah, it takes a lot more than that to make me mad. And anyway, I kind of meant that in a round about way. I mean, I suspect it could be the case, but really have no idea. What I really like, is creating plenty of loopholes and disclaimers to weasel out of if I decide to change my tune.

    My own reaction to the thread:

    1) Mostly the thread is simply out of date. A couple days ago I responded to the only recent question(s) that I could find.

    2) Also, much of the thread is about self-definition: Procrastination, idealism, hypersensitivity, lack of practicality, etc. It’s good stuff for the newbies, but it’s not of much interest to me: been there, done that. I prefer responding to specific questions or problems; that’s what gets my Ne going. So I look for active, ongoing threads with a specific issue to be tackled.

    [Edit:] Oh yeah, and I put 5 stars on the thread the other day. The INFP thread was the only one of the "stickied" type-specific threads in the NF subforum without any stars. Does that mean we're too humble to give ourselves gold stars? Or did we all just have trouble figuring out where that button is?
