    Maybe it's enneagram related.

    Yeah, I admit I hoard a little. I just have difficulty throwing things away. I will keep something stupid and useless just in case I might need it some day. And it's pretty ridiculous what I think might be necessary - sometimes the apocalypse would be required to make that object useful.

    I will also cop to attaching personal significance to objects. I sometimes even feel guilty about throwing certain things out because it's like I'm rejecting it.

    I do think it is tertiary or inferior Si, because the Si doms/aux in my family don't do it. My ESTJ sister has regular purges of possessions that I find to be brutal and ruthless.

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    Worst hoarders I know are Ni-doms, actually.

    That's interesting. I wonder why that is. I think I'm messy, but I don't really like having loads of stuff. I keep some things, but I don't have a huge emotional attachment to a lot of items...

    I was mostly thinking of one INTJ and one INFJ specifically. (So they may not be very representative of INxJs generally.) They love collecting things and they hate getting rid of things. They're easily drained by getting rid of things, so a cycle begins where they take a day or two to get rid of only a few things, and the next time they try to get rid of things is maybe a year later, after they've bought more things then they got rid of.

    I am so guilty of this. Letting things pile up makes me madder and madder until the only way I can get rid of all that energy is by purging E V E R Y T H I N G .

    Then you know some odd Ni-doms. The ones I know (myself included) seem driven, perhaps by aux Te, to prune our collections ruthlessly. IME, INTPs hoard more, because they can't bring themselves to make decisions about throwing things away. They want to remain open to the possibility that the item may be useful some day.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Rings true with the INTPs I know!

    I don't get it, with the INTJ I'm thinking of. Then again, I don't really understand collectors who feel the need to have ten copies of the same model of the same thing, without any desire to do anything with it except display it. Her house is like a museum, and she has at least twenty collections of various types of antiques. It's out of control. We try to help her and the process is just like the process described in my previous post.

    I know a hoarder who I think is INFP, though maybe ISFP. Her husband who lives there too is ESTJ.
