    I will think to myself, "okay, I need to do this and this and this before I go out... I should do them in this order so that I don't have to wander around the whole damn house again." But then I always forget what I'm doing, and will do them out of order, so by the time I'm ready, I've wandered around the house five times before I get out the door.

    Maybe it would be helpful to start making lists or ease a bit on that planning thing xD

    I am very scatterbrained at times, but I am also a very responsible person. I always make sure to take care of the big stuff, like paying bills and getting to work exactly on time. But I do A LOT of silly scatterbrainy stuff. The other night I drove a couple of my friends and I to a restaurant, parked, then we all got out and I started walking towards the restuarant. It was my best friend (an ENFP) who was the one to point out that I had left the car running! Everyone had a good laugh about that one.

    Yes! I am usually contemplating the social activity of lizards outside my office window, the petal of the orchid in my desk vase, or the social injustice of some local (or state) government's new law which screws the impoverished.

    My boss is ISTJ--to the extreme. I love ISTJs in general, but I'm experiencing death by paperwork and nitpicking with her. She thinks I'm scatterbrained, abstract, and too empathetic. I think she's missing the forest for the trees, obsessive over unimportant details, and overly/pointlessly argumentative. LOL!

    Typical examples:

    Went swimming wearing eye makeup.. didn't have any remover so decided to avoid getting my face wet for the hour. Succeeded only to get out and shower my face and give myself panda eyes.

    Making breakfast: put kettle on for cup of tea, poured breakfast cereal into bowl, got out milk .... poured boiling water onto cereal... Tried eating it but it's really not very tasty...I don't recommend it...

    I need lists, and I need to always write down and calculate how much time I need if i#m going somewhere to great detail. My lists become chaos and I lose them or write a new one forgetting about the old one or they don't make sense to me.

    Being so scatty makes me pretty anxious ahh! I always think I'll forget something or other. Learning to drive is a battle. After 20 lessons you start to worry when the instructor uses the word 'clutch' and it takes you 5 seconds to remember what that actually is... which is a bit late really when you're in busy traffic....uh... no accidents..yet...

    Oh yes, I can totally relate. LOL

    "We must apply our humble efforts to build a more just and humane world. I want to affirm emphatically: such a world is possible. To create this new society we must reach out our hands, without hatred and rancour, for reconciliation and peace, with unfaltering determination in the defense of truth and justice. We know we cannot plant seeds with closed fists. To sow we must open our hands."
