    Getting in touch with your inner consistancy.

    Is this an E P N T thing?

    I have found that I am not consistantly anything. Except in thought.

    But i have this tendency to rush into things guns ablazing, soaking up everything I possibly could, then walking away. Unfortantly this extreme nature can be a bit of a burden sometimes. It confuses other for one. It makes impossible demands on you like, "I know your capable of this and this and this, do it now" When people assume that in the off times your being lazy. No one can run at such a quick rate all the time, but when I am all consumed I am more intrigued and comfortable. But yes then you need to stop and take stock of everything that you need to analyze that you didn't while you were running with it.

    How do you learn to be slow and steady?


    Any of you have this problem?



    Good description of what I am talking about


    you'll incubate your thoughts for a long time and then, out of nowhere, want to apply them directly. The benefit is that your thoughts are original and when applied correctly, they can be very successful. The problem is that others around you have not been clued into your thoughts until you're ready to run with them. They have not been prepared to assist you.

    Yeah, i can relate. I try to fix it by imagining how it comes across to the person on the other side of the nuttiness, because otherwise I assume they know where I'm coming from/going with something . . . usually incorrectly. Often the "come again?" will help to clue me in that I need to slow it down and lay the groundwork/context more before jumping in using my own incubated ideas/language.

    I can relate to this and I am about as Introverted as it gets.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    It's an N thing! It's a P thing! Maybe it's an NP thing? Let's spin the wheel!

    Or maybe it is just an N thing. I know many NJs who do the same thing.
