    Plan B only exists to get you back to plan A.

    Well, I'm very P... and I've let it have its way before... and I sort of hate myself when I don't instill any P discipline. Part of my motivation comes from those students who aren't necessarily smart, but study every minute... and ask a million questions during lecture... there are a few really obnoxious ones I'm thinking of... and if I don't get a better test score I know I'm going to hear about it... especially since one of them is in my lab group.

    I value education in general. I've grown up with friends who are either self motivated or who have parents with a gun to her/his head. Whether or not I think grades represent intelligence... I know the only way I'll get to where I want to go is if I make myself work.

    Planners? I've tried... I think sharpie + hands works better... harder to lose =P

    As far as work outside of school... I've only had customer service jobs. Carrying out tasks like cleaning is the easiest way to avoid customers and coworkers... so I'm actually a fairly decent employee... well, outside of "establishing a connection with the customers" or small talk.

    To compensate: When I get mad about having to carry out a task, my misanthropy levels increase a little. My attitude towards people is typically "GTFO", but I'm able to cover that up well as long as I eventually get alone time.

    Yeah, it's optimal/easiest. The goal is the thing. You guys get so bogged down with the details that you forget that.

    There is nothing quite so thrilling as succeeding by accident!

    lol, actually, it's plan A only because it occurred to me first, not necessarily because it was exactly what I wanted to happen....

    I'm....not a very linear thinker....

    but I do agree that to have the best life one must learn to balance their traits. Only then can they be successful (however they define success), and happy, and loved, and functional.

    Nah, just toss out A when it doesn't work in favor of B and already start up C and D. Whichever one gets you to the goal, is fine (of course, this is all depends if the goal is at all worth the effort *yawns*)

    When I try to make myself step back from my viewpoint of plans, I guess I can see where you're coming from. Apparently to you, a plan is just...a plan. A plan to me includes the specific end goal that I want. Plan B, C, D, or E are only backups and won't produce an end goal as appealing as Plan A was going to produce. They're second best.

    I was thinking about this last night.
    My job is actually better for a P, not a J.
    Things are just coming up left and right and there is really no room for a plan.
    You need to just roll with the punches. Its fast paced and you need to be able to do things spur of the moment constantly.

    The J's are just as successful as the P's, but the J's where I work tend to be more easily worn out and stressed.

    When is a plan not a plan......Interesting.......Oooooh, pretty butterfly!.......
    Sorry, what were you saying about goals?

    Srsly, that sort of nesting implies faulty logic and heightens the risk of failure. Decoupling is required. I could teach you a lot about decoupling - it was my major.
