"How dreadful!" cried Lord Henry. "I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect." ~ Oscar Wilde - The picture of Dorian Gray
Given that the business and academic world is strongly J oriented, how do you as P survive in it? Some answers from >80% P would be good.
Be a performer/inspirer, something that involves alotta people skills and on the fly improvisation.
I'm a J butI can't work with the general J-ness of the world (wich is: dumb rules without any foundation, not accepting of my improvements on the plan), it's the wrong kind of J... so it's not about being P or J.
What you lack in discipline, you make it up with intelligence and insight.
And eventually, you learn to discipline yourself into getting things done, but at the same time don't punish yourself by setting extremely high standards.
Ps can't get things done on time? Please! I'm high on the P function yet finish stuff on time. Yes, I procrastinate when it comes to starting work. But I always get things done.
Don't buy the bullshit that J types feed us about us being lazy. Most times, we're not. We just function differently (interestingly, I've definitely met Js who are lazy).
To all Ps, treasure your creativity and insightful way of seeing the world
pffff. I never did homework and always stayed up late -- in high school I finished stuff too late because I couldn't care less about it.
A severely demotivated J is the stereotype P these days, wich is really insulting to the P's.
The only problem with P's in the J business world, is that they have to watch their flakyness not interfering with the J's temper.
J's need P's to take care of stuff they can't - human things. :P
It isn't easy in the main because I have such different priorities from my J collegues! If I was to passionately care about the things they did I'm sure it would not be so bad but add a dash of laziness to a whole lotta indifference and you have an impossible combo!
... couldn't drag me away

Željko Ražnatovic: do you want heir's?
Željko Ražnatovic: to carry your genealogical code??
Sometimes, I wonder if I can survive with my lazyness, but most of the time, I tend to think my P is a chance, since I cannot work on something which does not interest me, I've met many Js who were first proud of their performance and easyness to work, but now they feel somewhat depressed because they work in something which does not interest them at all. But when they discovered it, it was "too late" (even if this words has no sense for me).
