    You guys are a bunch of lazy asses, geeze.


    I love working and can make almost anything I do fun for me. It comes from growing up and realizing, you sort of dont have a choice.

    I actually have no idea why I don't get fired. Last job I would waste 6 to 7 out of 9 hours a day, yet my boss was really satisfied with my work and kept praising me.

    I had to fire myself out of 'guilt'. They were paying me for being around, felt like stealing.

    i'm very high p too and do much better in a really flexible position with lots of independence. i don't do well with any sort of micro management.

    i don't really have trouble getting to work on time or doing what i'm supposed to do as long as i pick something i enjoy doing that allows me freedom.

    And, I am reliable as I do make it a point to finish my work (one of my values), but don't tell me how to do it, nor when to do it by. Coz then you've got a prob. It will be done though. I also scored points at my previous job with being incredibly flexible, which tied with being reliable, made me apparently an asset. When they were in a tight jam, they would to call me, as chances were I'd be more than willing to help them out and rearrange my schedule. And that means they put up with my sensotard moments, my complete chaos, tardiness and my other quirks and even help me out with those when they caused trouble.

    story of my life sister, story of my life. (100% p)
    I get some easy jobs sometimes, where i basically get overpaid to come once a month, and I'm not even able to do that. Yet I always come wearing a smile and chatting myself into being forgiven (free ice cream helps too)
    I basically never do things I dont define as pleasurable in the short term, which rocks for my private life but sucks for the rest of it.

    My parents are both traditionalistic Js and sensors (at least one of them is for sure). It's kind of a conflict generating topic.

    I've been like that for as long as I can remember.

    How P's survive:

    1. Compartmentalize. Put a bunch of irons in the fire so it always sounds like you're doing work and can pass off lack of progress in one task as "intense focus" on another... even if you're just playing Solitaire or posting on forums half a day. Very few people will know your "full" schedule; hence, you can pad it.

    2. Do bangup work on the jobs you complete.

    3. Sound like you're on top of things and can tell someone exactly what's going on, even if you're nowhere close to being completed with it.

    4. Build extra time into your schedules, don't go for the bare minimal time -- give yourself room to play and explore.

    5. Get a variety of job duties so that you can multi-task more when you get bored or stuck.

    6. Have your resume on hand so you can go somewhere else if you get canned or habitually bored.

    Disclaimer: For entertainment purposes only, I would NEVER confess to running scams like this myself (gasp).

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    7. Always look irritated or stressed out. Makes you look busy. Credit to Costanza for that one. It actually works.
