    Default How do Ps survive in the working world?

    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.

    I'm only 77.4% P, so I'm not sure.

    I was too lazy to figure out my exact percentage.

    Seek freedom and become captive of your desires, seek discipline and find your liberty.

If you go looking for anything at all, your chances of finding it are very good, because of all the things in the world, you're sure to find some of them."

    Well you only need to know the ball park figure, my using tenths just makes sure everyone instantly knows everything about me from viewing the percentages. I don't even have to meet them (Thank Christ!).

    Hopefully soon, I'll develop a test which will give you the result to the 17th decimal place. Of course, the test will be longer than the Encyclopedia Britannica, but there's a bonus: On the last page, it tells you what color the sky is.

    I'm 77% P and I admit it isn't easy. Let's say I use other skills to survive mostly..

    100% here, I'm a mess. I never work or study or anything, still a student (business school).
    So far I sweet talked myself out of every situation.

    Euhm..when I actively think about it, I guess I do something that's often considered a negative thing...

    I guess I just get to know a lot of people. And I do a lot of favors as I enjoy helping people...and they in turn sometimes feel the need to do the same for me. I'm also quite good at asking for help without actually asking for it. Again, I don't do this consciously. I help people coz I like doing that, not coz then 'they'll owe me', and when I'm not sure how to handle a situation it's usually written on my face and, well..often, guys tend to pick up on it and help me.

    Also, P itself helps as well. Because I'm a high P, I'll go with the flow and jump on the opportunities that pass by and adapt my plan to them. And something always comes a long, which you can turn into something productive in the spurr of the moment. When I have a need for something, I can be surprisingly inventive and unconventional in getting a working solution. Also, I tend not to be too picky on what is good enough, allowing the room to find a solution, even if it isn't as pretty as it should be.
