Sometimes, I wonder what reinforces my procastinating ways, and, although I know that it's because I haven't (yet) faced dire consequences for my procastination (seen bad, but, always could've been worse before I weasled out).
And, I had a conversation with my mom over the weekend, and she said, about me, "The results of your work, when you finally decide to jump into it, is very thorough, and always complete. Only problem, nobody knows when you will jump in. Your dad can be telling you for weeks to help him set up the new TV, and grumble that you seem to find time for going out with friends, etc., but not to help him. But, when you finally do, whenever that is, the job is done, without needing follow-up, and at lightening speed. Interesting quirk you have, and I see this in pretty much every task you do."
And, I've realized that my procastinating ways are reinforced because the byproduct of it is, default intensity, which is a must for me to tackle something. If I wait until the 11th hour to do something, the urgency of the task gets amphed, and, as such, I can finally dive into it full force. Otherwise, I can barely muster up interest in a task. The same, sadly, with school work. I need it to be a challenge, and, obviously the content of the work doesn't change, so, that added dimension of challenge, I create by skewing the odds (subconsciously?) AGAINST my favour (like leaving it until the end). Which ups the intensity.
If this is true, how do I get around overcoming my procastination if my main thirst is intensity? Can anyone else relate? ENTPs? Other Ps?
