    I once thought I was lazy

    Then I realized my NT mind was just sorting out the relevant from the irrelevant

    Yes, I am ENFP and I have this problem a lot of the time too. A LOT OF THE TIME. Usually I just have to wait until the pressure builds enough that it forces me to do it, or, as others have suggested just start writing (or doing, if it's not a writing assignment) anything and then it seems to just... flow. Or at least then you have something to work with.



    Can someone explain to me the theory behind why is it an N-P trait?
    because you hated work, simple as that.
    You find work exhausting and don't want to do it, putting it off until the last minute.
    You have to find something you enjoy doing.
    work is like investing in your future, or investing in your goals, only through work can you actuallize your goals.
    The fear of poverty turns people into slaves of money.

    That doesn't make sense why it's N-P, though. Don't lots of people hate work or find it exhausting?

    it's the P. we expect it to come to us, so we can react to it. "it" being idea, motivation, le mot juste, and "it" only comes when the pressure is high- when we sense the deadline approaching, and we react to the adrenaline.
    method doesn't always work out.
    J are proactive.

    read. write. doesnt matter if it's shit. it helps to avoid checking the clock.

    i cant will myself to sleep when i'm watching my time tick away.

    people hate work because they don't know what it is.
    They hate it because they don't see the point of doing it, or drains their mental energy out. Adding to this is time and deadlines, in modern day society, you have to get things done within a certain time limit.

    I mean it is not that difficult to lift a pen and start writing words on a piece of paper.

    Oh the joys of having a large P-ness..

    All joking aside, I can understand your dilemma. I always seem to have this problem when it comes to papers, projects, homework..just about anything, really. I do get it done, in the end, but it can be stressful. I do enjoy the improvisation sometimes. It's like I'm pushing myself to see what amazing thing I can come up with in the most limited time period. Testing myself, ya know? Anyway, I'm pretty fed up with my bad habits (because really, they are bad) and I am attempting to change them. Good luck with fixing yours: it isn't easy.

    As for your current dilemma..I find that when I try to force myself AT FIRST, I automatically resist. It's a quirk, and I'm probably not alone with it. Just attempt to let it flow. That's all I can really say.

    When I was in school, I had such large Pness, that I can't remember actually having been in school... Almost...

    Any course or work I had to do that wasn't interesting to me, I did last minute, really little, if I could suffer the grade, not at all. I aimed to have passing grades, but not a tid bit more than that. And wasted all my spare time on playing around. My last year was so bad that I hardly even followed the first 2/3 hours of the day, and even suffered a lot of 1's for not attending secret tests without reason of absense.

    Still, I must have picked up some stuff in the classes I did attend. As I passed and got my lil' paper.

    When I look back at it now, from a hard working person's perspective. I know I could have done so astoundingly well if I had put some effort into school, that I wonder what would've become of me if I didn't threw my towel with almost everything in school.

    I mean, would I have still become a succesful entrepeneur, or would I have become a regular loyal deskjob worker?
