    Default ENTP - Pressure Prompted Procrastinators and Crammers

    Hey Fellow ENTPs, curious how you guys resolve any issues of being pressure prompted individuals.

    Example being, I have midterms coming up, but I procrastinate like crazy.

    I read that ENTPs are procrastinators and hoping to get some tips on how you guys deal with this part of your personality.

    I love complaining. I never notice when I complain though... but people around me tell me : ))
    But I'm not a procrastinator...I complain.. I don't know.. for me these are 2 different things.

    Be more J, problem solved.

    As to how to be more J, ask the ENTJs in this forum. They will tell you how great it is to be one.

    I'm not an ENTP but I can procrastinate just as well. I've gotten better, though. For the most part, just forcing yourself to start is the hardest. After that, good old fear (of failure/imcompetance) usually keeps me going.

    With tests I find it helpful to study during any sort of downtime I might get; such as while waiting for class to start or while eating lunch. If you're standing around bored wondering whether there's something better to do, then that's the time to pull out notes and study. You may only end up remembering bits of information at a time, but every little bit you've studied already is information you don't have to go over in detail later.

    Studying in intervals will help keep you refreshed. When you find yourself nodding off, take a short break. Studying while half asleep is not effective at all. Do something unrelated to the subject, preferably something fun: read blogs, play a video game, make a sandwich, etc. Keep the momentum going.

    I embrace my pressure promptedness and leave things till the last minute safe in the knowledge that when I have to do it, I will =/

    Any other approach is temporary and generally takes hella enthusiasm or lack of distractions.

    you need to turn that frown upside down - doing things in the scarce minutes prior to a deadline is efficient. it means you don't spend any more time doing it than is absolutely necessary and it leaves you more time to do fun stuff, which is good for your mental health.

    LOL. That's how I'd like to see it, but now I'm stressing.
