1. I understand why people think I am lazy. My lack of interests in subjects that are considered mainstream in society is the cause of this one. I've never considered myself lazy as a person. Lazy with certain subjects, sure. But not overall.
2. I grew up in an NTJ environment. I worked for money for as long as I can remember, starting with washing cars when I was 6, to working 20 hours a week in a supermarket when I was 15 after school. I've never really felt short on cash, I bought toys, games, computers, whatever I wanted to have, with money I earned. I've always had lots of liberties, I wasn't forced into any belief system and have been given the chance to find my own way in life. I am a jack of all trades, I now do a quite demanding, very encompassing, daily job. And I'm pretty much considered the 'handyman' at work. There's much I can do and there's little I fail at. I like the amount of change in my life and although I sometimes dedicate myself to something in particular, I can never throw myself onto it completely because of my demanding life.
3. Not sure how you mean this, but I need my own time every now and then to recharge in which I do whatever I want to do at that time and nothing else.
4. Knowing why some people in my environment function the way they do as opposed to me, has helped me cope better in a very J environment. I was agitated more quickly with people when I was younger, I have more patience now (To be honest, I already had quite a lot of patience, but now even more so. ).
