    INTJs don't combine enormous surges of feelings (or what may feel like it) and focus on other things well (productively in this case I guess).

    This not meant as an offense but I dont think you can forever cover everything you havent learnt to cope with yet under the intj description.

    Assuming the OP is fairly young, I think it's best to focus on your studies first if they are important to you. God forbid something like pregnancy happen. I think this issue really depends on how much natural discipline and focus a person has. If you're honest with yourself and know that you are weak in these areas when a love interest is at your hands, then it really is best to focus on your studies.

    Yeah, that's my story and I'm sticking with it.

    Agreed X10. Unless you want to get rid of her!

    I thought ESFP's were the ones who they said can't talk and chew gum at the same time.

    INTJ's can't focus and be productive and still be in a relationship?

    I know that this is J-anaethma, but allow for some flex in the "plan". You're talking about not dating this woman for an entire semester because you've got it "all planned"? There's *no* time in there to do fun stuff? There should be, for your sanity if nothing else. If you want to ask her out, do so. If things go well, hang out with her more, while still giving yourself time to focus on school too. If she's any kind of person you want to be with, she's not going to be some domineering "ignore your schoolwork or I'll hate you!" type. Life's a balance.

    Hate to disagree with Giggly, but I do -- completely . It can be rare to find someone you're interested in and who is interested in you. Waiting "until the timing is right" is a surefire way to miss out on an opportunity to start something great. College isn't just about the schoolwork.

    I think this is a bad idea -- not as bad as telling her "I like you, but schoolwork comes first" (that's really bad), but it seems pretty likely that your window for actually asking her out will have expired by then. If you're seriously interested in pursuing something potentially non-platonic with this woman, take the first step sooner rather than later. It's not a lifelong (or even a semester-long) commitment at this point -- but miss that chance, and it's probably gone for good.

    Yes. All of the above. No one wants to say, "Oh I met some girl in college but I was too busy studying to find out if it would go any further." Well said! Studying should never be an excuse out of living life. Unless you aren't too great with school, you should be able to learn the information without having to designate a massive chunk of your time to it and miss out on other stuff.

    Humans aren't here because people chose study over reproduction. Your strategy is evolutionarily unfit, I'm afraid. You will always be busy with something: study, work, etc. etc.

    Let the extroverts reproduce! I've got books to read.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.
