    But I....matter right? You see I used to not think that. Than I started hanging around brainwashing people and being too nice and believing them. I always act when I have to because....and then in the middle I realize if I'd just..... DDDDD; And I lose stuff I could have done. Oh, hurts.

    I am also an INTJ, I'm not exactly lazy however it is difficult to force myself to do something in which I lack interest in. It is essential for me to have a direction and a motive in order to function in a productive manner.

    You do matter, because you are the point, but you can't place value in the actual object, or your actual goal, but in yourself. And possibilities will dwindle, and you might not have chosen the appropriate one, but make note of it and keep your eyes forward.

    I wish I could hypnotize myself into doing what you just described well.

    I think you are putting too much on to this laziness. The more you speak and the more you elaborate the more it grows and seems unsurmountable. Just look at what is in front of you right now and focus. Not on what it could be, or what it means to you, but work with what actually exists in front of you.

    There is no rush, that makes it seem doubly worse.

    This is fantastic, that's what I've been doing .... for 2 year. XX"
    And than I discover what I've lost and...than I think more. Watch me live a worthless life.

    I can't do my work. It hurts. ><"

    Stupid thread...can't help it < doom
    This is not so much laziness as inertia. When I experience something similar, it is not because I am reluctant to do work and put out effort, but simply that when the project is large, I don't know where and how to start. The key lies in your later comment about being willing to tackle small activities but not large ones. You must turn the large activity into smaller, more manageable pieces by breaking it up into its component tasks and determining which sequence to perform them in. This analysis itself is the first small task. I find once I have done this, I am over the hurdle and can dive in and start working off individual subtasks.

    Put more briefly, it involves harnessing Te to make some external objective sense out of your Ni ideas, so they become more manageable and can actually be implemented.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    That's what I do but I get so nervous and unsure of what to do that it takes me so much longer. I start dreaming up fantasies that have nothing to do with it for some reason. As if I'm trying to escape. I even call this laziness. It's like this with everyone but so much worse with me. I think it's partial laziness because it I wasn't at all than I wouldn't care about putting in work for nothing because I'd fail not doing work either way. And I'd be willing to at least try. This means I'm a coward on top of it.

    Zhuli, aren't you still a teen? Teens are always relatively lazy compared to later in life, also later in life you become less lazy out of necessity.

    Also, lazy INTJs ain't got NUTHIN on a lazy INTP. So find some solace in that's

    I am 16.
    ....That disturbs me somehow. As if I'm lowering my standards. That's the worse thing that could happen because the me inside here knows what happens when I lower my standards for whatever reason. Mustn't do that. If I'm an excellent teen I'll be an even more excellent adult because it all adds up.
