    Default SJs, do you like repetitive activities?

    Supposedly SJs like repetitive jobs. Myself, I get bored with them, but I'm definitely very good at them.

    Yeah, you could say I do, actually. It applies to a lot of things in my life.

    I love techno music, which often gets criticized for being too repetitive.

    I don't like it when I have to leave Lakeland; I would prefer to just stay there, and I don't have much interest in traveling to new places.

    I always pick Bowser in Mario Kart.

    Really, I just like a lot of unity in my life, and have variety only come in as a novelty, or just in smaller amounts.

    I hate doing things over and over again! I get bored way too easily. What would be good is to have a job that changed venue every two months or something.

    I do not like repetitive activities. I like to know information about the activities before I do them, but that just means I like predictability. That doesn't mean I like repetition.

    I guess it depends on how you look at it. My roommate (ESTP) is always criticizing how predictable I am and how I always seem to have this routine, whereas I'm not constantly thinking about what I do or what he does.

    I don't like repetitive activities- especially at work. While I like some predictability, and a rountine around what I do, I need variety and the ability to think and go with the flow as well.

    Being an SJ doesn't mean I'm a robot.

    I like variety.

    However, i will play a particular computer game for hours just to get the high score ..

    I would not say I like them... I feel bored too; however, I prefer a boring job over a stressful one. Just my personal choice based on knowing myself and knowing that most jobs are either boring or stressful, one of the two, and I do better with boredom than stress in a job overall.

    I couldn't agree more. If it's a choice between a boring, less stressful job VS. a very interesting, highly stressful job, then I would take the boring one every time. My goal is to avoid responsibility and stress.
