    Lightbulb You SJs are so organized and DISCIPLINED. What's your secret??

    Blackberries? To-do lists? Rewards of porn vids when you do right? Flogging yourself in your closet if you do wrong? Adderall? Polyphenols?? Come on, there's SOMETHING you guys are in on. I need your Amish DISCIPLINE. :workout:

    I know one like this, who tells himself to 'just do it', and it works... I tried, and it wont work.

    A fear of being thought of as useless or unreliable does it for me.

    Though I'd say I'm a far cry from what I'd like to be as far as discipline goes...

    I just don't like being stressed. The feeling of peace is a big motivator for me to have things in order. So I make sure things are done on time, etc. because then I don't have unnecessary problems and stress.

    Incidentally, my husband is an ENTP. My impression is that it is easier for him to be organised when he feels that what he is doing is personally meaningful to him.

    INTJs are the most disciplined and organized people I've met. Along with ESXJs. The introverted SJs are not as disciplined and the extroverted ones which is quite strange.

    And it must be the de-stress factor Gerbah mentioned. Having a ESTJ father made me realize this.

    I just do what I say, and say what I'll do.

    I like to set goals for myself, and don't stop until I reach them. Plus I'm extremely practical when it comes to setting goals. I hate to-do lists though the rebel within me makes me want to not follow the list.

    Depends...my ISTJ friend is very disciplined, very organized and she is without a doubt an introvert. On the other hand I'm not as disciplined or as organized as she is even though I am personally a fairly organized person.

    I've asked my ISTJ roommate about this once before: I was trying to convince him to hang out with me, waste some time with me, etc. He said he would, except he knew he'd kick himself for it later if he were tired, or if he had to stay up late to get his work done, or whatever. He's much more future consequence focused than I am. Probably why he usually kicks my ass in chess.

    My organisational skills are becoming more relaxed through the years. I don't know what my secret is .. But if i am not organised then i don't worry too much.

    Disciplined .. Only with money, my emotions and cleaning up the house after a long day at work .. I'd just rather do the mundane then relax.
