    *sigh* One of these days, my desk will be all neatly organized, and all files will be labelled. If I manage to do that, it will take me far longer than a truly organized person to accomplish, and it will stay all nice and neat for exactly... 2 days.


    The closest I got to a workable system is GTD. I learned a lot and still use some of the stuff.

    An organized and efficient system seems like my holy grail.

    same here, so I'll hazard a shot at this.. its the inferior Te + the Introverted leading Fi and an extraverted parenting function maybe cause the Ti+Ne combination does the same for me as opposed to the Ni+Te of an INTJ.. an INTJ = perfectly organized desk, folders, bookmarks,... books, letters, files, folders (hard copies)... clothes, shoes ... seemingly ad infinitum

    close?

    *coughs* My desk is hardly spotless. I have piles of paper and stacks of books everywhere. Not to mention the dust bunnies that gather in little used corners...

    Stuff on computer/web I do like to tag and place into folders though. But that's only because I wouldn't be able to find them otherwise. If I can find stuff without that I wouldn't have bothered.

    Maybe some S types don't like thinking in abstract terms because they find it boring, not because they can't. I know I find dry, overly intellectual discussions to be quite dull and uninspiring so I do my best to avoid them. That doesn't mean I can't engage in that kind of discussion, I just would have to try harder to stay awake.

    So it's not that S types are incapable of being intuitive, they just subconsciously (or perhaps consciously) prefer to engage their senses.

    But I do think that magical, little N makes some people feel insightful, spiritual, "deeper" than the perceived S stereotype. I sometimes wonder if there are some S types on this board that mistype themselves as N just so they can "fit in and feel special".
    Yeah. Great post.
