    I am questioning whether or not I'm an SJ after all. I'm not all that decisive. Decisions are quite important to me, and I put a lot of thought into the choices I make (depending on how important the decision being made is). I've been finding myself thinking about the term "analysis paralysis", and how well that describes the way I make decisions.

    I can't just make a snap choice, because it's pretty well guaranteed to be wrong. I must sift through data first, analyzing and then reanalyzing over and over again. I "make up my mind" several times before finally reaching a decision. The process is often upsetting, and most certainly draining, but in the end, I take pride in how methodical I am when I need to be. I am absolutely excellent with money, for example. I never buy anything on a whim.

    Yet, with less important choices, I'm incredibly laid back. My response to the unknown is to try anything once. I love trying new things, and I am incredibly curious. If a choice won't have lasting, enduring ramifications, I just go for it! It's fun!

    My friends say that I'm an "extremist", I either go all out or not at all. I bet it looks that way on the outside, but I'm most certainly not a fickle person. I'm just constantly changing my mind depending on the data I currently have at hand.

    Is this the SP way of thinking?
    Sounds like you're a T :O

    Doesn't sound like a SP way to me. I'm like the rest, I fly by the seat of my pants.

    I keep trying to do that, but I can't get off the ground. Maybe I need to try some different pants.

    I really am a SP!

    Although, I don't even realise I'm hungry in the first place... kay, scrap that.



    Think it's pretty safe to say you're not a SP Miss Murder

    Yeah SPs do make "snap choices" all the time Miss murder that you said you don't do. We don't really think about it too much... we quickly simplify and decide the best option.

    Yeah, like my snap choice was to hit "quote" on Luke's post and tell him:

    NER NER NER NER NER NER NER NER NER NER

    NER NER NER

    NER NER NER NER NER

    NER NER

    See? Didn't think about that too much.

    Depends on my mood. Sometimes I can make fast decisions, other times my mind just goes blank during decision-time and I just go, "uhmmm...errrrr... uhmmm...." Like this past weekend. Go on a last minute three day trip and blow off all the work I have to do, or stay home and do the work. I had so much work to do that the right choice was obvious. It took me forever to decide. I decided on the trip. I didn't really think it through at all, I just sat there with my thumb up my ass for a while, with no thoughts, and then said. "alright, screw it i'll go."
