Sounds like you're a T :OThank you all for your thoughtful replies.
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?
