    I prefer the burner analogy. I always have some things on the back burner and some things I am turning the heat up on. And they change.

    I just melted a plastic lid onto my burner.

    I would say the light switch is a very perceiving kind of thing. We respond directly to our environment, so if it stimulates us, we are so on. If it doesn't, meh.

    i like the burner analogy.
    it is also like shining a flashlight in a dark room - you can only see the area that the flashlight is pointed at. but it's easy to just move the flashlight, and point it at something else.

    starting new projects is always great. but it is also great to come back to an old project. sometimes if enough time has passed you can approach a project with fresh insight, and it is kind of like collaborating with yourself. you start a project, and then hand it off to another completely different part of yourself.

    i wonder what mix of things stimulates us. sometimes you are stimulated by what seems like nothing, or by some invisible hidden inspiration. then sometimes it seems like everything has coalesced and all signs point to inspiration, but for some reason it just doesn't happen. inspiration is a weird thing. it would probably be ruined if we could understand it, too.

    My ISTP bro (21) will be calmly sleeping on the couch doing nothing then decide to get up and jog the four kilometres to my stepmother's house. In the midday heat.

    Once in a while, he'd ask me to join him. I'd generally look at him like he was nuts. LOL

    I also have a similar approach. I like to strike when the urge hits or... it peters out. If that means extensively cleaning the entire flat at 3 AM, then so be it.

    Lightswitch. Especially with trusting people, but also with energy. Even my field hockey coach in college would comment on how I didn't seem to have a half speed.

    Yeah same here. If I care, I care. If I don't care, I don't care.

    If I don't care, don't expect much from me. I really don't care.

    If I care, expect 100% from me. Expect me to go all out while almost killing myself.
