    Default Do you like being called lazy?

    I'm pretty sure all of us SPs have been called 'lazy' at one point (especially if you had SJ parents). Does it personally bother you?

    Personally, I'm not bothered when people call me lazy. Chances are, deep down inside, I'm probably more content with myself and my life than they are.

    Haha, I couldn't care less.
    Fact is, I am as lazy as it gets and I don't see why this should be a bad thing. Yeah, I know, it's a sin bla bla bla, but I'm fine with it.

    Even lazy as I am, I still get my stuff done.

    if I agree with their assessment, then no I don't like it. I don't think laziness is a good thing (though conservation of energy, maaaybe).

    I am remarkably lazy and it's a major obstacle for me.

    Lazy? Nope. Know how to relax. Yup.

    I don't -like- it, per se, but I guess I don't mind it. Although I started to interchange the word "efficient" when I describe myself as "lazy" thanks to a conversation I had with Bamboo a while back. I called myself lazy and he called himself efficient. And I thought that was the most brilliant reclassification ever.
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    I don't tend to get called lazy because I have a high energy level and am rather active when I AM active... but I've been called unmotivated on many occasions!

    I can relate to this.

    It's a fine line between productivity and ambition. I don't much care for ambition but I'd like to be more productive. I'd like to be able to tap into my motivation much easier than I currently do.

    There are worse insults than "lazy." That one just doesn't bother me at all.
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    I'm not lazy, my priorities are just different. I'm not overly concerned with the expectations of others (unless they're paying me) and will enthusiastically give them the finger and then go back to doing my own thing because it's my thing, I'm doing it, they don't need to understand or approve, fuck off.

    Just because I look like I'm not doing anything it doesn't mean I'm not doing anything. I've got a brain. Shirking physical duties doesn't mean I'm being lazy. It just means I'm just doing something else.
