And how, exactly, would I be doing that - knowing you so well as I do?You seem to share an alarming number of my traits, regardless of what type you are. Are you sure you're not trying to make yourself sound like me on purpose?
What I find interesting is that we're so apparently similar, yet you're convinced you're a J and J/P is the one axis I'm most without clue on.
You're going ot have to explain to me how avoiding obligations = introverting perception. Actually, while I fully understand hoe judging could be extraverted (doing/changing/implementing) or introverted (analysing/investigating/organising conceptually), I don't really get what introverted perception is supposed to be. Perception, by nature, should be something that connects to the outside world?and introvert perception (avoiding obligations ahead of time rather than blowing them off later on when they become inconvienent).
It's less stressful for me to let an opportunity pass because I waited too long to make a decision than to be forced to make a decision before I'm ready to do so. I'm more likely to regret locking myself into something prematurely than I am to regret missing an opportunity.I do, too... unless I feel that I might lose something if I wait.
This is also very true of me. Introversion messes with things a bit, though - Js implement/do, act on their ideas and convictions, but EJs are a lot more inclined to do so, particularly when it involves other people, because they're outwardly and people focused more than are IJs. IJs, however, do differ from IPs in that an IJ will conceptualise and be driven to implement their ideas, whereas an IP is more of an observer, happy to understand and not implement. One thing that is said of INTPs, at least, is that they're happy knowing that they could do something, and feel no need to actually do it.My attitude is more "stay out of the way and don't get involved," most of the time. I mostly try to just keep to myself and take care of the aspects of a situation that concern me, like the tasks I've been assigned, etc.
Also, because J is active in this way, Js may be more interested in what is practical, what works, and so forth, in their theorising. Ps, being perceivers, are more interested in truth. At least, this is supposed to be true of INTJ and INTP, the two types I've researched most thoroughly, it may not be generalisable. But INTJ allegedly asks 'does it work?', and discards what doesn't, whereas INTP asks 'is it true?'
