    Default Would I be J or P or neither?

    I don't mean to bring up an old topic, but I would just like to know what everyone thinks. Am I J or P or neither? I know I don't lean strong either way. I look at the characteristics from J and P, and I realize... I have a few from both columns. Then I look at the descriptions of ISTJ and ISTP, and realize that I'm not completely like either one. I usually switch back and forth between J and P, so I wanted to know which one I was (or if I was neither). Here are a few points:

    - I like having fun.
    - If I don't need to work hard to get a project/job done, then I won't.
    - When I'm stressed to get something done, I usually get energized and intense and get bursts of energy to get the job done. I block everything out and am very intense.
    - I can be organized but I'm generally average as far as organization goes. I'm often too lazy to put things in "proper places" but I usually know where to find things.
    - I have a short attention span (especially when I don't need to do work) and I am often restless.
    - I'm in between as far as planning an on-the-go goes. I make To-Do Lists for things I have to do in the morning, but I generally don't stick to them (I forget to make them often).
    - I'm a laid back guy for the most part. I would be very happy if I had no work to do at all.
    - I'm very competitive, I always want to win everything I get into.
    - If I don't like a job, I usually try to get it done quickly.
    - If I try to work on something that's due in a long time, I don't learn it as well because I'm not as pressured.
    - I like some decisions to be made immediately, but others not for a while.
    - I can spend hours wasting time.
    - I like to get the job done and over with if it's not a fun one.
    - I don't like getting up early to go somewhere or do something that's not fun.
    - I generally dislike strict authority (authority that isn't me lol).
    - I am dedicated, persevering, and motivated but I don't have much focus, particularly if it's not necessary.

    Is it possible that I'm neither because I dont have

    I'm not too comfortable giving away this much information, but it will help me. Thanks.

    Sounds very SP to me. When you read general descriptions of the SJ and SP temperaments, which one do you relate to more?

    I'm looking at them, and I think SJ is too rigid/strict, while SP is too balls-out.

    Haha.

    I read that SJ's are dependable, and at the same time, I'm not really dependable.

    I read that SP's are risky, but I'm more cautious.

    I'm P but I am careful about things that I feel are really important.

    I've wondered whether ISTPs can be more cautious than their descriptions say, or than the descriptions of SPs. But posts from ISTPs here usually don't reflect this.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    A lot of the "getting stuff done and out of the way" sounds very J. The times were you procrastinate because you don't feel the effort is necessary isn't necessarily P, either.

    I'd say middle-of-the-road J.

    He is entirely right. Take the type descriptions with a grain of salt. I am a very well rounded F, I usually score 51% biased toward F.

    From reading your posts you sound like a very well rounded SJ.

    I actually think I'm a J when I'm working, and a P when I'm not. I like to consider that a great blend.

    Thanks for the responses so far, keep em coming.
