    I am extremely perfectionist in terms of action, however; everything must always be clearly researched and defined before I attempt anything so that I can eliminate even the slightest probabilities of freak accidents (or at least have the majority of good results on my side, so that I can take the risk of not detailing everything). I don't take action until I know everything and have the needed power to ensure my optimum result. (This magnifies by 300% when I'm refining the vision with Fi instead of Te. My Ni-Fi loop can be absolutely chronic and can lead me to question even 99% success rates of certain actions.)
    This isn't 1, this is 5. At least according to Naranjo.

    Naranjo says both 1 and 5 are perfectionist but 1 is directly action oriented and 5 is always preparing and preparing and blahblahblah. And 5 is avoidant of tedious work. Just like you describe it here :P

    My opinion is one of deliberation.

    I am in accordance with the assertion that the 5 plans extensively yet is too cautious and doubting to ever put any of their plans into action (which would be the epitome of my planning, actually).

    Then there is the plausibility of 4, which I have mistyped as before and which integrates to Type 1 during healthy self-actualization, explaining my mistyping as a 1 and also some underlying intense emotionalism that arises somewhat melancholicly.

    The only thing that is of certainty now I presume is that I possess a 5 and a 4 fixation.
