    I think you mean ISTJ's. ^^

    "Life tasks" don't run my life, never will. "Busy" is not something I aspire to. I prepare so I don't have to keep working at it. I outsource many tasks (weekly house cleaning, grocery shopping, lawn care) and the rest can be done as needed. My attire isn't fussy, I keep my closet organized and I like doing laundry and cooking myself.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Accrue resources --> hire services/ help = the TJ way.

    I have long considered hiring a cleaning service, but I don't trust strangers to be in my house.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I am not sure about that. Since most TJs are "If you want to do something right you have to do it yourself" kind of people. (at least in my part of the world that is the case)

    That's me for sure, I cant delegate for shit because I have doubts about people.

    Also have similar reservations about leaders and authorities too. So much disappointment.

    I try to use to do lists to get all my stuff done but I always plan the night before more stuff than there seems time in one day to accomplish.

    I can do that but I am often just too cheap to spend my money on some kind of services.

    I had to get over that issue. But I've used the same company for almost a decade now and I'm generally home or my husband is home when they're here. Even if I wasn't home I would feel good about it, they're excellent.

    That's also my feeling but I had much less of a choice when I broke my foot awhile back. It was either hire someone or live in a pigsty. This is also when I really learned the importance of delegating - I can't believe I resisted that for so long.

    I was kinda joking, but one of my TJ friends pays $100 every two weeks for a cleaning lady to come just so that he can relax and not have to constantly worry about cleaning. He seems to really enjoy the freedom because efficiency.

    On the other hand, I would have similar hesitations as you

    True, but then they are also really about efficiency and prioritizing what needs to be. So while keeping everything tidy and neat would be the ideal for most TJs, the return on investment to do it all by yourself could be deemed as insufficient. This is because time and resources could used elsewhere.

    Sorry, but as I said in my post: this doesn't work like this in my part of the world. (unless maybe if you are "filthy rich")
    The only exception is perhaps gardening, but that isn't too common either. Here cleaning and arranging is regarded as an exercise, so that you don't have to pay jim.
