This is a discussion on Do you find "chores" to be a waste of your time? within the ENTJ Forum - The Executives forums, part of the NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects category; Originally Posted by bionic Come clean my house....
For me, chores (cleaning, washing dishes, bathing cat, etc) fall to the box that says 'those annoying things that you need to do anyway, so might as well do them', so no, avoiding it takes more time and effort than just plow through it. It's not duty, there's no 'loyalty' or 'belief' involved, they just need doing. (which is probably rather Sensor of me)
I like cooking, though.
I hate cleaning with a passion, but I also dislike clutter. I can't stand actual dirt. If my stuff is actually dirty or dusty, it will be cleaned immediately. If it's just clutter, I'll let it build until I get tired of it, then clean it all at once. I usually clean about once a month.
As far as mowing/exterior housecleaning goes, forget it. I rent now, so I don't have to worry about it. When I get my own house, I'll fill in my yard with rocks and pay someone to pressure wash the house.
I hate it, but do it. Needs to be done and I'm the only one capable. My complaint about it is that routine maintainence feels fruitless. You do it only to do it again. The same thing over and over again just to maintain normalcy. Nothing exciting about it.
Like @Vanitas, I do like cooking though. At least it involves an element of thought and creativity. Now if only I could figure out how to cook and not generate any dishes to wash...
If the first mass-produced robot isn't a cleaning robot...
There are ways to do that, none of which truly appropriate to show to any other person (except siblings, who usually already consider you slug incarnate anyway), including your spouse. Unless your spouse is also ENTJ, then maaaaybe.
