    Judging over Perceiving?

    Is it better to be a J over a P?

    Generally speaking Js are more likely to jump at opportunities, take advantages of situations and are really more action type person.

    Ps, although have their upsides, but really the only advantage is to not to make hasty decisions that end up as bad decisions or mistakes. Often I blame my P-ness (no pun intended) for consistently being stuck on analysis paralysis in various aspects of my life.


    What say you?!

    do note: started this thread on a whim, to flex my J muscles.

    I'm quite sure you're mixed up; is it not a P trait to go on whims and do something? I know I am a J and I would consider the outcome of any topic before creating one and do not generally rush into things.

    (This is meant as joke, don't take it seriously)
    Instant J/P test:
    1. Clean up your room as you would wish.
    2. Call for friend OR family member OR somebody else.
    3. List 5 things they have to find in your room.
    If they will find everything, you are probably J or they seem to know your style of mess. So let's give it a time limit.
    First YOU have to try to find it. If they will find it later than you, you are probably P.
    (/joke)

    So... J/P thing is just about how do you tend to organize things. Wait, not only about that... it determines your functions. Yep, you will be:
    More Harmonizing or Bossy when J
    More Fun or Imaginative when P (actually that one with Imaginative... well, let's be quiet about it for a while).

    J's have everything more organized.

    So... I'm guessing the INFP is more imaginative than the ENFP and conversely less fun. So I take it the ENFJ more bossy, and the INFJ is more harmonizing?

    I didn't said anything like "Nx is more imaginative than Ny", that's why I have said something in style "let's not talk about it".
    And about bossy... ENFJ is not bossy, TJ is bossy. It was just quick description, because I had no time.

    I would rather be a P than a J.

    From what I've seen, with my J friends I find them to be very rigid which in our modern society works very well.

    However, when crap falls apart and immediate decisiveness is needed to remedy a situation Js fall flat on their face.

    I believe that one or the other is bad. 100% of either leaves an overly rigid fool or a flighty non focused person. A mixture of both is where one will succeed.

    However, I've found it easier as a P to incorporate J planning and execution into my life. If crap happens, I'm incredibly flexible and can think my way through new scenerios relatively quickly. With my girlfriend when things don't work out the way she planned, she freaks out and can't function to save herself.

    Generalizations aside, with time and maturity anyone can have P flexibility with J decisiveness.

    Neither is better than the other.

    Both have upsides and downsides.
