    Intuitive types getting less things done than Sensing types?

    Hi there,

    I have always been typed as an intuitive. Whether INFP (dichotomy tests), INTP ENTP INFJ or INTJ (cognitive functions tests).

    I used to be satisfied with this aspect of my personality UNTIL I realized it was actually a fucking handicap to getting things done because I always feel the need to keep my options so open that I end up having none.

    Who else also experiences their Ni or Ne as a burden ? How so ?

    What tactics do you use to override your intuitive preference in order to experience the world with your five senses ?

    I'm either wandering in the future, or thinking back on the past. But rarely experiencing present moments. I think way too much on what could be, what could have been, and have difficulty fully concentrating when someone talks to me. A word of their's will remind me of something else, I'll start brainstorming without willingly wanting to and lose five minutes of the present.

    Sounds like a Ne thing; Ni actually seems to narrow the field of options more quickly. As for getting things done, I think that's more a matter of the judging functions: Te and Fe for acting on the world, and Ti and Fi for more internalized activity (e.g. contemplation).

    I think we need both approaches in order to get the RIGHT things done. Some situations call for quick decision-making, while other situations call for more caution and deliberation. My advice would be to seek out opportunities in life that call for carefully exploring all the options. And when you find yourself in situations that call for a more decisive approach, be willing to defer to those who do that well. IMO there is no need to see your set of cognitive functions as a handicap, unless both of two things occur: (1) people tell you it's a handicap, and (2) you let them convince you
