    Tried setting goals for a while. Didnt work out so well since before i reached them i usually got bored of the subject and forgot about them. Even if i had written it down i would forget what it was.

    Time management? Hmm... is there even such a thing :p
    No forward planning and only things that i know a "deadline" is very close get done. Otherwise they can wait as long as they need to until i find im up for doing it.

    This is the biggest problem I have with my husband. He makes me feel like a "J" by comparison. (And that's saying something!) Even procrastinates things he's looking forward to doing. (I can't believe he was on time to our wedding!) And like ZaRocks said, if you nag them, even a little it just makes them all the more resistant....

    Did he tell you he was looking forward to the wedding?
    Use logic when nagging. "The sooner we have our wedding, the sooner our honeymoon will come."
    Bam, he'll be dressed and in the car waiting on YOUR slow ass.

    And for contrast the INFP way (at least this INFP)

    Set goal.
    Think about goal.
    Do something more interesting while thinking about what needs to be done.
    Feel guilty
    Do it. (Finally)
    Wonder why I didn't do it sooner.

    Yes he was looking forward to the wedding...and I think you pretty much hit the nail on the head. ;)

    The thought of a wedding makes me wanna hurl. Why would I want people to watch me profess my love? That's a terrible idea. I dunno maybe its different when you're actually up there.

    My husband's got a pretty strong F side to him I think...at least compared to most ISTP that I've known/read about. Maybe that has something to do with it.

    I'm OK at setting goals, but doing them is tends to be another story (I tend to always put things of to the last minute which rarely works with goals). I think the problems in the past has been just setting the goals and not reviewing them often (i.e. I'd make a word doc up with my goals for the year and then never look at again for a long while). This year I'm giving myself a more constant reminder of them - reading them most mornings and sticking them up in visible spots at home i.e. bedroom, work desk, fridge etc.

    I'm an INFP and can completely get your methodology. Like you, I think I'm even more organized that this guy....which is frightening! To confirm your response, I completely forgot I set up this thread....have been doing all kinds of other things...
