    The INFJ will reflect idealism and a conceptual vision in their time management use.

    Another way of putting that is that the INFJ will work with traditional personal time management tools planning from the general, conceptual, first then to the specific.

    Actually, part of the INFJ's use of time management is to capture the details that so easily escape them (me, for example: I am INFJ). The technique is to work, as noted above, from the general to the specific.
