    This sounds more like an outward P expression and an inner J experience. I can relate as an INFP. I have an ideal of a “plan” internally but outwardly you may as well just see a blank stare or no communication of said plan.

    To be honest I as a judger feel envy, that you percievers have control over your inner terrain. Structured, clear and beautiful environment saves my energy and helps me to focus. But there are others in the outside world, who don’t have the same preferences as do. That feeling of not having contol is quite stressful. (just an experience of an INFJ mum)

    I’ve always been amazed at an ISTJ I work withs ability to resume a task immediately when coming back to it. Complex task and just back from a 2 week vacation? Doesn’t matter, he’s going right away with no ramp up time. It’s like a computer in sleep mode and he just wakes it up ready to go where as I need to boot up and reopen all programs every time.

    I’m an INFP who prefers the physical environment to be organized, clean, and clutter free so that my time can be as unstructured as possible.

    Not sure what to make of that!
