    I forgot if there is already a name

    If there isn't, one could be -- "rhythm"?

    The word "rhythm" is a good one, because it points to the essential core of this dichotomy. Rational J types and irrational P types have different life rhythms, and that's one of the reasons I have thought that that same difference could perhaps be reflected in different day and night cycles as early birds or night owls. Besides this difference in life rhythms there is also other differences in "life rhythms" between the four temperaments (EJ, IJ, EP, and IP). They are similar in some respects but not identical to the general difference in life rhythm between J types and P types.

    I used Rigidity/Flexibility for a while, but now I use Judging/Percieving.

    yes but now i would like to have a name for the category that holds judging and perceiving.
    like attitude is the catagory that contains both introversion and extraversion.

    But reading your use of the word Flexibility reassures me of being on the right path.

    Stability?
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    well organisation seems to be most close to what i'm looking for.

    organisation of reality.

    rational: outlining, borders
    irrational: freely perceiving

    yes somehow it makes sense. :wink:

    That seems to be the kind of word Jung would have used....

    I like it.

    Theory vs. practice.

    Combined 'rationality'.

    "Theory vs. practice" is very misleading as an explanation of the J/P dichotomy. It is not about that at all. It is not a conscious thing. It is a biological phenomenon that you can't influence but which influences all your actions.
