    Default Which type tends to be the laziest?

    Keeping in mind that ANY of us can struggle with being lazy, which type if any tends to struggle the most with this? That is, often lacks initiative wrt setting up and accomplishing tasks of any kind?

    It's got to be some type of Ixxp. I've read support for ISFp, INFp, INTp, and ISTp each "being the laziest" - ie, to battle sloth on average wrt physical activity (getting up and MOVing). Which really needs that "jolt" from their dual in order set goals and/or to get moving the most? ISFp from ENTp? INTp from ESFp? Etc.?

    Have you ever known any ENFps who have successfully motivated you to get off your ass and move?

    :wink:

    And inspire you toward bigger and better things for yourself?

    Yeah, and the funny thing is , they usually don't even have to SAY anything. If it's a goal like knowing a martial art or a process like knowing japanese, and I have an interest in it but never got off my butt to do it, i usually get pretty motivated when I see someone doing it/speaking it.

    If I hang around em long enough, i'd be motivated to do pretty much anything. Now that I think about it, ENFp's are pretty bad ass!

    I wish I knew. Unfortunately the only things I've found to motivate me are uh..substances and other people pushing me to do things. I can't be bothered to do much unless someone pushes me.

    A few months back...hmmm, quite a few actually...one regular poster claimed to be ISFp for the main reason of being lazy.
    Even despite arguments that "isfp != lazy".

    A lot of people seem to think that Si = lazy. But I've known a number of SiXe people who do a lot of things, mostly physical in nature.

    Richard (SiFe) and I (NeFi) argue kind of regularly over who is lazier, he or I. I say I am lazier because I don't do much of the physical tasks around the home, nor have an outside job, nor have an outside job AND do the majority of the physical tasks at home. He says HE is lazier because he doesn't spend time expanding his mind nor his interests and doesn't like to study anything. It's a good relationship: I get to be "lazy" and do only limited housework tasks while spending a lot of time enjoying myself with a good book; He gets to be "lazy" and just focus on getting various chores/tasks done without having to fight with the books.

    ISxps need leisure time, and that can be seen as laziness by others, but I don't think that's a fair characterization. When something important needs to be done, they will work very hard until it is finished.

    lol it's kind of funny... I can see where I'd be called lazy in some situations (my off time I like nothing better than to laze about) but when I'm working somewhere I always take on the backbone role and get comments and praise about being a speed demon and doing the work of three or four normal people. That along with (not to toot my own horn *toot* *toot*) above average intelligence and people skills makes it really easy and natural for me to move up at anywhere I work. I don't try, in fact alot of times I try to hide it, but they always seem to relise it eventually and start pressuring/moving me up the ladder. I almost resent it once that happens, but as long as I'm settled into a position I'm happy and 99% of the time uber-productive, no matter at what level it is. lol I've actually had managers and higher-ups pull me aside and suggest that I slow down a bit because I'm cheating myself out of money by doing things in a quarter of the time that they're willing to allocate for them to be done.

    Anyways, so I guess I'm lazy in that I serriously try to avoid making things "happen" or furthering my position. But I'm not at all lazy in that when I'm settled into a position I'll happily work like crazy man.

    Yeah i agree. Ive gotta be up there for lazyiness. I will get up and do a lot of stuff but 95% of it is for my own enjoyment, movies, going out, downloading things. When i interract with people etc i often put in 100% of my efforts so thats tiring. But yeah im pretty damn lazy for any house chores.

    My ISTj dad and ISFj mum = not lazy.

    me and my INFp sister are really fucking lazy, I've noticed we use strategies to provide the illusion that we're not though (i.e. only cleaning room when having people over -and by cleaning room I mean hiding the mess under the bed or in the closet)

    If I told you today that I was going to do something i.e. finish my driver's license, get a full-time job, it should not be taken to mean that I am going to do it today, but rather that in the forseeable future when it's sufficiently convenient for me to do such I might partake in these things. I remember when I was 15 I couldn't wait to turn 16 so I could get my driver's license and drive around! ...now I'm 22 and I'm going to get it, really, I am...

    Also when people tell me that I "should" do something I find it secretly pleasurable to agree with them but then go out of my way to avoid doing said thing, lol

    not lazy here, i just like moving

    but my definition of lazy is personalized.

    say i find very lazy those people that spend their days doing homework, whereas others see them as "hard-working students", whereas i don't find lazy people that play soccer on the streets all day

    I consider myself lazy. Sometimes I'm motivated, but I can never tell when that will be. Anything routine and/or boring is tough to do.

    I think ISFPs and ISTPs can look lazy when in a relaxation state. But they're not actually lazy at all. ENFJs can sometimes go into a lazy state. But I think that's necessary to balance out the over-achievement. ESFPs I think can be pretty lazy, but it's usually when hung over. INFJs can need a lot of time to do lazy-related things. But then they have those schedules the rest of the time...so not that lazy actually.

    Come to think of it, I think some times might appear lazy, but most actually aren't.
    Hi! I'm an ENFP. :-)

    I would say that the laziest type is INTp. I'm ILI and I'm really lazy. Both physically and intellectually, because I hate to study things that I'm not interested in at the moment. I actually hate to do anything that I don't enjoy. Like cooking ordinary dishes. When my mum asks me for help in the kitchen I'm like 'May go to room, pleeeaaase' 'cause it's sooo boring...

    Indeed. All Ip's are in general lazy, but INTp's not only suffer from natural tendency to fly off into land, any attempt from an INTp to force a change in their environment is met by all forms of mental resistance. ISxp's may complain about being lazy, but ultimately they end up doing things that are in their interest. INTp's may have trouble even following up on anything except their deep routine interests- they have very little "momentum" or willpower to do anything besides watch the world go by. INFp's, even though they are accepting, are generally more active than INTp's. They have very weak and an PoLR.

    Laziness as in not actively seeming to do much of anything? Umm imo that would be INFj/INTj first and foremost, two types with a PoLR. They're not like this by choice though they really just can't help it.

    My INFp friends THINK they are lazy and act like it, but they always go to work everyday, and can even do jobs pretty well, as they value that function. My INTj/INFj friends on the other hand, always look for the work where they can be the most laziest as possible.

    The laziness/action in each quadra tends to balance itself out really well. Each type has the most active type that takes most care of the physical world (such as ESFjs in the alpha quadra)

    There's more ways you could look at this. You can be very hyper and not seem to get much done, like the ENTp. Or you could be like bionicgoat (the ISFp) and seem really relaxed and lazy but work hard when it needs to be done the most. I'd say if you use the internet a lot (and I mean a lot), unless you're handicapped, you're most likely an INTj/INFj/INFp/ultra-curious ENFp anyway. Really, pretending you're a tough, extroverted go-getter because you... I don't know what, is cute and all, but actions speak a louder type than words. Since it's so much easier to mistake somebody for some sort of IJ or IP type on the net, I want pics of you being all gangsta ish or it didn't happen and I'll just think ur some sort of common-as-hell INTj nerd.
