    Default IEIs/INFps are you efficient? do others call you efficient?

    Do you consider yourself to be efficient.

    If you find it hard to anwer this question then answer this one:
    Do (for example) colleague's of you, call you efficient?

    I'm not obsessed with efficiency like my ESE husband is. I think I'm pretty efficient when I want to be. But my attention isn't fixated on that goal, no. But when I have a deadline, I never miss it. I know how to plan my time so that it gets done.

    By efficient do you mean am I exceptional at obtaining the maximum output for the minimum input? (traditional definition, if so, then yes)

    or

    Exceptional at obtaining the maximum output for the maximum input (New Age definition, if so, then no)

    I meant the first one.

    So it would mean you are efficient.

    The nice thing is, I've got an INFP friend who also considers himself to be efficient, which he probably also is.

    But isn't efficiency linked to Te? The conclusion I like to draw is that this is a weakness of using information elements.

    Efficient: 1.performing or functioning in the best possible manner with the least waste of time and effort; having and using requisite knowledge, skill, and industry; competent; capable: a reliable, efficient secretary.

    I don't see myself as efficient nor do I think that an IEI can generally be efficient. Maybe in short sprints he/she can use the time as well as possible but as a general rule.... I believe IEI are time wasters. I flow through time, don't grab, just flow.

    Effective: 1.adequate to accomplish a purpose; producing the intended or expected result: effective teaching methods; effective steps toward peace.

    Effective is another issue. IEIs can be effective if they are properly motivated (or at least I think I am or can be effective in the tasks I consider important)
