    Default Always late...

    Which types are most likely to have a problem with being punctual and are always running late? Constantly making people impatient or angry about their chronic tardiness, becoming used to being accused about it and still not giving a shit. Or don't know how (nor care enough) to change.

    It might depend on upbringing and how much people care about the consequences in general. I am typically not late to things...max. 10 minutes if I am. Most people seem to get wrapped up doing other things instead of walking out their door. I don't think I'll ever continue cleaning my apartment in lieu of going somewhere else!

    I have an entire group of friends (of all types) who are *never* punctual. In fact, if you want to set up a group event, you have to tell them 2 hours earlier than the actual time, because that's how long it will take most of them to gather. I really don't get it.

    I assume that none of them are late to work.

    Haha! That's so me. You might catch me playing the guitar when I'm already late somewhere, or cutting my nails while people are waiting and yelling at me to hurry.

    I hate when people are late...just tell me another time if you've got things to do.

    You guys are kind of missing the point here. We're not talking about planned things, but more like things that come up out of nowhere. Which, let's face it, do happen, even in a literal sense. Like, for instance, I would be ready to set off, when something totally unexpected will happen. Like, I suddenly must go to the bathroom, or someone calls me on the phone, or I've forgotten something, or I can't find my keys, etc.

    I can be on time if its very important, but it's more customary for me to either be late or arrive early.

    This is also very true:

    ISTps are also a poor judge of time. They can lose track of how much time has past when they are doing something they are interested in. They might also ignore necessary obligations, because they are too busy taking care of themselves and their comforts and conveniences instead of thinking about the problems of the future. These can eventually catch up with the ISTp, and either his workload piles up or he lets deadlines pass. ISTps can become overly-anxious about being late while going somewhere, so sometimes they will be early just so they don’t have to worry about it.

    I can be scrupulously on time when I care about things. But most of the time I'm late. I really don't identify with that whole Ni = time craziness.

    Anyway, my IEE mom. Notoriously. Like, everyone who knows her notoriously (granted, when my brother and I were younger, it was normally our fault...).
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.

    Yes 'a ma'am that's pretty music...

    I am grateful for the mystery of the soul, because without it, there could be no contemplation, except of the mysteries of divinity, which are far more dangerous to get wrong.

    Alright. Shit happens, I know, but am able to make quick decisions. If, and only if, something is of lesser importance, than the thing I want to do or place I want to be at, I just have no or see no problem in disregarding it or putting it off. That said, I'm never late for me appointments, if, and only if, I already know me time invested in them, won't go to waste. I value the same in others.

    I think that's the key thing. I'm not really capable of making quick decisions. (Which does not apply to everything, but it applies in general.)

    Yeah, same. I understand that some people have a worse sense of time, but I can't help but thinking that it's a bit disrespectful. I'm talking of more than 20 minutes late here, not 10-15 minutes, which is usually the norm. Btw, I'm also talking about personal appointments. If it was a work setting, and I were to be a supervisor, I wouldn't care too much about timing unless it was always more than half an hour...

    i'm habitually late by about 15 minutes. it has to do with me not liking too much structure or control going on in my life. i need a lot of latitude. i tell people that i usually run late though, in advance. or, if i'm running late, i call them and let them know so hopefully they're not feeling too much like wtf.

    lateness is related to intuition and irrationality. my estp ex would go ballistic when i'd be running late. he couldn't stand it.

    And another who tends to be late.

    Believe it or not, the former is 9w8, the latter is 9w1
