For some reason, it seems like discipline tends to be associated with . After much typing confusion centering around and individuals, I had an idea.
doesn't appear do anything it doesn't currently want to do. Note that often has a lot of resolve, forcefulness, etc., but it is always directed towards a goal desired in the immediate moment. In contrast, will force itself to do things it will dislike or is not in the mood for, provided those tasks are required by some set of standards or are expected to pay off in the future. This kind of makes the "getting things done" function.
This seems to make sense in light of the whole J/P thing, and it fleshes out my understanding of a bit more, a function which I previously found difficult to conceive of as anything more than 's idiot cousin. This is mainly because most descriptions I've read seem to amount to "memorizes gigantic lists of facts without bothering to understand them and blindly plugs them into situations that seem related." The alternate and/or additional idea I just described seems to make much more sense overall than the descriptions mentioned.
