    Default ENTps how do you do your work?

    ILE, please describe how you work. Do you use calendars, plan, structure your work; are you meticulous or scattered? Does your style carry into other parts of your life in HOW you do things?

    I've thought about this quite a bit, since I've been working a while.

    Obviously only speaking for myself. I'm quite chaotic....Many irons in the fire all at once. Inevitably they are all related in my mind and part of a grand scheme that others may not immediately understand. work is driven by a mission of improvement for everybody, staff, consumers, and organization. Tendency to pick underdog projects and lift them up into respectability and acceptance. Intense cognitive planning and preference for doing the thinking myself, but involving others at points and getting buy-in.

    Having said all that and looking at it, prolly describes almost anybody, so not sure if it helps.

    ILE

    those who are easily shocked.....should be shocked more often

    Yeah, but how do you approach and execute your work; let's say from the beginning, like you want to write a book; how would you go about doing it?

    Steps to writing a book:
    1. Think for a few hours of the best sounding title
    2. Write an outline
    3. Write a prioritized to do list for the book
    4. Ignore the list and keep on thinking about cool ideas to have in the book
    5. Revise the outline
    6. Think about possibilities for a better title
    7. Touch a pen to the paper
    8. Get distracted
    9. Try to find the pen that I just lost
    10. Search awhile for another pen
    11. Write one paragraph
    12. Get distracted
    13. Forget about the book writing
    14. Find my to do list a week later under a bunch of clutter
    15. Feel really guilty that I said I was going to write a book but didn't follow through
    16. Tell myself that I will do it later but really I know I lost all motivation in book writing
    17. Find the paragraph that I wrote a year later and start back at step one

    I just do whatever the person pretending importance told me to do. When I didn't, I got fired or quit.

    My observations about successful, effective, and also unquestionable ILEs (e.g., who are are both ILE and also ENTP in other systems, as opposed to people who may be Socionically ILE according to some definitions but with ambiguous type overall) is that while they're less structured than (say) LIE or LII, they succeed because they don't dig themselves too deep in anything. In other words, they wouldn't spend all their time becoming an expert on something that it turns out nobody cares about anyway. They do "enough" on something to make it work and no more. Their stuff suggests some sort of inner logic, but they don't work to refine that to the nth degree, so they can move on to the next thing. This becomes a real strength compared to LIIs and ILIs, but they may be considered superficial in comparison.

    They may not be great at organizing, but if they're out of the house impressing everyone with their great intellectual talk, they're not there messing it up. So they can actually be fairly neat.
