    Default ENTps downplaying the importance of planning and scheduling

    ILEs and friends, family, and co-workers of ILEs, do most ILEs seem to downplay the importance of planning, scheduling things ahead of time, and being organized about future events, confirming things, and the like?

    I know a few like this and considered it as a part of preferring to be lax about definite plans in order to allow for more unexpected events to come up but I also see it in dealing with obligations when multiple projects are going on in a given time frame and then forgetting about one thing or confirming or changing plans at the last minute.

    I think they're okay with being pretty loose about plans, which is nice. True flexibility is always appreciated. (by me)

    I plan, but not in a "At 12:02 I'm going to eat lunch, at what point I will return by 12:43 and commence work on this tax billing portfolio...." kind of way. I plan in a, "I could do x, y, or z. If x happens, I'll do b or maybe I'll have time to do a...."

    It's like I consider all the possibilities and have a rough outline, but am also very open to things that just "come up".

    I don't plan, I tentatively plan. I.e I put stuff on a calender then proceed to forget about them.

    I think it might also be related to e-type, e.g. my SLE E7 bf refuses to commit to plans and it drives me nuts. I think E7 is the most common for ILEs.

    I plan a lot. It mostly involves something I can procrastinate away by planning something new to amuse myself.

    I was supposed to:
    Stop drinking
    Meet my fuckbuddy today
    Apologize every woman I have hurt
    Start building my life for seducing Lady Gaga
    Buy food, not drugs
    Start routinely exercising
    Translate a certain book on regulated drug policies
    Start a blog
    Meet a few relatives
    Get my passport from the police station
    Buy LSD in bulk
    Buy a computer
    Save money
    Go pick up psychoactive mushrooms
    Stop ejaculating
    Practice magic more

    So far I have done none of those

    My plans that come true are more like "that might be fun if opportunity arises" than something I should be doing.
    Schedule doesn't belong to my dictionary.

    I think I spend most of my life planning things in a way that I can procrastinate on a million other things...

    ILE and planning? IDK, they aren't good at it; they are better at not being hooked on any kind of schedule.

    My ENTp buddies seem to make self-rules to adhere to, but they seldom actually follow any specific plan. When they do, they rarely follow through, which is usually endearing and sometimes annoying =p

    ILEs do not plan ahead very much. ILEs improvise. Improvisation does not mean sloppiness. Only those who have worked hard can do it.

    Lol, in the movie "Hot Shots 2: war in the gulf" (starring Charlie Sheen), you can see Saddam Hussein planning his day ahead. He wrote a list like this:

    -Get kids to school.
    -Executions
    -Executions
    -Executions
    -Lunch with Gaddafi
    -Executions
    -Executions
    -Executions
