    You have 6 months left to live. What would you do?

    Hi fellow INTJs

    I am curious what responses INTJs would come up with for the title? go ahead and be as serious or playful or cynical or snarky about this:-)

    To kick it off here is what I wrote at the end of 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2017. note that i have summarized a little.

    end of 2012
    To make one person happy, enjoy that persons company, be the best friend and be free.

    end of 2014
    resign job, get a nice property on beach, think and muse about life, travel around india doing my own thing.

    end of 2016
    place all financial arrangements in order, embark on a journey to observe life, talk to people, wander the earth, read books, listen to live music.

    end of 2017
    Drop everything, pack a small suitcase and head for an open ended journey to India.

    Pretty good question.

    End 2017: not much time left, so make arrangements for corpse and property belongings.

    End 2018: not much time left, so make arrangements for corpse and property belongings.

    Should always pick up after yourself, if you can.

    I'd live, finally. Instead of planning to live.

    Nothing, we're going to die one day, doesn't matter that it comes in 6 months.

    (Well besides some bucket list objectives but nothing important or "I'm going to be good person" type of things.)

    I would take pity money and see how much I can raise for the first month or so and spend it all

    Drunk almost every day and blaming the world for everything.

    I would stop working on my college thesis. A corpse doesn't need a degree. I would take the first 5 months to start and launch an awesome mobile game. It doesn't have to be the best game ever, but still good enough so people would actually have fun with it, at least for a year or something.

    The idea of creating something before dying makes me actually feel happy. I can't really describe why.

    I wouldn't work my final month on the video game, just play it and share it with people. And maybe passing the code to someone if they want yo improve it.

    I would also buy a longboard and ride it down dangerous hills. I don't do it now cause I can't afford one and I'm actually scared of breaking my bones. But if I'm dying in 6 months I know I could find the money and I wouldn't care what happened to my body.

    It would also be cool as I approach the final month to progresively skate more dangerous hills... maybe I could get a gopro and record my death or whatever.

    Also, I would give clear instructions for not burying me. It's pointless to spend money on a lot on the ground and on a coffin. A corpse doesn't need these things. Just burn me or if I die longboarding let my body rot and feed the vultures.

    hell knows. i'd probably try to think if there was anything the people around me would wonder or wish they had talked to me about seven months from now, when it was too late. and see if i could take care of any of that. things they might want to know, and so forth.

    although i don't know. i might not . it seems so terribly heavy to approach people who actually know me and say 'sooooo, i'm going to die in six months. any questions?' there might not even be any guarantee that i'd feel willing to answer the questions i get, either. so that might become pretty awkward.

    i do think i'd do/say something though. it seems very terrible to just go ahead and die without warning anyone first, if i knew it was going to happen. i'd want to give them that chance. probably tell them asap and leave the offer open for the duration, just becaues it's not like that sort of thing springs instantly into anyone's mind.

    as far as the more typical type of bucket-list things - to be honest, i don't think any of it would matter to me. there isn't anything of that kind that i want to do so badly my entire life will feel tragically incomplete if i died without doing them. it's kind of like how people keep asking me if i've ever gone back to where i grew up. the answer is no, not because i haven't wanted to but because there have always been much more important things to spend time and money on.

    Take over the world in half a year.

     
    Yes. Yes, I'm serious.

    If I had six months left to live, I would want to apologize to everyone who I need to. I would also try to improve myself in any way I could. I would try to treat everyone who I cared about as well as I could and use the time to get over past regrets. I would also think about who I would give all of my belongings to and write up a will for friends and family. I would try to let go of any grudges that I have and try to get everything attainable on my bucketlist done. Some of the things could not be done within six months and even if they could, it would not be worth much but I would try to get a good chunk completed. That way, I would feel calm and complete.

    Of course before all of this, I would freak out and need to take time to let it sink in that I wasn't going to be around for much longer. At first, I would go about my business and have the thought lingering in the back of my mind but as it got closer, the turbulent feelings would bubble to the surface. I might kind of be in denial for a good chunk of it, just to get by but part of me would know the imminent was coming.
