I am an INTJ and i frequently find myself looking around my room thinking "It looks like a bag lady's trolley exploded in here, why do i have so much crap?", and yet finding it hard to throw anything out. I still have pebbles from when i was 8 when i went to the beach, a rusty nail i found, and piles upon piles of marbles that seem to congregate in my room. I had to steel myself for 5 minutes before i could bring myself to throw away a beach chair token from a recent holiday. I find myself thinking that this is utterly ridiculous, and yet i have always had a problem with throwing things away (It seems to run in the family, nothing ever gets thrown out, just passed around in case someone else finds it useful).
Everynow and again i get utterly ruthless and throw out everything and my room becomes empty and spartan except for a few key items, like my pebbles and the rusty nail, but it seems like that in no time at all my room is filled with crap again. It's not like i keep rubbish and packaging, but od little things i pick up and find difficult to throw away again.
This strikes me as very un-INTJ like behaviour, so i was wondering if this is something anyone else struggles with, or wether you all manage to keep pretty tidy.
(PS. Everywhere else in my house has to be spotless or i fly off the rails and an OCD like cleaning frenzy ensues, but it's just my room is messy as hell and filled with crap.)
