    It's discipline that you need, not motivation. It helps if the end goal is something that you want, but discipline is the act of doing things regardless of what you want to do because you know it's either right, or good for you. So do it or don't the results will be what they will be, and you'll know it was your choice. If you want it, then act accordingly.

    Doing things I don't want to do is a waste of time and energy in my books. I also don't think it produces good results (if it produces any results at all).

    It's like this: If it's "right" or "good" for me, I will want to do it. If it's supposedly right or good for me and I don't want to do it, I just means I have better reasons why "supposedly" is the key word and it's actually not good or right.


    In a way, that might be considered a cop out, because it's a redefinition of terms -- but then again, as long you don't whine when the consequences hit you, it's all fair. Everyone picks his own way, and whether there was by some metric a better way is quite irrelevant.

    Fear....

    And even then I wasn't motivated, just scared.

    I struggle with studying too.

    Normally, I gauge what I have to do and if I know how to solve if, I move on because I'm not that scared.
    I aim for understanding how to solve things on the exam. Like go for the most basic steps and pick simple problems. Do your best to memorize this.

    As an example:
    So if we were to calculate the area under a curve
    >We take the formula given and integrate it
    >From the second bound and subtract the first bound
    >Got our answer

    Usually, there's a few more steps. This works for any exam that requires math/logic.


    Anything that cannot be proven, it's a blind shot in the dark for me.

    I think about the degree I want in the longrun, where I want to go in life, and use that to push forward. I also pride myself on being an academic overachiever so that helps too. I want to genuinely learn the subject, so gaining knowledge in and of itself can help, I just want to expand my horizons.

    If it's not an interesting subject to me or challenging, the wanting to take it in kind of wears down because I have trouble taking it in, but I still want to succeed. When a lot of stress builds up, it can get hard and lead to procrastination, but I still keep these things in mind. Taking notes can help, or talking to someone who understands the subject. I've been to tutoring before but I know that may not be for everyone but it can be helpful.

    it's not going to get done until you do it.

    Yep , pretty much ... Still most intp's struggle to have a healthy Ne .
    I think education is one of the first step to do that but really ... most parents just let their intp's kids leaning alone

    1)I reason with myself about the importance of it. Review my long term goals or plans.

    2)I buy myself new treats related to studying ; new food, snacks, pens and pencils, highlighters, drinks, etc. For some reasons, treats work as short term rewards for me and keep me motivated.

    3)I "pretend" to be someone else, like a movie character with similar goals and passions and I pretend studying is my hobby.

    4)I change my studying spot (bed, desk, livingroom, kitchen, library, Cafe, etc)
    OR
    I "pretend" I have changed my spot, by listening to background noises, white noise or ASMR (library noise, hogwarts common rooms, Coffee shop noise, etc).

    5)I use my hands and keep myself active (highlighting, drinking, taking notes, pacing, using a timer, drawing pictures or visual clues like graphs and charts). And I try to find new methods of studying. Or If I have time, I research about the subject myself, or try to google pictures or other visuals.

    6)I search for other people's studying example. I search studying-related hashtags on Instagram, tumblr or google, and look at other ppl's study notes, desks, etc. I search recent images to find others who have to study just like me.

    7)Studying in public places (class, cafe, library, bus, park, etc). This way I can avoid mental distractions.

    *warning ; as an introvert, I rarely do that.
    And I usually can't study well with classmates and ppl I know, They might change it into a talking session instead.

    I try to think of those who have put me down unfairly, a bit unhealthy I know.
    Or just function like an Intj, just do it, dont ask question.

    Probably pride. When I was younger, I thought that I can understand everything, mostly because other people were constantly telling me that I was smart. For math and science, I'm just naturally curious about them, so no motivation is necessary.
