(PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE only answer the poll if you're ENFJ)

It seems that most of the MBTI quizzes draw this hard line between the J/P traits, basically that J's like schedules, lists, calendars, planning, etc... Compared to a P who may be more spontaneous, live-in-the-moment, etc.... I can see and enjoy the merit of both, and feel like that line shouldn't be so blasted sharp... opinions?

Also, FWIW I like to have a schedule and I also like to just _do_... Maybe I just have a weak J? Spontaneity is _valuable_ to me.

personally im a routine guy, i love routine, i eat the same thing for lunch all the time, every restaurant and bar i go to, i order the same thing. ill change it up once in a long while, but in general im routine,

however, I also say yes to everything, and this is where i get my spontaneous nature in gear, if someone asks me if i wanted to roadtrip to Oklahome in a couples of days then i would say yeah, and i did ( just got back from the coolest most random road trip ever!)

so i rely on my friends to bring variety into my life

i value spontaneity! a lot of the time, it's very fun just to get lost in the moment and engage with everything/everyone around you without planning everything to the last detail =]

I like spontaneity a lot, though when it comes to things that cost more than time, or if I'm really busy/trying to sleep for early wake-up for something, then I'm less inclined to go along with it depending on quickly going over "can I afford to do this right now?" in my head (money/time/sleep/etc wise). Though, for a J, 7 or so times out of 10, I'm inclined to go along with whatever change in plans happens calmly, and then only 1 out of 10 do I say no...the other 2 usually is a grumble due to doing something I either don't want to spontaneously or have to drop something else I was doing to do it (this is usually reserved for when I get asked to help clean/move people with little to no notice...that is annoying).
