If you had six months to live

I posted this in INTP, but I would be very interested to hear from the type who asked me the question, your thoughts much appreciated:

Rather macabre question born out of a conversation as we heard that someone had to have "that chat" with a consultant about their dad.

My (ESTJ) colleague asked me, if you had a finite amount of time to live, would you want to know? Take any scenario you want, such as you know you are seriously unwell and you sense that probably you have not long to live, would you want to know how long?

If you do want to know, or have that "inkling" what would you do in the time you had left?

I couldn't reply at the time, and I am still thinking about a response, but what are your thoughts?

BTW my colleague stated she wouldn't, but we didn't have a chance to talk about it further.

But key question - would you want to know if you had a finite time to live, would you want to know, and how long?
I do my best to live my life to the fullest as it is and to experience absolutely everything that I can... I'd just spend more time with my family and volunteer as much as I could- stay out of debt so my family wouldn't have to pick up after my irresponsibilities...
