Has Christmas snuck up on anyone else? It always, always feels that way to me, and I’ve finally realized that how I approach Christmas is more due to my personality than I realized.
Being an INFP, I like to leave things open-ended. Making final decisions is not my strong suit – it’s outside of my comfort zone – I like to sit in the world of endless possibility. Hence, finishing my Christmas shopping weeks before Dec. 25 seems unconscionable to me. What if someone changed their minds about what they really wanted? Or thought of the perfect gift idea to send me a week before Christmas? Or what if I saw the *perfect* thing in a store for someone, but had already bought a rather unexciting sweater, just to check a box on my list?
That would be awful. So I wait. I wait until the last minute, because that seems like it makes the most sense.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I think I just rationalized procrastination. *high fives*.
