Very interesting. After thinking about this for a bit, it also struck me that the E/I part probably has some influence on the discovery/outline style as well, since E's tend to "think by speaking", whereas I's usually do their thinking before they open their mouths/notebooks/word processors

comment What is a good daily word count goal?
Yup, that is a good tip. I use it myself when programming at work: if a leave "fun" part of coding which I know how to get started on, it's much easier to get going the next day.

Not when you are working on large systems, designed by others, with loads of legacy code you need to fit into, and constantly waiting for clarification from customers. At least not the level of creativity and speed of creativity I'm after :)
