I am Student from an university in North East. I had a bad habit of coding in a language, just by seeing examples and browsing/googling syntax online, thats how I completed most of my assignments, but better late than never, I realized that this is a problem, when you go into research, where you need to think in terms of language and understand the underlying mechanisms to become a better coder, which is what after all, I am striving for. Anyways, I think I will learn more here, than I could ever contribute.

@Coder: INTP? I googled it, there are some matches.

Yeah, I have attended some lectures from my school counselling centers, I also know what to do, but for me,'its easier said than done'. I know what to do, but I fail to do :(

Thats exactly, where I am at. I like informal coding. I am better working alone, rather than in a project. But if everyone in the project knows about, what they are speaking about, then I dont have a problem. I need to have a better structure. I write down a formal structure or things I need to do, but never see it again. When time comes to see what I am supposed to do, I write a new one, instead of following old one. Sticking to plan, is not really with me.

And regarding the programming problem time duration, I am talking about different level. For example, short duration - 1 week, long duration - 3 to 6 months.

Nope not really, I have been lazy for too long as opposed to how busy I used to be. Discipline is the straight answer, but its easier said than done, I need to work on those, any advise on this will help. Thanks.

Yeah I am from computer science, I too like competative programming, in general in a project, before getting to the exciting part there is always a part of code that tests your patience usually the boring one. I cannot concentrate on more than few minutes if I sit on this, I like the thinking part, where I need to design, but after that it becomes boring, unless the deadline is approaching
