    I could never stand the fast-paced stuff that 'fun' implied at most camps. Or if it's a religious camp its very hard to integrate since most people that are even similar to me have very different interests. ()

    Or the fun is mundane and overly teamworky (As said before) and I -cannot- work well with people I don't know too well.

    If I have decided 'No,' goading wont do anything. If I decided 'yes' . . . theyre lucky.

    I always loved that 'shark attack' game that is with the giant circle mat thing...

    I think I would agree, but sitting around the table getting drunk can be really fun.

    We is far too sophisticated to have fun. Fun is for SFPs. They have to have something in their lives.

    That's it! I'm changing to SFP. Fun is, well fun

    The problem is when someone else's definition of fun doesn't match with my reality.

    I can relate. I used to hate "fun". When someone would say, "Let's do this; it'll be fun!" I would have absolutely no inclination or temptation to do it. I still don't really. Like if a friend says, "Let's go shopping. It'll be fun." I was with her until she said the word fun. (And actually I'm not that crazy about shopping either. Lunch I like! )

    I have "fun" in a box. The box is labeled, "I don't like fun. Fun is frivolous and useless. It doesn't accomplish anything important or significant. And sometimes people get hurt."

    Being married to an ISTP has forced me to learn how to have some fun. I can relax a little and have some fun, but generally I still don't prefer it.

    I used to be deathly serious almost constantly before I met him. I never joked or teased. When people teased me, I would be offended. I took everyhting seriously and didn't know when people were kidding.

    see I don't have an aversion to fun if it's in my terms. I have an aversion to fun when people are trying to convince me of why I should do something. that and it will be a growing experience. Fuck that! if I wanted to grow I'd go tie myself to a rack. but seriously, if I want to do something I'm going to go do it and if I don't. I won't. no amount of it will be fun or it will help you grow as a person won't work. alot of people suck, why would I want to be more human like? hmmmmm?
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I don't know, I don't think what I do during my leisure is what most would consider fun. "Fun" for me is about pursuing and, of course, obsessing about my obsessions. It actually is more a feeling of anger than fun, but I am compelled to do it.

    I wonder if this dislike of fun has something to do with not feeling competant at it? Something like not feeling empathic enough to be any good at this "fun" business.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I dislike "fun" because most people's idea of it is literally translated to "pointless and boring" in my head.

    I read somewhere that activities other types find fun simply can't compare to the amazing theme park that is an INTPs brain.
