    It think people are more speaking against the common connotations associated with "fun", not the actual concept of fun.

    Everyone, minus Uber, likes fun.

    and people literally cringe and I always just assume that they are being shy. And I always just assumed that almost everybody liked to have "fun". (Sitting around a table drinking, shoe shopping.) and that if they didn't want to have fun then they were just really tired or just shy.

    Dudes and dudettes, it is possible to make ANYTHING fun if you are willing to want to have it that way.

    Basically, the way I get by daily is to attempt to be maximizing my enjoyment all of the time. So what if you're going to have to do something lame? Do it all your own way! MAKE YOUR OWN FUN! Don't just sit and wait for fun to be fed to your asses, you lazy n00bs.

    Yeah, this is probably based more on disliking the common notion of fun. Fun, by definition, is whatever you enjoy doing, so you can't avoid enjoying fun things.

    Okay so I've been arguing over something with my ENFP friend which I think relates to this. He seems to be of the opinion that I should have get up and go. I should make efforts to go out and enjoy myself (the wider definition most commonly hidden behind "come on... it'll be fun"). He seems worried that I can spend days thinking about something and not actually engage in it or with it. The thing is that IS my fun.

    Earlier someone mentioned introversion being linked to how much enthusiasm you have... poppycock. I don't go all weak at the knees about shoe shopping or dancing (I loathe dancing) but ask me to redesign the current concept of computer cases (geeky but true) and I'm all yours. My minds a wash with ideas, I feel the whole adrenaline and such. The thing is I AM an introvert. That not only means that I'm more reserved than an extrovert but it also means that when I have a real party ... IT'S IN MY HEAD!

    I wonder if there's a good middle ground?

    Oooo lawnmower man.... extroverts with suits can party in my...errm no actually that's nightmarish... no definitely no.. oh GOD no...

    To me it's more apprehension at what people mean by the word "fun". Often people use it to mean something inane and mindless devoid of all intellectual content and just designed to give them a quick buzz. Now I don't mean to come across all snobbish and aloof but I'm much more enthused by the idea of something which engages the brain, allows for innovation and even... dun dun duhhh... teamwork. Sitting around a table getting drunk is none of those things...

    Anyhow I was wondering if there's any more who recoil from the term fun or something similar.

    Anybody?
    Fun (= a good time) is a mental health issue.

    1. Rugby
    2. Cricket
    3. Polo.

    So they say.

    Rugby?
    Einfach tierisch !!
    If you ask me.

    Cricket?
    So-so.

    Polo is the thing.

    This is an understatement.

    That's the thing though isn't it. Fun is traditionally associated with extroverted activities. It seems like introverted fun is called boring and dull. I've lost count of how many times I've been accused of being boring because I recoiled from the idea of going out for a drink or going clubbing. In fact, having been dragged to clubs on occasion, I find nothing more dull than a group of people staggering about and shouting enthusiastically. They most often have nothing of interest to say and are completely frightened by any kind of thinking. Why can't it be combined? I wouldn't mind so much if I were surrounded by people drinking and trying to get hold of the tenants of existentialism or some such but most often they're just speaking to enjoy hearing the sound of their voices and to get affirmation of their friends. It's no wonder they find me boring... I affirm very little..

    It's easier to get some new friends than to try to single-handedly change the language/culture.

    This is a case however where silence is a form of consent.
