    Well, im enfp and answered YES, but it could have been a little bit misleading. You know, I have some convictions based on my religion, but damn, I won't call myself absolutist. I do not judge persons about what they do or do not. It's their thing. At best, I can friendy advice them, if they are willing to be adviced. But I respect what they do, they probably know what's best for them, subjectively, you know. I'm not their mother to preach them.

    There's nothing I wouldn't do because a strict rule I set myself. There are plenty of things I morally object to but I need not set any rules there because I don't want to do them.

    For example, I'm vegetarian by choice, if I were to decide one day that I really wanted to eat meat I'd do it, it'd prolly make me ill but the only reason I don't eat meat is because I don't want to. Life isnít black and white, I set no absolutes.

    I think I've said before that I believe that there are certain natural laws. Break 'em and I'm goin' down. Either slowly or quickly; Either alone or draggin' others along.

    It's in my nature to be flexible, experimental, playful. I am neither unable nor unwilling to make exceptions depending on circumstances. I try to inform myself of my choices and the consequences of each. And experience has been a good, if stern, teacher of that.

    My life's job has been to discover the boundaries of healthy living in all life areas and to work to allign myself with what my particular limitations/possibilities are.

    Simply put, to live well and grow to my potential. And to have a lot of fun in the process!

    Depends on the situation. To say no to absolutism is absolutist in itself.

    My Absolutism: To walk away from situations/people who bring me down, not up (disrespect, abuse, etc). My sanity and identity mean much more to me than to try and sit there and "fix" a problem with people who blatantly don't give a damn. If someone disrespects me, I don't give them the time of day. But if it's because they've been hurt and they're not directly taking it out on me, then I can somewhat understand (to a certain point).

    Another one: To stay true to myself, no matter what.
