    This for me, in its entirety.. although I guess I usually shower at about 10am or so.

    I'm usually in until the hot water runs out, which is all too soon :steam:

    As long as possible... with lots of singing... but... the hot water won't last that long so I never take such long, exurberant showers.

    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    I take a good half an hour or until the water get cold whichever comes first.
    Yeah, something about being isolated in a shower really gets me thinking.

    Oh, totally. Except I sit there even when the hot water runs out. The shower is me me-time, where I get to think about everything. Heh, I've even had conversations with people about having a conversation with them in my head. They respond and everything. Its kind of...odd.

    So for this INTJ, the showers run for a half hour to at one time hour and a half, just standing there thinking. It really is relazing though. I've even fallen asleep (sitting down, haha)

    10 minutes. I have an efficient system that developed out of necessity when my kids were small. I might push it to 15 once in awhile but that's the limit.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    It appears that longer showers have a lot to do with "alone time." Living alone, I don't worry about that.

    So, I only shower longer than 7 - 10 minutes when I really need to wake up (and have the time) or when the weather outside is frightful and I feel as though I'm absorbing the heat in defense.

    I do, on occasion, enjoy the long soaking hot bath with scented candles. Especially after any sort of strenuous yard work. In which case I feel I've earned it.

    Average is probably 20 minutes.

    5-10 minutes when i need to be quick (depending on how quick i need to be), and when i have time and don't really have much else to do it can go out to 30, 40 minutes is somewhat rare..

    I've had an hour long shower a couple times before, but at the end of it my hands felt all weird. And, plus, it was mostly because i was pretty much asleep in the shower.

    And, yeah, i think a lot in the shower and get a lot of my more.. thoughtful thoughts (i guess?) in there, too. Haha.

    10 - 30 minutes..... I really like to stand under the water & nod off & let my conditioner do its magic, but I can shampoo, condition, soap off in 10 minutes if necessary. Shaving legs always adds an additional 5 minutes or so.

    I like long showers. I think I average at least 20 minutes. I don't know if I've ever eclipsed the hour mark but I've definitely approached about 45 minutes or so. I absolutely love the clarity, and comfort, of my thoughts in the shower. I think I mentioned this another similar thread but that's the time of day that I usually reflect on my life personally and take into account more fundamentally critical things. Whether it's something that's been on my mind a couple of days, how I've affected people, how I'm received, my personal philosophy. Essentially it's like a time I blot out for really considering things.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.
