I like hiking through the woods, cycling, and I would have probably also enjoyed wrestling if it had been offered for little girls when I was in school. Unfortunately, it was only offered for boys. I would have loved to have writhed around with sweaty, muscular teenaged boys in skin-tight spandex when I was that age. It's not that I like the idea of competition, but being allowed to experience human contact in a socially acceptable way would have been nice. As it was at that time, I didn't even hug my best male friend until the day before he had to move, and when I did, I started shaking. I was touch-starved, and wrestling would have been the perfect outlet. I'd like to learn defensive martial arts, but I have never had the opportunity. Does anyone here have any recommendations about what kind would be most useful for self-protection without involving seriously damaging the other person?
I don't enjoy spectator sports unless someone I know is playing.
In high school I played baskeball and was good at it but team sports are difficult for me. Distracting. And I confess to the INFP clumsiness.
I prefer one-on-one sports like billiards and ping pong. And solitary sports like hiking, motorcycling, swimming that I can do alone or with others. Don't know if you could call what I do with those three "sports" at all.
Don't like sports much at all actually - that win/lose stuff was never my focus. Keeping score is an aggravation. I'm all about, "Hey! Lookit! We're all having fun together."
