    What is your type?

    ISTP, or INTP depending on who you ask around here.

    What are you passionate about?

    The cool stuff. The big projects... people hand me a cool idea and I feel compelled to make it happen. Almost nothing else gets me passionate more than a challenge.

    It can be a game, it can be something arty, it can be sports/physical, it can be intellectual.

    How strongly do you feel passion?

    When it comes to the above, strong. All consumingly strong at times.

    Is it easy for you to become passionate about something or does it take some time?

    Instant, but it's not the "emotional passion", it's more like being posessed. I don't leap into it right away, but it does consume my thinking. When I get down to doing it, it's long hours that take precedence over anything... including eating.

    How quickly do you stop feeling passionate about something or do you remain passionate forever?

    Always temporary. Until it's built, or until I lose interest.

    Are you passionate about a great number of things or just a few?

    Just a few - normally one - and they are always serial.

    Are you more passionate about subjects/things or people?

    About subjects and things, never people. I feel almost no emotion towards people at all.

    Does sexual passion come easily to you?

    No, not really.

    What are you passionate about?
    Linguistic integrity, legal/social equality, preservation of information, technology, civility, individualism, freedom of the press, personal loyalties, and compassion/sympathy.

    How strongly do you feel passion?
    You're asking me to indicate degree... hmm. I guess medium-low to ardent depending on the issue. Never enough to risk self-harm over the issue, but in some cases strongly enough to sacrifice reputation or certain friendships in order to advocate my position on the things I'm passionate about.
    Is it easy for you to become passionate about something or does it take some time?
    If I see it as related to one of the things I listed above, I'm already passionate about it, and can be easily become passionate about any issue emanating from it. If it seems unrelated to my needs/interests, it would take a long time, if it happened at all.
    How quickly do you stop feeling passionate about something or do you remain passionate forever?
    If it always exists, I probably won't stop feeling passionate about it. If it passes away with no hope of returning, my passion/mourning for it withers fairly quickly (weeks/days).
    Are you passionate about a great number of things or just a few?
    Some would say quite a few.
    Are you more passionate about subjects/things or people?
    Hmm... come to think of it, my opinion of a person can be greatly influenced by their position on a subject. It would be very hard for me to keep caring about someone if they acted against my interests. It's hard to say, I care a great deal about both. If they disagree with me, it will only be frustrating and may not affect my relationship with them if I'm only moderately passionate about it. If it's something I'm very passionate about, it means I'll probably be their enemy, although I may not act that way openly. I guess I'll have to say subjects.

    What is your type?

    ENFP

    What are you passionate about?

    Various things at various times. It changes frequently.

    How strongly do you feel passion?

    Quite strongly - I obsess over my 'topic of the moment' while I'm passionate about it, and it can hold my attention for hours and hours straight. Without distraction.

    Is it easy for you to become passionate about something or does it take some time?

    In the long term - I get passionate about things lightning-fast. A few days is usually all it takes for me to encounter something for the first time to developing a full-blown obsession with it.

    How quickly do you stop feeling passionate about something or do you remain passionate forever?

    About as quickly as I get passionate about things, I lose interest and have no further desire to do anything related. How long the passion lasts is variable. I suspect the timeframe is getting shorter as I get older. Which is bad. My last couple of things have seemed to last a few months, maybe up to about six months. Not much longer.

    Are you passionate about a great number of things or just a few?

    Only one at a time, usually. On occasion I'll have two, but that's usually 'cause one is on the way out.

    Are you more passionate about subjects/things or people?

    Well, the things I'm describing above were most certainly subjects/things, more than people (although people are involved, I guess), so, yeah. Although I get crushes a bit like that, too, so I will conclude both. But subjects are much more suitable for obsessions, really. I would imagine people get creeped out, quite understandably. I would, too.

    Does sexual passion come easily to you?

    I don't know.
    ANFP:
    Extraversion (52%) ---- Introversion (48%)
    Sensing (26%) ---- iNtuition (74%)
    Thinking (16%) ---- Feeling (84%)
    Judging (5%) ---- Perceiving (95%)

    Basically just ditto to what Lecky said.

    What is your type? - XSTJ (I think)

    What are you passionate about? Social injustices, my family, my interests

    How strongly do you feel passion? Often very strongly, but they are often short lived and exhausting

    Is it easy for you to become passionate about something or does it take some time? It depends - both.

    How quickly do you stop feeling passionate about something or do you remain passionate forever? Also depends. Somethings that are very personal would be something that I'm passionate about forever, but when it comes to causes or interests they can be short lived. For example I might head-up a committee to get something done, I'll work hard to get it done, when it's over...I'll probably move on to something else.

    Are you passionate about a great number of things or just a few?
    Usually just a few or one at a time if it's a 'cause.'

    Are you more passionate about subjects/things or people?
    People, definately

    Does sexual passion come easily to you? Yes!

    Sports, some issues in politics and economics

    How strongly do you feel passion?
    I equate passion with feeling ecstatic when I remember the experiences I've had while engaging in the activity I am passionate about.

    Is it easy for you to become passionate about something or does it take some time?
    Black or White. Either I immediately become passionate, or I never will.

    How quickly do you stop feeling passionate about something or do you remain passionate forever?
    It might or might not fade over time, very slowly though.

    Are you passionate about a great number of things or just a few?
    Just a few. I don't believe you can be passionate about many things, otherwise it's not passion.

    Are you more passionate about subjects/things or people?
    Probably about "things". I refer to the passion I may have for a girl as something different to the passion we're speaking about here.

    Does sexual passion come easily to you?
    Yeah.

    What is your type?
    - INTJ

    What are you passionate about?
    - Whatever interests me. At the moment I am maybe most passionate about the chess prodigy Magnus Carlsen and his efforts in the chess world cup. I am passionate about my two best friends, about some music, some films, and some TV series. And I am passionate about subjects like philosophy and psychology. As a nihilist, injustices doesn't really bother me.

    How strongly do you feel passion?
    - When I am passionate, I lose myself to it, and I often find it hard to talk about anything else. I guess I can become quite single-minded. It's like I don't have time to feel how I feel. :P

    Is it easy for you to become passionate about something or does it take some time?
    - It depends, but I can passionate about something fairly quickly.

    How quickly do you stop feeling passionate about something or do you remain passionate forever?
    - Usually I am not able to maintain the passion forever, but it can be pretty intense for maybe a couple of years, or just be a bit on and off.

    Are you passionate about a great number of things or just a few?
    - I don't know, you judge? That being said, I regard life as meaningless.

    Are you more passionate about subjects/things or people?
    - I guess subjects/things, but I love my best friends very much, but don’t care too much about the rest.

    Does sexual passion come easily to you?
    - Not really, but at the moment the whole theme is depressing.

    What is your type?
    INFJ. Or whatever you think my type is.

    What are you passionate about?
    Birds, animals, everything in nature, environmental stewardship, photography/creativity, psychology, learning about myself and others, traveling, attempting to live life to the fullest...those are my passions.

    I have lots of *opinions*/morals/views though on heaps of other topics -- and I equate those opinions/beliefs to strong feelings and values -- but I don't equate them to my passions per se. Passion to me is more something that consumes you..something that goes straight to your core and that makes you feel alive.
    Something that IS your breath of life.

    How strongly do you feel passion?
    Strongly?

    Is it easy for you to become passionate about something or does it take some time?
    Passion..it would be either there or not.

    How quickly do you stop feeling passionate about something or do you remain passionate forever?
    Well....with the 'true' passions, they will always be with me (environmental/nature stuff, or various modes of creativity, or I believe everything in my list of passions). But sometimes I DO get temporary really caught up in an activity, and just the excitement and newness of it. For example, earlier in the year for about 3 months I got really into ballroom/latin dancing, but my passion dissipated once I realized that it was pretty cliquey and a lot of people weren't in it for the fun/enjoyment of it, they seemed to be in it just for the competitiveness; and that's when I lost my excitement about it.

    Are you passionate about a great number of things or just a few?
    Well, probably just the above key passions, with a lot of lesser interests/opinions thrown in the mix too.

    Are you more passionate about subjects/things or people?
    Apparently things and subjects!

    Does sexual passion come easily to you?
    With a person I've made a really good connection with and see a potential future and have an emotional attachment with...most definitely yes.

    Like others have mentioned, it doesn't come with just anybody though. It is highly focused on the person himself and my relationship with him.
