    What are you passionate about? Brushing dirt off of diamonds.

    How strongly do you feel passion? I'm a human torch.

    Is it easy for you to become passionate about something or does it take some time? If it's something that resonates with me, ignition is immediate. If it takes time, then it's not a "passion" for me, it's homework.

    How quickly do you stop feeling passionate about something or do you remain passionate forever? If not grossly violated in some way, it takes an eternity for me to cool down. I'm a loooong-termer. Once I attach, I'll love you/care about you until I die (and most likely well beyond that too, as death doesn't seem to end anything for me.)

    Are you passionate about a great number of things or just a few? A few things strike me hardest.

    Are you more passionate about subjects/things or people? No. People come first. People AND their subjects.

    Does sexual passion come easily to you? No. I can see the appeal of many things, but as to passion, I'm very specialized i.e. I like certain kinds of men THAT MUCH and not any of the others. When I'm with someone who flips all the switches, then yes, it's easy.

    I am an INFJ who has been passionate about God and my Roman Catholic faith all my life. I have often thought of myself as willing to be a martyr for my cause--in spite of how scary it would be, I would want to go that far for my beliefs.

    Also, I am passionate about Classical Languages and history, foreign languages, and counseling/educating people. I have wanted to be a teacher since age 7 when I made little math problem books for a friend--who did them...she was so good to me!--and since last semester when I decided to go into Life Coaching I have been consumed with trying to help people grow and improve their lives.

    These things remain as my abiding interests in life. People are always more important to me than everything but my faith, of course.

    What is your type? INTP

    What are you passionate about? Intellectual openess, some art.

    How strongly do you feel passion? It's mostly an intellectual exercise. Sometimes a sense of annoyance. Not particularly strong, I suppose.

    Is it easy for you to become passionate about something or does it take some time? Time, experience, and an understanding of the subject.

    How quickly do you stop feeling passionate about something or do you remain passionate forever? here remains something there, but it doesn't show unless the subject comes up.

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

    Are you more passionate about subjects/things or people? Subjects. Things related to people in general, perhaps....

    Does sexual passion come easily to you? Insufficient data for a meaningful answer.

    2. My opinions on social issues - I'm very passionate about issues that involve social injustice or where I strongly feel a person is being treated unfairly. I also have strong opinions on relationships & general ways people interact with one another. I tend to do things passionately - it's an all or nothing sort of thing for me.
    3. VERY strongly if I am invested in the cause - whether it be human or social. However, if I am not emotionally invested in it then I feel not much at all. I am also stubborn about my opinion when I am passionate about something.
    4. Basically, if I feel someone is being treated unfairly, my passion towards the cause is clicked on instantanously. As far as in personal relationships, it usually takes as long as it takes for that person to break down a couple walls & enter into my little circle of trust. ha.
    5. I will instantly lose the passion if I feel I have been taken advantage of or if I feel a loss of integrity with a cause I am passionate about.
    6. I am passionate about quite a few things.
    7. The people component of a subject? Does that make sense?
    8. Yes, once I trust the person I am intimate with. However, I can't just walk around passionately wanting strangers.

    I feel the same passion for helping other people improve their lives. I think that's what draws me to human rights sort of causes. I want to help people being treated unfairly improve their quality of life & overcome their situations.

    I am in the process of going back to school to be a teacher. It's fitting.

    What is your type? ISTJ

    What are you passionate about? Injustices, rooting for the underdog, politics (particularly around election time), right vs. wrong, romantic interests

    How strongly do you feel passion? I feel it strongly, so strongly that there have been times when I have refused to drop the subject and I continue ranting over and over about the same thing...repeating myself. I usually try to keep my feelings/opinions to myself but sometimes I stuff down so much I will erupt like a volcano...fun times.

    Is it easy for you to become passionate about something or does it take some time? It depends on what I am passionate about...if it's regarding another person it may take some time, or it may not...sorry going to be really vague on this question...I don't know.

    How quickly do you stop feeling passionate about something or do you remain passionate forever? It usually doesn't last long, I go through short bouts of feeling really strongly about certain things to feeling quite indifferent...like it's not worth the trouble, there is no point...nothing I can do.

    Are you passionate about a great number of things or just a few? Just a few...can only handle one topic at a time, it can be exhausting.

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

    Does sexual passion come easily to you? Yes, physical expression is much easier for me than articulating how I feel.

    I'm very passionate about the causes I latch onto. Some would say that my passions takes over my life. It's hard for me to stop caring.

    So far, most of the things that matter to me have lasted my lifetime.

    When I love someone, I love them with everything that I have.
