    Default What types don't have passions/strong interests?

    I have a couple of friends who have bemoaned the fact that they don't have any passions - you know, like some people just love collecting, or running, or traveling, etc.

    Are there certain types that tend to be middle of the road about everything?

    I felt this way when I was depressed.

    Te and Ti doms maybe?

    In all honesty I can't think of any type that would be by nature dispassionate.

    how much do you have to like something before it becomes a "passion"? I like doing lots of things. Not sure I would say I'm "passionate" about any inanimate thing or activity.

    Your second sentence is right. Think of any random ISTP kid who spends hours shooting a basketball or skateboarding..hell, even in the rain (or insert _whatever activity_). An INTP otoh could get similarly obsessed about working out a model for some issue or problem.

    People who are middle of the road just haven't found a niche or hobby to keep them interested. I've never met anyone like that, but it sounds bad. It's strange enough when I run into someone who isn't even that passionate about one thing that's usually universal. Music. They'd have to be extra boring if they were like that about everything.

    I wouldn't say that Ti doms are synonyms with those with aspergers, but yes Ti doms can be passionately interesting in certain activities (or even romantic passions for that matter).

    Yep, I've known ITP's back in my high school who were very interesting and absorbed into certain hobbies and stuff; never met one who wasn't.

    ESTJs are so busy trying to control everything that they easily forget about hobbies.

    I know an ESTJ who collects so much shit that he has multiple cabinets in his house to hold it all. Over the years, he has changed from knives to guns, and has always collected tequila (I guess, since he was old enough to). He also collects movies. And yes, I would call it passionate. So passionate that in his old apartment, there were piles of shit everywhere to the point where there was only a small path with which to maneuver through it. His entire living room now is overtaken with tequila bottles.

    I think any type can be passionate about a hobby.

    This would be a great "types and interests" thread. I can't think of a type with no passions, so it would be fun to list what I think the passions of different types could be. I would make a list now but I'm afraid it would make me late for work.
