    Default SJs and Farmville

    I have several SJs in my life who are obsessed with Farmville on Facebook. My suspicion is that the majority of individuals - not all... please don't go off on me for a generalization - playing Farmville are SJs. Just wanted everyone's thoughts - am I right, or are there just as many other types obsessed with Farmville? It's such a detailed, structured, routinized, collection and inventory-oriented game that it seems to make SJs' loins quiver.

    Haha. One of my favorite people, an ESTJ, kept sending me invites or whatever they are, for Farmville. He loves it.

    My ex is an ESFJ. I could see him drooling over it.

    A lot of people I know are SJ's, and I get all these Farmville requests (and other similar FB games). Seems to be something people who like to sit home on the computer a lot (and are not into abstract discussions such as on this forum) like doing. (I don't really spend a lot of time on FB, just post news, and check up on what others are doing).

    It only seems so because so many people in this world are SJs. I (NT) played FV for over a year, my SP wife also (she only needed neighbors and told me I didn't have to play the game, but I did on the basis of using harvesting software to cheat with).

    Cheating on Farmville; now that's what I call being smart.

    A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

    I bought a Farmville manager program, and seeing how that one worked I soon decided to create one of my own.

    I obviously can't speak for other SJs, but I dislike Farmville. Part of it, I think, comes from growing up somewhere with a lot of countryside (w/ranches and farms, though mostly ranches, to be fair), and so if there's any "exotic" appeal to Farmville, it does not exist with me.

    Facebook games, in general, put me off, because they're such a time-suck with so little gratification. They're like the sidequests of video games, that you don't savor, but make yourself get through, in order to keep playing the part of the game that you enjoy.

    Of all the people I know who play a lot of Facebook games (including Farmville), it seems like more of an FJ thing than a TJ thing, maybe. I know lots of INFJs who play Facebook games; my former roommate kept an imaginary fish tank, and my mom is obsessed with Bejeweled Blitz.

    I don't even have a Facebook account, and Farmville doesn't look fun.
    I don't see any invisible treasure chests.
