    - What activities do you like to do outdoors?
    or What physical activities do you like to do?


    People go outdoors?

    I like to dance but I get vertigo now so dancing usually makes me sick, lol.

    - How would you describe this picture (briefly)? http://www.norcalwater.org/images/ncwa_painting.jpg

    yuck

    - Do you have a personal philosophy of life? if so what is it?

    Be true to what you believe in and heal yourself as much as you can and try to align as close to the inner conscience as possible. Help those who want it and leave the rest alone. No one can force change on others. The world can only heal by each individual healing internally on their own time.

    Good point, you are an INFP, but I don't think it's impossible to try to invent questions that may be more in between. It's difficult I suppose, I am an INFP too, but just because we are INFPs doesn't mean we can't imagine something else. I wasn't meaning for it to sound like a huge complaint, mainly an observation.

    -----------------------
    1. name your five favorite fiction books (and why).
    So far (because I haven't read a ton I would like to):
    - Brothers Karamazov (Never read fiction like this with such philosophically and psychologically engaging plot and conflict and insights)
    - The Pillars of the Earth (Very fun plot to read and enjoyed the historical aspect of it, especially descriptions of cathedrals)
    These aren't really my favourites, but ones I really enjoyed, so close enough:
    - Pride and Prejudice (mostly because I think Mr Darcy is great haha)
    - Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (I actually didn't want to put it down, or for it to end. I dunno, it was so fun to read)
    - Cat's Cradle (Fascinating, I loved the idea of the Bokonists, however I didn't really understand the entire novel when I first read it, and it's something I want to reread)

    2. your favorite subjects from school that you would actually read for pleasure.
    Psychology/Anthropology/Sociology, Philosophy

    3. are you fascinated in the duality of good vs. evil, light vs. dark?
    Not quite, but I am vaguely fascinated on what ethics is and how we determine what is ethical or not.

    4. do you want to understand how evil works?
    I want to understand what makes something considered 'evil'

    5. what are the topics of some of your favorite daydreams?
    Love
    Freedom

    6. what is fascinates you most?
    People, and life itself.

    7. what do you think about the interconnection between humans and all that is?
    It exists.

    EDIT to add :

    8. What's your impression of the other IxFP type? (from SciSki)
    I don't know if I know other ISFPs or how well I know them, but I suppose they are quite likeable. I can be rather close to an ISFP myself, so yea... haha

    9. If someone asks you what clues to look out for in deciding if someone is ISFP or INFP, what would you say?
    How deeply do they like to go into some matters? INFPs tend to like to analyse things a bit more deeply than ISFPs I think. Otherwise... beats me.

    14. Do you believe that some people are born evil, or is it a reaction to the environment in which they were raised in? (from Neo-Genesis)

    Reaction to environment largely

    I've been working on this for about 25 years. I hate to admit it but my impression is that it is inborn...

    Please add questions to broaden the comparison!

    If you were a tree, what kind would you be, and what would you like hirsch to make out of you?
    Apparently I am too dim to figure out how to multi-quote...and I don't think that I can blame it on being ISfp...

    To Hirsch: I agree. The older I get the more I tend to think evil is inborn, waiting for catalyst.

    Agree about vendors and broadcasters.

    I am curious if you would have answered any of the questions differently ere turning 35-40?

    Tramping, ball games, drinking, barbecue meat.

    Weightlifting.

    How would you describe this picture

    Mountains in the background. A river running through the middle. Various types of fields of who knows what kind of crops. Kind of abstract.

    Do you have a personal philosophy of life? if so what is it?

    Not really. Let's have fun. Let's work together and do something cool.

    I'd be a Kauri. I'd have you make wooden toys out of me.

    I guess 1984 was the only fiction book I've read in recent memory that I liked at the same time.I don't read much books unless I have a burning desire to do so. Other than that, I do enjoy Calvin and Hobbes.

    History was the only one that extended out of the classroom I suppose.
    Quote Originally Posted by heart View Post

    Somewhat. It's more focused on policing myself instead of observing it in the world.
    Quote Originally Posted by heart View Post

    What's not to understand?
    Quote Originally Posted by heart View Post

    Usually having imaginary conversations, concocting up some dream videogame, or just wondering what a SO would be like...
    Quote Originally Posted by heart View Post

    The most? That would surely have to individuality. Not only in myself but in others too (and the lack thereof). Nothing seems to hold my interest more than seeing someone attempt to define themselves by external standards and all the while you can't help but have pity for them because you know they're going through a crisis of identity.

    They can connect with each other as much as they like as long as they leave me alone when I will so.

    I haven't had much experience with ISFP's much really, just one acquaintance and a co-worker is all. From what I could tell, both were honest and genuinely nice people.

    Walking to and from cars.

    Born evil definitely. Otherwise we are just soulless organisms that are only reacting to stimuli.
