    I believe it's okay as long as it doesn't interfere with anyone else's happiness. So you can't do something pleasurable if it hurts someone else, otherwise you should be free to do it if you wish. Does that make sense?

    As do I. I don't think there is such thing as objective morality.

    I personally believe we should be able to pursue our pleasures so long as it harms no others, and society would still function at its optimum level.

    To the OP: You are asking the wrong question. The question I would pose is, 'Is it effective in feeling life most deeply to live a life solely consisting of pleasure-seeking?'

    No.. not for me at least. Self-loathing and complacency would begin to eat at my insides. A quest for understanding lasts much longer and allows for life to be lived to a fuller capacity.

    But if you choose the life or pleasure seeking the original question returns, should you pursue pleasure without limit?

    you should pursue happiness, but I don't think that unlimited ANYTHING can bring you happiness! Unlimited implies that there's no challenge, which implies boredom

    Never deprive yourself of anything, of course, then you'll be missing out on all of life's experiences, but overindulging in anything is a b!*ch- beleive me...

    I pursue pleasure all the time.. but I know when to stop, because then the pain will be greater.

    Two examples:
    1. You enjoy interacting with someone, so you try and talk to them every hour of every day. Obviously, it is not going to be a source of pleasure for much longer.. either because the person began to pull away from you or because you just aren't feeling it anymore
    2. You enjoy drinking, so you drink drink drink, and then you have a terrible hangover.

    So my answer is no.

    Not really... it means that without limitations or consequences, should you pursue pleasure? That's how I read it. And I think so, because to me the only reason not to pursue it is because of the consequences. My attitude given current reality is that you should be free to do anything that doesn't hurt others, although you should avoid doing things that harm yourself (in my opinion).

    With dominant Se, I'm sure you learned that lesson the hard way...
