    Arrow Spirit of The Road

    Interested to see what (if any) Functions might drive people to enjoy travel and the experiences it brings. Though the focus is on large journeys, I do mean anything from train rides, buses and even long walks. Does the E/I Attitude play the main difference or is it more the S/N Function? Either way, what to do think the most well travelled type is?

    I love traveling. By any method. Anywhere. With money or without.

    For me it's about filling my deep curiousity about people and seeing different environments. Eating different food and experiencing different weather.

    Mostly it's about people for me. And I like to take time to find the little cafes and other hangouts where the tourists aren't so thick where I can mingle within the culture and eavesdrop on what the locals are like.

    I also like to come home again.

    For what it's worth I love travelling. Especially Backpacking. Just for the experience of it. I enjoy the kind of travel where you're not sure what's around the corner. I really used to enjoy long unplanned journeys for 6 months or so.

    I love travelling. I travel about 4 to 5 times a month for work. Everyweek I go somewhere new. Even if its in the US I love meeting new people from all walks of life taking little bits of info about their lifestyles and just have fun. My favorite is when they send me internationally...well the only place I can go for work is Canada lol but still it's fun. Europe is also a blast and I would love to go to Asia...that's my next continent to hit up!

    i'd probably say I_FP

    Well, maybe not as much as some, though I most assuredly get a big kick out of it It's strange because IRL I find the people who enjoy travel the most are Extroverts, but I'm pleased to hear that this is the exception - everyone should experience the world!

    For me travel is an opportunity to dust off my Ne and take it for a spin. A chance to see the unusual potential that is life and give a greater perception of the whole. With freedom and uncertainty all around I think you can get a grasp of what is in fact solid; those things which are truly important. Its been a while since my last big trip and I should definitely get motivated to once again embrace that spirit of adventure

    On the other end of the scale, do you suppose there's a least travelled type? My guess would be ISFj but that only comes from the two I've known in real life (they found it exotic to leave their house, let alone their own comfortable cultural prejudices )

    I seriously love traveling. I feel sick if i'm trapped in one single location for too
    long. I need new cultures, foods, languages, music and stuff. The downside with Many foreign countries, especially the ones to the east, is that the "ladies" bloody needs to shave. And they DON'T!!!



    Other than ugly chicks with mustaches from the former eastern bloc... It's all fine! I mean... France is a country of contrasts. There I have seen the finest ass I have ever seen. And I count the ones i've seen in movies and porn. I also saw some pretty nasty things walking/rolling around. As I said, contrasts!

    And I am greatly influenced by Two and a half men right now. CRAP! Charlie is the worst influence one can possibly imagine.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    I love traveling. Give me a ticket, feed and shelter me, and I'll be happy as can be.

    While driving from Michigan to florida and back this Holiday, I felt like it was "feeding my Si" the entire way. I've driven it a couple times and I had the feeling like "omg i know this place" like 80 times

    I think driving long distances feeds any S function, no matter how weak/strong yours is. And I DO mean driving..... being a passenger isn't the same.
