    Default Easy-Going People

    What do you consider "easy-going" in a person?
    Who are the most easy-going people you have encountered?
    Where do they hang-out?

    I have a new quest to go in search of droopy people. My employment dynamic requires that I calm down various sorts of people. Some have mental illness/disability, some are teenage students, some are middle-aged people with anxiety issues, etc. I enjoy calming people down, and am generally effective, but I also need to be reminded that there are people not requiring "calming down". Uptightness comes from having an internal model of the world that one insists upon and becoming upset when reality conflict with it. The most easy-going position is the willingness to take it as it comes and to be able to evolve in response to change. I have some Buddhist leanings, and thought that might be an avenue to explore. I think they call it the Age of Anxiety for a reason. I think it helps for consistency if the people have enough grasp on reality that their easy-going-ness isn't a result of self delusion. That usually ends up with a rude awakening at some point. Maybe this is a silly thread, but even though I like the worked up people, I'm on the lookout for a few droopy souls. Or, if you struggle with anxiety (and I have as well), what are ways to become just more relaxed and laid-back about it all?

    They don't require things to be a certain way.

    Generally they all fit some kind of xxTP personality type.

    Where do they hang-out?
    It could be anywhere. They are too easy going to insist on being in a certain location.

    I don't like the word droopy much, it sounds slack. I think an easy going nature is a responsive nature, not slack, not over tight. An easy going person responds to things in an appropriate fashion. Not too much, not too little. Easy going people come in all shapes and sizes. I don't know where they hang out. I have met easy going people in all kinds of places. People sometimes even say I am easy going.

    Easy-going people usually don't worry about much, they just wait to see where the chips will fall.

    I would define someone as easy-going if they were accommodating and pleasant. While they can be opinionated, their opinions would be mostly inoffensive.

    Nope, I am definitely INFP (OMG AN INFP SAID DEFINITELY INFP). It's my social variant, apparently. Social commentary.
