    Hmmm.. I may be over interpreting the question, but for me it's adventurous any time that I walk out my door and I am open to adventure. This is often.

    As far as something that feels adventurous in a grand sense, no matter what I do today I'm not sure I can capture that feeling as a kid, roving the neighborhood, scavenging abandoned backlots, riding my bike in the desert, starting turf wars with other kids, poking at dead things with sticks. Everything was new and unexpected. Being a kid will probably always be the most adventurous thing I've done.

    best answer.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Depends on what one considers adventurous.

    Moving to DC for a year to work on the Hill and K street.

    Taking up MMA after college.

    Asking that girl out in High School in the cafeteria in front of everyone.

    Studying at Cambridge for a summer while still in High School.

    All those drunken exploits in college.

    Seemingly switching my career about every two years (although this trend will be stopping now).

    Deciding to leave Law School.

    Moved away and went to college in a state where I knew literally no one. Yeah, that's about it. I'm far too cautious for too much adventure.

    I did go skinny dipping once, that was fun.

    Next week I'm taking a semi-spontaneous trip to Chicago to visit a friend. I'll be navigating the city without a car by myself for quite a bit of the trip.

    So, I wrote out an all-telling, zago-length answer to this thread, decided it was overly personal for a public internet, cut and pasted it into a document and saved it on my personal computer. Still benefitting from the psycheout that was writing it, even if you don't. I barely remembered that part of myself.

    Thank you for this thread. Reading everyone else's is great fun, too.

    @zago, I want to ask you a question I've been holding back for a while now. A question many misuse, and I hope you don't take it that way because coming from me, it's a high compliment. That question is: if you are interested in enneagram at all, have you considered counterphobic 6?

    I kept roving and scavenging as an adult, and it worked for me.

    As do I, but there's nothing like the first time. There still are still adventures as an adult, but I find novelty, intrigue and drama much easier to come by.

    No but my curiosity is piqued. I never took much interest in enneagram as MBTI seemed to suit my needs, but tell me, what is this counterphobic 6 and why might it be relevant to me? I always just assumed I was a 5.
