    Default RANDOM DEEP CONVERSATION (Think deep)

    The answer to Life, the Universe and Everything is... 42

    What does it mean to find Happiness? Is Happiness some thing outside the self that need be found?

    What does it mean to be Happy? Does being Happy look like something from the outside?

    How am I supposed to be Happy, when all society does is tell you you need something, as a precursor, if you are Happy you better have a reason.

    Is Happiness supposed to be reasoned into existence?? Is it some elusive state, some after orgasm intense bodily reaction??

    Where do we find this Happiness of which all of these people speak???

    To be content with oneself, the world, and one's place in the world.

    That's personal, only you can answer that.

    The second, and I say this as an NT. You can try to reason why you are happy once you find happiness but you can't force emotions on yourself on yourself if you want them to be genuine. At least not in my experience.

    Depends on the person.


    Taking a concept to it's logical end is rarely logical or relevant to the subject at hand.

    I appreciate the response, but I am actually asking for your personal opinions for yourself. I know my own answers well. If you could answer the answers from your inner perspective, that would be appreciated.

    I have no Fi to speak of. It's really bad. Hopefully someone else can answer. This would be my answer honestly, I can't related to myself at all.

    Having a life philosophy is Fi?..

    No but I think knowing who you truly are (which is an essential part of knowing what makes you truly happy) is.

    So for you happiness is externally reinforced, after categorizing oneself? What happens when external things change? What happens when "who you truly are" changes?

    And.. would it be asserted the only people who can be happy are people with Fi? I don't find truth in that knowing ones feelings about everything changes which feelings are dominant within the person.

    Fi seems to be moreso the feelings about everything.. but is that the only thing that defines who you are? your feelings about everything? A person is so much more than their opinion or feeling.

    No, I didn't say that, I said that I don't know what would truly make me happy because I have no idea of who I am internally.
