    Default New things.

    I've read that in general Ns are all about new things, ideas and experiences. I know as an INTP I spend a lot of time focusing on further understanding new theories and concepts - for example right now I'm very interested in human communication, rapport building techniques, body language etc but in a month or two I'll probably be studying maneuver warfare or micro economics. As NFs, what sort of New things get your attention? What are you interested in right now?

    A list of things that continually get my attention:

    Making art
    Psychology
    Fish keeping
    Quantum Physics
    Astronomy
    Mythology
    Sculpting
    Travelling
    Programming
    Gaming
    Ecosystems
    Microcosms
    Urban legends
    Designing buildings


    Uh...I think that's it for now...

    It's always growing...

    Edit: Note how somethings are purely conceptual and somethings are purely physical. Not everything is concepts with me. I like doing things, too.

    Interesting. Do you invest a lot of time in these things?

    A few things occupy most of my time. Making art is a "job", so I end up investing a lot of time. Most of the other things get surges of time spent in them, then long periods of nothing...then another surge.

    Writing as much as possible. Like different genres and topics and ideas. I can never get bored of it.

    ^Same goes for reading as above.

    Tarot has interested me lately, and I'm googling different ways to use my cards. I don't believe it, but I like to see what they say. Same goes for palm reading.

    Psycology, obviously. It's why I'm here. But more specifically, people.

    Stuff like the meanings of different flowers and stones and such. That interests me greatly. I want to look up constellations and stuff, too.

    Mythology. Sometimes, it's off and on.

    Unusual sports. Usually not requiring a ball. (...the leather kind, thanks.)

    Theater. I used to obsess over how theater worked and performing and singing and everything.

    Okay, I know I already said writing, but the structure of words might be another section entirely. Like how to write something in different ways. More poetic, more concise, more subtle, etc...

    Mhm, that's most. But there's certainly more.

    Growing up I was very much into the arts - music (oboe and piano), dancing (ballet), and art/creativity/painting. This was a constant from childhood up through college. Starting about junior high I also became very interested in birdwatching, so learning about all of the North American birds was really interesting for me. Also loved science subjects in school.

    In college I chose Ecology, Ethology, and Evolution as a major, because I am interested in all three.

    Post-college, I went through a philosophy phase, and was reading/interested in philosophy for about 2 yrs. At the same time I was wanting to learn more about history and science subjects (mostly physics as applicable to the formation of the universe), so was reading a lot of that too. Also read some books on buddhism.

    Other 'new things' in my 20's were getting into watercolor painting, rock climbing, **traveling**, and photography. And throughout my 20's I've been very much drawn to psychology and personality stuff (go figure). Oh, scrabble and playing games too.

    Random thing a year or so ago - became interested in the Congo region of Africa, so purchased a book on the region and was mesmerized by what I learned. Also spent a fair amount of time Wikipedia-ing (haha) a lot of stuff on Africa. Similar could be said about other countries/cultures - a yr or so ago I went through a kick of reading fictional novels by several Indian authors, and that was really interesting for me.

    'New thing' for me now is uprooting myself from MN and moving to a new state to explore a new place, shake up my life a bit, and kick the cobwebs out of my been-here-for-9-yrs brain.

    I find I start to feel I'm 'stagnating' every couple of years, mentally, so sometimes that means picking up new interests or learning new things, and sometimes it means a physical change of location or a new job to learn.

    And another constant throughout my entire life - reading books. :-)

    New things/experiences are a constant need in my life.

    Right now?

    Travelling/living abroad
    French language/culture/philosophy
    On the above note: I've actually developed a taste for French folk music, which I never really cared for before. I usually prefered Italian folk music instead.
