    my current hobby is myers briggs.

    i give it about 2-3 more months and i'll probably move on to greener hobby pastures, like amateur pornographing or something of the sort. or perhaps organizing spice racks and/or closets. maybe carpentry or the constructing of a variety of mustaches made out of real human hair. or my novel, yes, a real tour de force in the fields of french post-structuralist thought and post-modern deconstructionist literature. probably just smoking a lot of pot tho and eating waffle fries w a nice and tasty aioli (something cracked peppercorn or something smoky?).

    Everything I do is a hobby.

    I have never really had anything like that - I attempted pastel drawing, knitting, writing a book (I'm 200 pages in), I do exercise but it's not really "fun" it's weight control and interacting with others, I'm trying cooking but I see it more as "survival" than fun. I enjoy studying, reading (usually have about 3 books on the go at once to "reflect my mood") and trying to figure my inner world out (Navel gazing if you like). I love talking to people and pulling apart the universe. Talking to everyone on here is fascinating - never have I encountered so many intelligent and interesting individuals to converse with - sometimes I just read the threads and don't contribute as I love seeing it unfold...

    I just don't know whether I could undertake a hobby that would "survive" - I know I would tire of it and it would end up in the back of a cupboard - forgotten... Is this normal for an INFJ? Or is there anything that you do you would like to share?
    I know I would get bored too.
    I have yet to find anything that just *fits* me. I enjoy the out doors, but some of the adventure in that is killed cause I don't get excited about a lot of things. The only thing I can say is that maybe you don't need A hobby. Maybe you just need a bunch of hobbies. That's always possible. Another alternative is friends or people. Living life and enjoying it. People aren't always the same. Interacting with groups and such, there are usually lots of different dynamics. Not prone to get as boring as fast (sounds like it might suit you a bit based on your post). As far as a hobby to do yourself, I have yet to find one that's stimulating enough to do again and again. Sometimes, it's the destination that's stimulating and not the journey. You might just be one of those people. Hobbies are usually about the journey. It's just how things work.

    My hobbies tend to be intangible and I usually stick with them. I suppose it helps that they are multi-faceted subjects that are not so easy to understand.

    Well, I'm an INFx, not an INFJ, but I do that, sort of. I have pretty steady interests in the arts, mythology, and psychology, (and IDEOLOGY <3- [parallel structure unintended]). When things are ideologically consistent and fully explored and in tune with my aesthetic, I have an absolute attachment to them. I also have various thematic obsessions. I do get bored extremely easily though, which I guess is much more pronounced because my sensing is subverted, and i have trouble being in the moment, which makes me pretty much perpetually dissatisfied. So my attention is polar: absolute, yet fickle and extremely particular. Even with the media i love I'm still looking for new ideological nuances to devour. But there are definitely common threads among my interests, and I usually come back to them. Right now, I have an unfinished mannequin I've been working on ittermittently since last January, but my hope is that she will eventually be done. (see photograph).
    I'm good at putting things together, but in general I'm not very task-oriented. The only club that I held my attention enough to keep me in high school was Live Poet Society because we mostly didn't do anything. Just talked and wrote poetry and discussed social mores.

    I have one major focused area of expertise and occasionally delve into related areas. I'm not really a hobby person. More often than not I don't see the point of just barely engaging in some activity for recreation. I'd rather continue to focus on aspects of my primary skill to get better.

    Creating music = my sanity. I have been writing and recording music for 10 years and it rarely reached a dry spell. More things going on in my life, the more I need it. Music is more so part of my lifestyle rather than a hobby. There has been several other things over the years that has come and gone, but I will always be playing one instrument or another.
    Even in writing and performing music I have jumped around from drums, bass, acoustic, electric guitar, piano. I'm not an expert on any particular instrument, but a "jack of all trades".

    I pretty much jump from hobby to hobby, interest to interest.

It's impossible to be an X type, just so you know.
