    Reading a genre you want to have read (not necessarily classics) or book clubs for the social aspect?

    Guitar? It's actually not that difficult to learn--what's difficult is bypassing the 3 months where your brain understands but your finger muscles are still dumb, and consequently you sound like you suck.
    After 3 months suddenly your nervous system can control the muscles and it gets infinitely easier. I'm convinced this is why people drop guitar--they don't give their nervous system and muscles time to catch up to understanding how to play. I've seen about 4-6 friends teach themselves who didn't have any musical background, and so far as I can tell, 3 months is "the barrier." (Of course, it matters how often you practice--probably 8 minutes a day for the first three months would be more than enough, and after a while your fingertips will be callused and it won't hurt, and you'll be able to sound good so you'll want to play for longer periods.)

    You could pick a very specific something and master it. Is this fun for an NF? I would love to have learned every single country's name and location on a map--this kind of trivia makes politics/history/geography discussions so much easier b/c you're less lost, and gives you grounding in case you find interest in subjects and want to learn more. It's the kind of work everyone wants to have done, but no one wants to do, but feels great for the rest of your life when it's in your knowledge base.

    You could learn to juggle--apparently this expands parts of your brain that make you more mentally sharp.

    Running a business occupies a lot of time. For me it's a vocation and avocation. It will be even more fun when I actually get around to selling my product--at that point I might take a vacation.

    You could start a day care center.

    I think making cosmetics or candles from home is a good one. If you like the indoors/outdoors rock climbing, kickboxing, other fitness classes. Since you are a make-up artist, you could always volunteer with an organization to give make-overs. I know some people like crafts, you can do it at the same time as your children and make home-made cards and what not.

    As a former home daycare provider (emphasis on the "former") I wouldn't recommend it.

    Tennis sounds good. You could teach spinning. I like yoga but it's not very exciting.

    you could take up fencing and learn french so then you could say witty things in french while fencing, if I wasn't so lazy that's what I'd do.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Check meetup.com for gatherings of other folks in your area... I was amazed at the diversity of groups that meet in my area.

    It's neither a time-intensive nor fitness-enhancing hobby, but may I suggest bonsai as an interesting occupation which I imagine would be particularly suited to INFJs? Too late: I already did.
