    Default NFs and poetry...

    Well, it has been discovered that SPs hate poetry (NTs, including myself, have answered to that, too), so I've become inspired to make yet another inquiry for the NFs, which is pretty straightforward.

    Do you like poetry?

    No. I'm a bad NF. I rarely like poetry that is not song lyrics.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    Actually I've never liked poetry. I almost DISlike it...

    Now that's what I like to hear from an NF! (That's because you have both steered my theory in the way I want it to go!)

    Until 10th grade, I hated poetry. When I took a poetry-writing course in high school, I discovered that I hated it because I didn't understand the grammar of poetry. Since that course, I have written a lot of poetry, mostly traditional types, i.e., sonnets, and I love to read poetry, to the point of memorizing the entire poem "My Last Duchess" by Robert Browning.

    I'm neutral towards poetry. I don't dislike it, and I don't love it either. To me it's just another form of expression.

    When it comes to reading poetry I either pick it up right away, or I have to re-read it a few times it's all depending on my mood or mental state at the time.

    As for writing it, it's rare when I do, but I have in the past.

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.

    sometimes poetry is extremely moving/touching, and i get all girly and shit.

    but mostly i just don't read it.

    song lyrics get to me, though. a lot.

    In general, no. There have been a few poems that I've liked, though.

The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."
