Nah, I prefer to write in an actual journal, due in part to simply enjoying the feeling and appearance of written words, and also due in no small part to the fact that paper journals are far more combustible than electronic ones.
And, to use metaphorical language, when you re-read them later, wistfully, they are far more comestible, too.
(Provided they have been saved from the flames.)

My first question is, do many of you keep diaries and journals to work out your feelings? I've read it's an Fi thing to express feeling in writing, and figure things out that way. If so, do you ever keep them on the computer because it's easier to type than write? Or would that seem too impersonal?
I have kept diaries on and off throughout my life. I have a bad habit of getting rid of them, though. I really don't like reading my own emotions. The gap between feelings and words is soo great that there is an awkwardness to a journal. Instead, I write stories, make drawings, and make music to deal with my emotions. Much better, cause no one else can hear my music and understand my deep personal feelings.
I very easily fall in line with the rest. I'm emotional, sensitive, and obsessed with music and understanding people and things. I think from my experience that the sports stereotype in this case is a tad unreliable for most infp.
No. I've tried a couple times. Both a real, physical journal as well as a blog. Never had the drive to keep with it though.
Do I play sports
Absolutely. I was a goalie that played hockey at a pretty elite level. I'm also decent enough at golf.
What is it like being Fi-dom
It's hard to explain cause it's the only way I can think lol. It's certainly not like we're always experiencing intense emotions. All types experience emotions; probably about equally.
My best advice is to read Catcher in the Rye. By far the most accurate accounting of what it's like to be an NFP I've read. It captures the whole spectrum of our thoughts - not just Fi and Ne but also low order Si and Te. Just an amazing book.
