    I haven't gone to any parties or clubbing, just because I don't know what I am supposed to do or say or how to mingle. That would be an epic social failure!

    Drugs, I don't touch them. I don't like the idea of altering my senses and letting my guard down, nor do I like not having full confidence in what I am putting in my body. If I were to do illegal drugs, I'd need to know when it was made, who made it, and have a third party objectively test the substance to make sure there is no monkey business going on (it's really supposed to be ecstasy, but in reality it's something else... or it's a tiny bit padded with a bunch of filler). Even then I would still be nervous to take it, unsure of what will ensue. I don't want to do something I can't take back, a loss of memory, or a scary bad and I am the kind of person who would probably cause that to happen due to worrying. So it's best to just not even bother altogether.

    I enjoy going to bars pretty damn often. I like going to clubs too, but it's hard to find a club in my area that's not thugged out. Come on, I'm not going to go to a place where I'm gonna get killed, am I? I used to enjoy pot, but I don't smoke it anymore because I'm in college and I can't focus on it.

    More in the last few months than before, I've seen myself becoming involved in these kind of activities more extensively (although I've indulged in them for quite a few years). My first thoughts were that this was impossible for an ENTJ, and I must be an ESTP or something. Then I realised that this was a stupid train of thought, and that any type can engage in this sort of behaviour. (Plus, due to the NT's highly analytical nature, I doubt I'd be thinking in this way and posting here about this if I weren't an NT.) Then it struck me that there might be a kind of general trend amongst NTs and this behaviour... or there might not be. This is why I'm posting this thread; to find out what you guys make of these attitudes to life (because as well as being activities, I think they entail a lot more than just involving yourself in certain behaviour. For many (although I'm not sure it is for me), these kinds of things can be life-changing, especially drugs).
    I view them as foolish, but I wouldn't JUDGE somebody for trying them...

    I tried to be open-minded about it, and then I realized that all the people who do that kind of thing really are judging me, and that's when I decided to say "fuck it" and judge them right back.

    In short, open-mindedness blows.

    i like them. maybe it's very un-NT like, but I guess I'm a mix and hate rigidity in character. humans are complex after all.

    My NT ness only extends to intellectual curiosity, reasoning, and pondering things, but I like to party hard when I can (which is every week, and hang out).

    Never was a big bar hopper. If I'm in the dating stage with someone and they want to go, I'll go and probably have fun, but it would never become a habit, and if it's something they plan on doing regularly then I'd no doubt dump them and move on to someone else more like me. Just not something I seek out. As for drugs, I experimented when younger to find out for myself what the fuss was about with different ones, but never liked them enough to make them a habit either.

    Whenever I go to a bar, I'd just like to get drunque in peace, without anyone disturbing me with their boring life story (sometimes even too boring when the listener is drunque) told in drunquen slurring or potentially throwing up in my lap. There cannot possibly be anything in this world worth the time than to put up with that shit. Never really partied or went clubbing before. I'd rather just play my video games and watch/go to the movies. Although I do think video games should be considered a recreational drug, so to answer (part of) your question, yeah I do like recreational drugs.

    Of the peers I associate with the drug users/abusers are almost exclusively INTs (though this may speak more of my social ideals than anything). I know an INTP who researched and experimented at length with psychedelics and an INTJ who developed a coke habit and binge drinks regularly. As an INTJ leaning more toward psychedelics than stimulants and depressants, I feel uncomfortable drawing any clear connections between type and psychoactive inclination/disinclination. While most psychotropics do hamper clarity of thought, that often seems to be the goal--boosting serotonin and dopamine and oftentimes lowering acetylcholine as a means of escaping one's nature and immersing oneself in the lucidity of the moment (thinking cannabis primarily, alcohol minus lucidity).

    Personally I go to great lengths to avoid gatherings with more than three other people (I'm quirky, don't ask) unless I'm barreling toward drunken bliss, and even then I stand out as the most reclusive in the room. I avoid clubs and bars, for the most part, and really don't enjoy dancing at raves unless I'm wreaking havoc on my serotonin receptors. To be fair, though, there wasn't a hint of indecision in my introversion/extraversion portion of the test--I routinely test 100% I.
