    I love alcohol, but I don't drink often. I'll usually pass on it just because. But when I do drink, I like to get completely plastered.


    Other than that, I don't do drugs. Seems too easy to get carried away. I've never even smoked.


    But I love dancing at a show. I'm a questionable dancer, but I don't give a damn.
    I have a vagina.

    Drugs? No thanks, but if anyone wants to take them be my guest, you're only hurting yourself unless its like Marijuana or Tobacco where second hand smoke exists.

    But partying and loud music I'm usually fine with so long as you don't ask me to go.

    It sounds awfully draining. That being said, it also sounds too hedonistic to be pleasant. Pretending to enjoy myself is not itself enjoyable. As for things that could alter my brain chemistry as many drugs do, I'll pass. I prefer to function as I normally do.

    Clubbing/Dancing is too out of my element. I have a standard domain for good reason.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Going out and dancing to loud music:
    This is something that I avoid. The only circumstance that I can see myself doing this is if I were to be going out *with someone* as a couple. And even then, a loud club atmosphere wouldn't be my first choice. Even when I'm with a group of people, that sort of atmosphere really bothers me - I feel isolated and overwhelmed. My reaction is to clam up, close in, and wait things out (the earliest I can find a socially acceptable excuse to leave). I don't think this has much to do with being an NT, though. Much more of an introvert thing, combined with the fact that I have trouble distinguishing between noises, and I can't even have a conversation in such environments. Even at parties at friends' houses I tend to go to a relatively quiet room and just chat (or listen) with a small, selected group of people.

    Experimental/Recreational drugs:
    I would not partake in either under any circumstances whatsoever (this is another reason I don't enjoy clubs). It doesn't bother me when others drink alcohol (as long as they're not sloppy drunk - like most other non-drinkers I have little patience for that), but I wouldn't tolerate being in the presence of other recreational drug use. I'd just leave - although to be honest, the circumstance hasn't ever come up, and isn't likely to - I'm old enough that I'd have seen it by now. I have a really big bias against mind-altering substances (legitimate medical uses excepted, of course) - relinquishing control of my thoughts to a chemical - just not going to happen.

    If some people choose the pot head lifestyle they will not amount to much in life but these people probably already smoke it, if not pot it would be something else. In moderation I don't see why it would be a problem. Legalizing only the vapor form would virtually eliminating health problems because people are lazy, esp pot smokers, and taking the path of least resistance would use the vapor.

    Other drugs should remain illegal.
    I agree with you there but the problem I have for Marijuana legalization is the second hand smoke it produces (and Tobacco too). I'd be fine like if we had "pubs" for Marijuana and Tobacco. Smoke in there all you want but don't bring it out to the streets where people who don't anything to do with this stuff are very likely going to inhale it (one of the big reasons I'm against Tobacco smoking in the streets). If you want to smoke or take drugs be my guest, but not at the expense of others.

    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).
    Love it, I usually don't really like clubs, cause, like people already said, they tend to be similar. But I love going to raves and parties, preferably while FUBAR on drugs.

    I very, very much like to experiment with altered perceptions. Different drugs teach me different things, and I have definitely gained insights from drugs. Parties also provide me with a break from the usual. In my youth I have always been a house-mouse and wasn't really interested in all that stuff. But now I realize that there are ways to have fun when you get off your computer sometimes.

    I had great times, tripping on LSD while walking over the Sziget festival, or going to a GOA party high on XTC.

    Drunk people are actually way more annoying and dangerous then people on drugs. A drunk will look at his car and say "I can still drive this!", while someone on LSD will say "Hey, how does this thing work again? I can't drive this I'm tripping balls, I'll kill someone." Drunks can also be more aggressive and less thoughtful. A friend of mine once accidentally got pushed by a guy who was clearly tripping on LSD, my friends beer fell out of his hand and the glass broke, without a doubt the tripping guy offered his own beer in return and excused himself. I haven't ever seen a drunk guy that considerate.

    NOTE:

    I am careful about what substances and how much I take. I exercise as much quality and dosage control as I can with illegal drugs, and I make sure I know the risks. And while I like to experiment with drugs, I don't actually want to die in a puddle of my own vomit, yet. I don't think anybody should go by my experiences and try drugs because of them, I think people should come to the conclusion themselves that drugs are not necessarily a bad thing and that they want to try that. If the entire world population would be on shrooms and xtc we would not even have war, people would work together and everybody would be empathetic to each other. That being said I think that drugs prohibition is a stupid law and should not be adhered to. Drugs are better for the population then politicians are. Defy the system.

    Shrooms: "Holy fuck, nothing is definite, perception is everything. We define our own reality and it is impossible to find answers to life's questions, but if we set our minds to it, we can find solutions to life's problems."

    XTC: "If I start caring about something I can make a bigger impact, good or bad, then if I ignore it."

    LSD: "Everything is awesome"

    Salvia: "... "

    Alcohol: "Hey I actually talk to people now. Look, it even pays of! Maybe I should do this more often, and also when I'm sober."

    Marijuana: "Better then sleeping pills." (I'm not a hugh fan of marijuana)

The closeness of other people is an invasion of my privacy (I'm a guy. I imagine it's worse for girls). There are frequent interruptions, like people brushing against you, so you can't even daydream properly. The music played is so formulaic that there's not much to analyze. In short, raves/clubs are my idea of hell.

    On drugs... Taking drugs is like playing with fire. Fun, exhilarating, and dangerous if you don't know what you're doing. My personal philosophy is that of harm reduction: do research before trying anything out, and make sure you have someone babysitting you. (This advice is especially applicable to alcohol, since it's so widely used and abused.)
    I'll start by saying that I am not a very strong introvert (see the part about the realisation I had with alcohol) I think that may play a part. I used to be intimidated at clubs and parties also, but more recently I figured that it doesn't matter. Nothing is lost if you just dance and listen to the music. In fact, it may be formulaic, but if you know something about a specific genre you do tend to pick up the details and appreciate them. Hell. I laugh at people who say they don't like a musical piece because it's 'jazz' or 'classical'. I'll rant to them that 'jazz' and 'classical' are not specific genres of music, but rather ideas, general terms that are divided into genres. Afterwards I'm usually able to find a piece that that person in particular likes, eventhough he doesn't like the 'genre'.

    Electronic music is no different. I could easily point out the differences between Limewax, Pendulum and Black Sun Empire, eventhough it's all called drum and bass. And the same goes for every other music genre.

    *Waits for a comment from someone calling shimmy another type rather then INTP, thinking in advance, if they mention something other then INTP or ENTP they're wrong.

    Clubbing can be a lot of fun, but I don't do it all the time. It's a great way of getting out some stress.

    I'm not into recreational drugs.

    I've been thinkin about this... hmmm, okay, that seems to be my attitude towards it, experience and think/analyse. So far it seems that most people go there to hook up with a random person based on mostly looks, to spend time with someone they've already hooked up with, or to follow someone that is doing one of the above things. Then there are people who are really into the atmosphere, music and dance, who know every song they play and can dance like a pro and love the attention of the crowd. If you're not doin any of those things, then you're probably not gonna be at a club.

    I don't tend to enjoy clubbing at all, it means that you have to conform to the expectations of others. Like, I don't really care for their music, and I really don't want to stand around a look pretty for everyone else in silence. I try to talk to people, but every time I try, it's full of "WHAT!?!" and eventually my voice breaks down. It's much better when you get to someone's house and have an actual conversation with friends.

    I don't mind alcohol, I'll drink plenty and it really does make dancing easier. It's definitely better at a party than a club. As for drugs and smoking, a majority of the people at my workplace are smoking and/or on drugs. I avoid the smoking places, but it means I can't socialize with the smokers much. I'm never gonna do either, I have friends who do it, and have done it in my presence, but we've agreed that it's alright so long as I'm not influenced into participating. One of my other friends is actually scared of this kind of thing, even just hanging around potheads is taboo, his attitude pisses me off a little... it's those enneagram 1 expectations. You hear that all you ones out there!?!
