    Default ATTN NTs: how do YOU feel about partying/clubbing/raving and recreational drug-taking

    I'm very interested to know what other NTs make of going out and dancing to loud music in any atmosphere, and/or taking/experimenting with recreational drugs in any environment. What are you opinions on these matters?

    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).

    Uuuh I'm kind of "worried" about drugs because I don't know what kind of effects they might have in the long run on my body - I also partecipate in a lot of sports and drugs tend to interfere with performance. I'm fine with alchool though, sometimes I've overdone it actually. I love clubbing/partying/raving, can't see anything wrong with that, it's fun. I only disliked it once...it was a simil-rave on a mountaintop, in april; suddenly it started snowing really hard, along with strong winds.

    I don't get a great deal of enjoyment out of dancing but besides that I enjoy going out and socialising at clubs/pubs/parties with friends, the music, the people and the atmosphere can all energise me. Not into drugs though, made a choice at 17 that they weren't for me and frankly I enjoy drinking too much to ever question that.

    i went through the "hmm why are drugs so popular phase" so i had to learn everything i can gram into my head about em and that + the fact that i do not find em interesting (they ARE interesting and i have used some more minor drugs to see/try to analyze why and how they do things) or useful in any matter and dont care about em and wont take em recreationally. much the same goes about partying/clubbing/raving, i just cannot figure out why should I? i have tried it, not found any pleasure in it and still think its a mystery why people DO. also i find that my body is my temple, it needs to be balanced and clean!

    I have never taken any "typical" drug labeled drugs aka Marijuana, LSD, Extasy, Shrooms or even harder stuff. I did not even try a cigarette.
    It just does not a appeal for me on one hand, on the other hand I think I would even enjoy it and this is not a thought I'm particularly enjoying.

    However I tolerate other people doing it, but always have a strange feeling about it, when someone I care for is into drugs.
    When I get sad I stop being sad and be awesome instead. True story.

    I'm not going to try drugs. Never. I haven't even been drunk yet.
    My imagination is too strong already without stimulants.

    I do enjoy parties, though! I like dancing I prefer the sort of party where all sorts of music are played, not only this genre or that one. I also don't like too loud music, as I want to talk nonsense without having to shout

    I'm pretty cautious in considering long-term impact of my behavior, and I'm not much of a socialite in all honesty (I enjoy some situations very much but interacting exhausts me).

    The deal with me is that I'm curious and I want to understand things; and for many years I was in circumstances where my freedom was severely limited; so going to such environments is interesting to me, I enjoy being exposed to something new and trying to figure it out. As long as you're aware of the pro's and con's and you're in tune with what you want (so you're not doing stuff for the wrong reasons), then it doesn't seem like a big deal to me.

    I can be a heavy drinker when I am at (I like hard liquor / mixed drinks), but as far as drugs? I haven't even tried pot. The most buzz I've had from drugs is taking my prescribed vicodin. Partly I just never had the opportunity, and partly I'm skittish because (1) I don't want to get hooked on anything that is bad for me in whatever way, even if it's just financially and (2) drugs seem more dangerous long-term to me, alcohol seems far more predictable.

    I could never get into the clubbing/party/rave scene. I tried it and honestly, it was just boring and repetitive to me. I got nothing out of it, and a lot of times it'd just set off some sort of social anxiety, leading me to just make cynical and sarcastic remarks about the people around me.

    I've taken my fair share of recreational drugs. Weed, Shrooms, LSD, Saliva, and a few others. I think they're a great tool if you know how to use them correctly. I would NEVER use them to "get fucked up." And in my opinion, there's nothing that can compare to the mindset of an LSD trip. It opens up doors in your mind you didn't even know you had.
    In my defense, I am a terrible person.
