    Default INTJs - what do you do to relax?

    I don't think I spend enough time just chilling so I'm looking for some good ways to recharge.

    I can't help you. I'm bad at relaxing as most of the time I am stressed.

    I like to lift weights. I've done that for years, it can be very soothing at times. Occationally I juggle as well, or paint minatures. All of those are Se related, I suppose. Sometimes I play computer games or read. Mostly I read history books these days. Quite often I just day dream, which definitely Ni related!

    I agree with Andy, exercise is usually relaxing. It can't be too strenuous, though. There's a point at which exercise is relaxing and a point at which it's just painful.

    My INTJ builds things. I think it gives him a chance to escape his Ni for a while, and it serves a practical purpose, too. He's really good at it, actually.
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    Actually, IME, they're more likely to snuggle them on the couch. Don't tell them I said so.
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    I don't relax, I simply can't. If I'm stressed, I force myself to "keep calm", and it usually works.

    ETA: ^ Exercise and games are fun, too
