    My goal? Have fun. My motivation? Not having fun is... not fun.

    Seriously though, the answer to this question is entirely dependent on a person's believed data set. Do they believe in a god? Where do they fall on the political spectrum? Do they think humans are more than mere self-aware mammals? What is their moral code? There is no universal answer.

    To enjoy myself.

    I am systematically making preparations to do so.

    I know that. I aim to see the pattern when it comes to INTJs, if there is one (vague though it might be).

    So far it seems that INTJs might very well be the true "party animal" type.

    This proposition flies in the face of consensus, and I have a healthy respect for ideas that fly in the face of consensus, be they well-founded.

    Let me just note that my version of "have fun" is specific to me. If reading a book sounds fun, that's probably what I'll do, and that is not generally looked at as a "party animal" behavior.

    I prefer the full Genghis Khan quote from which Chonens little speak is derived.

    The greatest happiness is to scatter your enemy, to drive him before you, to see his cities reduced to ashes, to see those who love him shrouded in tears, and to gather into your bosom his wives and daughters.

    ...But I suppose the produces were worried that Cohnen might loses audience sympathy if he started advocating rape.

    There is a web page of Genghis quotes.

    Genghis Khan quotes

    A prize to the first person to type Mr. G. Khan.

    Anyway, back to the original subject of the thread.

    For mean, I could not live without a sense of continual improvement and growth. There is a large degree of self focus in that statement, but as I get older I look to improve the world around me as well. I guess that is the Se finally kicking in.

    If we are allowed to redefine the concept of party perhaps... INTJs can be quite self indulgent, spending large amounts of time an energy doing to something that is entertaining to them but no-one else.

    I wasn't being too serious. Was just pointing out how fun/amusement was pointed out in the posts who tried to seriously answer the question. I guess every one type could frame it as such. Yeah I'm looking to delve deeper and welcome any insight any INTJ might have.

    I'm interested to know about INTJs' life philosophy.

    You know how NFs always include other people in their own philosophical descriptions, SJs society etc...

    Are you a fan, a fascist, or just being facetious?
    I'm pretty sure his name is just Edgar. Or Edgardo or whatever the hell he goes by these days.

    Do you mean his name is "Just Edgar" or just "Edgar"?
