    I'm an INTJ - but I don't drink so I've never had any effects from alcohol. I stay away from all drugs too so nothing there either.

    I typically find other ways to relax that mostly involve developing a new skill or learning a new hobby.

    I become more rude and funny (Ne-Fe loop) and a bit more aggressive. Or I may just fall asleep.

    I have never been in danger of becoming an alcoholic, but I have enjoyed my time partying and getting drunk, especially in college. This quote about your friend is accurate.

    Alcohol makes me much more friendly and willing to "engage" people. I also tend to come up with with funny practical jokes and/or ridiculous things to do (games, etc). Drinking makes me more "enthusiastic" when sober I would not be so inclined to embrace such silliness.

    However, I also find that I have extremely high tolerance (meaning psychological ability to counter alcohol's effects), and I absolutely don't like to drink to the point where it shows (any kind of physical problems, slurring, walking, etc.). I need to be in complete control of my appearance and actions, while I do allow a bit of "opening up" of my personality.
    I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

    I just get really stereotypically drunk. I do become passive rather than aggressive though.

    As for the other mind altering chems question, yes I have, lots of times, with different results depending on the type of chem.

    I have never meditated on my death. I don't know what you mean by it.

    I have, I'm seeing countless atoms right now.

    I can't remember committing to something for that long, so no.

    I get less anxious, more enthusiastic, more giddy, and just all around more social. Alcohol seems to bring out my Fe big time, and my friends have commented on how it makes me act "charming."

    I also have a very high tolerance, and I never lose the ability to reason coherently. I black out long before that ever happens.

    I'm surprised so many of you have not drank/refuse to drink. I actually kind of enjoy the effects (as long as I restrain myself so as not to feel the bad effects later on.)

    I don't get much out of alcohol. It's a depressant and I don't really need that since I'm rarely bouncing off the ceiling.

    For me, it's less that I don't enjoy it, and more that I have rather low tolerance for it. The one time I did get inebriated, I lost all sense of rationale and logic. It left me rather regretful the next day as I found out that I trashed my camera somehow. I mostly drink for the taste, but the added buzz can be a nice bonus in that I do end up friendlier and more open, and thus sociable. Hard liquor isn't for me though. One shot wastes me.

    I embrace silliness when I'm sober and I'm usually quite chatty and willing to engage with people without drink (especially when the others around me are very open and friendly). I don't have a good tolerance to drink though (I'm only 5ft 2") and there's a history of alcoholism in my family so I prefer not to drink. On a night out I might have one over the course of the evening, as I find people don't bother me or try to force drink down my gullet if there's already one in my hand. Besides, I like the tase of cider .
