    I can see a bit of a topical thinker bias emerging here, just to buck the trend then...

    I am interested in peoples personal lives, particularly if its someone who I've got a professional interest in or liking for, the information that they impart provides me with food for thought and content to analyse.

    Most of the theories that interest me and topics that I'll post are sociological or psychological in theme so it only makes sense that I'd be interested in people and minutae of their lives, its what the theories are about and the truth of falsehood of those theories can be discerned only by hearing from people themselves.

    I do have a problem with communication styles, I think that feeling and sensing, if they are relegated styles and assert themselves in dysfunctional ways or even if they are dominant functions and people arent self-aware, can make communication difficult whatever the topic.

    this.


    I also dislike people talking negatively about others behind their back. That drives me insane, and I feel guilty just enabling it. So Gossip.

    This sounds more like me. I like topics that have to do with human nature and why people behave the way they do. I love psychology and type theory (obviously). I also love pop culture and music. I like to analyze what the appeal is of a certain trend, or where a trend is going.

    I've never been interested in finance or politics, for the most part. I don't mind discussing religion one on one with a friend, but not with strangers for sport. I don't like to hear the minutiae of a person's day unless I really, really care about them and know they need to vent. I don't like to listen to people complain about stuff that doesn't matter AT ALL, like the fact that their electric bill was $3 more this time. I'll give you the $3 if you shut up.

    Same, though in the pop culture department I'm almost entirely disinterested in typing celebrities. I'm especially a sucker for the threads along the lines of "HELP, having trouble with this interpersonal situation, what's going on?" Or any thread asking for help understanding a particular INFP.

    Favourite:
    literature
    science
    characters (well, duh)
    religion (I've had a series of great discussions with a friend. At the end he converted me. I'm quite happy with my conversion, but I miss those discussions! It just isn't as fun if you've got the same lack of a religion.)
    politics
    parts of culture, mostly the older parts. (I never understood how my classmates were able to recognize 'last year' music from 'this year' but found it difficult to distinguish between baroque and romantic. Come on, there's 100+ years between these styles!)
    myself (yes, I confess. I love attention...)


    Least favourite:
    Children/grandchildren. You've got to listen politely. Probably this will change when I've got kids myself - then I'll listen politely while impatiently waiting on a chance to tell about my children and bore the others to death like any (grand)parent does.
    Other family/gossip stories. Am I really supposed to know who That One is? Well, it's sad that she has to go to hospital but...
    Popular culture. I'm supposed to be interested in whether That Celebrity is gay or not? I'm supposed to recognize them from their faces???
    Politics. Whether it's a favourite or not depends on whether I understand what's been discussed. If people discuss politics on a deeper level than my knowledge... Same goes for science, of course, but there's a better chance you hit the bottom of my knowledge with politics than with science.
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!
    I'm female. I just can't draw women
