    Have you ever done any outdoorsy activities? Have you done them as part of a volunteer program? How do you think that relates to introverted sensing?

    Have you ever done anything off-kilter, or unexpected?

    Very rarely. And I usually feel guilty afterwards.

    It really depends. At best, I find them to be a cathartic and healing presence in my life. At worst, I find them infuriatingly stubborn and illogical.

    More so than I would like to be. I tend to get too invested in things, so I get upset when they get messed up, or when they don't go the way I wanted them to go.

    Do you resent that fact?
    Yes, and yes.

    I'm more obsessive than I am neat, to be honest. You would expect someone as obsessive as I am to be more neat and tidy. But my default tends to be "organized mess". I know where everything is, but it's in piles, everywhere.

    Oh yeah. I love the outdoors.

    90% of my outdoorsy activity time comes from running -- I like running outside much more than running inside, and while there aren't that many trails near me, I have loved it every time I've gone trail running.

    I don't have a car and therefore don't have easy access to nature, but when I have friends to drive me / accompany me, I love hiking, camping, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. This weekend I went cabin camping (is that what you call it?), hiking, and alpine scrambling, on a notoriously difficult hike, and it was amazing.

    I keep telling myself I'll do more outdoor volunteering (e.g. planting trees), because I've really enjoyed it in the past. But part of the problem is that I would rather do that sort of thing with friends.

    I actually see it as the antidote to introverted sensing. Being outside, doing physical things, etc, makes me more mindful, and gets me out of my head. I imagine that Se-users feel similarly, but then again I don't have a good understanding of what Se means other than being "in the zone" with regard to real-world senses/experiences.

    Maybe off-kilter or unexpected in the eyes of others. But I see most of what I do (with some embarrassing exceptions) as being consistent with who I am, and what I value.

    Meh. It depends.

    I tend to gravitate towards movies about detectives, police, and non-gladiator historical warrior types like Shaolin monks and samurai. Action movies are my go-to fluff genre, for when I need a pick-me-up.

    Brain chemistry? Heredity (nature + nurture)? The "spirit", if there is such a thing?
