    Jung coined the eight functions as a tool to aiding the individual approach to therapeutic sessions.

    As a philosophical pole of operation, extraverted intuition is a driving force of the gamble.

    I will say, I did not intend to isolate the phenomenon explicitly down to slots.

    Possibly; then again neurochemistry, genetic predisposition, escapism, and any number of possible triggers could as well.

    True you may not have but the OP set the scope of the thread.

    I don't find the fun in it either. Because there's no mental strategy involved in things like slot machines, it's just dull. I can't learn from it.

    Card games are a different story. Even then, though, I don't bother. I don't have spare money to throw into a past time like that.

    I think this is more of a J/strong J thing since this kinds of individuals dislike inefficiency and muddy logic.

    I don't know about the SJs but apparently my ESFP grandfather-in-law is an expert gambler. Just like the Kenny Rogers song.
