    *Playing video games -- current favorite: Rainbow Six Vegas 2 (Xbox)
    *Looking up information online -- yep; tend to do it in intense surges, rather than spaced out
    *Writing fiction -- no
    *Drawing -- a lot when I was younger (actually thought of art school); now whenever I feel particularly inspired and have the time
    *Computer Programming -- nope,
    *Studying Philosophy -- yep; like Tao Te Ching, subjectivism, memes
    Tao Te Ching
    YouTube - Dan Dennett: Ants, terrorism, and the awesome power of memes
    *Learning Mathematics -- not great at it but currently reading "Godel, Escher & Bach" (deals with the nature of systems and thought)
    Gödel, Escher, Bach - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    *Reading fiction -- never much interest; liked Clancy's "Rainbow Six" and "Without Remorse"
    *Reading comics -- attracted to the artwork, nature of characters and storyline, in that order
    *Reading the newspaper -- rarely; maybe for cars or some crime that makes me think about poetic justice
    *Watching television -- fair bit (usually while also on laptop); Bill Mahr's good; not loyal to any shows really, other than Seinfeld; like jeopardy (prefer to keep that on the low); prefer movies

    I love making things (sewing, cooking, baking, building, etc.). I love working with my hands... gardening, playing the piano, writing songs, etc.
    Music is really important. I also play in a band.

    SP's don't like getting too abstract (even when we talk about abstract concepts we keep it concrete, tell anecdotes about the subject, state opinions -- we don't philosophize typically).

    I also love learning languages. I enjoy learning and my interests go in spurts... a few weeks creating a massive family tree on ancestry.com obsessively, a few weeks studying the structure of Scottish Gaelic, a few weeks of working on a new song, etc. I switch around a lot and when I'm bored, there are always a lot of interests/projects to fall back on.


    Also, how inclined/disinclined are you to the following activities:
    Playing video games I like 2-D style games (Nintendo), puzzle games (like Tetris) and car racing games. I don't do it hardly ever, though. If I had a game system I could get obsessed...

    Looking up information online I do this all the time, quickly and easily.

    Writing fiction I love to write but find that I am not very good at plots...

    Drawing I draw photorealistic pencil drawings.

    Computer Programming Nope.

    Studying Philosophy I have skimmed, mainly for the sake of my INTJ brother. Don't enjoy it.

    Learning Mathematics I like basic math... that's it.

    Reading fiction I more enjoy nonfiction - but some fiction can be good.

    Reading comics Sometimes - but mainly funny stuff, like Calvin and Hobbes, or the old Donald Ducks by Carl Barks.

    Reading the newspaper Would if I got the paper. I read the news online.

    Watching television Love it when I wanna relax.

    Nice to meet someone else who thinks so! And also an SP. Interesting... Glad I mentioned it.

    Also, how inclined/disinclined are you to the following activities:
    *Playing video games - Love them, video games are amazing, like almost every type.
    *Looking up information online - yes, I do this often. Like exploring websites for information and such.
    *Writing fiction - not really inclined.
    *Drawing - yes, i like to draw, and am good at it. I used to love drawing even more as a kid. I would have made a great cartoonist.
    *Computer Programming - Yes, I enjoy it ONLY if i know what i'm doing. If i don't know the language well, then I'll find it frustrating trying to do the program.
    *Studying Philosophy - Don't know much about philosophy but from what I do know, it seems like a very interesting subject that I wouldn't mind studying.
    *Learning Mathematics - Meh, I don't really like math, but I'm very good at it.
    *Reading fiction - Not a big reader, sometimes I read but not often.
    *Reading comics - I'll read them from time to time but normally don't find them too funny.
    *Reading the newspaper - not really, I'd rather look up the news online.
    *Watching television - I like watching tv if something good is on. But if something good isn't on, it's kind of a waste.

    I usually like doing...whatever in my spare time. lol. I love spending time with my bf though... Yay cuddling! :'D

    But he lives far away so it's kinda hard. Usually when I'm not on the phone or IMing him, I'm making gifts or doing artsy stuff. I also just like getting up and dance or make alot of noise. I'm mostly pretty boring. Haha.


    *Playing video games - not so much. I'd rather get up and do something instead of sit around.
    *Looking up information online - I do this ALOT.
    *Writing fiction - Nah, I'd like to, but it just all stays into my head.
    *Drawing - I love drawing. I don't have much time for it nowadays but I get alot of relaxation from drawing.
    *Computer Programming - Err... not my cup o' tea, really. It is for my bf though (he's an ISxP too).
    *Studying Philosophy - depends if it's interesting enough or has some use.
    *Learning Mathematics - gross.
    *Reading fiction - I used to ALOT when I was younger. Now it's more of a thing I do when I'm super bored.
    *Reading comics - If they're amusing enough and I have nothing to do.
    *Reading the newspaper - Sparingly. Or when I'm in a room filled with strangers and there just happen to be a newspaper lying right there next to me.
    *Watching television - Ehh.... used to alot, but not so much now. I hardly do. I'd rather do something with my hands or talk/hang with my buddies. [: OR! Surf online. Haha.

    *Playing video games = NEVER
    *Looking up information online = EVERYDAY, for WORK and PLAY
    *Writing fiction = NOPE, I'D RATHER DO INTERESTING THINGS IN REAL LIFE
    *Drawing = YUP! FOR WORK and PLAY, AT LEAST A FEW TIMES per WEEK
    *Computer Programming = YES, SQL Programming, A FEW TIMES PER WEEK
    *Studying Philosophy = DID A LITTLE, GOT BORED, WENT TO THE GYM
    *Learning Mathematics = I KNOW WHAT I NEED TO, I CAN LEARN MORE IF NEEDED
    *Reading fiction = THAT REQUIRES SITTING STILL
    *Reading comics = SURE, A SHORT TIME COMMITMENT, UNTIL I GET BORED
    *Reading the newspaper = A FEW TIMES PER WEEK, JUST THE FRONT PAGE and the CLASSIFIEDS
    *Watching television = HARDLY EVER, IN THE LAST 15 YEARS I HAVE WATCHED LESS THAN 24 HOURS of TELEVISION, I GUARANTEE IT.

    So what do I do other than the stuff above?

    * Workout at the gym 3 times per week
    * Jam on my synthesizers and guitars
    * DJ in my den with headphones on while the kids are asleep
    * B.S. with my friends over a few cocktails
    * Work in my yard, I freaking love plants, trees, shrubs, etc.
    * Do side jobs to make extra money, whenever possible, money is always good to have around!

    I can't sit still very long, I just don't have it in me. If there's action nearby, I'm in it. Boredom and hunger are the two primary evils of my existence.

    :-)

    I've suddenly become interested in auto racing.

    But not the ones where they just go in a circle. Does anyone here know about the ones where they actually have some variety in the tracks? I dunno what any of them are called, but I'd like to watch one of the variety ones.
