    i like science fiction, it is great! i haven't read any sci-fi in a while. i really like Ray Bradbury's books a lot.
    i can get pretty nerdy about Star Wars sometimes, it is awesome.
    The 5th Element is the best sci-fi movie though.

    i am not really into fantasy. my wife reads lots and lots of fantasy books. she loves her some fantasy. she is an ISFP.

    I said yes, but it really depends on the quality of the product regardless of its label. Just cause it takes place in another world with magic or advanced tech or alternate history doesn't make the human journey less realistic.

    Hell, I've read/watched "realistic" stuff that was way more fantastic than "fantasy".

    well, of course quality matters. i can't think of anything off the top of my head, but i'm positive that there have been a number of fantasy/sci fi stuff that i just couldn't take.

    Sci-Fi, yes a lot. Fantasy, not really. A few Sci-Fi/Fantasy mix can be good though, but I usually dislike pure fantasy. The only one fantasy novel I have read is LOTR, wich is boring for the most part, and it's less boring than the average fantasy novel. But I liked the movie very much. I've also read Bilbo the hobbit wich is quite nice and try to read The Silmarillon, but too much boring. In tohers hand, I love Sci-Fi and Fantasy series made by Joss Whedon. I'am also a Star Wars geek and Expanded Universe aficionados, but I've never considered Star Wars like Sci-Fi, but more as a pure Space-Opera with some fantasy element (not in an abusive way). I've disliked most part of Sci-Fi blockbuster (like Alien, Avatar or Matrix for example) and I've never seen anything of Star Trek, I've never been interested with. What I can't bear is all theses metal band who are inspired by fantasy/scandinavian universes , that's totally ridiculous and disgusting. Plus it's horrible music.

    Actually, I'am a Buffyverse, Star Wars Universe and Dune Universe aficionados, so I guess I'am quite Sci-Fi/Fantasy geeky actually. There was a Star Wars Convention in Paris in 2007 and I regret to not have been here. I want to go to the 2017 Star Wars convention and I'm often wandering about what could be my disguise, lol.

    News of my practicality is greatly exaggerated. Probably an I"s"FP like you. Or maybe Quin is on to something.. like it's a "Fi-Ni" thing. Because what I'm mainly attracted to is heroism/idealism. Be it historical/realistic/ or fantasy. If they are stories based on someone real (like Joan of Arc or Robin Hood), then they are much more cool and personally inspiring.. but.. I'll take fantasy and sci-fi too.

    Haven't read much though, outside of Dune and Conan books. I've tried Lord of the Rings and Song of Ice and Fire, but couldn't keep up with them - but I liked the LOTR movies. Also like games or anime on that angle. Lastly, I used to read (and draw) comics when I was a kid.. kind of got out of it by my teens, but most of the comic movies made nowadays are cool.
