    Dancing is one of my favourite activities, and I'm pretty good at this.

    If you try to dance with Ti, you'll look and feel robotic. I've experienced this.

    I think dancing is all about feeling. Since we aren't feelers, this doesn't come naturally. But you've got to feel the music. Let go of all the tension in your body. Let go of your "self". No mind. Just life. Breathe it in. Move in and out with the breath.

    It's about experiencing in the moment. Dance with Se.

    Of course that's much easier to say than actually do. I would think it's easier to practice dancing on your own. Put on some music you really enjoy, let it get into you and move you. Once you're comfortable doing this on your own, you'll forget all about others when you do it in public.

    If dancing is Feeling, then I'm ISTP. I'll just turn to dead weight if someone tries pulling me on to the dancefloor.

    Yeah, that's the funny thing. I play a few instruments as well

    Choreographed, actual dancing: mildly skilled, as I've studied it for a few years. (Hip hop, mainly.)

    Dancing with a partner at an event/club: with a partner I am comfortable with, tend to be silly and have fun with it.

    Sexy dancing and/or grinding: this is practically vertical sex in public. I don't like it, but can do it.

    When it comes to free-styling, I suck hardcore. However, if it's a structured kind of dance, like ballroom or latin, I tend to do pretty decent. I like being able to know what the hell I'm supposed to do, or at least some kind of structural basis. :P

    i agree... i think dancing is best when combined with Se and Fi. you've got to feel it.

    however, i'm not the most brave and i do feel self conscious... so alcohol is always the way to get me to move. i've always been told that i'm a good dancer... but this will somehow make me paranoid. but ultimately, it's about having fun, so you shouldn't be concerned with how you look so long as you're having a good time.

    Seriously, the last time I've ever danced in front of people was back in grade two nine years ago. Funny how we're so good with so many things and yet no 1337 dancing skills.

    I wish I could dance well, but I can't. I never thought of it as "dancing with Ti" before, but I think that's exactly it. I'm just so stuck in my head, my movements come out robotic. Thank goodness for alcohol.
    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.
