Although, it's kind of weird because I will go through phases where i become really non-materialistic and i look at all the overly expensive stuff i have and I can't believe i ever bought it, and it seems really pointless. but i dunno lately i have definitely been more of the former.

    thoughts?
    Sure; MBTI types are composite guesses about the way you tend to prefer thinking/acting on average. Being really into physical things is a more S than N characteristic, but Ns exhibit S traits all the time and vice versa.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I order jeans from this cheap teen catalog because they're the only ones that are ever long enough, and consistently fit/stay at the same cost for the most part. No need to go to stores for anything more than minor things like socks, etc.
    Hell I haven't even bought any more of those for a year or so now.

    I wear my trusty converse sneakers (same shoes I've worn since childhood ) til they fall apart.
    And most of my clothes. Patched. Repatched.

    I wear a wallet on a chain, keep my keys clipped to it.
    Fuck handbags.

    And getting manicures/pedicures are out of the question.

    I cut my own hair. It comes out better than it did when I paid proffessionals.
    Yeah, it's pretty darn classy.

    I don't collect things. Never saw the need to. I don't count books/music/movies in this statement.

    I'm not into jewelry at all, unless it's a plastic spider ring I've won from an arcade. Or a RingPop. Cuz candy is awesome by default.

    I'm not into all the latest n' greatest technological gadgets. My phone was free. No iPod for me.. I still use my ole walkman & love to create mixtapes for friends.

    I don't buy tons of posters for decor. I don't make it a point to color coordinate anything. Floral patterns have no place in my life.


    Furthermore... I despise "knick-knacks."
    It's impossible to put into words how much I can't stand fucking.. knick-knacks.

    I don't care what you do/don't own, wear, drive, or can afford.
    I just care about the thoughts in that brain of yours.. unless they're primarily about your stuff, other people's stuff, and other forms of what I consider to be shallow gossip/a waste of your and my existence.

    What about giving or receiving manicures or pedicures to, or from someone you love?

    Now, you're talking!!!

    I couldn't agree with this sentiment more!!!

    Well, since I personally know several S's (one being my mom) who are extremely non-materialistic, I think therefore there must exists some Ns who are materialistic. So yeah, I think it's very possible.

    Sorry, didn't mean to be overly sarcastic. Just seemed like a silly thing to decide S vs N for. In fact, on a type basis I would think FJs would be more into clothes etc, due to Fe.

    If you want to know which one you are, you could think about types as a whole (ISTJ will have a different "feel" from INTJ), talk to others of those types here, and think about whether you prefer abstract topics to "here and now" stuff.

    I don't think I'll ever want to make a boyfriend's fingers n' toes purty..
    And hopefully said hypothetical boyfriend won't resent me for this.

    People messing with my feet is weird.
    I don't think I want a guy I'm dating to be sanding off layers of dead tissue from my heels with a special rock.
    Call me crazy, but I bet our relationship would still do remarkably well without having to explore that realm of intimacy.




    Cheater!!!
    Well.. I don't look at books/movies/music as just 'stuff'.. more to it than that. They're works of art that not only stir the senses, but are more likely to be inspirational/thought-provoking than say, a stamp collection.


    But, but...

    Aw, no worries. Plastic dinosaurs are totally an exception.
    Those aren't even really knick-knacks. They're more like.. inanimate friends.

    They're the guardians of your tabletops/shelves!

    I don't think it's specificly N/S related.

    I don't know how you define materialistic, but a materialistic person is usually one who is in hiding (hiding something from him/herself).
