    INFJ's - hobbies/interests

    i was curious to see if interests and hobbies have any sort of "correlation" or "connection" with personality type. why not? =P

    well, the things i like doing most are: swimming, writing, going for quiet walks in beautiful places, listening to music, reading and writing stuff on this forum (lol), photography and dreaming.

    im interested in the world, languages, cultures, people, life, love, philosophy etc.

    please write your interests and things too! ^^

    All of the above actually, except I have never been on a swim team or really devoted myself to it at any point in life. Something to add: Film and Cinematography. Sometimes I'll watch movies just for the lighting and film technique.

    Composing instrumental music and learning music theory, watching anime, psychology (specifically cognitive-behavioral psychology), learning things in general, lots of other things.

    My favorite hobby is sleeping :D Nothing takes away the stress of the day like passing out for 3 hours straight in the middle of the day. It's like pressing the reset button on your emotions.

    I enjoy reading as well... the genres I'd say I enjoy the most are science fiction and historical fiction - prose is an excellent thing, but I have little taste for poetry (though I try to overcome that distaste). Short stories are also enjoyable (I'm on-and-off reading a collection of short prose by Kafka). I generally do not enjoy most textbooks, books that are pure theory, business books, etc.

    I love me some video games! It's a pretty okay hobby for introverts! I've recently found myself getting sucked into various puzzle games, because I really enjoy working through to the solutions, and completing them gives me at least some artificial feeling of achievement and self-satisfaction. I usually will also get hooked into a random skill-based game of some sort, because developing the required skills is a fun activity as well.

    I tend to go through periods of activity and inactivity, physically speaking... probably based on the intensity of my studies/workload. I love walking, and if I had a good mountain nearby you can bet I'd be running up that thing on a daily basis (right now I don't, though :() I tend to shy away from team sports because... people get so angry about those things, and I can't figure out why. The thing I'm most interesting in trying out in the future is Taekwondo, the martial arts form that focuses on kicking.

    Oh, and of course, learning languages... but I've taken the route of turning that avocation into my vocation (as Twain would suggest) and I'm working at becoming a translator (foreign languages and writing? All in one? As a job? Yes please.) My current language-love-affairs are German and Mandarin Chinese, but I'd love to learn Russian next...

    Music, painting, writing, and reading have always been my principal interests, more recently psychology (I'm even studying a major nowadays....) and doing strength training yeah (www stronglifts com, recommended site) (sorry I can't post links yet), eating and living as healthy as I can too.... I can also relate to almost all of what has been posted in this threat, and now that you have mentioned it, I really enjoy watching anime, and do it everyday . My all time favorite has to be Neon Genesis Evangelion! Currently watching Death Note, for the 2nd time...

    ooh iv heard death note is good, with shinigami and things. the death ods are the bad guys in death note right?
    hmm, i like to do press ups and sit ups and go for runs, that counts as strength training right? lol

    and yes!! languages!!! i love learning them, i got a game for the nintendo ds that teaches me chinese. its awesome. i do japanese at school too. mandarin is cool, and my brother tried to learn russian..i think its a bit wierd lol

    martial art, i think is amazing. i would love to learn taekwondo. me and my friend decided we will take classes when we go to uni. i think stuff like five form kung fu would also be cool to learn, but the chances of that are slim =P

    wow, so far everyone seems to have pretty similar interests and hobbies! cool ^_^

    eeemmm no... lol... haha...........

    actually the shinigamis in death note are not the bad guys , they're more like the spectators, and the real bad guy (well, kinda, 'couse you end up liking and hating him) is the main protagonist. Its a real thrill to watch it, very clever story....

    In grade school, action/suspense anime was what I found myself watching, and that may be due to the fact that I didn't know what else was out there at the time. In my early teens, I discovered a variety of other genres (mainly thanks to the power of high speed internet). Late teens, it started to narrow down a bit. Now, in my early twenties, I find myself watching a lot of anime in certain genres:

    Romance
    Slice of Life
    Psychological
    Dark Comedy
    Fantasy/Supernatural
    Science Fiction

    Occasionally, an animation outside of what I am used to will catch my interest, but the main things that keep my interest in any story are usually the character development and relationships between the characters. If you are looking for something specific, I like to make recommendations.
