    I live with another ESFJ and we're both pretty much alky's.
    I couldn't see this related to type though.

    I doubt this is related to type either, but it will be amusing to see nonetheless. But I seriously doubt that my favorite drinks will be correctly matched to the LII.

    I don't drink. I never quite saw the point of drinking per se but I liked the euforia it created at parties.
    Well I am back. How's everyone? Don't have as much time now, but glad to see some of the old gang are still here.

    I pretty much can't stand alcohol... gives me immediate headaches that last for the next 24 hours. I used to like it though when I was a wee billygoat

    There is drinking to get drunk (or getting that certain girl drunk) and then there is drinking for taste. There is also social drinking at parties, but it is often so interchangeable with the first category that it is practically the same. But often when you drink for taste, you are usually accompanied by a good small group of close friends.

    I rarely ever get drunk, I usually don't like when I get really drunk, but I love just sitting around playing poker, bowling, or pool when i'm drinking.

    I can never understand why people like alcohol or how they can become alcoholics since it doesn't taste good.

    people with slower metabolism and more body mass may enjoy alcohol more since the effects of the drug last longer and have less immediate negative effects like headaches, and extreme drunkeness. They need to consume more though. I'd say sensors enjoy alcohol more, or are better at tolerating it since more often than not sensors have more body mass and slower metabolism than intuitors. I enjoy the drug, but i get terrible, puking hangovers and within hours of drinking have mindnumbing headaches from the drug's dehydrating effects. What can I say? I'm a thin man with a very rapid metabolism. A stereotype of the intuitive man.

    I love drinking socially. Just drinking with friends and chatting at a bar or cafe. It's very relaxing. And alcohol kinda "relaxes" people (depends how much you drink), and you sometimes get to know people a lil more. Of course I don't mean them getting drunk and talking crap.
    I rarely get drunk, probably because I don't plan to.
    O.. I've never gotten a headache after drinking, not yet anyway, don't know why.

    It's an acquired taste. I agree that if you start drinking stuff like whisky, it does't taste good since the only "taste" is that of the alcohol. If you get a bit used to drinking wine, for instance, you stop focusing on the taste of alcohol and rather on the taste of wine, which added to the "sting" of alcohol, and its slow effect, add up to a unique sensation.

    The same with beer -- once you get used to its bitter taste, you start to enjoy the fine taste underneath, an appreciate the effect of alcohol.

    Now go and drink.

    I occasionally swallow a shot or two of liquor to alleviate a headache or anxiety after a long day of work. Probably about once a week and don't enjoy it, but it has it's uses. Don't do beer or wine.

    Prefer the herb, which I would use every day of my life if it were around.

    I used to really enjoy it but lately not so much. I find it tends to exaggerate my mood at the moment and lately my mood hasn't been very high so I get quite depressed and emotional whenever I drink. One day of heavy drinking can ruin a whole week for me. I dont know if that happens to anyone else? I'm about ready to give it up except for the occasional drink.

    I don't think this alcohol thing is related to type...but anyhow, I like to drink every so often. I like beer, light and dark depending on the mood, and I like mixed drinks. Long Island Ice Tea, Sex on the Beach, those are good because of the content of alcohol, and I don't have to drink a bunch of bullshit just to get buzzed. Sometimes I just do a few shots of tequila to get the "woooooo!" feeling started quickly.

    My drinking habits are random, and I normally don't drink for consecutive days, unless the type of drink changes day-to-day...which it doesn't because I'm not 21 so I work with what I get.

    <----------------likes alcohol and drinks/goes out 2-3 times a week, but I don't drink unless I'm going out. My ISFj dad likes to drink and does so every day, but it's probably for a completely different reason. I think a lot of ISFj's like to drink to ease an inner tension they are feeling. As for me it's just about having fun, and I won't drink unless I'm around a positive crowd.

    Yeah, it really is just about the same thing with other drinks such as tea or coffee. The only real difference is the alcohol behind it. And whiskey is not all that bad once you get used to it (especially in coffee).

    We actually get along rather well. Not in a deep way, but more in an "activity" partners type way. Which made me think that there is a slight possibility that he's an ESFj. A bunch of things make me think otherwise though......

    Like Expat said, Any alcohol is definitely an aquired taste. Many people at a young age that start drinking, do it because it's just cool and they wanna get drunk. later on, people do it because they actually like the taste and the feeling (or lack of it) that it gives you. I myself didn't start until I was 20 years old and if it hadn't been for a promise that I made to a friend a few years earlier, i'd probably still not drink... but that's a different story.
    the first time I ever had beer it tasted like pure shit, and now after becoming a beer/wine drinker... I've found that natural light and miller high life, really are shit...hahaha.
    But now, after drinking beer for about 7 or so years... along with every other alcohol... I've found things I like and things I don't, much the same as someone who likes lemonade but not sodas. Not all alcohol tastes the same and finding something you actually like is kind of the hard part.
    It's funny how here in Oregon drinking is a very big part of the social norm around here. When I think of all the things that have alcohol as a large part of them it's amazing. I go to about 5 or so beer festivals a year, maybe a wine, food, or music fest downtown or other things like that also, I go wine tasting with friends about once a month, and most of my friends actually brew their own beer. It's cool when brewing beer because we go sit around watching the beer making while drinking most of the last batch that was made the time before and grilling some steaks. I never really get drunk doing most of these things but it's a huge part of my social life. For some reason, everyone's always in a good mood and it's always a good time...

    I don't like drinking personally. I've never been properly drunk, although I've been about halfway there on the one or two occasions I've actually drank. I just don't like the taste of either the alcohol or the alcoholic drinks.

    FWIW, I seem to take on the effects of alcohol if I'm around a lot of people who are drinking, including the morning hangover (I've never had a hangover from the couple of times I actually drank). I don't lose co-ordination or anything like that though, it's probably a purely psychological thing.

    I have about two drinks and I'm out. I'm a cheap drunk. One will do it if i haven't had anything to eat beforehand. No joke.

    I've never been a fan of beer or wine, mixed drinks can be highly addictive such as bloody mary's...not sure how someone could say those aren't tasty.

    I drink socially, on occasion (which is very rare, I might add)... but definitely not to get drunk.

    Huh, how do you lead to this conclusion? xSFp's general attitude towards alcohol contradicts this notion, to give one example of ethical types where there are plenty of examples that don't act this way, if you are in fact saying that rockclimber's attitude is common for ethical types.

    Let's not forget, alcohol is a drug that serves as a social device, and for many people, also a relaxation and coping device, as several other uses. No matter how great alcohol may taste, almost all adults who drink alcohol aren't just drinking it for the taste; alcoholic beverages are things with multiple benefits to the user. As for myself, I do drink a moderate amount of alcohol, although I have only been drunk a few times in my life. I practically never started drinking until a year ago though, which compared to some of my peers, is tad bit above starting age. I never drank alcohol in High School, and at my first college, even though there were people drinking, never even thought about it. I never saw the appeal to getting insanely drunk, or just drinking alcohol to just get drunk or tipsy; I need something to taste good and be refreshing to drink while at it. While some of my friends will be content drinking from kegs and mixing vodka with some random soda from the soda machine, I attempt to consider flavor an important consideration when drinking alcohol, attempt being the key word.

    And yes, it is an acquired taste. I can drink whiskey and beer and enjoy it. I have a harder time dealing with non-chilled wine for some reason.

    I don't mind being buzzed, tipsy, etc. My behavior does obviously change when I drink, but it's something I don't really mind if I am in the right mood when I drink. I can't drink too much when I am in an irritable mood though, I just end up getting upset. That's why I save drinking any amounts of alcohol greater than one 80% concentration shot worth of alcohol for the start of weekends or special occasions. When I become authentically drunk, lets just say I get crazy.
