    Default Red Bull

    Extraversion in a can. I swear, I can outperform ENFps with that stuff.

    Why is it that I never experience any sort of mood alterance after I consume such things? Or am I just not paying attention to it?

    The only time I'd drink Red Bull is if my suddenly packed it's bags and left my brain.

    It's an energy drink for introverts, really.

    You have to be extraverting first, and then you only really notice it whenever your introverted friends get exhausted and stop responding to you, yet you feel like you could stay up all night.

    Also, it makes you want to just act and not think or reflect or do anything mental.

    Alright, I was addicted to red-bull for about a month. I stopped drinking it and went through a withdrawl which made me enter a dark realm of internal horrors and fears the likes of which i have never before experienced.

    Now cone, I'd like to see footage of you behaving like that, it would probably be one of the funniest things I have ever seen in my life.

    Maybe your withdrawal phase was the depths of introversion!

    I have two states, really: super-introverted or super-extraverted. I noticed that I am much more on-the-spot creative when I extravert.

    An INTp super-extraverting. Have you ever seen such a thing?

    Cone, that's a really interesting point!

    the INTp I usually think of when imagining an INTp doing anything is a biology professor I once had. Thinking of him on red bull would be really hysterical.

    Hey, Waddles, I have a videotape of me and my INTp and INTj cousins in extraverted mode. What's your mailing address? :wink:

    Now just think of an extravert on depressants.

    For some reason the fad around here is energy drinks right now. Every time someone comes to my house they bring one with! I din't generally drink stimulants.... that's what my ritalin is for!

    I got one ritalin left. I'd say there is alot of sensing involved in it. perhaps every function, too.

    This may sound weird, but on snowy days I pop a ritalin, lay out some paper on the floor and draw robots. Really good, 3D robots.

    as for energy drinks, i find them really satisfying- very quenching. I have some mountain dew stuff in my fridge. its good stuff. tastes like gummi bears.

    I didn't know Mountain Dew made energy drinks. I like Mountain Dew "Code Red".

    When I'm falling asleep at work I drink this: http://www.quixtarxs.com/energydrink.html
    No sugar, so that cuts down on the jitters. It tastes like there's no sugar, though. I don't think they even put the diet stuff in it. I only like the tea flavor.

    I think I've seen sugar-free Red Bull, anybody try that?

    Energy drinks don't really do much for me. Only thing I could think they do is add an hour to how long I can go... But that's too long for everyone else already anyway!

    Is it just me or is it an ENFp thing to go all night and then some, and then a little bit more? I find it frustrating how rare it is for anyone to want to keep up with my stamina.

    It may also have to do with body types. I have a higher metabolic rate than most people do, so I often have more energy than my introverted pals, even other INTps. It makes you more optimistic, also.

    Well Neon, as I get older :wink: I find my metabolism slowing down some and its really quite a comfort to me. Im almost like normal people now . I can even sleep through the night and only wake up once. Im really much more of a morning person though. And yes many people hate me for that. (please refer to my avitar).

    Same here. I don't really go out much anymore, but I'm still the one who could go on forever and a day. We totally have to get together for a night on the town!

    Red Bull helps me to stay awake, but that's about it :wink:

    Red Bull doesn't make me hyper, but it gives me crazy crazy nightmares! I won't touch that stuff anymore!

    That's partly because you are a protein eater and nothng else. Also when you were born you were all muscle and no fat. You could lift up your head and look around as a newborn. Your doctor was the head pediatrician at the hospital and she called in lots of other doctors to come and see her perfect baby. You were a hit!

    There's still not an ounce of fat on that kid!
