    Default Stereotypical Boardgame For Each Type

    For the SLEs and LSIs - chess. Monopoly for the LIEs, hahaha. Frustration for SEEs.

    Can anyone think of any others?

    I must be Beta ST, then. Chess thoroughly defeats all comers.

    SLE-Ti subtype defo. And maybe Risk too. Of course, an SLE-Se would probably rather play:



    LIIs would rather play Settlers Of Catan. ILIs - Kingmaker.

    Edit: I retract the ILI comment after having just heard what niffweed said about chess.

    My favorite game like that is Scattergories. I really like Boggle too.

    I don't really like games. I used to enjoy playing chess a lot, but I mainly just played it with my sister, and it became way too predictable what each of us would do when. And she would draw out the game as long as possible because she knew my attention span would give out sooner than hers, so she usually won that way when I made a stupid mistake. I did rather like mahjong (actual mahjong, not the computer version) when I played that.

    I don't know if I fit the definition of slacker. But "slacker mom" has a specific meaning.

    Not exactly but the general idea - I'm not worried about my daughter being perfect and I want her to just be allowed to relax and be a kid.

    Although she does take soccer lessons. That's it as far as lessons go, though! Most kids I know take gymnastics or dance, soccer, swimming, and some kind of more cerebral thing like art or Spanish. And these are 5-year-olds. Kids take lots of classes these days. My daughter didn't take any classes this summer. People thought I was neglectful! But summer is the only time we have nice weather and she can play outside and have fun, so I didn't want her time taken up with classes. IMO the value of classes is for kids to have exercise during times of the year when people aren't outside much.

    I would never force my kids to do anything - I'd make suggestions and urge them to work hard, but I'd never impose. The less limits, the more mature they become.

    I rarely use this expression, but "God bless you!"

    By the way, I like card tricks and some card games like 'makao' ('crazy eights') are fun to play, too.

    I think this is a game for the xNFxs in general, mostly Ni + Fe.

    I never thought of chess as SLE, I could see LSI and LII for sure though.

    scrabble used to frustrate me although i considered myself some wordsmith for a long time. i used to play when i was trying to master several foreign languages. and i'd think of some word and i'll be damned if every time it wasn't listed in the official scrabble dictionary.


    i still play a lot of literati (yahoo!'s version of scrabble.)


    and i love monopoly!! such a freakin' great boredom buster.

    i got hooked into backgammon a long time ago as well. i still love it.

    my good friend who is possibly infp is really into board games. he is a great chess player and loves board games in general. it is more from his family playing them a lot when he was kid than being a type thing. develop enthusiasm > enjoy > become good --type unrelated.

    I think Gammas should have "Life." Actually they can have "Monopoly" as well. Deltas can have "Star Wars Monopoly."

    Betas can have jump-rope I suppose, even though it's not a board game.

    Same here.

    I have played chess in the past, usually during trips with other people, or situations where there was little else to do but play something or read a book. But given the choice, I much rather read a book. I played usually because someone else wanted to play with someone. But I consider spending a few hours playing a game of chess as time wasted.

    In Germany, or in South Africa with Germans, I played a lot a three-person card game called Skat. I've read it's also played in Wisconsin. But it's a game that flows very quickly.

    Hahaha, Monopoly for ENTj.

    Yes.

    Let's see... Snakes & Ladders - ESFj.

    I used to play a lot of card games and Monopoly a lot with my brothers when we were younger, it was great. Especially when we were travelling and in between during long airplane flights, we had this little mini travel-Monopoly board and a dozen other travel-version of the board games, like Connect-4 and Reversi/Othello (gr8 game).

    Me, I love board games(esp. Monopoly), and I like playing board games a lot... especially with friends and family. It's such a great recreational activity.

    chess is tailor-made to NT's. I love it, along with reversi. I think LII and ILI are much more prone to it than SLE and LSI.

    Okay, before anyone else disagrees any further, I retract my original statement about SLEs and LSIs being the best chess players. Clearly I was wrong, and NTs are the better players.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.
