    Very easy - I start reading a book or magazine. As Kristiina can testify, I always carry a book or magazine I'm reading.

    Failing that, I probably start sending text messages to friends.

    Same

    I am tempted to say, and, maybe, bust out a frisbee if other people are around (like on campus)

    On a bench I would undoubtedly sit back and just think. On the grass, I might play with some grass or sticks but inevitably I will end up laying down looking at the sky.

    Depends where the bench is. If it's somewhere where there's a lot of people, I might people-watch, or start up a conversation with the person next to me. If not, probably either sketch something (I always carry a tiny sketchbook) or take a nap. Or, if the place is unpleasant, I might just pull out my iPod.

Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."

    Nothing. All situations. I'd even make a conscious effort to draw as little attention as possible. Just stand or sit still for as long as possible.

    I either start staring into space, just thinking about w/e, or call someone to chat on my cell.

    If it's a park, I'd probably walk around, so I won't be so bored waiting.

    that doesn't happen to me very often. i hate waiting on people. but, when i do, i can't help staring at passers-by. even when i'm reading, i just have to inspect everybody in my visual range. i don't necessarily judge them. i just like staring at them, at times making sure they don't realise they're being watched. i'm always in the hope that they do something out of the ordinary (make a backflip, rob a bank, get arrested). anything to get my adrenaline up, to get my curiosity going. i sometimes recognise them from one of my previous watches. they sometimes recognise me, but most of the time they don't. ihave got a pretty outstanding visual memory so it's always fun to cross paths with an old face. it's real interesting because the ones i tend to remember are the ones who performed weird things in front of me. i know more about them than they could ever imagine. it isn't as fun when they remember you though. i'd rather be completely incognito.

    ipod.

    If I'm expecting to have to sit around for a while (like if I take my daughter to the park) I bring a book or a crossword puzzle or something with me.

    I live in a fairly small town so I often see someone I know when I'm waiting somewhere, in which case I might get into a conversation.

    Sit and stare into space with my arms crossed and a cross (or high) look on my face. I'm not kidding.

    ISFj I guess.

    It doesn't happen to me often because I'm likely to be the one someone is waiting for...I have some problems with being on time unless it is a very important meeting (in which case I arrive super early).

    But let's assume I'm waiting for someone. I'm initially likely to be quite restless. Bored perhaps. Scanning my environment trying to find something interesting. Tapping my fingers. Looking at people. Possibly walking around but as likely just sitting still feeling restless. Eventually I might lose all interest in the outside world (if there is not enough exciting happening) and get absorbed into my head. Just thinking about random things. Going into a sort of trance like meditatitve state. I can do that during long travels and flights and such. I can spend considerable amount of time in that state. But I do that only after I have lost all hope of anything exciting happening around me.

    I am very unlikely to start communicating with people. I might communicate with the people who I am waiting for though (using phone). Asking them when they will arrive and trying to make them haste a bit.

    I wait listen music, thinking/dreaming about whatever things came into my mind and look at the ground generally.

    I generally people-watch. Sometimes I stop and experience the feel of the wind, breathe deeply or notice the sun on grass, reflections, the way light plays through branches, leaves; I especially like to watch water fountains. Cascades, ripples, etc. And of course, I ruminate.

    Sometimes if it becomes a lengthy wait, I'll use the iPod or take out a food magazine (I usually have one with me) and peruse.

    That sounds like , doesn't it?
    That's what I usually do, too, anyhow. I may also wander off in my thoughts.
