    Default Question: How do different types spend their free time?

    ... and especially how that relates to their first function.

    What do you think?

    Kindly,
    Function 1 is what a dude/girl is the most at ease for inputting, processing, and outputting, whereas Function 2 is more output-based than input-based.

    Basically, any type likes to spend time :

    - Activities that involve inputting, processing and outputting information from Function 1.
    - Activities that involve adapting content of Function 2 to Function 1.
    - Activities that involve inputting from Function 5.
    - Eventually, activities that involve Functions 4, as some kind of "challenge".
    - etc.

    But concretely, It's pretty difficult to define what activities are more -related or -related.

    btw: you don't have to write "Kindly," everytime, it's pretty redundant.

    I don't know how this relates to my first function and I'm doubtful that all of this relates to it, but I usually spend my free time doing one of the following:

    - Playing computer games
    - Browsing this forum
    - Browsing other internet sites I frequently visit
    - Learning to play an instrument
    - (on the rare occasions I can force myself to do so) Going to the gym
    ... I think that's it.

    Playing computer games, I do because I enjoy them. Browsing this forum, I think that's obvious. Browsing other internet sites, reasons depend on the site. The instruments I learn, I learn because I enjoy music. Going to the gym I've been doing since a health scare a while back, but it's not something I particularly value.

    So, in all honesty, I don't think any of that is really tied to Ni exclusively but rather my individual...meh, I dunno what to call it. Either way I'm doubtful this is type related, but I could be wrong of course.

    I'm too embarrassed to answer this question. But I'll think about it in general.

    You should still give examples pertaining to you or other IxTjs and Ne creatives. I still found that thought provoking, though.

    I would say I spend quite a lot of my free time thinking, and finding material to think about :/

    I like to read up on things, I also like competition and going out. Otherwise I am a workaholic.

    I actually only spend a few hours on the computer in my "free" time - the rest of my surfing is done at work in between projects.
    My free time activities would include small group discussions, reading books, hiking, playing pool/frisbee/ping-pong/hackey-sack and other free-form games that can be played noncompetitively ('cause I just like to play), concocting strange things in the kitchen, Chi Gong & weightlifting, freestyle dancing, climbing trees and buildings, and splorin (trying to find nearby places I've never been to).
    Does drinking beer count? Oh, wait, I guess it would if I say it does. So, add drinking beer!
    BTW, even though I've mentioned a bunch of physical activities, especially during the winter, the majority of my leisure is usually spent reading or in small group discussion.

    I have several things I've done for a long time, like making clothes, drawing, painting, reading, and in the mean time I spice things up with whatever pops into my head. Like going to a rodeo. Haven't been to a rodeo before. That might be cool. Might also be boring... but it's worth trying once, right? If I haven't done it before, it's fair game. I love exploring. Once I just got in my car to drive to a road that had the reputation for being the ugliest street in America. It was warranted. But I also found the 'Mall of India' and poked around in there for a while... Yeah, I tend to love any sort of exploring... I also like to roam around random bookstores, parks...anywhere really. I guess I'm the sort to throw a dart at a map and go there.

    Go to beach
    Watch satellite tv
    Walk
    The rest is jusy hanging out with all of my friends
