    Default Ti and Sudoku

    I think Sudoku is a activity. It's a great way for me to fulfill my hidden agenda while still honoring my PoLR by wasting my time.

    For what little it's worth in terms of significance, I enjoy sudoku.

    Re: Dolphin's caustic remark.

    "It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the man who is actually bent over the puzzle, whose spine is deformed and hunched over, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again until the eraser has all but worn off his pencil; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings and eraser smudges. The credit belongs to this man who strives to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a haze of numbers 1-9, who at the best knows in the end the triumph filling in the vacant squares and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while misapplying his at great length. So that his place shall never be with those efficient and hurried souls who saw their time better spent on less useless activities."

    If you're sat on a train, and you've read the paper and you haven't got your laptop, it's good to pass the time.

    Seems it has no bearing on someone's type whether or not they like it, even though I'd attribute its idea to Ti.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    my interest lasted maybe 3-4 weeks. i was in california at the time and this guy i knew had stacks of LA times, i figured why not use the puzzles in them. then they all started to fall into patterns id seen before, so i got bored.

    my dad, who i believe is ISTj, does them for hours.
    whenever the dog and i see each other we both stop where we are. we regard each other with a mixture of sadness and suspicion and then we feign indifference.

    they replaced crosswords for me when I'm speeding and my friend is on her computer giving me nothing to do. not like a bigtime hobby or anything, and I'm sure like everything else it'll get boring soon enough.

    For some reason I just never "got" sudoku. Not that it's boring or anything, but the whole structure of the puzzle with its already "half-completedness" annoys me.

    Not to throw the topic off or anything, but i've always been interested in Kakuro. Shame it only comes in the paper once a week.... On the other days, I just do the WonderWord in the N.Y. Post.

    I like Sudoku. I do well with Sudoku.

    If I happen to see some random newspaper with a blank Sudoku puzzle and I happen to have something to write with, I probably would do the puzzle.

    But, I'm not so addicted to it that I have to go out and get a book full of Sudoku puzzles.

    I enjoy them though, fwiw.

    I don't see how you could manage to complete a sudoku puzzle with your PoLR. It's as impossible as Diana solving those logic word problems presented by Serano in the Delta subforum when she suffers from the role affliction. These things baffle the mind tremendously.

    Yeah, I've been trying to think of how it is that I'm able to do them.

    I've always enjoyed logic puzzles, and done fairly well with them. Though, again, I'm not so enamored with them that I feel like I have to run out and grab a bookful of logic puzzles. But, I do enjoy them quite a lot.

    Honestly, I think it's because of how I use to solve the puzzles. The procedure that I happen to use when I solve a Sudoku puzzle I think is based.

    I agree that is a activity. It's a great way to exercise your brain.

    Also, the best computer version of Sudoku I have ever played is called Zen of Sudoku. It's one of the most relaxing games I've played.

    I like them. My SEI friends likes them too but my ESE husband can't stand them. Doesn't have the patience and can't bear to "waste" the time. I find them calming and distracting. They pull my mind away from whatever it is that I shouldn't be thinking about. Great way to relax.

    I'm gonna go with "Sudoku is not type-related." But if you like it, it is probably still beneficial to everyone to explain the circumstances you do it in, and why you like it, as some have already done.

    I've done Sudoku a few times, but I may have only actually completed one once. It seems a bit pointless really...especially when you've filled the grid in with a biro and you realise you've made a mistake. It'll probably stop you all from getting Alzheimer's though.

    Whenever I rub something out on a newspaper, it usually makes the paper all mucky. If I'm lucky, I won't tear a hole in the newspaper. I have Neanderthal hands, unfortunately.

    Well I agree with you there--I don't do them in newspapers and not even in those cheap books with thin paper for that very reason. the paper does tend to tear. lol good point.

    I like that on the computer. I had a pda at one point and I had Sudoku on the pda and I'd do it when I was sitting in airports or whatever. But then I couldn't be bothered to drag the pda around with me.

    I remember seeing what I surmised to be your hand in a picture you posted way back when of the sunset. It was in the thread about the sun coming out. Although it was only a passing thought, I personally felt it more closely resembled the hand of Cro-Magnum. But you may be the final remnant of a long dead race, who can tell.

    What I like about sudoku as opposed to crosswords, is that everything I need to figure it out is just in the box. I do not have to be able to interpret the clues and draw upon ambiguous knowledge of the crossword puzzles.

    i tend to agree only because anytime something becomes so trendy, i question the validity of typing someone based on their enjoyment of that trendy thing.

    on another note, i learned today that a group of apes is called a shrewdness.
    whenever the dog and i see each other we both stop where we are. we regard each other with a mixture of sadness and suspicion and then we feign indifference.

    I thought I had rather delicate and dainty hands that look suspiciously like they have never done a day's work?

    For such a slight, I am going to have to point out that the taxonomy of Cro-Magnons was actually Homo Sapiens (though rather thuggish looking ones), and not Homo Neanderthalensis.

    My dear Subterranean, this was my point.

    No one understands me today.

    (Although I did not mean to imply your hands were thuggish. I agree in fact with your first statement about them. )
