    Default Being Satisfied

    Do you often experience the feeling of being truly satisfied? I can never seem to be truly satisfied with what I have most times. Though it seems illogical, I sometimes take the "I want more or nothing" with people. I know, it's pretty bad :/

    Im satisfied most of my adult life. As for people or should I say women, I get bored too quickly and I think it is my problem. Im not even sure I want "more" I just want "something different".

    Often, no. I have experienced this, however. I'm starting to develop a worldview where it's good to be happy with what you have and push whatever morish desires you have somewhere you can deal with them later.

    EDIT

    That could be really depressing, actually. I guess "the trick" is to mentally filter for all the good stuff so it looks like things only get better and better.

    idk...i doubt that anyone feels satisfied most of the time. it's like the human condition always to be wanting more of something or other.

    but the details of the level of satisfaction could be connected to leading functions...like for me, i'm only satisfied when i've got some big project going that has a lot of possibilities. so, i keep one in the hopper at all times....but sometimes they don't work out, then i'm not very satisfied.

    but maybe you look for satisfaction in relationships...that they are working well...near perfect? *shurgs*

    ILE

    those who are easily shocked.....should be shocked more often

    Yeah, I see what you are saying. Maybe for Fi people satisfaction is based on how their relationships are at a given time.

    Hmm I feel the exact opposite. I know that because Se is my hidden agenda, that I would instinctively want more, I think most EnXj here experiences the robotic nature they seem to have to fulfilled this desire, especially the E-3. But maybe it is the Ego vs true self that I often have an Inner reflection that I can be very happy with very little. Sometimes it turns me on to see and think about how one doesn't need much things to survive.

    A girl I was dating said she was oh so great at sex etc, but she didn't do blowjobs.
    My reply: Oh I'm really romantic etc, I just will never take you out to dinner.

    I rarely feel "truly" satisfied and when I do, it's often short.

    Which reminds me of an issue we've tackled before.

    It was when we talked about Fi, and how what I said made you feel like (or realize that) you should slow down and pay attention and cherish the essential things in life, or something along those lines.

    it's funny because I have a feeling Calenwen would say the same thing. An ISFj also told me somewhere along the line that money does not matter. There are some rather ambitious ISFj's tho, my mother is one for example.

    I've never been happy.
    It was in the reign of George III that the aforesaid personages lived and quarrelled; good or bad, handsome or ugly, rich or poor, they are all equal now.
