    Default Socionics types and Excercise

    Okay, I'm not sure if there have been threads on this before, so bear with me.

    So how do different types go about excercise? Yeah, I know that excercise is mostly a thing, so that's why I'm asking all you Ne/Ni/Si folks. How do you go about excercising, and what are your opinions on the subject itself?


    Personally, I like excercising for fun. My ISFj mom does it on routine, and because it's good for you and "you should." As long as she's not pestering me about it, I'll go out and have some fun. I'd rather excercise outside rather then in a gym, and my mom does it routinely, indoors a lot of the time, and outdoors sometimes.

    This INFP fantasizes about excercise. I'm the world's best couch potato . . . but I'm always reading . . . excercising my mind . . . does that count? Worry about my health all the time . . . go figure?

    I really had to force myself to exercise, at first. Then, I started developing a routine of exercise that I enjoy. It really does help with anxiety. When I skip a workout, I always get anxious and self-conscious about my health. If any other NiFe's are reading this (yes, Artemis, that means you) my advice is, find something you enjoy doing (and that physically feels good; maybe weight lifting or yoga, or just walking) and set some time asside to do it. Otherwise, you'll spend all your time obsessing over "I wish I was in better health."

    Thanks. Will give it some thought.

    How come nobody uses color in their posts? This is cool. Can't believe I didn't see it before.

    Well, I do try to stay trim, but it is mostly for the ladies ... that door to the doghouse is only so big, you know.

    Umm... I don't remember the last time tried to excercise more than 3 minutes... socionically speaking shouldn't be odd for a , but I'm sure I can beat any inxx out there on body unperformance, I'm lazy among the lazy so ^_^;

    Unlike Artemis, for me any phantasy about doing excercise is more likely to be a nightmare.

    That was actually a joke, probably a rather bad one considering I really do have a tough time keeping personal relationships going along.

    I always contemplate exercising but things always seem to get in the way.

    But an INFp I know does it very consistently, i assume it is because he does not want to appear unnattractive so battles with himself.

    but yeah, i have also noticed that certain ISFj's exercise alot.

    Excercise for excercise's sake is like catching a cold for the cold's sake: I'd much rather do without, thankyouverymuch. I walk about an hour to and from school per day, and as long as I don't have to think of it as excercise, that does fine for me. I really prefer walking to taking the bus.

    Last time I excercised for the excercise was when I first heard of the concept and thought it might be nice to try out. I worked well. For an hour. Then, I got incredibly bored and decided to go back inside to finish that Gummy Bears movie.

    Know the feeling. There's just nothing in it mentally for me. How do people get so excited about excercise?

    No way. I find him way more understandable and interesting that the Betas. EII types are actually more resistant to things like exersize than IEIs.

    Because IxIs (INxPs) are more concious of their health, and can become neurotic over it. xIIs (INxJs) more often ignore/disregard it.

    i heart exercising. yay for endorphins. maybe its my has to do with my desire to do things that make me happy. that happens to be one of them. . I motivate my best friend (sunflower) to work out. It also helps me feel more confident.

    Maybe you're very resistant to the power of the S darkside.
    Several of your posts have revealed a heavy S influence, though I have no doubt you're N. If you might care to notice, my posts would probably reveal a nonexistant S. They're supposed to be my hidden agenda and PoLR, but I really haven't noticed them a lot lately. Or ever, for that matter.

    @ Rocky: Gosh ... I'm really getting my ego stroked on this site.
    But, seriously, there's no need to flatter me.

    Artemis... you actually do seem INFj to me... I can't say why, and I've been wrong in the past. Darklord... that name's too nerdy to be Beta anyways. Definately INFj.

    I DEFINATELY hear where you're coming from, and Transigent. I have to keep a running dialogue in my head just to get motivated to start. "I really should get up and go... but I have this cramp in my leg... go and stretch then!... but I want to splurge five more minutes on the forum.. shut up and get going to damned pansy, you!..." and so on. Generally once I get myself going, I really enjoy it. I love the endorphin rush, and the feeling that my body is actually working in harmony, and I like getting the fresh air.

    What is really creepy is that "Darklord" actually is the short form. A fuller version is "Darklord of Evil". And my old e-mail is even nerdier ...

    "No way. "

    I wouldn't say "no way," but I definately agree with your general sentiment.

    Wahhhhhhhh! Nerdy?! I love his name. Does that make me nerdy too?

    And think about the INFj thing while I go do some research and reading there. Thanks. :wink:

    I wonder what it is about how I communicate that always seems to turn IEIs against me . Besides, it's only natural for you to find people in your own Quadra more understandable, that's all I was saying.

    I generally walk or run a few miles a day. Not to lose weight or stay in shape but simply because I like to. I stopped though because lately I start to get sick every time I every time I try to eat. If I walk I will get too thin.

    I hate exercise. So boring. And even if I did like it, I wouldn't be able to keep a strict schedule, so what would be the point? I'm already skinny and I walk pretty much everywhere anyway.

    Ha. No, I'm not. That's what I thought at first.... oh shit abortion time! But it has been going on a few months now and I took a test the other day to be sure. I don't know what's wrong with me. I'm to paranoid to go to a doctor though. Ramble.
