    Si takes in the 5 senses whereas Se acts it out
    I think any function can play into enjoying the outdoor or camping - Se enjoys quick fast outward gratification which is different than enfp a enjoy scenery - but perhaps it's just me

    I like taking in the view - the smell - the warmth of the fire during night time and the light breeze of wind morning time
    Getting lost within thoughts day dreaming or reading on the hammock during the day time
    Gathering around with friends around the campfire playing truth or dare or 2 truth and 1 lie ( no function can describe that)

    Whereas my husband enjoys hunting - archery shooting down glass bottles .
    My esfp cousin hates camping and prefer the beach along with many Sp users I know

    Actually, from an Se users POV, that is rather inaccurate.

    If we are to boil it down to it's essence, "sensing" is about bodily senses.
    It's not so much about acting something out, as it is about taking something [e.g. an experience] in.

    Se is drawn to the intensity of the experience. (low stacked Se - more easily overwhelmed - I believe)

    Si on the other hand is more on the personal (or subjective) experience the object/experience creates.

    On a different note, I love camping to. Even if it may be a bit more rugged, I sleep better in a tent.

    Tent snuggling is always the best.

    See my Si at work, attaching personal experience to an object or moment.

    Just kidding. Think of them as fluffy bunnies throwing themselves at you. Nothing to really be alarmed at.

    @miby, I’m with you: Zero interest in camping. None. I feel the same way about hiking. I think nature is gorgeous and smells good but I grow quickly bored and annoyed by the physical discomfort. I’d much rather walk down the streets of Granada or Paris, people watching and listening to an interesting podcast on my headphones than tramp about in the wilderness. I’d much rather lose myself in incredible art at a museum than in a forest.

    I haven't camped many times but I liked it and I enjoy being in nature, in general. It brings inspiration and good feelings. I have a house in a rural area, surrounded by farms and the sea so I'm used to the bugs, but it's a serious concern when out in nature for sure. Hygiene is more of a habit so I think it's up to us to kinda adapt for a bit and see the lack of it in a more positive way, besides you can prepare for it better by bringing cleaning supplies and stuff. Tho americans are a bit obsessed with showering right? lol
    Also you can just choose a camping site that is equipped with toilets and showers and have a more moderate experience, no?

    It's going to depend on who I'm with and what type of camping it is.

    Camping in the wilderness while backpacking is different than camping at a KOA or with a large group of people.

    My favorite camping experiences: Baja Mexico, on a small secluded beach off a dirt road. All kinds of tide pools--I saw octopus, and a coyote carefully stepping rock to rock through the surf to look for food? A lot of giant caracol shells in the shallow waters, and scattered on the beach.

    Baja was interesting--I saw sand dollars larger than we have here up north, and when the tide goes out there are all kinds of strange creatures in the sand.

    Camping on the beach is easy because you don't have to worry about sleeping on hard/rocky ground. There also is usually a lot of food nearby if you eat fish. Making bonfires on the beach to cook the fish and shellfish you catch is also very pleasant.

    Alabama Hills: Eastern side of he Sierras with really interesting giant boulders, where a lot of westerns were filmed. There were feral horses there and they would come up for apples and pears. Swimming holes and rivers--peace and quiet. Large junebugs and blooming white yucca flowers. Interesting archaelogical sites in the owens valley.

    I also like cabins though--they are a bit easier and way more luxurious. Cross country skiing is beautiful. You can just glide over the sparkling, rainbow terrain. Ice crystals are beautiful. It's a bit intimidating being in an environment that's really kind of hostile (because you could freeze or fall into an icy river), but it's still extremely beautiful.

    So it's going to depend whether the 'camping trip' is sitting around drinking beer with loud people who like to listen to super loud country music and just bbq all the time, or if it's exploring the wilderness and getting peace and quiet.

    I like some types of camping.

    I tend to think of camping and sleeping in a cabin as similar--here's something that looks amazing and like it could be part of a fun camping trip.

    Like I have no idea what context of this video is, but in my mind they went out exploring nature all day, gathered a bunch of morels, then when they were resting back at the cabin in the evening they found the morels releasing spores. (it could be similar if they were in a tent and not a cabin--but who knows, could be their house).



    Nature can be very surprising and interesting, since it's always changing and full of secrets. That just looks like so much fun. I want to find nature's secrets too, and camping facilitates that.

    I do like to pitch a tent every now and than
    I haven’t camped in 40 years
    My idea of camping is staying at a out of state hotel with a king sized bed, air and cable television
    Oddly enough I was thinking of posing this question on here
    I know many a people’s aged 45-70 who camp 15+ times a year

    I do adore being outside and going for the occasional walk deep into the woods
    I do so to enjoy the solitude while observing nature

    I don't know what's up with that.

    I adore camping. I enjoy being out in nature, seeing the scenery, experiencing the wild, water, trees and greens. Even all the uncomfortable aspects of it like bugs, heat, lack of electricity and man-made stuff makes it a nice and adventurous experience for me.

    It inspires and motivates ideas in me let's say for a book I'm writing or just plain imagination in general.

    My ESTJ dad and brother go camping and back-packing on the regular.

    I highly doubt that's strictly an Se thing.

    Any type can like or dislike camping.

    I'm adventurous and moving on from novelty to novelty...You know? Like a cliche ENFP gal lol.

    Like Benevolent said, the outhouse/ bathroom situation bugs the hell out of me. I'm no good at fishing as I have too much empathy to be willing to harm creatures in that way. But as for the rest, I used to enjoy camping as a child and I really wish I could do more outdoor survival type stuff. I'm soft from living indoors all the time and I despise being soft.
