Anything we want to do...

Really, if it interests you, pursue it.

Not sure what interests you? Try something to get off of dead center.

Fun fun fun...let's see..probably the normal things like reading, games, movies.

I don't really like creative writing though...or essays. I like doing research but not the actual writing of the essay part. I guess I enjoy learning about interesting new things.

I also like to organise things so that they are in the right categories.

What may differentiate fun things for ISTJs compared to other people may be in the details.

For example with games, I don't like it when they rely on luck/chance, I like being able to influence what happens instead of relying on fate.

Socialising is also not on the top of my list on fun things to do. I'm fine with having fun alone.

I guess I find this forum fun :crazy: Because I see it as me learning more about myself and others as well as helping other. I'd much rather do this than engage in meaningless chit chat. That being said, I also enjoy meaningful conversations/ advice giving with close friends.

Fun? That'd be me letting loose of most of my restraining functions to just relax and do something out of the ordinary (no, alcohol is never included). I can only achieve this with people I know and trust completely.

An example would be me and a friend on a car trip somewhere, some silly, inappropriate or child song on my car stereo, music turned up loud, car windows down, us screaming along with the lyrics and leaving people thinking "Youth nowadays" or "What are they thinking?".

Another example would be going crazy on the piano with people around. I love entertaining people musically or comically - both at the same time is perfect.

Generally it's anything where I can act completely silly and laugh at myself because it's so pointless. That's what I call fun.

Watching and coaching sports are fun for me. Not only does it keep you in really great shape but it can be fun to get to know some of the kids who play too. Essentially, any type of physical activity can leave you feeling pretty good.

Inside, I prefer searching the web for interesting news and playing video games. Reading is also quite fun if the story is interesting. Overall, I'd say ISTJs enjoy simple yet rewarding activities.

what i think is fun, others say 'it's so boringggggggggg'.

i have lots of fun post processing my photos, doing sports, yes even playing my Nintendo DS games etc. my passion though, is (enjoying) delicious beers and taking photos of each and every one of them! i could spend all afternoon in my favourite pubs and not speaking to any strangers.

That reminds me of something that I wouldn't say I enjoy doing, but I don't mind using it to pass time while others might find it very boring e.g. editing images by cutting the background out. I can do that for hours at a time, perhaps because it involves similar repetitive steps and it also involves focusing on tiny details which I enjoy in a way.

My dad loves watching sports and building stuff. He's also fond of cuddling with kittens. No joke. :proud:
Watching sport? Only if I am trying to connect with a sports buff. Personally, I'd rather watch grass grow. (This attitude probably comes from viewing sports as "fluff" and not being really what life is about. But to each their own.)

Kittens? I love kittens! (cuddle, cuddle cuddle, purr, purr, purr)

Well "back in the day" my dad was very athletic. Now he doesn't really have the time, energy or circumstances to play, so watching is the next best thing.

Aw you SJs have a warm fuzzy side!

Kittens and sports are both good :tongue:
I love my cats (as much as I hate them being in the bed and spreading cat fur everywhere I still tolerate it because I like how they all like to lay near me) and let's just say that I worship at the church of NASCAR on Sundays. (Oddly enough, I don't get into other sports like baseball, basketball, football, etc., although I DO like bowling, target shooting, etc.)

I like researching stuff. I start out just looking up different types of cameras and I can get so engrossed in the detail that the next thing I know I'm reading about how the lenses are made, and what make the best type of lens. And branching from that I like to walk outdoors and take pictures, which was why I was looking at new cameras in the first place.

We are talking about having fun Niss. Fluff is ok, its recreational. If I forced myself to do something productive at all the time I would go crazy after a few months.

And yes Kittens are cute, but I love little dogs, white ones like my Bichon Frise. Though she's an old dog I still consider her a puppy, and she looks that way.

Oh and boo NASCAR, yay basketball.

I like recreational and productive.:crazy:

I try to believe that some people actually enjoy watching sports--I really do. It does take a great deal of faith, though.
:wink:
