Lying, sometimes, when I get away with it, that feeling. Stealing and getting away with it. Maybe it's just a gambling thing, you know, risk-reward. Course, I always prefer a chemically-induced high.

Good music, movies, books, visual art and so on.

The clicking sound you hear in your head when something suddenly makes sense where it didn't before.

absinthe is natural too..

- good music (the making of, the peaks & piques of, the live osmotic absorption of, listening to, dancing [flailing] to, running to)
- stargazing on a blanket in the yard
- rare first-edition signed books in locked glass cases
- the smell of those books
- that part at a party or nondescript social engagement when everybody goes home
- watching dexter, woody allen films, and charlie kaufman films
- the luxury of sleeping enough to remember my dreams
- neck massages, lately
- stabbing hobos

Personally, reading/researching something i find interesting gives me a major "runners High". Anyone else experience this? and anybody know why this happens?
Running.


I think what you are looking for is: Flow (psychology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I don't think it's comparable. I don't become relax after fulfilling my required INTP duties, I become more excited. However, after a longer and intenser run (or returning from a break from running), my body feels profoundly relaxed. I drive/stroll below the speed limit vs. the accepted/expected speed limit + 5 mph, my ability to focus on anything increases vs. jumping from idea to idea, my legs feel warm with keenly-aware body movement vs walking from Point A to Point B, and I have an overall calmer attitude. It's more than being super-engaged something interesting. It also feels much better while and after.

  • Solving an interesting problem
  • Having lots of manageable tasks with close deadlines
  • Walking into a library with lots of time on my hands (or into a book shop with lots of time and money on my hands)
  • Playing a good tennis match

Good music, time alone, studying something of interest, getting a flash of intuition that solves your current problem...

Learning something new.


Being "in the zone" while playing TF2 gives me a natural high as well. Those rare times when it seems like I can't miss any shots and I'm always in the right place at the right time.

Very evil Black metal and beautiful ethereal Post-Rock.

that, and freedom speeches like the one in Braveheart.

"they may take our lives, but they will never take our freedom"

...goosebumps everytime
