I would say for me, my perception of my life is easy. At least in comparison to how I see others perceive their lives. I try to just roll with the flow of things and not stress out about the things that are out of my control; and to control those things that are within my grasp. It seems to work for me I guess.

I rewatched Saving Private Ryan and revisiting that film puts things into perspective on how easy my own life is. I don't have to make the choices a soldier makes during war, the kind where your own morals are challenged by the harshness of reality where its life and death.

That's the other reason I consider my life easy. I'm not dodging bullets, I'm not chained to a wall, I'm not starving, etc etc etc...

Easy Livin'.

There are people in Africa starving from hunger, people in Syria getting bombed (with fucking chemicals herp derp), Russia enters the medieval age with their new anti-gay law, etc etc.

And I'm sitting here with a cold beer in a warm house.

I'm playing an easy game on a "special" difficulty level. Like, the difficulty of the game on this level is dependent on a ton of stuff. I'm pretty happy with the layout I got; can't see myself wanting to ever change it.

God mode isn't an option?

Many have tried, few got close... but none have succeeded unless you count Jesus, but the dude was born with debug options already.

We can mention the Olympic gods, but that family of idiots each have their own inter-family relationship issues.

Life is too easy, I need a change.

Right now I am just working enough to pay the bills, then using my free time to do whatever I want, which is usually sitting in front of my computer reading stuff on the internet, tonight it happens to be this.

Who knows, maybe I will start dating again, that should make it more rough. Also it would be fun to take a few classes, maybe just audit, homework sounds troublesome.

Easy as fuck: I have food, a place to sleep and a place to shit. All a human really really needs.
And then I have a shitload more for which I don't have to do that much.
I'm not spoiled at all, but if you look at it from a hobo perspective, yeah I'm a spoiled little brat

Easy.
Especially when I stop and think about how much I sweat the small stuff and not the big stuff.
That's just existential shit that enters my head during a hangover.
Safe neighborhood, easy job with security and enough money to live on. It's just me vs my brain basically.

Hard as fuck, considering that I was born with very nearly every disadvantage that a person in my demographic can have.

Sure, it's easy to say that, being a white American male, I was born with advantages 2/3rds of the world's population doesn't have, but being born a poor white American male trying to climb an eroding class ladder, leveraged to the hilt for a college education that hasn't turned out to be so useful? An unsociable white American male in a job market that requires extravert-level super-sociability to survive and thrive? Wealth and privilege are relative to a lot of things, and relative to the society I was born in, I carry the burden of the wealth-and-privilege short stick.

HARD. Being a transsexual INTP woman and society is HARD to me, mmm, I choose the nice PINK color in the bars too.

Cause I don't like people judging on me and trying to change me.

In my identity and my 'own being in behavior'.

Cause society controls and views me HOW woman I am for them. Argh ...

Nota : They try to take the Honey-spoon to put a vagina in me (with their small minds).

I'd say, I'm living the medium life.

The biggest obstacle is myself, which transforms life from easy to medium. From a material perspective -> I have everything I need and don't need.

I voted medium, but I sort of regret doing it. Normal would be more on the mark, not because my life is easy (though I still have no right to whine about it), but because everything seems to be harder these days. Yes I do face a lot of challenges, but I was born in a prosperous country and have a half-decent support network, and I have to remember that. After all, those two are big things to be thankful for. If my emotional and work-related states were a little better I would honestly have no right to complain at all - in my eyes, all you need is comfort and love.

Still the social challenges a lot of INTP's face do pose difficulties no matter how privileged a category we belong to, not to mention they can be taxing on our emotional resources (way more important than many people give them credit for).
