Conflict may bring out the worst in a lot of people, but there is no fight unless there is something worth fighting for. I'm not condoning war or violence, but I believe that there is a place for it in the world.

On the main subject, I guess what I find fascinating is trying to figure out how things work, whether they are mechanical or intellectual. Pretty general really.


Hehe, I was actually referring to the war on the forum. And okay, I accept your disagreement, but I disagree with that. There are things worth standing up for and advocating, but there are no things that humans have the ability to determine are worth killing for, in my opinion.

I also like figuring out how things work. :D

I just remembered one thing that fascinates me...I watched videos on youtube about Hitler, his speeches, etc. I really find it fascinating how he could influence the masses the way he did....it´s like he hypnotized the people cause they all acted like zombies lol....really fascinating!

They're not much different from the sheeps who voted for Obama or supported Romney or <insert political leader>.

People are a bunch of herd animals. If a group of people likes a certain idea more will follow. They don't even have to know anything about a political idea to support that political idea. The sheer fact people endorse/hate x will make others endorse/hate x.

The best argument against the law which allows all citizens above 18 to vote, is to have a conversation with random persons about a certain political idea they seem to endorse. It's extremely pathetic.

Yeah....

Another thing that fascinates me is how extroverts manage to socialize that much and yet they also manage to work/study, do their hobbies, read, follow movies and music, etc. That´s really fascinating. If I socialized that much I would never get anything done! :D I had to take a pause from socializing to have more time for my hobbies and doing things that I like....I wasn´t able to follow new movies or music that came out (that I usually love to do) because of the socializing, lol. I guess they function differently.

Sunny, that's a great point. I feel that way about Es, Ss, and Js. Well, SJs at least. My ESFJ mom just does so much stuff; I have no idea how she does it all and still has time to socialize.

There's give or take 16 hours in a day (minus the average eight in which you sleep...). That's a lot of time to do a lot of stuff. ;)

Also the hobbies you mentioned, but also work and studying are social happenings to an E. Our hobbies and work cover most of our social needs.

:D Except when you're dead, you'll probably be fascinated by not-morbid things to counter it :P

Then you might like to visit the Aokigahara Jukai forest, roughly translated to "sea of trees", AKA 'Suicide Forest'. Its a forest located at the flank(?) of Mt.Fuji, Japan, I believe. They find anywhere from 50-100+ bodies a year. Many of which are ones that have decomposed and have been left to rot for years.

Erm, I'm the same. :oops:

Ever since I was a kid I've been fascinated with skeletons, mummies, bog corpses...you name it.
When other children drew animals and flowers in kindergarten I drew digestive systems.

One of the most interesting things I've ever done was attending an autopsy, once the initial "what if I freak out?" worries subsided I was totally absorbed by the procedure.

What fascinates me ? Colors in the landscape, especially when the sun sets or when it rises.

I love cosplay and the whole kawaii thing. I've been to Japan around 20 times. I'm also fascinated by Buddhist temples, of which there are many in Japan.
If the truth hurts, you ain't livin' right.

Hmm, old threat, not sure if its ok to post now but oh well.
I am fascinated by culture and knowledge. I am often looking up things of various different topics, little things catch my atttention and I investigate the hell out of them, I like to be as cultured and knowledgeable as I can, I know I know nothing but I like to consider meself a little enciclopedia.
Why does it has to be that way?

IT's ok to comment on old threads, There's nothing wrong with what you're fascinated in.
