    Sure. I don't think I enjoy being busy, now that you're making me think of the two states of being.

    Yeah, I would read, paint and record music forever, try to join projects to show my stuff to people. Be professional about it, which I haven't really tried to. Tho I did participate in some exhibitions here in Madrid.
    When you think of it art is so important and so little people give credit for it, won't consider it a job when its basically as tiring aw any other.
    Yeah, a bohemian lifestyle, can see myself drinking a cup of wine next to my window next to a crowded street inside my 60s dusty cavern.

    being a working artist is a lot of work, it's double the work of just having one mentally unstimulating day job* which is why more people don't do it imho.

    when i say i would work, i'm also imagining creative labor being work. it'd be more on my terms and its value wouldn't be defined by how much money it makes. and i think i speak for many artists on this, that not having to worry about money would be extremely fulfilling, and would help the art.

    * this is in my experience. depends on the job though. in my mind, it's like, working at an office VS working anything and hustling.

    I wouldn’t intentionally work for money. Id likely do a lot of projects, and if money came out of it, then it wouldn’t be a problem.
    I’m not someone who’d sleep all day and watch TV. However, most of my interests and talents don’t make for steady work, so they get put on the back-burner. I also like freedom to experiment and fail. Paying work doesn’t give so much wiggle room.
    Without needing to be concerned with making a living, Id say I might actually produce higher quality stuff.

    I would not work for money, unless it aligned with my desires

    INTP's without work slide into a brown depression. Without an external impetus INTP's rarely get any work done. Ergo, INTP's function best with some kind of external push.

    I'd probably start a company and hire people - that would keep me accountable.

    Hello. It's not so much an afterlife, more a sort of apres vie

    Would I work in the sense of a continued structured atmosphere with management and superiors telling me what to do? Fuck no.

    However, I would do productive activities relative to my interests in which could become a source of income? Yes.

    i think it would depend on what resources were available to me... is owning your own property within the range of a reasonably comfortable life? if yes i would be happy making improvements to my corner of the world and leaving the world to it's own devices... that sounded isolationist, but i meant in terms of work... if i knew it would be secure in my absence i would work on setting up or taking down rainbow gatherings... i think something like that might be a pleasant way to.expend energy... i would probablly try to make something in my freetime... bet inwould spend more time with gaming than i felt good about... honestly any place out in the trees where i could kind of do my thing and be left to make it pleasant is where i would be...
