    I met about five people I went to high school with last year. I think I gave the girls a kiss on the cheek. Going full euro style. Not sure about the 5' morbidly obese girl though, I probably didn't. oops.
    One of them is a trailer park Liz Hurley. She fine until she opens her mouth, then it's like an Alan Bleasdale drama. Every other word is cunt. I don't think Professor Henry Higgins would be able to help her.
    I even hugged my old gay friend after a 25 year spat. That Guinness is a hell of a drink.

    Oh hell no. I would have to be pretty wasted and the music has to be really good, which I very rarely find. I was at a concert just a week or so ago and people in our group were dancing to stuff that I don't even consider danceable to (Band of horses!?)
    Even alone, I'm not getting anything out of it and in public, what am I demonstrating? - some cave man demonstration that my body is functional, I have stamina etc? yuck. I used to go clubbing (apt) with colleagues when I was young and sometimes
    What kind of music would you consider danceable? I find it curious that there's this idea of dancing for the sake of other people, which I guess there is some truth to in a club situation, but really the point of it is to groove out to good music and have fun. It's not exactly fun if you're thinking about how everyone around is judging your dance moves (which is a barrier to enjoyment if you're in the dorky white guy category like us). Better in an anonymous crowd at a concert where you can let loose. There's a thing called No Lights No Lycra near where I live, where they black out a church and everyone gets their groove on in the dark. I'm going to give it a go, I think being in the dark would act as a good disinhibitor in lieu of substances.

    hmm tough one, depends who it is. If it's a woman, then sure, smoosh those boobies onto me. I've been trying to improve my hug game, there's a definite skill to just the right amount of lean-in and where to put your hands and how much to squeeze. I think fat people naturally make good huggers, but lanky beanpoles like myself it can be awkward.
    You've gotta learn the art of a proper man-hug. Not the half-assed kind where you both awkwardly pat each other on the back.

    Somehow Australian culture migrated to kissing the opposite sex on the cheek in greeting over the last decade or so. I actually find that kind of awkward and cold, like it's not really a genuine expression of anything and might as well be a handshake. I default to a hug with people I know, but some people have their internal rules of social decorum so I have to keep a goddamn mental map of the princesses who won't do hugs.

    (Also maybe we need a series of threads Drunk INTP or just INTP, Not Drunk INTP or just Drunk Me, Not Drunk INTP or just Drunk Me, ...)
    Well being drunk just lowers your inhibitions, so drunk INTP is really a subset of INTP, or maybe even a truer representation of not drunk INTP. I do all the above as not drunk INTP, although I will say that LSD is amazing for dancing, it lowers your inhibitions and puts you in touch with your physicality and your primal self. I haven't tried interacting with children on it, but I can only imagine that it would be awesome.

    INTP or just not me:

    - Sometimes I watch car shows and I like them
    - I love dancing
    - I prefer a hug to a handshake
    - Some children are not completely terrible
    - Most of my clothes aren't black
    i bolded the parts i relate to.

    i HATE handshakes. i much prefer hugs. i'm just afraid when i initiate hugs the other person will find it violating of their personal space if they're kinda standoffish or come from a culture that doesn't do that, but handshakes are just so empty-feeling.*

    i also don't hate children (lol, not an intp thing IMO though) and i really hate all black outfits. i do like wearing black but too much black looks juvenile.

    * my fav greeting is the casual bow that south koreans do & i honestly wish that would catch on but nobody does that here. intps could like that cuz it requires no touching but i imagine some intps would hate it cuz you're showing respect to random people you don't know you have a good reason to respect yet.

    I wouldn't say it's for other people in my case, but I've got to feel it and like you allude to, the mood would have to be just so if you weren't otherwise in an altered state. (hmm, reminds me of Josh wink, higher state of consciousness, I used to blast that track out of my company car)

    Here's a few examples (ooh! a list opportunity) of things that I feel like I should move to, even if it's just some butt dance from the driver's seat of a car:

    I want to know what love is, I want you to show me.
    I already made you a mix tape above, so technically we're already going steady.

    - I'll watch the odd car show, like those makeover ones, but only if one catches my interest while channel surfing
    - I don't love dancing, but I'll do it and not hate it
    - I'm fine with either although I don't initiate hugs. I've never cared about the personal space INTP thing.
    - Some kids are OK
    - Clothes mostly not black. Just dress pants and the odd shirt. Too damned hot in the sun for the most part. Black jeans have no reason to exist.

    Aw, I didn't even realise I needed some D&B in my life. Some great stuff in there. When I went on a D&B kick about a decade back, hospital records was my jam. I don't know how well known Nu:Tone were in the D&B world but I loved them. Seems your taste in the genre is along the lines of cinematic / transcendent / uplifting. It's a pity we never had much of a D&B culture down here, because it seems like a lot of fun to dance to.

    Re: man hugs. Going from what I learned from my time with hippies, the idea is to bring it in, and hold beyond the time you'd otherwise start to feel awkward and pull away. There's this sort of internal defensive barrier guys put up around each other, and going beyond that limit of "how much hug am I comfortable with" in a way shatters that barrier and allows you to connect in a more meaningful way. Basically you allow yourself to feel something from the hug. I know an introvert might read that and think "why would I even want that?" Maintaining social barriers costs energy and creates anxiety, and it's freeing to realise you don't need them. It's also kind of empowering not to have your masculinity defined in traditional terms of being invulnerable to intimacy & feelings. Fuck, I think I have to revoke my T status with this post.

    Heh, I might try that with my son. I will report any anomalous results.

    So if I were in the supermarket together with someone and the queues were really long (like say New Year's Eve or something) I wouldn't have one of us queue immediately while the second one shops and afterwards have the second one skip the queue with the trolley to where the first is in line.
