    Just wondering if INFJs are likely to do this or not. :) I personally am very bad at journaling/diary keeping.

    I have a paper journal. It gets updated every five years or so, haha. I use my LiveJournal account a little more frequently.

    Well...yes and no. :)
    I do enjoy writing...and very much so. I love writing down my personal thoughts and feelings but I don't necessarily do it in an organized and systematical way. I just do it whenever I feel like it and I don't really have a journal that I keep all of my "entries" in. Sometimes I just write little phrases and sentences that I come up with on some program on my computer and save them lol. So I guess I do, but I'm not good at it either lol.

    I don't keep a diary anymore. I did when I was in elementary school for a while. Then someone found it and read it. I learned from then on not to keep one anymore.

    I haven't kept a regular diary for many years, but I do write my thoughts down when I need to, in journal form.

    I don't, and I don't think I ever did. But I'm not much of a writer.

    I have a journal to release any emotional tension I have.

    Or just have ruin when I am angry like no other.

    I only write journal when I have something I want to remember, like a great vacation or some more or less extraordinary experience.

    I don't like shallow diarys ;) by that I mean like "today I got up and .... bla bla bla" type of diarys.

    I keep a shelf full of journals, actually. And I love reading the old ones. I write down whatever I can't express to people. I have to. When I don't have a way to write, I start to get severely depressed.

    Hmm, that WOULD be really nice to be able to read back on your life. I hadn't thought about that.

    I don't keep a journal, maybe I should try. I don't think I would write in it except when I have some sort of extreme emotion/inspiration.

    Do you write regularly?

    I have
    2 scribble pads (one is for mostly to-do lists, the other is for random songs, poetry, and sometimes journal entries)
    1 paper journal
    A "notepad" document on two different computers
    And random multiple word document journal entries.

    So yes. I really depend on them. I was actually goin to write in a bit.

    I used to keep a physical diary, but I had problems with people taking my stuff, plus I would misplace it, so I tore it up.
    I sometimes write blog posts on myspace, merely for my own records as I've had trouble remembering things for the past year in part to medication.

    Or I could just make my life easier and journal online where they can't find it in my room and open it and read it. :D

    Yes, I often write and reflect about what's going on in my life, or just do free-witting it's quite rejuvenating when your in a morose mood or just bored.
