    On another thread, Auburn made a useful distinction, so I will post it:

    Pleasure – The real-time event or experience of happiness.
    Happiness – The state of being continually satisfied with one’s existence.

    Pleasure might be taking a bite out of a chocolate cake, while happiness might be a general satisfaction with one’s life, job, etc. So if you sayΒ β€œare you happy?” you’re asking a more broad question that if you askΒ β€œare you in pleasure?” which is asking a more contextual question.

    With that in mind, I would like to explore “Pleasure.”Β  I am curious how different types respond to stimulation and whether there are any type-related trends here, regarding people’s priorities.

    Please copy this list and rate each thing 1-5.

    • 1: I avoid doing this
    • 2: I find this unpleasant
    • 3: I’m neutral about this
    • 4: I find this pleasurable
    • 5: I could do this all day

    You can vote after the dash. At the end, count your score from each section and post it. So your end result will look like this:

    Sustenance – 20
    Eating food I love – 4
    Drinking something I love –Β  2

    … and so forth.
