What is a Hedonist personality type?Page 1 of 1    
Can someone please explain what it means when someone describes their personality as a Hedonist on here on their profile?

So what exactly is a Hedonist? What are their actions and what makes them a Hedonist.

This person is my ex. I'm on a dating site and happened to notice he is also on it. He chose Hedonist as his personality type. He professes to looking for a Long term relationship. He isn't a drinker due to having to abstain due to being an alcoholic. He doesn't have a lot of friends and from what I know after being in a relationship with him for a year he wasn't the type to party hard or anything, he did however lie, keep secrets and was inconsiderate of my feelings when making decisions and would not consult with me or consider my feelings in regards to certain things.

Is being in a relationship with a Hedonist a bad thing or destined to fail?
Don't quite understand this Hedonism personality type and now I'm curious to know how they are different from the norm.

A hedonist lives his life for himself and everyone else can go fuck themselves. Basically.

quit creating new threads about it, there's no point

Well... you stated that he's a recovered alcoholic... substance abuse is a guilty pleasure. Sex addiction. Whatever turns his crank that not necessarily everybody would agree with. A hedonist basically just wants pleasure in life.

I'd think that your ex probably doesn't even know what the true definition is. He probably just randomly picked the title during POF's sign up process without really giving it 2 thoughts.

But in the end... why's it really matter? He's an ex. You've moved on to bigger better things. :)

OP, you really should consider removing that child's photo from your profile if your intention isn't to involve her in any hedonistic ventures.

OP, your profile describes you as
"Personality: Adventurer."

So, you have climbed Mt. Everest, correct?
No?

Then maybe you are misrepresenting yourself, OR
maybe you should google "self-described,"
Since that is all the Personality Type indicates - a self-description.
Meaning it is up to each individual to define as applied to him or herself.

Me ... I would interpret the term Hedonist as code for NSA Sex.

Hedonism has nothing to do with sex. It's a concept that somewhat falls under virtue ethics, but somewhat opposes it

Hedonism is derived from virtue ethics, which is where moral value is determined by "virtues." Basically explained by a positive result. Hedonism says that virtue has no intrinsic value, instead, the pursuit of happiness is what drives moral values. Basically, pleasure vs pain. And pleasure meaning positive emotional response and pain meaning negative emotional response.

Hedonism basically questions: What will make me happy? Is it better to diet and exercise every day so that you can live an extra 5 years or is it better to just relax, eat what you like, and just take life as it comes? THAT is what hedonism is.

It doesn't mean no strings sex. If a hedonist doesn't enjoy sex with random girls, or feels unfulfilled from it, then he's just not going to do it.

To give a great example, watch the movie The Big Lebowski (written by someone with a bachelor's degree in philosophy). The Dude is the textbook example of a hedonist.
