    Mirroring functions and flipped generalizations

    This might just be a coincidence, but I've seen this in a lot of MBTI generalizations.

    ENFP's are Ne-Fi-Te-Si

    INFJ's are Ni-Fe-Ti-Se

    INFJ's are considered the most extroverted of the introverts.

    ENFP's are considered the most introverted of the extroverts.

    Is this due to the mirroring functions?

    I'm actually not sure. I've heard a lot of types to be considered the most extraverted of introverts or vice versa, so I honestly haven't kept track and thought about it in that respect.

    I'm more like to think that it depends on how developed a person's functions are and how balanced they are in using them. When I'm using mostly Fe, I can seem very extraverted. However, when I'm trying to solve a problem or reflect on a complicated situation, I think I tend to use more introverted functions.

    I don't think it's a good idea to put too much stock on these ideas. It's an interesting theory, but I think there are too many variables on the "introversion/extraversion scale" to cement the idea into fact. Examples of these variables can be age, gender, culture, childhood, trauma, and religious beliefs.

    Regardless of these variables, I really don't find myself or any of the three other INFJ's I know personally to be the most "extraverted" of all the 8 types of introverts, and I can't really fathom what the logic behind the idea would be.

    INTP - The Thinkers

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mirroring_(psychology)

    i think NFPs are most prone of doing this(ENFPs more than INFPs. some small(too small to make conclusions from) eeg study showed it, but my experience supports this). i doubt it has anything to do with ENFPs being least extroverted(in general speech) of E types by average. i think its more to do that Ne needs some unconscious internal processing -> its not perceptions directly to conscious mind like S is.

    never heard that INFJs are considered the most extroverted I type by average.
