    How do extroverts that don't know MBTI see introverts?

    I know before MBTI i used to see extroverts as real people and introverts as people trying to become extroverts.

    Before people I knew found out about intoversion & extroversion, they just thought I was being anti social or that I was really weird, childish, overly shy etc, really anxious.

    My manager at work, an extrovert, has made it kind of his mission to "bring me out of my shell" by making me take the lead in meetings, organize projects and work more closely with stakeholders.

    So I think he probably views introverts as people who are just socially awkward and shy who, if pushed far enough, will eventually discover their true extrovert nature.

    Before I discovered typing I viewed introverts and extroverts as two different types of people, not that one was trying to become the other.

    A bit socially introverted myself, so I understand it. I hate when people act like Cyberpunk's manager. We're all different and that's a good thing. Introverts just offer the world a different set of talents than extroverts. I believe we should encourage people to be better versions of themselves, not just like us.

    For people who have a hard time realizing that people are just different, they tend to think introverts are antisocial, shy, quiet, withdrawn. As a kid my mom called me antisocial a lot and a lot of adults would try to get me to interact and smile more. Some people seem to think it's weird.

    It's fine really, it doesn't happen so often that I can't handle it.
    Plus I get a lot of alone time in my job, I have my headphones in more at work than I have them out, so it's a good arrangement I have fallen into.

    The people I work with are also very supportive for the most part. If I do end up feeling overwhelmed with work then I just tell myself that it's not going to last forever and I just have to get through the next hour, two hours, etc. and that seems to work.

    Thanks for the concern.

    Hello Cyberpunk

    As you say colleagues are supportive, hopefully you can appropriately delegate.

    Imagining you listening to something as a counterpoint to employment via headphones.

    I am an ESFJ who has been learning about MBTI. I cannot speak for all extroverts, but I have always seen introverts as closed doors. I have always been curious to know what is behind those doors. I want to get to know what is inside. I guess that we have something in common and I am curious to find out what that is. I have always wished that they would speak their mind. If I think their jerks, that’s fine. I just would like to know who is peering back at me with those eyes concentratedly studying me. I am an open book. It just started making me also wonder what they have to hide as I am learning more. Or is it that they have been burnt? It just makes me curious.

    No way, some of the I's run their mouth and do more outlandish things than the E's I know.
