extraversion

  1. Extravert forced to be introvert & vice versa?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    What are your experiences when you were an introvert forced to socialize and maybe even thought you were an extravert? Or maybe you're an extravert who doesn't have friends (me) for several reasons and had to learn to be alone? I think the first example is more common in US and Canadian...

  3. Fi vs Fe

    Cognitive Functions
    Fe - Wants people to like them even if that means allowing people to have an inaccurate perception of who they are as an individual. Fi - Wants people to have an accurate perception of their individuality, regardless of what people think about that. Fi - Wants people to view them as they view...
  4. [ESFP] 100% e

    ESFP Forum - The Performers
    Dear fellow ESFP's, As we all know, we gain energy from interaction. Most actions performed on our own drain energy since there is no one to share the experience with. I've read many articles about the different types and also the balance between E and I. People say that there is no such thing...
  5. Introversion vs Extraversion - Music

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Hi All A conversion about preferred music style/type/genre has sparked me to think about how Introversion and Extraversion influences peoples choices in music. My friend, an ENTJ doesn't like much of the music I enjoy, which I kind of expected. She seems to generally prefer music that has...
  6. [Enneagram Type 5] INTP 5s vs. ENTP 5s: How do they differ?

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    I recently changed my MBTI type to ENTP from INFJ and I've been getting a bit of flack over the combination; so I thought I'd ask how the two types differ. How does being a Ne dom 5 differ from being a Ti dom 5 Iknow that the biggest problem obviously, is that people tend to sometimes wrongly...
  7. Advantages of being an introvert?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Throughout life (I'm only 20 lol, so I know I that sounds stupid), I have always tried to find acceptance in myself and who I am; convincing myself that it's ok to be different - everyone is a "weirdo" in their own way - after all, if everyone was identical they wouldn't be different people. I...
  8. Introversion or extraversion? Help me!

    Cognitive Functions
    Hi. I'm new to this site and I'm looking for some help in deciding between introversion or extraversion as the attitude of my dominant function. The problem is that I seem to have contradictory traits or habits that have made it hard to pick one as more definite: I regularly need time alone to...
  9. [ENTP] Extraverts' social dependence on people they despise

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I really don't like an immense majority of the people in my life. They are boring, materialistic, emotionally underdeveloped, supremely uninteresting. Thus I frequently retreat. But after a while of evading interaction, I find that the insidious hunger for social activity and the company of...
  10. Am I really a five?

    What's my Enneagram type?
    I'm an ENTP that keeps testing as a five, 5w4. When I read the descriptions of fives, they remind me of myself heavily, but the strong marks of introversion and extreme withdrawal have always thrown me off. I can be very expressive, communicative and am comfortable taking the role of the leader...
  11. [ESTP] Extraverted Sensing confusion

    ESTP Forum - The Doers
    Hi guys, Would someone be able to give me a good explanation of extraverted sensing? Perhaps by giving me a scenario and how an Se-dominant would react to an Ne-dominant for instance. I've read up on some explanations but I find it difficult to relate to because I believe that if I do...
  12. extraversion vs introversion

    Blog
    I'm relatively new to mbti and I tested originally as an enfp but i've been confused for a while about NI versus NE, specifically the idea of getting energy from others or from being alone. I feel like that changes for me frequently, where sometimes being in company exhausts me and I desperately...

  16. Solitary ENTP? Is it Possible?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Hello! Number one, I should state that I was originally mistyped as an INTJ and then again (so I believe) as an INTP. I read a thread that led to the discussion of extraversion vs. introversion and found it intriguing. The general conversation turned that such a thing exists as a mental...
  17. [INFJ] How much is too much? (extraversion in an SO)

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hello fellow tribe members :). I recently posed a question over in the ENTP forum about how extroverted they view themselves, which can be found here: http://personalitycafe.com/entp-forum-visionaries/104167-how-extraverted-you-guys-really.html Seems many INFJs I've found find the idea of...
  18. [ENTP] How extraverted are you guys, really?

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I have been reading a lot of complaints from INFJs lately (more like worries I suppose) that the ENTP type seems too extraverted to be considered an appealing type for a romantic relationship. I'm not really concerned with whether it is a legitimate viewpoint or not since I think the answer has...
  19. [INTP] Shifting from Extraversion to Introversion

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hey, so I'm an ENTP, and I've been a sociable and outgoing person my whole life, while still being relatively introverted for an extravert. Over the last few years, however, I have been spending a lot more time in my head (smoking pot), and I feel like I have become a genuine introvert. My mom...
  20. ENFP, but more ESFP traits and habits?

    What's my personality type?
    I'm definitely an ENFP and not an ESFP for the sole reason that my intuition is my strongest trait of the four. But my most defining quality is not my ability to inspire others - on the contrary, nothing makes me happier than performing, being in the limelight, and being a happy friend towards...
