Oh really? Tell me something new. MBTI is seen as bullshit. Jungian Typology is seen as bullshit by most modern psychologists. Your fringe theory about Jungian Typology and Extroversion/Introversion is certainly not above this "bullshit" status, but you forgot to mention it.There is actually published research on the MBTI type dynamics and how they're bullshit, mostly done by Reynierse. That's as far as any formal research has gone to debunk MBTI at the theoretical base afaik, because the field is really not that popular. I don't care if it's a "fringe theory", popularity doesn't make something right lol, else we'd still be burning witches or something.
I never said something being popular makes something right (now you're the one strawmanning). I said a theory having support by people who have expertise in a given field makes it more credible and reliable, which is true. Your theory hasn't. Contemporary theories about the extrovert-introvert continuum have.
I'm not a psychologist, but just by reading this I can say you know nothing about the subject you are talking about. The modern concept of Extroversion/Introversion is much more nuanced than "socializing" and involves many different aspects of a person's traits and behavior, though yeah, broadly speaking extroverts tend to be more energetic and social and introverts tend to be less social and energetic. Show me a respected introversion-extroversion measurement scale that doesn't account the factor of socialization.Socialization is a pretty important aspect of introversion as well, introvert social focus can be more on building a support system around them and act the way you did at post #49 or even this one, many times. Just because someone has a focus on the object doesn't mean it will be fulfilled by socializing, which is true for many Ns. And vice versa, introverts may be withdrawn from many aspects of the world yet be quite social, by having an environment that doesn't challenge them, usually. Because we're a social species.
And speaking of socialization there's actually research that shows it's a very unreliable measure for most people since the behaviors differ very slightly for most.
You want to know facts that are actually supported by current scientific knowledge and evidence? Introverts tend to do better in academic environments and introversion is more positively associated with intelligence than extroversion. You can just Google it and find plenty of sources confirming my statements.
BTW it is so funny that you accuse me of being narrow-minded or "not challenging myself enough". So ironic. You quickly dismissed both Socionics and Enneagram as bullshit. I have been open to both theories, even though they seemed like BS to me in the beginning, and now I'm glad I gave them a chance. Stop judging people and putting others in boxes just because they don't want to buy your fringe theory. It is absurd.
