Hello person with the awesome coat :happy: Welcome.

How did you get started on MBTI?
We had do take a Myers Briggs test in college for one of my classes, but my professor seemed to imply that extroverts were healthy and normal, but introverts were messed up and needed counseling. I did a little research about the test, and found out that she is an idiot. I stumbled onto this forum when one of my friends told me she had to take the test for her job, and her results, along with those of everyone else that works there, are stored in her company's intraweb. Curious, I retook the test, and Google led me to you wonderful people...

Now that view is messed up. Though perhaps she was referring to extreme introverts? The ones who don't venture into daylight? (If they exist). The professor was probably an extrovert then.

That's interesting how your friend's workplace stores those results. I definitely think that knowing someone's personality type can help you to work better with them.

I stumbled across MBTI about a month ago after a friend got me to take the test.

Messed up?!! Oh ... BS on that. Maybe SHE was the messed up one due to her narrow-minded viewpoint. Just because there are more of them than there are of us doesn't mean that sort of mob mentality is right.

I really dislike when people have that attitude towards introverts. I am reading a book on Jung and he hints towards extroverted being a vulnerability. Here is the quote from the book. "Jung terms Extraversion the trend of the libido recognized by Freud, which is characterized by an openness-one might even say a vulnerability-of the subject to the object: thinking, feeling, and acting in relation, willy-nilly, to the claims or appeal of the object. Introversion, on the other hand, is the trend recognized by Alder, which is characterized by a concentration of interest in the subject: thinking, feeling and acting in relation primarily to the interests- concerns, aims, feelings, and thought process- of oneself".

Anyways, welcome to the forums :p
