My first thought was attachment types, but hell if I actually know.
The habitual focus of 4-5s directs them into their 'inner world', vivid imaginations, and contemplations. To feel at ease, 4-5s often require quiet time where they can concentrate and doing so can result greater isolation, whereas 2-7s tend to be the extraverted type that focuses on the 'outer world' that ultimately attracts them towards people and less metaphysical issues.Quang,
What makes you say 4-5s? Judging from my reading that it is extroverts who are most prone to loneliness, I would not have guessed 4-5. However, being an introverted 4w5 myself, I only gather this knowledge of extroverts being lonely from an outsider's perspective.
(If any extroverts want to chime in here with their personal experiences, that'd be great).
Granted, I can be prone to loneliness, but I think my willful self-seclusion might make me appear more lonely than I actually am.
Why did you choose to isolate yourself?I am an ENTP, and quite a piece of extrovert. But at the moment, I spend my time alone or with very few persons.
I isolated myself a lot the past 12-16 months and I am slowly allowing myself to see other ppl.
But I am over-excited now when I am in social surroundings...
So since, I decided myself to be alone, it comes quite easily to accept loneliness, since it s your choice.
This is what trips me up. I know as a 4w5 I often choose to isolate myself, and after a while I may grow lonely and then just not want to see anyone because I feel "bad", perpetuating the isolation cycle. BUT it was my choice, after all. I think loneliness not by choice must feel much more lonely because it has an element of helplessness to it, which why I think that extroverts must be more prone to loneliness, because when they are alone I would generally assume it is not by choice.The habitual focus of 4-5s directs them into their 'inner world', vivid imaginations, and contemplations.

A SO-45x, however, would be something along the lines of an historian, archaeologist, critic, writer, librarian, humanitarian, or philosopher (eccentric people in public settings)
This is an interesting concept. Kind of how 4s are most prone to depression but also the most equipped to deal with it, as they embrace their negative feelings. I wonder if being prone to loneliness really makes you more equipped to deal with loneliness.They take any loneliness that a human feels and accentuate it as though it is a virtue. They are also the most prone to fall victim to the idea of love as the most important thing imo
Had to get my shit together ;D Underwent a complete reorientation of my career. I didn't find anything interesting to do with my degree, and had to find something to do, learnt programming and created my ecommerce website.Why did you choose to isolate yourself?
