I dont think I have the hots for extroverts, for the very reason that they annoy me. I prefer more like minded and similar personalities.

Zooey Deschanel ftw! So adorable no matter what she does.

Plus I am always more attracted to adorable and cute than I am to 'hot'. but zooey is still hot

My granny is extroverted, grandfather introverted and my mother is logical/pratical while, my father is impulsive/air-headed.

I idolize my grand-father the most and I pick up after my granny the most.
I don't like compromising my feelings, and rather break up if its not going anywhere.
Just like my granny.

Opposites do attract, but there has to be common judgements, thoughts and feelings about important issues in order for the relationship to be successful!

Other than love and trust of course.

I don't think I have ever been in a romantic relationship with an Extrovert, although I came very close once.

My relationships were, as far as I can tell, with the following types:

1.INFP, preferred being alone in natural settings, but also liked being alone indoors, withdrew when upset

2.INTP, reclusive to the point of putting foil on his windows to block out the outside world, rarely left his room, had no friends

3.ISFP, disliked being out in public, made up entertaining stories to preserve his privacy when asked personal questions

4.INTP, moved to a secluded location, didn't answer the door, sent me out for groceries and other necessities, hid in a locked room, refused to own a phone

5.INTP, somewhat active social life, mostly with other introverted computer geeks

6.INFJ, withdrew when socially overwhelmed, broke off contact with friends for months at a time, considered me too clingy/needy when I expected occasional affirmation



So, I suppose I have a pattern of choosing very extreme introverts. I think I naturally prefer them.

I'm only annoyed when they don't want to do anything or they can't stay overnight or that kind of thing. And for this I mean those who are introverted that I know, not introverts. themselves.

I envy/am annoyed by Extroverts, but not usually attracted to them.
Now an extrovert wannabe? An introvert who is trying with all their might to be a social and leave behind all fears about perception? My favorite type of person... Because they inspire me to be the same. And honestly, what good is there in being attracted to a person who won't inspire you to be better than you are today?

Read up on Jung's writings on the Anima in men and the Animus in women. When we fall in love we are not seeing the person, we are seeing our Anima/Animus projection. Which is why a couple can get married and then several years down the line the projection wears off and we wonder why they don't seem like the person we fell in love with, the answer is that they never were, it was the projection we fell in love with.

kinda depends on the extrovert, some seme liek fun some seem annoying, mi not very good at typing people but i'd guess the ones who seemed like fun had more nfp than the ones who seemed annoying (so an enfp wold probably seme the most fun as they share the most letters with me and an estj would probably drive me nuts) if i was any good at typing people i might be able to confirm this, but most of the poeple i know i dont know anything like well enoguh to pin down to a type

Okay, I laughed.

Anyways, I prefer Introverts.
I suspect about half of the people who prefer the opposite Introvert/Extrovert are looking for qualities they wished they had.

I am jealous of ENTJ's and honestly, I would need one to help me get anything done. Their constant OCD mannerisms requiring me to keep everything perfect may be bothersome, but at least they have both the ability to be social, and the drive which I lack. I have no idea how I could give back, but they would be the most helpful for me.

My relationship experience is limited, so I can't go around saying I prefer one or the other. Just estimate on what seems like it would be fun to try.

I don't think I have a noticeable preference for one over the other. I typically enjoy being around both; extroverts offer something that introverts don't and vice versa. I might prefer being around one over the other in a particular instance or situation, but otherwise I find myself able to easily adjust to interacting with either.

As for romantic relationships...I can only predict. I have limited experience with that. :tongue:
