It is horrible. Extraverts typically talk a lot more than introverts and listen less. Therefore, it sucks because it's like everyone is battling to talk.

Extroversion and introversion really have nothing to do with how much to talk or socialize. In certain situations, an introvert could talk as much as you think an extrovert would...
Dude, people keep telling you this lol

Yes, it does. However, you can still be an introvert and be untalkative. Obviously talking and socializing IS interacting with your external environments. I bet if you were to ask most people that tested as extroverts do they talk more than listen, they would say talk. However, I do believe that ENTP's are the least extroverted and most reserved of all the extroverts though. I used to have this argument with my ENTP friend who posts under the name of freebird on here as well.

Nothing like a group of extraverts to make me feel slow and retarded. Haha.

From my vantage point it seems as if the conversation is just bouncing from person to person. The train of thought is very connected and just trucks forward at breakneck speeds. By the time I've decided on what to say, we've skipped on three topics already. It can seem like a struggle to find a good patch of silence to wedge a thought in.

I'm not complaining though, and I don't think it's horrible. I just politely sit out and observe the conversation.

It seems like extraverts use brainstorming style communication more readily than introverts. Like thoughts are sent out and are up for grabs to whoever wants to take it somewhere else. When I'm with introverts, the scope of that is much smaller. Introverts are more likely to talk specifically and with a full thought in mind. Introvert groups are more likely, in my experience, to break down into smaller groups to converse.

Different strokes, and all that.

Well if you test as an extrovert, that's because you're an extrovert by the standards of the MBTI test. Someone could test as an ENFJ and really be an INFJ.
I guess Psilo would know a lot more, and he seems to cut it down to different styles of socializing rather than socializing more. I would also think it would have something to do with the actual types of the people...

Well, you're an ENTP, like I said. It makes sense that you are the way you are.

Maybe if some talkative extroverts could listen to STFU and ceased to just like hearing themselves talk, it'd be easier. You know what I'm saying nate? :angry:This is one of the times when ENTJs much like myself, rise up then start expressing our own opinions and getting some words in. When people start battling for control over the conversation you've just gotta get up, stand up, stand up for your rights! Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight! You've got just as much of a right to speak as the other guy/gal does. And if that doesn't work, take some advice or do the things that joe pesci would do. If you've been reading into the pattern of my bolded words, you can already tell whom I quoted the aforementioned words above this from nate, lol.



"Maybe if someone were to grow some fucking balls out here, things would be a lot easier!"
Or assert one's own authority-"Hey I'm the one who counts out here, ME! Not your fucking casinos or your fucking country clubs!"

ENFPs are also supposed to be 'introverted extroverts' BTW :mellow:
It really has nothing to do with how much you socialize or talk. I just think that extroverts would be able to speak about a wider variety of topics, most likely.

For instance, my mom's an INFJ, and she talks a lot. So does my dad who's an ISTJ.

I'm usually very quiet around a lot of extroverts, but it is entertaining to listen. And when I actually have the guts to join in, they actually always listen to me.

Oh, I wouldn't call it a battle, per se. Think of it as... as a dance! A fandango! Yeah, that's it. :proud:
