This is to all the introverts,

I simply admire the way you people can stay quiet for hours and hours, sometimes without even murmuring a word. I've the ability to stay quiet for an hour (specially when I'm engrossed in doing some work) but not more than that. I've a bunch of idiots in my class room and I've to stay with them for 6 hours per day. I cannot stay quiet for such a long time, so eventually I'll have to socialize with them or else, I will feel uncomfortable. And unfortunately, I can find no one better. I so much hate this in me.
Your quietness fascinates me. It simply makes me feel envious and also I literally feel like mingling with you more than anyone else. I know, sometimes you guys might feel like talking but it's not an urge.You'll are so mysterious and mesmerizing. Damn!:tongue: (well, I'm ranting and it is sounding illogical, so please excuse me)

quiet on the outside never on the inside.. sometimes its more of a curse other times, a satisfying way to entertain ourselves with anything our subconscious can cook up.. ;)

I'd tell you not to envy us, but truth be told I've been known to envy you extraverts for having certain traits that I lack (seriously, you guys make conversations with strangers, and sometimes just conversation period, seem like such a breeze). Well, the grass always seems greener and all that...
:frustrating:

Just keep in mind that we may appear quiet on the outside, but what's going on in our interior space can be quite another matter. Our inside-ness is often very active and very "loud," and sometimes we wish we could just shut our interior monologue/dialogue off and be louder and more active in the social realm the way it comes so naturally to you.

In the end, it's really about balance between the two.

You just can't hear us, we're too darn quiet (plus I have an internal monologue which talks XD)
Very nice of you :) I like extroverts BECAUSE they talk alot!

It's the wanting to be what your not thing :) I'd love to be an extravert. I know it would come with downsides but as I have only experienced the downsides of being an introvert, my mind states it would be easier as an extravert (obviously not true).

Im beginning to suspect I am an introvert, and I agree with the above, its never quiet on the inside. My brain keeps going and going. I want it to shut up sometimes, but it wont.

I'm a little too good at being quiet, but that doesn't mean it isn't a total boredom trap. Yet even when I do try to start something it only gets to a bit of awkward small talk and that just isn't enough.

I still don't get wanting to become another type, or even any significant envy of one, but the one thing I may truly envy is being on one side or another in something like the OP..... either be bothered by quiet and able to simply follow an urge to bring about a significant change, or not be able to initiate but not be drained by the low activity in the first place :dry:

They're fascinating worlds.... both of them. Grass is green on both sides and I've got my head stuck in the fence :laughing:

Well, actually it's quite true. Both introverts and extroverts have advantages and disadvantages. And yes, I might seem to be like an introvert when I'm engrossed in thinking but that's not for a long time. I'm proud of my MBTI, I just wish if I had the power to stay quiet for 6 hours, then my class mates wouldn't have been the victims of my sarcasm. XD Anyways introverts, feel good. Cause you all are sexy in your own way.

I envy E and E envy I
I often envy E, because of their ability to adapt new groups like magnets, to have much fun with people: chats, maybe teamsports, parties, large groups of people etc. I would love to be more open, to enjoy large crowds like concerts... today, its harder to find silence then "noise"... but we all are okay by what we are :)

You don't know what is going on on the inside, we constantly come up with ideas, but never get the chance to act them out, either another idea takes its place, or we don't summon the courage to act it out.

Theoretically, we should be able tos ummon whatever feelings that we need to get what we want, since we are masters of our inner worlds, but we know these conjured emotions are fake and can't put any stock in them, in which we need to do in order for the conjured feelings to be of any use.

Does this apply to most ENFPs, you think?

I actually envy other introverts. My two friends(one slight extrovert and the other another introvert) envy extroverts more since it seems they do better in meeting and dating women.

Err, introvert doesn't mean quiet and extrovert doesn't mean can't stay quiet.

I'm most certainly an extrovert and I could happily go days without talking, so long as I have external stimulation.

Point being: You do not have to envy introverts for having a quality that you as an extrovert do not use as it is not reserved for introverts.

If your aim is to share your appreciation for introverts then bravo and carry on, if you're expressing a desire to be more like that yourself then find a way to be quiet, look into zen or relaxation or something like that, learn to focus on inner thoughts and observation of external things vs active participation in socialising.

Haha, but in the beginning it is hard you know. Especially when you're impatient and impulsive.And I'm ranting and praising, that's why I said that it's sounding illogical because both extroverts and introverts have advantages and disadvantages. Well, the grass is always greener on the other side as other members have mentioned here.

I'm happy with whatever I'm. I just praise the way they can stay quiet, I know, after trying even I can do. But the work which is so hard for me and need of lot of trials, it comes naturally to the introverts, this is why I find you all fascinating. Well you can say, that an extrovert is praising an introvert from her point of view.
