    Popular media driven by character interactions? I don't really care about character interactions, I like the explosions, the battles, the gunfights, the sadistic torture sequences, and the grace and wonder of CGI that goes so beyond the mundaneness of people!

    Why would anyone be interested in character interactions? People are bland and simple. And nothing is more interesting than watching people get blown up, gunned down, or torn apart!

    True, true. I was thinking along the lines of prime-time TV.

    If introverts are underrepresented in the media it's not slanted by much. I can think of tons of introvert celebrities. Some of the more talented celebrities are actually introverts. Outside of the stage/screen context though an extravert is more likely to be an attention whore like Paris Hilton and the like.

    actually the divisions I remember are on average:
    E/I 50/50
    S/N 70/30
    T/F (male 60/40, female 40/60)
    J/P 50/50

    I could be wrong though

    Another thing is that Intuitives can seem more like Introverts -- the Intuitive's way of looking at the world often requires some alone time or at least zoning out.

    In line with what Athenian and guy-with-numbers-for-a-handle were saying, I think the main thing is that most television and film depicts people interacting with other people. Even when interacting, many introverts are quite capable of coming across as extraverts. Hence, while character X may, in fact, be an introvert, all we see is him interacting, so that his introversion would not be evident.

    I do have to say, though, I've always found the notion that introversion versus extraversion is a 50-50 split to be, well, suspect. I know it's not exactly scientific to use your personal experience as an indicator, but, er, given my personal experience, introverts are definitely the minority. Otherwise there must be a whole lot of self-deniers out there.

    Also, re: those statistics: only around 10 to 14% of people are EXTPs? I find that extremely difficult to believe.

    yeah, isn't there a disproportion of introverted actors? and they extravert by acting? i heard that somewhere.

    Perfect 100. No margin of error or anything? I trust the numbers from CAPT, at least they pretended to do research about it.

    Here's something else I found.

    EDIT: This document said that the number of introverts and intuitives are probably overrepresented. I think there are many introverts out there that do a good extrovert impression. I thought one of my IN coworkers was an EN until I asked her if she had ever heard of MBTI and told me her type.

    Many actors and performers may seem like extroverts because it's the nature of their job. I read lots of celebrity gossip which I shows what people do on their down time, which I think is more indicative of I/E.

    The way I figure out who's an extrovert/introvert is by watching who routinely manages to shake loose the shackle that is a keyboard and starts socializing with people. Introverts rarely make the rounds around the office from what I can tell. Extroverts get up to say silly things like my butt hurts or I just got a paper cut from a post-it note.

    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I'm just curious. Do you have a problem with the MBTI I/E divide (questions asked)? A particular test form? Do you have a problem with the sampling or methodolody?

    Why not believe the CAPT numbers over your own hunches, in other words?
