    Okay, I haven't read all the pages because this topic is so long, but I have a couple of things to say.

    One is that I think 'loser' is one of the stupidest insults ever, and is often issued by people who are very ignorant and have serious issues of their own. I mean, I've just read that many stories about incredibly rich and famous people who hit rock bottom, or who were poorer than poor, or who lost everything, but they didn't just sit around and go 'oh I'm a loser!' They recognised their own strengths and put them to work, they took risks that they might not have otherwise have taken, they recognised that life is full of opportunites, etc.

    And another thing, whatever happened to valuing people for their differences? Gardner's multiple intelligences has been around for a while now, but I swear it doesn't get talked about enough or used enough and most people just seem to pay lip service to it.

    Also, in my opinion, there are different types of extroverts. There are the ones that are truly great at socialising because they make people feel comfortable and then there are ones that think they are great at socialising but they're actually crap at it because they make people feel uncomfortable with their mean spirited nature.

    Also, while I admit that I've seen this before and was extremely intrigued by the idea of being able to 'turn on and off extroversion' for curiosities sake, I love being an intro and wouldn't want to change.

    This article is obviously written by an introvert, well versed in satire - the actual joke is on extroverts.

    Don't you all see?
    INTJ | 5w4 - Sp/Sx/So | 5-4-(9/1) | RLoEI | Melancholic-Choleric | Johari & Nohari

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    Wrong.

    ENTJ is the most successful type.
    INTJ is the second.
    ESTJ is the third.

    Go on. All the chips are in the place.
    It does not matter though. Success undermines itself.

    Success is only an admission of many failures combined. The most successful are simply progressive failures. :workout:

    I don't think the author actually believes in the title. Most probably is a ruse to get the attention of people (mostly introverts) and sell the book. Publicity stunt.

    Everyone sucks if they can't find a balance.
