    The Popular Guy says "While youíre living in fantasy land, Iím milking the real world for everything it offers: popularity, admiration, endless friends, sex, and success. But you donít want that anyway, right? Lie to yourself."

    Well, you're either lying to yourself or you're not. I don't see what the big deal is. You're all getting defensive. It's funny. You're making it look like he's right. (Part of the brilliance.)

    The book is probably easily worth $30 if that's the kind of information you want. And I'm sure the guy has a lot of unique points that you won't find anywhere else. Sometimes bold language, straight talk, and facts are necessary for making an impact. It's his job to really make you think, but the thoughts you leave with are yours and yours alone. You're not going to believe anything you don't agree with. He gives you information that forces you to take a stance - essential for progress. Even if you'd never do anything with the knowledge directly, it would still be fun to read, and I certainly have respect for anyone who is trying to better themselves. You have to start somewhere, whether it's buying a book and realizing you make bad decisions or buying a book and actually examining everything it says to see what out of it you can utilize to improve your life. It's as simple as that.

    Keep in mind that none of you have actually read the book.
    Finally, someone looks at a post like this in the right way. I love how people make threads like this, and then people attack the person or get offended. I admit, I started processing what he said, but I left it in my head and then changed my thoughts. I have no use in belittling him in the thread.

    I agree that's a possible ENTJ, though. The thing, I wouldn't get offended at a site like this. Instead, I'd want to pick it apart. Introversion and Extroversion are physiological. No matter how you train your mind, you're not going to change how your body reacts. You just have to make better use of the time when you do have energy.

    I was actually taking a personality test a few days ago, and it asked, "Are you introverted or fun?"

    Pairing subjectively positive/negative impressions of trait to an absolute scale seems too silly to honestly comment on.

    His purpose is to sell a book. To hedge his bets, he adorns his introductory page with an inflammatory call-to-action to encourage people to buy his work either to: prove him wrong; showcase different ways people can "improve" their social skills while lining his billfold.

    It's a snow job, guys.

    I'm an introvert that wears a lot of black. I'm not emo, though, I swear!
