    This is a good point. I mean being extraverted means that you "feed off" being around people. If you have to condition yourself to do that then itll never probably be the same as if you were a true extravert. Do you not enjoy being around people? Or are you just not sure how to relate to them?

    I guess if you feed off other people the majority of the time. I think I notice that I can feed off other people at times. I think it's Te that feeds off the people, though. When I have other people around me working with me, Te keeps getting pumped up and I go further and further into a structure and organization mode toward my surroundings. When I'm alone, the Te is more focused on personal things. It's that Te is capable of a lot more around other people just by being around those people compared to being alone. However, I won't last as long around those people as an ESTJ. I'll run out of patience quicker than the ESTJ.

    Like being around other people. Strangely, that's a lot harder than it sounds on the surface. Remember, they're not just an audience for how awesome you are.

    Take a shot of everclear. If you can still talk, I'm sure you'll be a little more social.
