    yes, that's what I said, right? I was trying to emphasize that introverts will have the same issue, only to a lesser extent.

    [edit]: I did kind of put it in a confusing way though , I'm not quite thinking clearly atm I think

    It's hard to see that you've got 'energy', but if you were to describe 'energy' as if you saw it in someone else, I think you'd realize what it is somewhat. It could probably be interpreted as excitable, talkative, enthusiastic, loud, crazy... energetic . An indication of drained energy would be something like refusing to come to a party/go out somewhere directly after a day of work. Although that might be a bit more connected to the Perceptive trait.
    Yeah, I do get the concept of energy, but I'd like a less subjective definition of what it means to a person. Because an energized introvert might refuse to go to the party even though he feel energized.

    That's why I used the word "happy" - feeling pleasure or contentment.

    shy is very different from introverted.

    How can you NOT get energy from the outside world? something has to feed ideas to your innerworld to chew on...

    I'd like an empirical way to define energy too, but I doubt one exists. Does the MBTI literature actually clear up any of the haziness of the MBTI theory by any chance?

    I think energy = stimulation, in this sense.

    Some people need to be in a familiar, quiet place where they will not be distracted by their environment in order to be productive. Others would fall asleep in the same environment.

    Some people need to have music or action all around them or they can't focus. Others would be irritated or drained.

    The key difference between Extraversion and Introversion is not whether someone talks a lot or not, but whether they get energy from the OUTER WORLD or their own INNER WORLD.

    The next important point is that what people DO with that energy varies.

    Extraverts get energy from the outside world.
    Sometimes Extraverts pour that energy into more talking and socializing, and
    sometimes they pour it into a solitary activity.

    Introverts get energy from their own inner world.
    Sometimes they pour that energy into more solitary activities, and sometimes they pour that energy into talking and socializing.


    In conclusion, you can not tell whether someone is an Extravert or an Introvert solely on the basis of how much they talk or socialize.

    It would be nice if it were that simple, but understanding personality type goes beyond looking at the surface of things.


    (By the way---

    The original title of this post was "E vs. I Made Simple"

    I changed the title because I decided it was innapropriate.

    My point was not to provide a way to determine whether someone is E or I.

    My point was that the amount of talking and socializing one does is not a reliable indication of E or I.
    )
    Well, you're half way there--the I/E stat actually just tells us which of the two primary functions you give more priority to. Since the outer world doesn't really see or interact with one's introverted functions, being dominant in an introverted function causes one to appear more socially withdrawn.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
