    That makes me curious, as to why I's and E's would seek out other people. I wouldn't seek out other people until I hit a mental roadblock or created a finished product. If I reached a point where I couldn't continue my thought process further, I would seek out others for input. If I had processed something internally enough to think I had a finished idea, I would seek others to find out if there were flaws in my logic.

I dont judge, I dont pick a side because I dont have to. I am open to everything until the situation arises and then I learn how I really feel. I dont act like I know or understand how I will feel. So my 1 set of mind encompasses so many different views that it really is not my own, but a compilation of everyone else. Isnt that really who we all are, we just go about in different ways to find out how I feel as an individual which you can never really know until it happens. The kicker is 5 minutes later you may feel different

    That's funny, I'm an I and I always seek confirmation. I feel like I haven't quite reached that certainty with myself yet where I can trust my judgement alone. When I have to make a decision, I need the help and imput of people I trust. This is probably more a combination of my P and and a lack of self confidence than my being I or E.

    It's just dependent upon which function you're using.

    Es seek external validation for their dominant functions because the dominant function is extroverted.

    Is seek external validation for their secondary extroverted function; you just don't see it as often.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
