    I'm a shy E. I have the opposite problem. But I thrive on socializing.

    I had someone call me a "people person" once. I was never more offended.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    I had that happen to me at a recent conference. I'm quite capable of being chatty and friendly, even with strangers. I'm not sure if I'm a mistyped introvert (although I'm having trouble seeing myself as an ENTP, or any other extraverted type for that matter) or whether I'm an unusually sociable introvert (with so/sx Enneagram instincts).

    Nope. A textbook introvert (shy) can't get mistaken for an extrovert, but sometimes I find myself wondering. I do like interacting with people at times, I'm never afraid to speak my mind when I've something to say. Seems like there's actually little that separates between I/E especially if you're balanced. When and how to draw the line?

    yeah I find the opposite intriguing too- it's like you are energized by being around people but you yourself are less likely to expend it on others.....interesting.........

    Good point. You can't draw the line. That's what I like about MBTI- it's a generality, and you cannot look at it in a rigid form. We all have differing strenghts in our prefences, and they combine to form a unique person.

    I think I can come off as an extrovert around others. I'm friendly enough and I worked in retail for two years during high school (And I hated it; People are nuts). I think that I live more in my head than the real world and that's how I make it through the day. I turn everyone else off. Ha.

    My acquaintances all think I'm an introvert, and my friends think the opposite. That would be because I'm more comfortable with my friends, so much I'm actually considered to be the loudest in the bunch. I actually had myself pegged as an ENFP for a long time.
    Isn't life under the sun just a crazy, crazy, crazy dream? Isn't life just a mirage of the world before the world? Why am I here and not over there? When did time begin? Where does space end? Where do you and I begin?
