    Mostly I like to fly under the radar but I will make noise if it helps a specific cause of mine. Being at the center of attention is not something I 'suffer' often but when it happens it makes me feel buzzed and slightly self-conscious.

    One time ago we had the discussion about introversion in the sense of being an introvert according to mbti and being a social introvert. It happens often that for example entps didnt know if they are entp or intp, because they too thought of themselves to be social introverted. You can for example pick a random entp and lock him in a basement with a computer for 3 years. Most entps will not complain about that, because they can get the amount of social interaction needed for them on the computer. Would you lock him away with a book that gets boring after 3 pages, you'ld have more problems. The thing now is, if you get him out of the cellar, he'll be fundamentally introverted in social interaction, just because he's lacking the practice. And this lack of practice I think can play a role in this. I have never had a lack of social interaction practice in all my life, but this newly found form of communication in a business world is totaly strange to me and I think of myself that I lack a lot of practice and competence. I wasnt born with a natural killer instinct that told me do whatever you want you'll do it right. On the contrary I am sceptic whenever I can be and I am the most sceptic when it comes to assessing my abilities.

    What again is a strong indicator for me for extroversion, namely insecurity when it comes to assessing your own qualities, realistically that is. Most of the times I tend to see myself as a more worse person than I am.

    Regarding type theory, I think maybe the informative character trait in the primary function of an extrovert plays a pivotal role in this. If you have an information gathering function as primary, you are automatically more apt to listen and to watch a situation and less likely to just rush in and take control of everything. It's often those situation where someone explains something to a group and I listen very carefully and full of intrest and then he asks if someone wanna try himself and then asks me for example. I am never the one who rushes in and wants to try out, especially not in front of an audience. If I am not a slight bit familiar with a thing just yet, I am quite hesistant to use it in that regards.

    I dunno it's difficult, there's sure more to it. But I think just wanting to be unseen from times isnt something that automatically turns you into an introvert. And I wouldnt want to to try to explain everything in the world in that regards with type theory. I think that way you will overlook some answers
    i agree it depends on the type, and some extroverts come off introverted and vice versa. i suppose it just didn't fit in with the stereotypical ESTP.

    I can't even describe how the idea of being invisible and unnoticed horrifies me. Just the thought of people treating me as if I didn't exist bothers me greatly.
    I want to entertain people and make them laugh or cry or respond in some way. It's this need to make an impact on somebody, I guess.
    that sounds like a definite performer ESFP.

    I'm fairly horrible at being the stereotypical ESTP... I hate crowds and noise, find football to be dreadfully boring, don't socialize much outside of the necissary socialization of work (or the internet- I see enough people during the day thank you!) and hate to be in front of a group of people who are looking at me... I also suck at speaking loudly

    and yes, I score second on 9 in the enneagram

    and entropie... you are basically my forum twin

    So you're totally sure that you're not ENTP then?

    Is it just a work thing for you? I have a habit of laying low at work and avoiding recognition. Which totally failed when my boss nominated me for an award....and I won.... When I was more outgoing I still hated recognition at work and being in the spotlight, but I didn't mind it among my friends and family.

    Hate the spot light in almost any situation. I think it's a left-over from childhood. My mother and aunt were always trying to push me forward...I hated it. I got noticed anyway because I look unusual...I just wanted to hide.

    My thing is being ignored in a one on one setting...especially if I'm expounding on an idea or theory.

    Yeah, Whatever--you're sure you're not an NT?
    You can be the world's most sensuous NT...or something like that.

    quite sure that I'm a Sensor, though a borderline one... I'm an ESTP by function, not by stereotype It's my awareness of the present and what needs to be fixed that drives me to fix things and situations instead of awareness of the future or anything of the sort by any means... if I looked to the future I'd probably be doing things differently- or even if I cared to big picture the situation- I really want to fix what's wrong NOW!

    and when not at work I'm usually rather laid back... I talk plenty, I just don't talk loudly or seek out attention. I have better things to do
