    This is true, although perhaps not in the spirit in which it was delivered.


    Nocapszy is one of my favorite pens.

    He's armed with far greater mettle at his young age than I've as his elder.

    I think that having approximately 160 earth populations of "fans" would trounce the one *real* friend. Chances are you will be able to get a few hundred *real* friends out of that pool of one trillion; wouldn't you agree?

    I am most definitely an ENFP, lol. I believe that we are considered to be the most introverted of extroverted types, and that would certainly be applicable to me.

    I've stuck out as being "a very extroverted girl" my entire life. But that is just a reflection of my high energy levels and my tendency to participate in groups and engage people, and ideas.

    But since around puberty I've been steadily spending more time engaging myself and my ideas more than I have been with other people.

    I *enjoy* my own company and often prefer spending *quality* time with myself to spending *mediocre* time with someone else.

    But can you handle your own energy all by yourself?

    It's a law of nature that only sucks if you approach it personally.

    You do not have to approach it personally for it to suck.

    Popularity can be distracting to a highly efficient society that I dream of focused less on socializing and more on acheivement and intelligence. Therefore, society still sucks impersonally. It gives up the potential it carries. I love potential, hate stagnance.

    If you wish to control with external force rather than internal flexibility, it will suck too, yes.

    Please keep your Te to yourself. I don't fancy being in a Te utopia anymore than a Fe one. I am with Jung in believing that group, external efforts will just drag everyone down to the lowest common, collective demoniator in that group. A billion zeros still add up to zero.

    Thank you.

    I was just pointing out another variable.
    It's like propaganda. Ignore the exaggeration, take the underlying point presented.

    Understood.
    But given a choice, would you be around other people 24/7 for the rest of your life, or would you be in complete solitude (the last person on earth) for the rest of your life?

    I would choose the latter without hesitation. But I think most E's would choose the former.
