    All alone forevermore? That sounds like hell!

    I would choose the latter without hesitation. But I think most E's would choose the former.
    Are you beyond any form of redemption?

    So, is that one ENTP for choice #1?
    I wouldn't like it either (I think), but I would still choose it over being around others constantly. I cherish solitude, as I need silence and little distraction when I want to do some really deep thinking, which I enjoy. Solitude would preserve my sanity, while it would probably corrupt an E's sanity, and constant social contact would have the opposite effects respectively.

    If that's what you call introversion, I have it pretty bad.

    Richard Matheson begs to differ.

    I never said that the choices were good choices. They are extremes, and undesirable to most all of humanity. But if you had to choose an extreme, which would it be?

    It *is* a cruel choice DoY... it's like choosing hell or hell really- I love being around people but I may go insane if I were around them 24/7. I've been in relationships like that before and ended up with a strong desire to kill the other person

    Does extroversion = popularity here though?

    I'd rather say Popularity = Healthy behavior (whether intro or extra-verted)...

    I can't possibly choose between those but it did make me think about it. Given a broader choice, I would say semi-alone, with perhaps a couple of introverts and an extrovert... ideally an ENTP.

    Dante's first circle or his last? I would pick the last as long as my brain still worked.

    What is popularity? What exactly is it good for? Why exactly do people care about it so much?

    These are questions we are trying to answer.

    Naesala: Oh no, that I could never do. You see, humans are essential to the fulfillment of my ambitions.

    Reyson: You've changed, Naesala. If this is the path you've chosen, I've nothing left to say.

    I thought the question we were trying to answer was, "What makes a poster popular?"
