    Selectively mute people (do not have to be extreme introverts) could pertain to this kind of selfishness.
    Hmm, gladly, I doubt I've met one of those irl. Although I did work with autistic children.. so, could be. But I also don't think I know any equally extreme extroverts.

    Extraverts are self-centered in that they demand attention.
    imho, there's truth in this. In fact, just bumped against this dynamic last night. Introvert me had to put my extravert game face on yesterday for a work-related, all-day promo event. When I got home, all I wanted to do was be left alone to detox. But my extravert SO wanted attention. Neither of us really wanted to sacrifice for the other, and although we reached something of a compromise, the evening did not end on a pleasant note.

    Compromise pretty much means that both parties are pissed off.

    It is better to share the anger than to tip the scales.
    Reyson: ...If you were to change your ways, I'm sure we could rebuild the relationship the two of us once shared.

    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.

    introversion is not relating things to yourself in regards to how they will benefit you

    Introverts are often less narcissistic. This probably has to do with receiving and wanting less praise. Tell my if my spelling is wrong. This is because introverts thrive less on others and do not need to be told that they're super sexy / cool every 5 minutes. Introverts (especially strong ones like me) get suspicious when they receive a lot of praise. We have pretty much learned to fend for ourselves, so in a way, we need less affirmation from the outside world. Resulting in less need to be asthetically pleasing, and thus less narcissistic.

    You're as un-narcissistic as Miss Piggy.

    Seriously, back up your points. None of your posts have their points backed up.
