I recall that most literature about the types states that introverts prefer thinking in quiet, solitary environments. I was reflecting today and I realized that I think the best in an environment opposite of the above.
The barracks here are air conditioned, they're always dark, and always very quiet. Logic would tell you that an introvert would prefer this environment to reflect. I find that I'm always being distracted by little things, someone opening a door, watching a movie quietly, or walking down the hall. Also I generally lack inspiration when I ruminate around here. It's just very dull.
The dining facility, however, is always full of people, it's loud, brightly lit and there are about a dozen televisions all on different channels. Logic would tell you that an introvert would have a hard time here. I always sit near a television that stays on "Sports Center", and is always playing baseball or baseball highlights when I eat (I like baseball because it's interesting, but not too interesting... If you know what I mean). When I sit by myself all the background noise just becomes ambient, and I cease to be bothered by odd noises. I do my best thinking here, my mind just seems to be invigorated by the "energy". When I go eat with a good friend of mine (He's a very intelligent ISFP, which makes for great conversations and heated differences of opinion) we usually have our most interesting conversations there. I can sit there for an hour, drinking soda, or slowly munching on something, watching the baseball highlights while ruminating.
My question is; is this an indicator of extroversion?
