    Agreed, my socializing is often a reflection of my mood state.

    I wonder if other social introverts have the problem where you make friends, only to piss them off by dropping off the face of the earth or only wanting to hang out minus the ways they're accustomed to. (Parties, Bars, etc). Push-pull is an understatement.

    I'm a fan of this thread. For sure will be lurking(reading) ^.^

    Indeed. Many a time I've engaged socially only for people to get the impression I love doing it or do so frequently, only to find out that I'm hot/cold and when I'm in energy conservation mode I can stay so for quite some time. On my two days off it is quite common for me to not see or speak to a single human being. This is by choice.

    I generally don't keep in contact with people or go through the whole texting/rapport game unless I actually want to make plans. I'll just drop by after 3 months of absence like "let's go to the movies". I find social graces and "how's it going" text conversations tedious, for better or worse. Probably for worse.

    mostly I notice social introverts with a group, but hanging back analyzing and keeping track of everything that's going on.

When he is in a group of people he doesn't know he can be more reserved than me at times, unless he shares a common interest with them.
    I think ESPs are more classically extroverted in social situations than ETJs. ETJs are usually somewhat even-keel in idle, agenda-less conversation. Although their extroversion becomes glaringly obvious when they're in charge of a group or something needs to get done. I'd say it goes:

    EFJ
    ESP
    ETJ
    ENP

    Edit: Actually, I take that back. ETJ (ENTJ especially)>ESP at socializing/communicating.

    Speaking for myself, I'd would agree with this generalization. I'd call it just "regular" flaky though, in so much it's mostly E's that would perceive it as "extremely". Other introverts are likely to empathize with a need for at least some alone time.

    I think this has to do with who initiates mostly. I reciprocate often, it's that initial urge/need to reach out that I either don't feel or don't act on. Higher value people can get me to do just about anything with them.

    Much more the other way round for me. As a supreme social introvert I have few friends. Those I do have I usually want more depth from than they are prepared to give. All goes well for a while and then the depth versus breadth problem emerges.
    Cognitive functions:
    Fi (95%); Ti (90%); Ne (75%); Fe (60%); Ni (50%); Si (50%); Te (15%); Se (5%)

    "INFP values but INTP skills" describes me best of all

    I'm an introverted 6w5 So/sx, and my social instinct comes out strongly in my left-wing political thinking. I have a bit of a neurotic psychological complex about "unity", I hate it when my comrades engage in sectarian bitch-fests rather than forming a united front.

    Any So dom introverts out there? Surely I'm not the only one on these forums.
