    Default Can Extraverts Be Reserved?

    If they have little desire to assert themselves onto their environment, little desire to influence people's decisions and actions, but have a strong desire to spend time with by other people and are easily energized by them?

    Yes, extroverts can definitely be reserved. When I am deep in thought or mentally asleep in boredom, I am reserved as hell.

    Also, I enjoy spectating/observing people a lot, as well as listening to other people's thoughts/experiences/opinions/stories, both of which require self reservation.

    1) Could be a low extrovert, closer to introversion, needing less external stimuli, i.e ENFP.
    2) Someone who has matured as an extrovert, and his or her own internal life/individuality has becoming enriched.
    3) Introverts, still need to meet people, interact, most humans need some form of discourse, even if it is not the same flavour as an extrovert.

    There are personally three reasons to get into said behavior:

    1) Fear (of making a bad impression, of doing something inappropriate in an unfamiliar social situation, etc )
    2) Repression: I know that if I am myself, I will get a shitload of negative attitudes tossed back at me for not being *proper*
    3) The subject being discussed isn't my cup of tea and the people getting passionate about it are more interesting to observe in order to understand them better. Usually, this happens to me when I'm with my friends. They discuss the weirdest things and although I'm relaxed enough to actively join in, it's more fun to see them in action.

    sure...i think that's why i had trouble at first knowing if i was infp or enfp...because i feel like i just adapt to the situation...i can be quiet and chill for sure...but i absolutely feed off the energy of other people.

    Didn't see that you made this thread around the same time as I made mine. The topics are slightly different, and these are some interesting responses here.

    yea, definately, when I orignally knew about this I thought I was an ISFP for a while. since i'm not running around going, "wheres the party at!!" (that is the first line in the ESFP description) and acting really dumb all the time or talking constantly, or needing constant stimulation. that would be ridiculous actually. However, I do not feel energized from being alone and in my own thoughts. I feel energized when I am around with people.

    You are what is called a healthy and balanced ESFP. My sister is too. One of my co-workers is definitely of the "needing constant stimulation" type and they are energy-suckers to even mild introverts like myself.

    Yes, thank-you for the compliment.. I think that "sucking the energy" out of people and annoying them is the opposite of what we're supposed to be about.. we're supposed to be entertaining and make people happy!!

    I'm fairly reserved most of the time.
