    I can overwhelm extraverts, but only really under the effects of lots of caffeine and sugar. It throws me way over the edge, causing me to lose all regard for the people around me.

    I was running around Wal-Mart the other day shopping with my ESFJ mother, picking things up, calculating in my head on the go, and just constantly moving. I just moved past everyone...very quickly. It wasn't really "social," per se. I was just quick and to the point in every conversation. If people dawdled, I just formulated a solution on the spot and moved on. No time for you to just stand there staring!

    definitely... personally speaking, ive spent most of my life observing rather than talking, i think that has allowed me to better understand patterns of human behavior, which can be advantageous.

    if i had to guess, i would say introverts are more likely to be overwhelmed by large groups of people, but excel and may even surpass the supposed natural social aptitude of extroverts in more intimate settings

    When introverts extrovert, they are social.

    When extroverts introvert, they are asocial.

    Also, extroversion is not exclusive to human interaction, but systems and objects, as well. For example, reading or watching television tends to be more attractive to introverts, because it's passively taking data in. Playing video games or sports, on the other hand, is a more extroverted activity, since it's interactive.

    Extroverts tend to be talkative, risk-taking, energetic, etc. Note how this isn't equivalent to social skills or even being social. (Many extroverts simply like to hear themselves talk.) It just means you direct your energy outward.

    Introverts tend to be better listeners and take things in. This is also important in socializing.

    I'd say that a social master is most likely the ambivert; a perfect balance of talking and listening.

    When I'm in a social environment where I feel comfortable, I doubt most people would type me as an introvert. I can come across very extraverted at times.

    It seems to me that introverts can be very social people - something that I think is often misunderstood. I don't think that introverts are necessarily quiet or shy, they just require their own personal time away from people.

    extroversion is a myth. Extroverts are probably not even aware of the extrovert introvert classification. It is probably just a word invented by introverts (people who don't talk alot and feel left out).


    There are people who like to divide people into categories, and there are those that don't.

    I dunno. I only start talking to people after I've exhausted all other options.

    Oh my god. Some extraverts are unaware of a lot of things. They can only live supposing everyone is like that.

    I mean, seriously, you can't mean this?
