    Do you prefer to sit there and work stuff out in your head? Build intricate models?

    That sounds like you prefer the internal world to me... hence I.

    Extroverts are not these things.. that's how I work.. Never took the time to define properly what extroversion is.. hell THEY never take time over definitions so why the hell should I?
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I think extroversion is the tendency to seek gratification mostly from outside influences. While an introvert seeks most gratification from within their internal world.

    We had a nice long two weeks where everyone was on vacation. By the end of the vacation I was about to pull out my hair without realizing it was because we just hung around the house for two weeks. My INFJ husband was in heaven. Not that he doesn't like people but it was a nice break for him.

    I get charged with people.
    He gets charged alone.

    i don't know enough about the teachings of type to describe it in those terms...but...my thoughts swirl about and i like to bounce them off of people...they never feel complete until i do.....experiences in general feel flat unless i'm sharing them with someone...most of the time.
    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

    Yeah that makes sense to me. I've always thought of it as extroverts needing some sort of mirror or reflection in the outside world for them to fully take in their own thoughts. Like, to take it in, they need to get it out of themselves first.

    it's quite odd actually the experience of learning this about yourself...quite often i don't know how i feel about something until i've said it.

    Extraverts like being around more people.
    Introverts prefer being alone or with only 1 or 2 other people.

    I know I get the most focus, motivation, and achievement when I am alone. However, I may be in a happier mood when I'm with people. Still, I prefer being alone, I love me.

    Good example, it's basically this.

    I get charged being with people -- I light up. But I spend so much time doing things by myself, because I love that too.

    So, it's the best of both worlds. Being a person that enjoys solitary activity as well as interaction.

    Extroverts look like this: C
    Introverts look like this: O
    Any questions? I DIDN'T THINK SO.
