    It gets tossed around quite a bit, so what is it exactly?

    Mmm I love being around people. It doesn't mean I have to be the center of attention, I just like being with people. Interacting.

    To be extroverted is to be defined by external influences, to gather energy from being around others.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    i'm in an odd mood so this may sound weird but for me it has something to do with the saying if a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it or sees it did it really happen?
    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.

    So you're saying I do not exist because I'm sitting in my school library and nobody around me? Oh noes...

    But on topic, I used to consider extroversion as someone with an insecurity of self. Needing others to supply you with energy or happiness was something I considered a weakness while younger. Now, I just see it as where one chooses to expend their energy.

    If your dominant process is extraverted, you are an extravert.

    At least, that is the definition I subscribe to.

    It's easier to tell in some people than others.

    Sometimes it's easy to tell a Ne dom (always on about patterns they observe), for example... but with many of us, it's not very easy at all!

    Extraversion versus introversion is a pretty unimportant thing. When it comes down to it, it's only about function order, and one mutation's worth at that. Doesn't really say much.
