    Most Extraverted Introvert = INFP
    Most Introverted Introvert = ISTJ
    Most Introverted Extravert = ENTJ
    Most Extraverted Extravert = ESFP


    I base this on my opinion that S's make the most extreme of both ends of the E/I spectrum whereas N's are more "in between", and also that F appears more extraverted than T.

    Woah. No way!
    (Particularly with the 'ENTJ' most introverted extrovert?! I pose this question to you ma'am - have you ever met an ENTJ?)

    I get where you're coming from, but I respectfully disagree.

    Sure, every individual is different and some people will be more or less comfortable using their creative (2nd) function. I guess the point I was making was that E/I in mbti is not exactly the same thing as introversion and extroversion in other fields of psychology (though it is related). So we can look at the other information elements e.g. N or F, and see if and how they have a measurable effect on how much the individual feels inclined to interact with others and the 'external' world.


    For me:

    Most extro Introvert: ISFP - Of those I've known they are very emotionally limber and can swing from joyful pseudo-extrovert to melancholy hermit

    Most intro Extrovert: ENTP - I think its hard to see in normal ENTP behaviour but when an idea takes hold can spend a remarkably amount of time alone thinking and imagining posibilites

    Most extro Extrovert: ESFP - Interaction is their concaine ; I've never had an ESFP say to me that they need some 'alone' time

    Most intro Introvert: INTP - Thought this one was pretty evident; you guys are social camels - once a week will hold you over Respect!

    The bolded statement contradicts your list. Also, I disagree. N = more introspective, more imaginary, more daydreaming.

    imo

    Yeah. I've met quite a bit of ENTPs, and there seems to be two kinds. First kind: the type that never shuts up, always spouting off whatever random idea their Ne came up. Second: the type that is capable of hermiting up for a while and getting some "work" (reading a book, playing a video game, research on whatever scientific topic took their fancy) done. Though they will tend to want to discuss it afterward. (Ignore the blatantly obvious counter remark of "difference of extremity in extroversion preference)

    You underestimate us. Try a few months. (How much does a forum count for, anyway?)

    Dear lord. They are some of the most aloof, 'head in the clouds' turned-inward people I know.
    They weren't in any particular order, but I'd go with ISFx and then INFJ if I was forced to put them in order. The INFJs I've known well (3) could easily be confused with extroverts.

    I'm sorry - but I cannot get on board with this. Every ENTP I've ever known has HATED time alone and been constant chatter-ers.
    I'm still going with ENFP here - 'needing the most time alone to ground themselves' (personalitypage site) and a tendency to withdraw when hurt or in order to centre their thoughts. Also, the whole 'holding themselves back whilst having an appearance of not doing so'. ENTP-experience says they love nothing more than sharing their logic with others and don't see the point in being secretive - they're generally less sensitive to criticism.
    Well, some ENTPs are more extroverted than others. They also need time to focus and fine tune their thoughts, which aren't value and people oriented like in the ENFP.

    I'll admit that I don't fully know about ENFP vs ENTP. The ENFPs I've known can have intensely introverted sides, I will give you that.

    I get you're angle, but I'm inclined to go with ESFP - ESFJ's tend to have a higher regard to social rules, and thus censor themselves.
    I don't consider self censoring to be an introverted vs extroverted trait, but could otherwise be easily convinced that ESFP is more extroverted.

Its most likely that these preferences play a big part in how the external, everyday world affects and defines us (in addition to the E/I attitude).

    So my question, is there a most extorverted introvert? Or introverted extrovert? And on the other extreme, the most introverted introvert? Or extroverted extrovert? I suppose there must be but just curious for other's opinions
    I don't get it, though. What does "feet on the ground" have to do with being extroverted? Just because my feet are on the ground doesn't mean I have any idea what the hell to say to the other people on the ground.

    Type generalisations? Sure, why not.

    Most extroverted introvert/extrovert = xSFP

    Most introverted introvert/extrovert = xNTP

    Agree with everything other than your reasoning for this one.

    ENFPs are 'ideas' people just as much as ENTPs - only they are more inclined to daydream fanciful possibilities rather than ideas rooted in logic (though we do both, just as ENTPs do) They need even more time alone to be able to centre their logic so it fits around their ideals.

    We both have the same primary function, steered by our intuition and are the same ENP type as children before showing a preference for 'T' or 'F'.
    An ENFP who has grown to understand the value of logic can appear very ENTP-like and vice versa with ENTPs and emotion.

    The thing I think sets ENFPs apart from ENTPs in regards to needing 'alone time', is that they are also, typically, more sensitive. Thus it is easier to offend an ENFP - causing them to withdraw into a cocoon.

    Yet to be convinced that ENTPs (on a general scale) are more inclined to time alone than ENFPs.
