    In socionics:
    ILI (INTp) =
    Prime function (1st) - Introverted intuition (Ni)
    Creative function (2nd) - Extroverted logic (Te)

    By no means fool proof, but I think socionics has a much better break-down of functions. Our Creative function is the one we learn to use in late adolescence andd is the primary mode we use to express our Prime function. It is the main way in which we interact with society and others in general.

    Not that I've met him personally but I would guess Einstein was an INTp

    top to bottom is externally defined/internally defined

    sensation -- it's kind of obvious...

    judgement, be it E or I is still, ultimately concerned over closure, which, be they internally rigorous or not, are confirmed outside the self. that's why even despite their calculations happening in the mind only, it still beats intuition
    feeling -- I think a lot of Fs will get pissed but, F is more externally defined than T. some say that F draws motivation from inside but that's not really the case. F simply requires less motivation. shit -- most of the time it IS the motivation other processes rely on. it doesn't need to look inward as much.
    thinking-- already sort of explained

    intuition -- learn the etymology for further insight.

    again, the ATTITUDE matters more than the letters, so order counts less.

    that's why if we listed all the types, it would go in this perfect order.
    I'll make the list too.

    I agree!

    I'm not even 'proud' of the title 'most introverted extravert' but that title has been thrown about for ENFPs on the board for a while. I don't identify with it as much as I did in my late teens/early 20s but I do need a lot of time to process.

    ENTPs have Fe. ENFPs have Fi. Fi makes you kooky because you create and follow your own code and that means somtimes having to withdraw. Fe pulls you to the world and makes you wanna make things right and socially orderly and befriend people 'who need it' etc. Fe is what I think also confuses people when trying to figure out if someone is ENTP or ENFP.

    PS I agree with Costrin on this one. INTP is *not* an extraverted introvert. Oh jeez, no. Though yes, there are definitely really outgoing, even social INTPs.

    PPS I know lots of self-described introverts who are really sociable, friendly, go out a lot, like to dance, like gatherings, meet up new and random people, etc.

    Well, the E is already focused externally so the will to judge seems a more valid reason to socialize. On the other hand the IP seems less prone to internal conflict than the IJ, meaning it can tolerate others a little better.

    Then again I still haven't quite understood why it's SJ and SP and not SF and ST.

    Well the vast majority of the population is comprised of Ss, so Ns have a harder time to both relate and make themselves understood.

    You think any SPs are particularly introverted in other people's eyes? The ISTPs in my life come across extraverted half the time cause they of their fun loving, active side.

I have only a few close friends that I really see a lot. Yet people have seen me as someone very lively and talkative. Thats the part of me that likes life to be an adventure.
    Seriously, I can't make them stfu.

    I can't decide once and for all if I'm ENTP or INTP but I can tell you the ISTPs in my life appear more extraverted than me cause of their social nature.

    In my humble opinion...

    Most extroverted introvert= ISFP

    Most introverted extrovert= ENTP

    Most introverted introvert= INTP

    Most extroverted extrovert= ESFP

    Well keep in mind that this is all opinion anyway. There truly is no introverted extravert. A person is either an introvert or extravert. Also within one type the degree of extraversion or introversion can vary a lot. Anyway here are my reasons:

    I've known a ton of NTP's but I've only known a few NFJ's. Consistently the INTP is the most aloof and withdrawn type (although INFP's are pretty close to this too). One may wonder if some INTP's need to be around people at all or do anything but sit there and ponder things.

    Likewise the ENTP is the extravert that appears the most introverted. ENTP's also appear fairly withdrawn and aloof, but they have a need to seek out people and new excitement and activity. An ENTP is an extravert, but to others they can appear introverted a lot of the time. Some of this comes from personal experience, but I'm pretty sure that my E preference is slight even compared to other ENTP's. However I've seen other ENTP's described as introverts before. One example that sticks in my head is the main character from "Meet the Robinsons", who is pretty clearly ENTP. In the behind the scenes the director said he saw this character as an introverted type. Although he also compared him to Walt Disney a lot (another ENTP). I don't think the director knew MBTI, but I think he simply saw the inventor type as an introvert.

    My wife is an INFJ, and people often think that she is an extravert and that I'm an introvert. They don't realize that I'm the one that wanted to get out of the house, while she wanted to stay in. In public she appears much more gregarious than I do though. I only know one other person who I am certain is INFJ, but she first appeared to be extraverted to me too.

    There is only one ENFJ that I've known well, but she is also the most extraverted person I've known. She wanted a small army of people around her wherever she went.

    This.

    Some ISFPs can be easily confused for extroverts in my experience.

    Overall, I agree with this list:
