    Okay. I love to be around Extroverts. I find them invigorating and fun. And at some level there must be stress involved because I need some alone time when I expend too much social energy.

    I think what ShadowBoxer is trying to ask is: INFPs, you do feel intimidated by ENFPs? Do you ISFPs feel anxious around the ESFPs? How do you INTJs feel about yourselves in the presence of ENTJs. And etc...

    I think it's as hard for I's to really understand E's as it is for E's to understand I's.

    I personally admire Introvert's skill of being pleased with their own company.

    So cynical today, I see.

    I quite like E's. Most make me feel comfortable if they get a conversation going, and there's no scale of uncoolness or coolness anywhere. If I want social interaction, I actually prefer it with someone who isn't more reserved than me.

    An ISFP was stating that she felt not cool enough when around ESFPs. Then the next person, an INFP stated that they felt this way about ENFPs. My friend, sitting next to me is an INTJ, said, 'How odd, the ENTJs make me feel that way.' I also know an ISTJ who is extremely uncomfortable around ESTJs.

    So, I was curious, for all of you Ixxx types, does your extroverted version make you feel 'not cool enough' or make you feel intimidated?

    I am not sure that four is enough to make a pattern, but I thought I would ask.

    It seems to some degree it is possible that Is would be uncomfortable around Es, since we are so...noisy, out there, however you want to put it, but I also think that it might be even more prevalent of a feeling in the extroverted version of your same type.

    What do you all think?
    Hmm, no. I am not really shy socially if that makes a difference. And I feel quite individualistic - I kind of compete with myself rather than compare myself to others if that makes sense.

    Outside of romantic involvements, I don't get uncomfortable around Es. (I can be a little uncomfortable around very aggressive men who are more often than not Es.) I can get a bit annoyed if one of my E friends is very demanding about spending a lot of time together though.

    I seem to get along well with ENFJs in friendships if they accept that I am not as high interaction as they are. I have had a really close ENFJ friend before, she was wonderful and we were inseparable. The other significant friendship I had with an ENFJ girl went sour because she wanted much more interaction than I, (every weekend.) She would try to feeling-bully me into things which would peeve me greatly. (<-- all from my POV, I'm sure she probably thought I was hard work.)

    well...i can be quieter around other more extraverted people, including my enfp sister but it just depends on my mood.

    Sometimes I wish my ESTP brother would shut up and quit being so loud. But that's about it.

    The only time I'm uncomfortable around extraverts is when I'm in a group of them who expect everyone to be extraverted and don't understand that people are different. I don't encounter much of that since high school though.
