But honestly, I anticipated that's what you wanted. I've been meaning to write it out. It's taking some time to hit me on what I want to say. I just didn't want you to expect it sooner than I could give.
I hope you get better soon. I'm feeling, and fe-eeling, sick too. zz
+ GETGETGET LENORE THOMPSON'S BOOK!
...b/c I just realised after posting that I could've excerpted her on Extraverts vs Introverts. Dammit. Ni-Ti analysis paralysis stopped me from knowing I could've used her words instead of forcing mine.
++ Her book, as far as I've read, is just awesome. And no freakin' stereotyping of Sensors or what I/E Sensing means. Or of the other functions and Type in general. I'm so sick of the stereotyping, I could mash bones.
Here here, I've got cookies for you. You just have to get yourself some milk.
On what's usually attributed to E vs I, though she uses Extra not Extro, she says,"Such stereotypes may be predictable in a culture like ours, but they aren't useful to either type. [E/I]". (p. 113)"When Jung set out to describe Extraversion and Introversion, he understood them simply as two opposing ways of dealing with life, comparable to expending energy and conserving it. Because Extraverts regard objective reality as absolute, they will expend energy to relate themselves to it. Introverts, who emphasize what the bring to reality from within, will seek to protect their subjective point of view." (p. 114)
