    I suspect that's part of being an INTJ/ENTJ. I understand where you're coming from - I care little what others think most all 90% ? of the time, especially as it pertains to my own thoughts / feelings.

    Only if it is in a transient state. However, introversion would also be easily defined as a lack of positive emotions... least, that's one definition of it.

    I've bolded the parts that I find questionable. I don't think that's healthy introversion. I would also like to add before I get tarred and feathered that I don't view introversion as a personality defect. If you need to be alone to recharge, that's fine. I don't try and force social interactions with the introverts in my life (at least to the best of my ability). Nor am I trying to quantify how much alone time introverts need.

    I am not suggesting introverts make themselves into extroverts and then everything will be sunshine and rainbows. If the people listed in these situations are content with their lives as they are then they should continue as they are. But Toonia mentioned some of them experiencing anxiety just thinking about interacting with people. I wonder if people are confusing social anxiety and phobias with introversion.
    An introvert marries an introvert.
    Interesting.
    What happens?

    Nothing.
    If a happening is a sign of a (social) life.

    A marriage between introverts is the best kind of a marriage.

    Sometimes.

    Be careful, you might get sent to the Graveyard for that attitude.

    Then again, probably not.

    Yes.
    This is what it is.

    A definition.

    What else but a definition?
    Nothing.

    Undoubtedly. I have a hard time resisting anything with wings.

    Two objections:

    1)External display of emotions does not equal internal state of person
    2)Lack of both positive and negative emotions can still be classified as happiness, imho

    Ok, but I'm not sure how that factors into it. Negative state of mind is unhealthy once it becomes normal - doubly so for emotions, which implies physiological change; similar to long term stress.

    2)Lack of both positive and negative emotions can still be classified as happiness, imho
    Not really.

    Anyway, I was using the more biological definition of extraversion, which relates to positive emotions.

    But what about unleashing anger? That seems like one of the more extraverted traits.
