    It's called being an IxFx. OH!

    Ambiverts are healthy balanced individuals who don't even deserve to know about MBTI.

    I'm inclined to agree with those comments.


    There are three groups, according to Jung. Not two.

    "There is, finally, a third group... the most numerous and includes the less differentiated normal man...
    He constitutes the extensive middle group..
    . I call the first group extraverted and the second group introverted" (p516, Psychological Types)

    "There is no such thing as a pure extrovert or a pure introvert.
    Such a man would be in the lunatic asylum.
    They are only terms to designate..., a certain tendency....the tendency to be more influenced by environmental factors, or more influenced by the subjective factor, that's all.
    There are people who are fairly well balanced and are just as much influenced from within as from without, or just as little".

    I feel perfectly comfy being alone, and whilst I do enjoy being with people, it all depends on the people. Obviously like anyone else, like minded people energize me whilst being a fish out of water drains me. And regardless, I still need to have a good few hours of solitude before I go to bed, which is why, as the kids get older and go to bed later, I'm getting less and less sleep!

    But... when i'm on my own, my solitary pursuits still tend to be externally focused, which is what gives me away, I think
    Can you explain and ideally give an example or two of what you mean when you say your solitary pursuits are externally focused? And perhaps what you'd describe as internally focused pursuits? Thanks!
