    Default E / I: another definition

    I came across this quote by Jacques Costeau, "I am extroverted, I do not find pleasure in asking questions about myself. I find my satisfaction in dealing with questions that concern the community and the outside world."

    That seems a fair interpretation.

    I am introverted and I do not find pleasure in asking questions about myself. I find my satisfaction in dealing with questions that concern the community and the outside world.

    I am introverted because I unwind by myself, such that I have the energy and motivation again to carry on my mission to be a powerful and just force in my community and for my people who I choose to aid.

    Yeah, actually what is described here sounds more like the definition of Fe than strictly extroversion.

    I find pleasure in asking questions about myself, as well as what's around me.

    Fe: "My main function is Fe, I do not find pleasure in asking questions about myself. I find my satisfaction in dealing with questions that concern the community and the outside world."
    Fi: "My main function is Fi, I do not find pleasure in dealing with questions that concern the community and the outside world. I find my satisfaction in asking questions about myself."

    Extroversion: "I am extroverted, I am energized by the outside world, and I enjoy including myself within it."
    Introversion: "I am introverted, I am energized by my own thoughts, and I prefer doing things by myself."

    At least, that's how I take it.
    Isn't life under the sun just a crazy, crazy, crazy dream? Isn't life just a mirage of the world before the world? Why am I here and not over there? When did time begin? Where does space end? Where do you and I begin?

    I agree.

    I honestly don't think I'm anymore extroverted than introverted, but the ENFP descriptions fit me much more than the INFP ones. Heh, I'm an only child. I specialize in introversion and extroversion.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    So you are saying unlike costeau you do not gain pleasure from thinking of others. I knew it, ENFPs only think of themselves...

    lolz...My Fe is just as high as my Fi, so I'd have to say that is incorrect. I'm a nurturer by nature though. So, ENFPs only think of themselves, eh?

    So you're balanced E I and J P... I've yet to see signs of this nuture nature.

    Naa, I'm def more P than J. I'm balanced E/I though, but even if I was leaning I, I'd still classify myself as an ENFP since the type description fits me best.

    What signs do you seek?
