    It just occurred to me. I read it somewhere and always thought there were twice as many Es as there were Is. It didn't align with my experiences though. I thought they must be somewhere else.

    Yeah, same with the personal experience, I've generally been surrounded by a relatively even amount of E/I people, with a slight leaning towards I actually.

    The old stats were from a 1964 American study conducted by David Keirsey and Marilyn Bates, they had the percentages as:

    Extraversion 75%, Introversion 25%
    Sensing 75%, iNtuition 25%
    Thinking 50%, Feeling 50%
    Judging 50%, Perceiving 50%

    As stated before, I don't believe those figures, they don't align with my experience.

    Right - those are the ones I saw. Actually learned something today.

    Just over 50%, I'd synthesize.

    Most "introverts" are just broken extroverts who have developed coping mechanisms and self-rationalize their behaviour.

    I'd bother with a retort, but you'd just convince yourself I was rationalizing.

    Why is it that extroversion is considered the norm? It seems to me that most people are under the impression that there is more value in being with people than being alone.

    Here's what I think.

    There may be a lot of slightly introverted people.
    But the number of the very introverted people compared to the number of the very extraverted people is way smaller.

    There are way more talkative dramatic agitated very extraverted people..than the talk less think more type.
    --

    Also extraverted principles are pushed down the introverts throath...so well ... some introverts may act like extraverts, but they the are slightly introverted.

    Perhaps it's because most people can't go a day without smalltalking about inane things, and every mainstream show out there tells you to "go out and meet new people" as the quick fix to every problem in the world. The country in which I live might be at the extreme end of things, but I'd say that true introverts make up no more than 10% of the population.

    Humans are social creatures, so it makes sense for the majority of people to be extraverted.

    If I had to guess I'd say its a 2:1 ratio.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.
