    There's a study that claims that extroverts use different neural pathways than introverts. Extroverts use pathways that result in quicker dopamine hits.

    that makes sense since dopamine is related to desire and motivation.

    If this link doesn't come through at the right place in the book, refer to chapter 38. It suggests that the influences can be nature or nurture where nurture can be either expectation of or dependent on dopamine rewards.

    Nope, you're not missing anything. I mean, I guess I'm moderately shy, but I not most shy person I know. If anything, I'd try to help whoever that is.

    The only thing I think you're missing is that I think INFPs and INTPs don't always intentionally set out to be that way. While ISPs break a lot of molds on purpose.

    i wonder if extraverts are more likely to be prone to addiction.

    Could you please elaborate on that? Sorry if I sound obtuse, but I'm not sure I get the distinction you're making...

    I recall reading something about types and addictions. The only thing I can remember is that ENTJs were almost at the bottom of the scale for being prone to addictions and that NTs in general weren't prone to addictions as compared to other types. Can't recall the validity of the information so I'm going to try to find the study again.
