    I have three potential interpretations of my own. But I'm curious what your eyes see.

    Interpretation 1: The female in your avatar just bitch slapped the male who is falling over in utter defeat, whilest the woman turns away from him with a 'talk to the hand, cuz the face ain't listening' attitude, opening a book and ignoring his existance by reading solemnly.

    Interpretation 2: The male is inviting the lay with the woman on the tree branch, but the woman is scare of the little bugs on the branches. And is also much to interested in what happens next chapter of her romantic book to be interested in the guy.

    Interpretation 3: She caught the male, who happens to be her son, reading a prono magazine and she furiously takes it away from him, leaving him to his own devices.


    Also, the test isn't actually a test, I was just bored and admired your avatar for a while, and mixed it into this post whilest what I actually wanted to say starts after these three dots... We all see what our own eyes see. Other people don't realize how different each set of eyes perceive the same world however, and assume others see what they see. Therein lie all misinterpretations. Do not feel angered or sad for what others see or fail to see. Feel pity for them instead. So that in turn you will not be sad or angered with yourself when you fail to see their eyes. But feel pity on yourself instead. Which is by far the better option!
    I meant to answer this before. Your interpretations of my avatar really made me laugh! As you may or may not know, it's actually "The Beguiling of Merlin" by Edward Burne-Jones. Overall, your first interpretation is closest to the real story. (She's about to lock him inside a tree and steal his magical powers!!)

    You're right about interpretation. I feel that I "know" intellectually that others see things differently from me, but it's a hard thing to "know" emotionally, particularly when it's in a situation where you might get hurt. Oddly, people tend to misinterpret me in a somewhat complimentary way, but it still tends to annoy/upset me especially if it has a potentially negative effect on me (ie. people assume that I'm more independent than I actually am, hence I wouldn't need or want their social invitations, or need/want a relationship.) But it's good to remember that we all err in a similar way, however much we may work at being perceptive and understanding.

    I've been thinking about this and I think that introversion's ability to shut out all the shit that happens around an individual. That might just be a lack of Se, but I can usually bear things easily that would debilitate extroverts, like an extremely hot or cold day, a bunch of strangers being jerks, or uncomfortable situations. I'm usually pretty detached mostly due to my introversion and I am not easily bothered.

    Dont think that's introversion that's more a sad sac . When I think of Introverts I think of philosophers comtemplating a billion ideas in their heads, being utterly mysterious not speaking a word. What you described sounds more like that:
