    Default Introversion=Extraversion?

    Okay, so I've been inspired by a few sources to juggle some ideas around bout the nature of introversion and extraversion. Imagine if, through introversion, you dug deep enough into your own subjectivity and "inner world" that you say the "outer-world" as clear as possible. I'm going to guess that doing so would require full acknowledgement that your inner-world is just that and nothing else.

    Bear with me.



    If this is true, would recognition of one's inner-world be possible by turning one's eye entirely into the outer-world?

    If you don't quite grasp what my meaning is, please ask.

    I'm namely starting this thread because I would be interested to see if any extraverts resonate with the idea that if they lended everything they had into extraversion, then they would find their introverted side in full light.

    The more one loves God, the more it is that having nothing in the world means everything, and the less one loves God, the more it is that having everything in the world means nothing.

    When I introvert more, it gets ...... weirder and not more 'real'.

    This is touching on my old schtick about the tert function being naturally opposite the dominant. And when it's not opposite the dominant, and it combines into the same attitude as the dominant, and is used predominantly for long periods of time and the aux ignored, you get either extreme introversion or extraversion, which can result in neuroses. But I know most people don't buy that Jungian position because they've learned mbti, and other more current function theories.

    You are suggesting your functions suddenly juxtapose and become the opposite attitude, i.e. if you introvert more, you will suddenly extravert and see the light?

    External world is just a mental image built inside your head. extraversion is putting a meaning to this mental image from inside of your head. introversion is removing irrelevant and making deductions of this mental image.

    So that's how you work.

    It's not necessarily that you "extravert". What I'm suggesting is that, through introversion, you acknowledge your introversion in much the same way enneagram practitioners suggest that you may escape the trappings of your primary enneagram type by noticing patterns in your faulty thinking processes. If you know the thesis, then it follows that you know the antithesis, even if you are still occupied by the thesis. It's basically differentiating between the rest of the world and you.

    Well, in the spirit of this thread, if she is evil, then knowing her will give you some insight into good.

    I'm not talking about reality. What I said, explicitly, was seeing as clear as possible.
