    Your understanding of introversion/extroversion is laughable.

    Many great poets, inventors, theologians, mathematcians, military leaders, and even politicians.

    Plato comes to mind, alan turing, ghandi, Wittgenstein, Thoreau, newton, proust, kirkegaard, kant, Rousseau, Descartes, neitzsche, voltaire, buddha, confucius, jesus, lincoln, jfk, pretty sure ceasar as well. I'm sure with a bit of research I could go on and on.

    Edit:

    Forbes.com has an article on it. They list: einstein, warren buffet, chopin, darwin, ghandi, al gore, newton, Larry page (cofounder of google), rosa parks, eleanor Roosevelt, j.k. rowling, and more
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Most (great) writers.
    Most anyone who engages in a largely solitary pursuit is probably introverted.

    Come to think of it, I can think of much more important introverted people than extraverted people. So nyer! :P

    Just read some history books. I can't begin to describe the number of introverts who have made a difference in major ways to external reality, as they had hoped.

    If it's too broad a topic, why not just look at US presidents? There's quite a number of introverts in the 40+ leaders we've had since our country began.

    The answer just seems so clear that I'm thinking your definition of introvert is far more restrictive than the theory would suppose.

    I was trying mostly to get a rise out of people to learn a little about the subject, but it didnt work very well.


    actually, i lied, it worked fairly well.


    Also, i wouldnt consider a lot of the people mentioned here important to history. Things would be the same without jung, but not without say che guevara.

    Maybe, as one poster stated, i have no grasp on what introversion/extroversion is. I really cant bring myself to read :/




    also i was really really drunk when i wrote this. that's my excuse for most things, i've noticed.....

    That in itself raises an interesting thought though...

    ...If the introverts are the ones that write history...

    Yeah, but now you're liable to be the first one thrown off the boat when supplies run low. Gratz!

    You really believe Freud had no influence on the development of Western thought, which in turn impacted social policies and the direction of scientific study, etc?

    I guess some guy shoots someone else with a gun, that makes a fast and direct impact on the outer world. But it's not the only way to impact reality.

    also i was really really drunk when i wrote this. that's my excuse for most things, i've noticed.....
    LOL! Okay, I'll buy that one, it's pretty honest.
