    That could get expensive if you own decent cookware. Or do you retrieve it after the temper tantrum?

    I'm not speaking for myself. I live in a suburban area. It's OK, I guess, except for highways and movie theaters.

    But then, I didn't grow up with it, either. I think this issue is more nurture (upbringing and culture) than nature.
    lol, don't worry, I know an ESFP who said she hates being hugged. That amused me.

    Hmm, I always think of myself as an easy-to-approach person, but I have to say, now that I live in a big city, I feel like my personal space is being invaded all the time. I hate having so many people walking so close to me on the street and having so many strangers approaching me. With my friends/family, I'm always accused of being the affectionate one, though.

    I understand the influences of culture, and even rural/urban in that city dwellers usually live in much closer quarters with others, literally rubbing shoulders with strangers routinely. Type is a separate factor, whose influence becomes convolved with the others. An introvert in the city, or growing up in a culture where touching and closeness are commonplace, may develop a greater tolerance for it or greater strategies for handling it, but still won't necessarily like it. For an extravert, these tendencies instead reinforce each other.

    I am certainly toward the end of the spectrum that wants to maximize personal space. I don't like to share my workspace, don't like to sit in crowded theaters or lecture halls, and despise the close quarters of airplanes and even airport waiting areas. I can count on one hand the people whose hugs I actually enjoy, and the number whose hugs I will tolerate is quite limited. (Shaking hands is fine.) One thing that annoys me about associating with women (perhaps just older women?) is that they feel a need to touch while we are talking - just a pat on the arm, or a hand on the shoulder - not prodding or guiding in any way, more as if to emphasize a point. But why??? I have learned to anticipate this and step back, or just stand out of range entirely.

    I suppose it is good, then, that we came to know each other online.

    I'm not sure on this. I have a lucky environment where most people only touch to shake hands or greet with a brief hug and kiss if female.

    I used to hate crowds of people or any area in which I had to be in close proximity to anyone. However now i'm older and more experienced this anxiety is almost non-existent. In fact one girl at work loves to hug me all the time and there is even one lady in particular at my mum and dad's climbing club where I GIVE her a hug.

    My physical size is another factor. I wouldn't say i'm huge but I am fairly tall and some can find that imposing so i'm rather self aware of my body, albeit still clumsy nonetheless.
