    Default What is known about 50/50 Extroversion / Introversion?

    It isn't hard to understand that some people are extremely extroverted. Or extremely introverted. I know a few.

    But how about people, like me, that have more or less 50 percent extroversion and introversion? I like to be alone and charge myself in silence, but I also like to be among other people and I really enjoy them. I have done a lot of MBTI-tests over a period of 5 years, and on average my score is 50/50. I even have typed myself terrible wrong in the beginning, but E and I were always equally.
    So in addition to this, in terms of MBTI it is hard to tell if my primary cognitive process is E or I.

    E/I in relation to cognitive function and E/I as traits aren't quite the same thing. In the big 5 test for example that wouldn't really be considered exotic, just well balanced. I think the vast majority of mbti style tests you find online drop the ball by asking questions that have more to do with how much extraversion you possess as a trait then if your main function is E/I.
    For example, I can think of at least 2 people I know quite well that are clearly E's in the mbti sense (ESFP and ESTJ), who are a lot more uncomfortable around strangers than I am.
    Also from the functions point of view you might just use your secondary function a hell of a lot. Which is generally a good thing.

    I think most people who can't tell if they are extraverts or introverts are generally introverts with a social fix first (or at least second).

    I feel like I'm one of these people too...like, you can't tell whether I'm an introvert or an extrovert. Between the people who know me well, half would insist that I'm an extrovert and half that I'm an introvert.

    The extroverts say I am introverted while the introverts say I am extroverted, typically.

    Outcast, you don't belong with anybody!

    I would have to see a video of you to know though. Do you have one?

    I did if you are willing to look through the recesses of the video challenge thread. It is really crappy because the video is really dark (has little to no lighting).

    Even my introverted friends say I'm introverted. But I'm more N than F, so ENFP it is.
