xNTP: Yes Eckhart Tolle is an extravert but barely. You are obviously thinking extreme extravert. He's extraverted enough that he has a very public life and seems to relish it.
Clean up your language please.
“Sheldon considers human beings as they really are - psycho-physical wholes.”
“the first serious advance of the science of man since Aristotle”
“For the first time the old insights and intuitions about the different kinds of human beings have been clarified and put on a firmly objective and measurable basis.”

I wouldnt classify him as a type, I think he is above that level. If I were to guess his "type" I might assume ISFP based on what I've read of his, including the quotes below. He has a very soft, calm and gentle spirit. I don't think he would necessarily be an N. He talks so much about being in the moment and his writing is very simplistic and concise. He speaks slowly and is often quiet in interviews, just witnessing what's around him. I think he is a Sensor. His whole teachings are centered in being in the Now, that's a sensing trait. His statements are sequential and orderly, they aren't overly complex like an intuitive thinker. The meanings behind what he says progress systematically in a way that anyone can understand. He's definitely not a judger because he is far too open minded. He is definitely an introvert.
"All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness" (sensors can sit with a sense of Gods presence without many words or thoughts. Simply to be in God's presence wherever/ whatever one is doing is a deep prayer)
"Feeling will get you closer to the truth of who you are than thinking." (dominant feeler)
"Life is now. There was never a time when your life was not now, nor will there ever be." (like a sensor- lives in present moment)
"If you are content with being nobody in particular, content not to stand out, you align yourself with the power of the universe."
"Even when the sky is heavily overcast, the sun hasn't disappeared. It's still there on the other side of the clouds." (sensors are more likely to see God in reality based ways; a sunset, a forest of trees, etc.. Whereas intuitive types are more appreciative of symbols. ISFP's especially have an aesthetic appreciation for the beauty of nature)
"You are one with the sun, the earth, the air. You don't have a life. You are life."
"Being must be felt, it can't be thought" (extraverted sensors can listen with their heart to what people are saying)
"Without perceiving things through the old filter of past conditioning and conceptualization, one can sense the universe is intensely alive."
"Thinking is a wonderful tool if it's applied. Thinking, however, can not become the master. Thinking is a very bad master. If you're dominated by thinking then your life becomes very restricted."
"Enlightenment means rising above thought, not falling back to a level below thought, the level of an animal or a plant. In the enlightened state, you still use your thinking mind when needed, but in a much more focused and effective way than before."
"Identification with your mind creates an opaque screen of concepts, labels, images, words, judgments, and definitions that blocks all true relationship."
"Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the Now the primary focus of your life."
"Just be, and enjoy being. If you are present, there is never any need for you to wait for anything."
"Let go of thought, become still and alert, and don't try to understand or explain." (A thinking type will have a strong need to make sense of his faith logically, Tolle actually advises against this)
"Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally."
When you don't cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life that was lost a long time ago when humanity, instead of using thought, became possessed by thought.”
― Eckhart Tolle
"Words reduce reality to something the human mind can grasp, which isn't very much" (he is content in being quiet)
"If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place"
Power over others is weakness disguised as strength. True power if within, and it is available to you now.
"The moment that judgment stops through acceptance of what is, you are free of the mind"
