Who needs people anyway? All they do is make fun of you.
...I'm not self-conscious enough to be able to explain how I go about it, though.

the first function would theoretically dictate introversion or extroversion, as well as the nature of that. theoretically, INTP would prefer introverted thinking backed up extroverted intuition, while the ENTP would start with Ne followed by Ti.
but that's just a guess, im not terribly knowledgeable on MBTI

other people are highly significant in the sense that we all share the same human experience. other people are the key to a lot of your world, most of what you know and see on a day to day basis is the result of other people. it is hard to appreciate them sometimes, though, because they do exist... i think if everyone suddenly disappeared it would be easier to see why they are important.
I am anything but a people person and I will say that for the good part I don't see the point of extroversion.
Many arguments of extroverts come down to "People a important", "You need people to progress further", "Everybody needs people"
To be completly honset I don't see what is so special about people. We all need other people in some way but this sounds almost as dogma.
If you are interested in psychology then you will probably see the diffrent side of the coin. But most people are not interested in psychology.
What do you find so attractive in other people (in general) ?
You're completely welcome to go out and live in the wilderness and become self-sufficient if you don't want to take advantage of the fruits of other people.
i understand how what i said could seem incendiary in a have/have-not sort of why, youll have to pardon the vocabulary
i couldnt honestly say i think extroverts introspect to the same extent that i do. simply because that is a quality of mine doesnt make it superior, in fact im not really sure why im inclined to do that so often. i dont intend for that to be interpreted as overall depth of knowledge or insightfulness, just as i wouldnt presume that the depth of an introvert's inner world is superior or more useful than the depth of an extroverts knowledge based on exterior observations
but...that might be the point...or the distinction. you're basing it on your outside observances to which you're not really participating in to the extent we are. i think we are introspective but we share our findings more...it's the sharing of that world that's the difference and believe me...you introverts that i come in contact with share their inner world as much if not more than i do.
There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

I am not bothered at all. I would even dare to say that I was expecting this kind of a reply, since I get this kind of an answer everytime I ask this question.
