    True. I am chastened!

    i think extroverts and introverts will disagree because they have different criteria for satisfying their social desires. as i said, for one to be better than the other we would first have to agree on to what ends we are comparing the two, which is why im not sure why a competitive element was introduced here

    Not really taking it personally, just begging to differ with this.

    Since these aren't really qualities of an extravert.

    i'm just being defensive because i don't appreciate being painted inaccurately. i do not think either is superior. i mentioned that in a previous post. i am only saying we put ours out there while you keep more of it in...we are not lacking in depth because of this.

    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) ?

    yeah let's not fall into the 'what do extroverts do in their free time : they party' \ "what do introverts do in their free times: they touch themselves" clichs

    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

    just a thought on what somebody told earlier about how animals seemed to have only external references.
