    [edit] Extraversion
    Extraversion is "the act, state, or habit of being predominantly concerned with and obtaining gratification from what is outside the self".[3] Extraverts tend to enjoy human interactions and to be enthusiastic, talkative, assertive, and gregarious. They take pleasure in activities that involve large social gatherings, such as parties, community activities, public demonstrations, and business or political groups. Politics, teaching, sales, managing, and brokering are fields that favor extraversion. An extraverted person is likely to enjoy time spent with people and find less reward in time spent alone. They tend to be energized when around other people, and they are more prone to boredom when they are by themselves.


    [edit] Introversion
    Introversion is "the state of or tendency toward being wholly or predominantly concerned with and interested in one's own mental life".[3] Introverts tend to be more reserved and less assertive in social situations. They often take pleasure in solitary activities such as reading, writing, drawing, and using computers. The archetypal artist, writer, sculptor, composer, and inventor are all highly introverted. An introvert is likely to enjoy time spent alone and find less reward in time spent with large groups of people, though they tend to enjoy interactions with close friends. They prefer to concentrate on a single activity at a time and like to observe situations before they participate.[4] Introverts are easily overwhelmed by too much stimulation from social gatherings and engagement. They are more analytical before speaking.[5]

    Introversion is not the same as shyness. Introverts choose solitary over social activities by preference, whereas shy people avoid social encounters out of fear.[6]

    At this point I don't expect an Introvert to be able to tell the difference (and I don't know if I blame you for it), but I do like social interaction very much. I do like to spend time with friends and meeting new people etc.

    But put me anywhere where I need to follow any rules to socialize and its charm is lost somewhat...

    I feel that way everywhere. I am somewhat of an Ambivert, i believe i scored pretty even in extrovert and introvert, and I abhor social rules.

    yeah agreed...it just depends on the crowd. i can be at some huge music festival, concert, crowded dance club or rave party...and feel totally buzzed on the energy of all the people but some big christmas party at my exes workplace with all his banker friends....i can do it for about 30 min...but it drains me....i would rather do just about anything else.

    Its funny too, because at a concert I'm loving it, but at my girlfriend's mom's friends house...(think self diagnosing munchaussen who also acts like she knows everything about everything and makes up "facts" as she goes along, maybe she only bugs me cause I'm INTP idk) and I will be fine, then all of a sudden it hits me...

    Many ESTP type descriptions state something to the effect that we are "used car salesmen" or "con-men", of which I am neither. :rolli:

    I'm sure there are others but this one is the most garrish and insulting so it comes to mind first.

    I fit most of the type description. I don't fit a lot of the people's descriptions of ESFP on this site- i'm not slow or flaky or a porn star.

    As far as the type description goes- i'm not forgetful of appointments or late for things all the time. (Sometimes, though.) But i'm usually right on time or a few minutes early. I have that Te working strong for me so I have each days schedule pretty down in my head. I'm not extremely expressive. A lot of the descriptions say they are highly expressive of happy feelings and not of sad, making them look shallow. I think i'm not all that expressive in general or overly talkative. (Talkative, but not non stop chatter box.)

    INFPs are angels-> People need to stop mixing politeness with kindness...
    INFPs are always understanding/forgiving-> Get on my nerves, then you'll understand.
    INFPs are pushovers-> I'm pretty patient but I'm not a pushover. I don't think twice about crossing someone or something out if it's get too much in the way or starts bothering me.

    I think I make a "meek" first impression so people think I will let myself be walked over . What a shame
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-
