Naturally there's also the person who masquerades as a learner by asking lots of questions, but in fact, they're a persuader/teacher, because their questions are often rhetorical or 'loaded', framed in such a way as to force the person responding to wind up helping them communicate their opinion.
Of course every time we interact with another person in any way it's a social act, but I was talking more about people's priorities, methods and motivations. Like an unsocial type would do social things but seeing the social side of it as a necessary sorta evil to get the knowledge or whatever that they want, whilst an extreme social person would possibly engage with somebody in a more businesslike (rather than personal) manner but seeing that as a necessary evil to earn their respect and gain their friendship.
whatever - it's not about whether people listen to you or not, it's how things are coming from your end, what you do and intend to do, how and why you do it. I dunno, I think you're somewhere in the bottom left corner, sorta opposite athenian, above targo. Cos I'd say though you do often give opinions, they're usually sorta reactive opinions to what you've just learned in a way and often changing and updating, rather than what you sorta came to say. And you seem to me to be more of an info seeker and question asker than info divulger and question answerer. What do you think?
As for me, I'd say my approach was more about absorption and learning (Ne), except that I know in honesty that there is always the intention of using what I learn and wanting others to benefit from it, which involves teaching and persuasion - often the persuasion part is simply getting someone to listen lol but that's the extraversion I think... the desire to be active in and influential on the external world.
Maybe I ought to devise some sort of questionnaire for this...
