    Default Introverts and Extraverts Explained

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXBFnqu8VxE

    I submitted a introvert vs extravert video on youtube. Watch it if you want, and I would love some critique and feedback

    Not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this, if not just let me know!

    How do you guys spot introverts or extraverts? Are there any specific body movements/posture/behavior that you look for (besides just the obvious)?

    Weird I totally thought INTP when I was watching your video...and lo and behold I look at your user name and type, and you're an INTP.

    I know an old man who is like that dude who talks to everyone all day long extrovert. I think the most interesting part of your video is where you say that extroverts will go physically toward people (or stay neutral) and introverts will physically draw back a little.

    I like how you mention multiple factors contributing, looking at the big picture.

    The battery thing "way energy is taken" has always been a difficult way to reference myself. I tend to score middle ground on dichotomy tests but quite a bit more extroverted on cog functions. This is because behaviorally my battery responds almost equally. Alone a little too long and I must get external stimuli. With people too long and I must get away to think. I almost always approach people if there is an option to, frequently open discussion, but also stay in a neutral zone or step back while interacting. (I think i do this to have a better view of full body communication? and am also hyper aware of peoples "comfort zone" or space. ) So my big picture is rather contradictory, and I have settled on extroversion for now based on tertiary and inferior functions.

    Yeah, after awhile you start noticing communication patterns in types. I think INTPs' communication isn't too hard to spot.

    Right, when going by the four preferences alone, I tend to get confused. Really, the best path to understanding MBTI is understanding the cognitive functions.

    I'm going to be doing videos on those once I cover the preferences.

    Another thing i noticed. Unless the person has ADD with hyperactivity, introverts overall seem more even keel (the energy is self-contained) while extroverts seem more reactive and exude energy more steadily.

    Yeah I agree, this is especially noticeable when contrasting ExxPs and IxxJs.
