    Every single book I read says, "If you don't know what an E is thinking, you're not listening."

    yeah...nocaps didn't think that through.

    of course we do...we just think on the fly.

    I guess it's part of being an introvert, but I just assumed my entire life that everything someone says is only 1/4 of what they're thinking. I mean, that's the way it is with me, so why not everyone else? That is, until I found MBTI.

    ^^ well of course we can't actually say everything...i guess it depends on the situation...that second that you have the thought right before you talk...i guess you usually know if it's appropriate to share...but not always...or you don't always take that sec to pause....depending on the situation...like around my close friends or in informal situations i don't pause...but in a work environment or something i might try to pause first.

    and...i'll add that occasionally i have gotten shy with someone i was attracted to because i guess i couldn't/ shouldn't actually say anything i was thinking...so...i wonder if that's a typical e thing to do in the beginning.

    So, that just reinforces the "What you hear is what you get" with an E in a conversation? That'd explain why some E's feel uncomfortable around me, since I'm spending 1/3 of the time listening, 1/3 formulating responses, and the last part actually talking while they're just rambling on.

    ^^ right...and i can tell when someone is only taking in part of it because they are thinking about what they're going to say next...i can see those wheels turning in there!!

    As with all generalizations only a third of it is true. Es are just as good at lying, being hypocritical and being secretive if not better.

    And obviously, if I think someone is a "son of a bitch" I'm not going to tell it to their face unless provoked or in the mood to be confrontationalist.




    For me being an E is about exploring new people as one would explore new cultures; and also ego-boosting - bask in your proficiency and make other people admire you. This is all very "in your face" but I think at a subconscious level that's basically it.
