I see the most common dynamics to be like this, put abstractly. This doesn't take other type characteristics into account which are, IMO, just as important.
Introverts' psyches are are O shaped, and extroverts' are C shaped.
OO results in, as you can see, two separate units which may exist comfortably together, but do not fully engage.
CC (flip the second C around) results in each unit attempting to engage the other simultaneously, resulting in interference.
CO results in a solid fit, with O being peacefully engaged by C.
This is one of those analogies that look pretty but don't really work as well in real life.
~ a definite introvert with a very strong preference for other introverts and a marked distaste for extroverts.

I've been thinking about introversion and extraversion, and the interaction between people who are I's and E's. I'm sorry if there's already a thread that deals with this subject, I tried to go back but none caught my eye
I know introverts may well enjoy the company of extraverts, (although worthy of an acknowledgement that in large doses it may be draining), but do extraverts enjoy introverts company? As in, would an extravert seek out the company of an introvert to another extravert? To stereotype even more, if introverts are seen as "shy" in group situations and extraverts as "outgoing". What in introverts might interest extraverts?
In general, do you tend to get intrigued (regardless of you introversion or extraversion) in outgoing people rather than less outgoing individuals? What are the best aspects an extravert and an introvert can offer you?
I know I put this in an extremely simple form, and of course I don't expect it to be that way in reality, but it's just one of the things I've been thinking. I'm really interested in what you guys think about this, so your thoughts on the subject are very welcomed (:
I hang out with my introvert friends the most often, I like their company and they are a breath of fresh air (I live with Es.)
