We're used to definitions of extraversion that describe social, bubbly people. In fact it makes it very easy when we come across gregarious and loud people to type them as Es. But the functions of Ne and Ti aren't particularly inviting to other people.
The INTP has been described as very introverted compared to other introverts as Dominant Ti has no interest in other people in a subjective sense and Auxiliary Ne may be a cause of bone idleness. But do the same functions reversed make the most "introverted" extravert?
I don't think so. I think it has to do with the definition of the term extravert. Bubbly and loud people are easy flags by which to recognise extraverts but they are by no means the only extraverted qualities.
Though sometimes given to INTPs, the quintessential image of an ENTP is the mad, obsessive professor. This makes them sound like loners, and in fiction at least it seems to be played out. Dr Emmet L. Brown from the Back to the Future trilogy lives a seemingly solitary existence. Captain Jack Sparrow, as expressive as he is, has no true friends and shares a large portion of his adventures by himself.
But the fictional ENTP character that inspired me to write this, leads a completely unshared existence. Of course I am talking about:
Wile E. Coyote is mute and has nobody. Yet he is undoubtedly an extravert. As logical as he is, it is his trying out of ideas that is his most valuable asset. He skimps on planning and jumps right onto the flying torpedo every time.
But it just leaves me to question, what is that actually makes an extravert? And are many ENTPs wrongly typed as INTPs?
