    I've been successful, at times, of really pushing myself. In the end, however, I always end up feeling completely displaced from myself, usually over some small switch in my consciousness. I get angry at the world, throw up my hands, search around me quite franticly, looking for something to grasp onto that I actually enjoy.. and end with falling into a heap on the floor.

    When I pick myself up, I realize that I'm just never going to make it happen. Why is changing myself in some other direction really that important anyway? When I'm comfortable in myself, as I am, I'm happy. My inner world is a very rich one... why shove it aside in pursuit of something more?

    I'm leaving this open ended for a reason..

    cuz everything that is human must retrograde if it does not advance.

    i dont remember who said that; definitely wasnt me

    Wow, I always wanted to be introverted, I guess the grass is always greener, cliched but true.

    Responding to the OP....

    MBTI's defintion of extrovert doesn't = the real worlds view of extrovert... You cna be extrovert within MBTI and still be massively introspective.

    IMO I think you are pushing yourself way to hard... if you are an introvert (MBTI sense), it requires you to use up more energy to engage with people in a crowd than more otheres - therfore all you will result in is nackering yourself out, and feel socially akward and possibly get frustrated with yourself/dissapointed in yourself.

    Doing what you have been doing is likely to overwhelm you. If you want to broaden your socail circles (which I suspect is the subtext), try more one to one situations... not sure if that is internet dating.

    I moved out of town a few years ago, to a really communiting town, so it's had been really difficult to meet people, so I started a book club, where actually loads of xNxx have joined... this is in part because there is a web page for our district. Another alternative is internet dating... where you can meet people - maybe going for coffee very quickly so you meet the person even if you don't want to date them.

    I'm an E so I'm probably not that useful
