    I do think introversion and extroversion determined largely by the way the brain itself is wired, I think this independent of MBTI.




    I can't agree with this.



    Yes and if you were a Feeler, like my husband, you would feel the stress and strain of exterting a facade at work etc.



    But when introverts pretend to be extroverts, there will always be a certain level of energy expended that drains one. Unless one is not introverted.
    I've lived large parts of my life, gone to school, worked and have friends and family in 1 Latin and 1 Anglo-Saxon country, and have a whole lifetime of firsthand experience which completely proves that cultural norms affect what kind of behaviour introverts and extraverts will exhibit.

    I know many INTX's in Latin coutnries and on this forum many people would consider them ENXX's. I know Latins who are into MBTI who also know anglo saxon culture, and agree.

    If you just want to ignore that and keep starting your theory at me there is no more I can do, but I will correct you when I think you are mistyping/hastily typing someone.

    I rarely speak to people like this but it's got to the point where I don't see how else to make myself understood.

    I agree with the cultural thing. Really, it's major party this party that. Kiss on the cheek here, kiss on the cheek there sort of stuff that I'm just not really that into.

    However, around Americans here, I was recently the "man about town".

    I've been spoken to a whole lot harsher than this so don't worry about it.

    The problem is, how do you prove that?

    Why juggle? I've been experimenting with a triad (the two girls, ESTP & ENFJ, are dating each other as well) and it is going swimmingly. I'm not sure if I would ever consider seriously dating two different women without them dating each other.

    *Note - I've had a situation where there was potential with three different women at the same time, but it quickly turned into me choosing one and moving forward. I don't care much for limbo.

    This, pretty much. I've had my eye on two girls at the same time, but once another girl came along and wanted to be in an exclusive relationship, I promptly cut ties with the others. I'm "all or nothing" when it comes to emotional investment. I can't spread myself out to more than one partner like that. Kinda why emotional infidelity is impossible for me.
    Um, yeah.

    My mind is still spinning over this scenario and I'm thinking. Wow, you could have twice as many babies in half the time !! Talk about locking in the deal!

    I'm sure you have but it's not my style.

    MBTI itself is "unproven" so I don't really see that as a problem in this context.

    what I am saying is internally coherent, matches with my understanding of the dialectical interrelationship between culture and the individual, and most importantly matches with my experience and all the evidence I have seen, so therefore I am happy with it, and I am confident that if someone looks seriously into it they will reach the same conclusion as me.

    We are acting upon the idea that it is for the sake of exploration.

    Your personal experience? Anecdotal evidence?
