    Hmm... yet again the confusion of extraversion with feeling is going on here...

    Extraversion isn't about people. It's about orientation to the object/ to the outside world. There's a reason people say ENTP's are the "introverted extraverts" - we often tend not to be too interested in people, because with the T there, our E is turned towards the world of "stuff". That's why we often get on well with the ISTP, sharing an interest in "how things work" and tinkering with objects to figure them out/manipulate and adapt them to other purposes, etc. We can like and enjoy people, but it tends to be more because they're just such an easy source of external stimulation, and endlessly varied, a never-ending puzzle... not in the same way that feelers do, wanting to "connect" and suchlike.

    That being the case, it's no surprise at all that ENTP's are usually very fond of learning and absorbing information. Personally, I dread looking things up on Wiki, because I just know I'll be there for hours!

    Put it this way: when you pick up an object, examine it and look at it, are you more interested in the object and what it is and what it means to/for the world generally? Or are you more relating it to yourself, how it connects/relates to/is relevant to you personally and how it fits with or affects the ideas/opinions/knowledge you hold? The extravert orients themselves to/by the object, whilst the introvert orients the object to themselves.

    oh sorry, :p
    I am considering INTP and ENTP.
    I travel a lot, and when I am bored without anything to do or talk to, I get sick and nausea, but if I can manage to get something to read or talk with somebody, I dont
    I have difficulting getting sleep, because I think too much, about the possibilities, or imagining future scenarios, or IF questions and worries

    I love sex, sports, and honesty. Your preferences don't match up with your type; the way you think tends to do that more often. Judging from what I've seen you seem to align with a common ENTP type.

    Congratulations; leave your coat on the stand and empty your belongings into the tray while stepping forward through the gates.

    I just love to know about things, how they work, and if are useful to me.

    For example, I dont have much friends or a big social circle, mostly alone because I live in a small countryside town, but I try to be charming and nice to everybody, dressing well and having good manners, all social skills learned from books that I donwloaded, mmm, I can read peoples body gestures very well and learned a few persuading and manipulation techniques too!, Information is like power for me and a drug hehehe
    I LOVE to argue with people when theyre wrong!, and debate, often tallking too much, or putting down people by accident, but I learned to watch when people wants me to shutup
    I dont like sports nor exercising
    I think sex is overrated
    I am lazy
    I lie often
    I am messy
    When I watch TV, I often spot mistakes and plot holes, and hate when that happens; I dont know why, people just tell me that is just a TV show, but I just hate that when the plot doesnt make sense
    Is the bolded Ti vs Te? I also spot plot holes and mistakes, or rather, guess who the perp or what the twist is before it happens. My friends used to get mad at me or ask me how I knew when I guessed out loud, but I think that's Ne (and pattern recognition since plots are all formulaic)

    Introvert/Extrovert it's true, it's not about how social you are or how much you like to 'go out and party' but where you draw your energy from and what you focus on, what in the world naturally engages you and you it.

    IRL it's sometimes a subtle 'vibe' difference. I gauge typology E/I from a question of presence vs spacing out and if the person's energy is turtling/ staying protected behind a wall or if the focus/desire is outwards. If that makes sense.

    Oh wait:

    I LOVE to argue with people when theyre wrong!, and debate, often tallking too much, or putting down people by accident, but I learned to watch when people wants me to shutup
    ENTP for sure.

    Or...INTP. x 2

    check the symptoms of hypothyroidism and vitamin d deficiency and iodine deficiency, most problems are rooted in some deficiency or another.

    Sure!

    Gathering new, abstract theories. Discussing about them. Trying to fit them all into one. That's spot down NTP.

    About E vs I...

    If you decide that one on the classic "socializing, having lots of aquaintances, loving parties rather than reading,..." there wouldn't exist any ENTPs. NTPs aren't "people persons". Here's the NTP's guide to E vs I:

    Do you like to talk about theories, even if you don't understand them fully? Do you think discussing about them or trying to explain them is the best way to enhance your understanding? Or do you prefer to seek them out first and talk about them only if you fully understand them yourself?
    When do you get most of your ideas, or the best ones: when you're out or when you're alone?
    Do you tend to brag?

    This ENTP prefers the still computer room to the coffee room full of chatty teachers, exept if a fellow teacher asks her to explain what a vacuum is.
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

    That's an odd one - I actually feel sick IF I read in a car.

    Oh yeah I got this one BADLY in my childhood and teens. As I progressed through my 20's though, it changed somewhat... I guess I just had too much to do, my days were far more full and so by the time I came to bed I was just plain too exhausted, both mentally and physically, to do anything but crash out within 5 or 10 minutes of lying down.

    My problem for a long time hasn't been anything to do with not being able to sleep - it's more to do with not being able to sleep at the right times. I seem to be naturally nocturnal and, as far as I can gather, my body seems to work on a 25 hour clock...

    My suggestion for sleeping troubles would be to a) just do more, tire yourself out. And b) take a book to bed - not one that's too thought provoking, just say a nice adventure story or something like that. No philosophy, nothing depressing.

    Well, I checked my testosterone levels, they were somewhat low, but I am taking maca and zinc supplements, they seem to help a lot
    I sleep well now, I am now in my 20, and do the same thing you do, go to bed tired

    I get ideas alone (like watching tv) or talking to people, I have EUREKA! moments often

    and yes, I AM a SMARTASS, and proud of it, but I brag about things to that I dont fully understand, and try the best to convince people that I am are expert in something
    and the things I do better, I prefer to shutup and only display my awesome power and abilities in the right time, for maximum surprise
