    I came back home last night from a home field football game against a rival school.

    After a 10-year winning streak, we got pounded and lost, 43-0. Nothing special to be said there, other than the fact that I met a new friend .

    Not what I meant, but OK.

    Anyway, your main a point is that just to consistently to engage one's social skills. I think somehow I should just be content with the response I get rather than trying to orchestrate a response.

    Thanks for the comments so far, I appreciate it and am open to more.

    you got it. Build a habit. Jump in there.

    That's all, now I gotta finish my damn homework. I had 4 friends come by unexpectedly, and had to treat them to an hour or two on my trampoline....

    I dont think just "jumping in" works that well. Lots of weird situations when the odd hippie from the corner who never talks just pops in during a convo. But the thing thats made me more social lately, besides unnatural use of alcohol, has been training Ne.

    Every INTP knows how to do it, on the occasion when we feel secure were basically ENTP's. We dont need "training" on how to use Ne, but kind of when to use it. I realized that when this ENTJ made sarcastic remarks on everything my teacher said on a psychology class, while i sat comfortably hazed in my Ti. I was feeding my Ti by thinking of something completely useless, while the ENTJ got his satisfaction by the outside stimuli.

    Every INTP has social connections, okay not that sure, but the point. Every INTP knows the strange satisfaction you get from using Ne and making people giggle, its like heroine injected to your frontal lobe. BUT we just dont use Ne as often as ENTP's, so in my opinion the first step is trying to force yourself out of that comfortable hellish gorge of Ti, and SEEK for situations which make using Ne possible, and the biggest point is getting that satisfaction out of it. Makes you want to have more. See whats around, everything can be turned into something beautifully irrelevant and silly when using Ne. Just socializing doesnt make you an E, consciously increasing the usage of the second function makes you an E, I's can be social too, right?

    And my experiences with my adventure into the tempting world of ENTP'ness? I've got kicked in the head by an ESTJ woman who apparently really appreciated my sense of humour, and people have started calling me insensitive, dunno why. I also have a flu, not sure how that's connected but i remain suspicious.

    That's pretty much how it worked for me. I switched schools and decided to try and be social. it worked.

    But how plastic is the question. One shouldn't need to toy around with the brain circuits that much. Given that we don't know much about the brain, shouldn't we be more cautious in taking these chemical interventions?

'Tis much better to do a little with certainty, & leave the rest for others that come after you, than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of any thing.”—Statement from unpublished notes for the Preface to the Opticks (1704) by Newton.

    What do you think about me? And for the darker side, here.

    i dont have time to read much now, but introverts are introverted because of much stimuli, so they get more anxious when there is alot stimuli coming from the outer world also. extroverts have low stimuli coming from inside, so they seeks stimuli from outside world to keep them from being under stimulated.
