    Default Is it possible to be a social INTx?

    Only a very few people are 100% introverted imo so i was wondering if it is possible to be a social INTJ/INTP.

    Yes, most of us are asocial.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    I'm with Macguffin, define social.

    I'd say INT people are quite social creatures but in a different way than what is perceived as social norm.

    Sure it's possible, but such actions will drain an introvert.

    In the enneagram, an so-dom would be more communicative despite their introverted preference.

    For example I am an so-dom INFP.

    Do you know your enneagram type and instinctual preference?

    I'm afraid cognitive introversion and sociability is an equation that doesn't add up, so why won't you just grow a beard and go live the reast of your life as a hermit in the hills?

    The way you put it, that sounds like the most social thing to do. I'm not falling for it!
