    Default Are you shy or reserved?

    I see some INTO traits in myself, but i am not shy at all, but reserved.

    To me there is a distinction. I don't fear people, but will admittedly take a back seat since I don't give a fuck and will get to know new people on my own terms.

    Besides, how the "psychologists" label this is bull. the reality is more complex. NOt all E's will be open in all situations, they may ignore some out of bias, prejudice, hate or spite, or feel tired or too ill to contribute to social scenarios. whilst reserved people may not be as visibly "wild" doesn't we don't have the same biases, prejudices and general feeling as Es do..

    Interesting reading that from an INTP. I thought most INTPs are shy, while INTJs would be, introverted as in, not shy/reserved after they get to know you. I guess I learn everyday.

    I'm not shy. I wouldn't even say I'm reserved most of the time. I'm selective, not because I don't give a fuck but but because I love observing. That said, there are days I'm more social and extroverted than my ENFJ even (and that's astounding, I know).
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
