    is extroversion slightly more taxing now as compared to before mainly cause you're more aware of things?

    greater awareness leading to the need to know more because the more one learns the more one knows how lil one knows?
    Yes.


    also, if you're a balanced ISFJ, and more sure that you're basically an introvert, then you're closer to knowing what an INTP might be like. Just something I've become slightly more aware of given maturity and awareness of the complimentary side of oneself.. maybe just maybe.
    Ooooooh, how interesting. You shouldn't have told me that. Now I'm gonna pretend like I'm an INTP whenever I feel like it now. Sweet!

    Also, this thread's title itself seems to indicate that its inspiration is based in sensory perception and feelings based judgment (both relatively speaking, are concrete and immediately known). Happiness is accompanied by sadness whereas the momentary feeling of joy isn't the long lasting presence of happiness.. its an in the moment exhilarating feeling. Knowing what happiness truly is, is a function of maturity and is definitely not what joy seems to be.
    ^That was over my head. Can you explain that in a different way please?

Now, I'm not so up-down because I've learned a few things and no longer go off like a roman candle as much.
    When I was a child I was shy and very quiet, and then when I got into my teens, I came out of my shyness quite a bit and talked a lot, but now I find myself back to being quiet and shy like how I felt when I was a kid again.

    Agree with Athenian. Maybe you're just settling into your natural state of "introversion." I hate using MBTI lingo.

    I've been told for so long that introversion is bad though so this is why I'm uncomfortable with it.

    Introversion by itself isn't bad at all. In some ways, it's great. There are things it might be associated with that are...unhealthy...like social anxiety, insecurity, low self-esteem, etc. But introversion itself, imo, can foster humbleness, contemplation, depth, and self-awareness. Celebrate that shit!

    And to extend on that, we can also say that extraversion and extraverts often suck for a lot of reasons, too. So don't be afraid of your natural introversion, Hmm. It's no worse than any of the other traits.

    Sadly, any scholar of Seinfeld can tell you that this means we are doomed to have a brief, torrid affair after which will will not be able to stomach the sight of each other. It's a shame, really.
