    I don't get why anyone would be insecure about being a sensor when they're all the rave in the real world.

    "The real world" isn't all that rave.

    I see ESFJs online, which is more than I can say for ESFPs. I think the rarest type online is the ESFP, and most that are online are mis-typed (and are actually ENFP, ESTP, ESFJ, ISFP).

    I think that's a good description Skylights, although I've heard that said about extroversion, ie if your a true extrovert you are unlikely to be online but offline socialising, dating, relating, spending time with people 24/7

    So it is easier for me to accept that online has plenty to offer. Without the requirement of physical engagement.
    I am a little conflicted about it still, even when I'm enjoying reading I wonder about the marginal cost of spending my time that way.

    My ESFJ friend checked the site out. She's interested in typology but she thinks it's a little weird to be inside on the internet when she could be outside doing things.

    Yeah, I'm sure it varies from person to person, and I imagine that it's far more likely for a younger person of any type to socialize online, since with grew up with that medium. I feel like spending time on here is social contact for me, but it's way lower-key than IRL contact. Obviously it's not as fulfilling in some ways, but it's still a form of socializing. In any case, I wanted to mention my mom because I think she demonstrates a good "average" ESFJ reason for why they wouldn't be on the site as much as some other types.

    There are ESFJs here but most of them are masquerading as INFJs or some other type, because if they were the kind of an ESFJ who is happy and in touch with themselves, they'd be busy "poking" people on facebook instead of hanging here with psychology nerds and freaks. Facebook is the mecca of ESFJs - it's the extension of high school, which usually tends to be the pinnacle of life for them.

    Yes there are some exceptions, but that's pretty much how shit works.

    Yes, but this here isn't the REAL world. We're on the 'tubes. And to this day, maintaining a social circle of people on the internet whom you do not know in real life tends to hold a stigma. "INTERNET IS WHERE ALL THE ANTI SOCIALS AND PEDOPHILES HANG OUT. It's true, I heard it on TV in between watching Honey Boo Boo."

    Don't believe me? Just go to your mother and tell her you met your boyfriend on the internet. Chance are the conversation will be awkward as hell.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    Yeah, that makes sense and the generational divide is real but it is changing perhaps.

    I have met some young people who believe that social interaction and surfing the web are one and the same, I mean some of them would go for long periods of time without speaking to anyone or leaving the house, that's not really very healthy but I know how it can happen.
