    Yes, that is me. I frequently succeed with improvisation but, when I fail, it's all melodrama. Tears and visualization of impending doom...

    If improvisation doesn't work, however, the experience is simply ruined. Once you've fallen off the board, there's nothing to be done.The moment is gone. P types in this situation are simply crushed and disappointed and feel exposed as inadequate. Indeed, when P types find themselves contending with the circumstances in which they have neither the skill or experience to count on, they die a thousand deaths, anticipating all manner of awful things that could go wrong. J types aren't like this.

    ^The chapter on extroversion is interesting too. She associates introverts as being more in touch with their needs and goals, and not at the mercy of their surroundings as much. The chapter has cut off now, so I'll just get to it in the hard copy.. but by that measure, I'm more extraverted.

    notes on previous things said... as an evil, interloping ESTP

    Fs can seem rather T like at times, a lot depends on function development and environment... just the same as Ts can seem rather F-ish at times (like my tendancy to move earth worms off the sidewalk after the rain, take spiders outside and refusal to watch the episode of Futurama with the dog ever again )... a lot of that has to do with individuals in a way... and part of that could be gender as well- Guys are EXPECTED to have a T-ish mannerism and girls are expected to be squishy and nice

    Also the introversion/extroversion thing is interesting- by normal definitions, I'm an introvert... I almost NEVER actively socialize or attend parties or anything of the sort, but I process things from the outside in, as opposed to the inside out... I don't process things from whatever's within me primarily... I look to the outside for direction in making judgements and such in a way

    On simple tests I score as a moderate introvert... on functions tests or more in depth tests I score as a severe extrovert

    I don't look towards the outside for judgements (I think that's because of your relatively low Fe right?). I'm looking for guidance, some validation, enjoyment, even inspiration...Hmm... and a nice ass true love. I need to bring all of these home and process them

    Sort of kidding.. I just find it difficult sometimes to be sure of what I want on my own. And when I do, I compare myself to others. I had a friend years back who used to try to correct me on that. I didn't know what he was so irritated about..but he was definitely an introvert. Maybe that was it.

    Anyways, I need to get that book asap. That, or just run into the woods, no people, no entertainment.. just see how well I can do with only my thoughts.
