    Even though you would rather be alone, do you get energized around other people, or from being in a stimulating environment? Or do you just get tired?

    Also, do you feel a compulsive need to correct people's grammar and pronunciation, or do you let it slide?

    A mixture. If I am with stupid people and/or stupid arguments I am tired and I would prefer do something other alone. People sometimes bore me a lot.
    Otherwise if I am in a stimulating environment I like it and I am energized.
    Even if I can only be an observer or alone, I like often go out and being "distracted" by people and things. But also I pass a lot of time alone with book, movies etc...

    More often I let it slide.

    You sound like an ENTP to me. INTPs can't help but correct you, it's a compelling instinct.

    I could never fall asleep reading - all external stimuli amps me up. And I get bored around boring people, but am usually amped up after talking to someone. Unlike our little red-headed stepbrothers and sisters.

    Im not sure I understand you correctly. If your Ne is bigger than your Ti, you are an ENTP. Extraverts are people who are turned towards the outer world, Introverts are turned towards their inner world. At least, this is Jungs definition. This can be a bit abstract to type yourself, so it`s better to determine your dominant function.

    Actually, my Ne and Ti are almost level, but I am definitely an ENTP.

    What makes you an ENTP and not an INTP?

    Never happened that strangers are weird at me. Often I am polite and aloof with strangers, but when I want and I am motivated I can be a people-pleaser.

    I thought about that for a long time, but I truly fit every ENTP description I have ever read. And while I identify a lot with INTPs, the ones that know me in irl would never call me one of their own.

    I am definitely withdrawn but the more people, the more energized I get when I force myself out of the house. Also, I am someone who flits around from topic to topic and subject to subject, instead of specializing in depth like most INTPs.

    But maybe I have a distorted view. I don't know. I guess if any forum members that have met me irl happen to see this thread, they might be able to comment further? I don't know, I just feel like an ENTP.
