    My sister is the only one I know who does. She hates talking on the phone.

    I'm voting I, and I'm pretty sure about it. It has to do with your excitement level and lack of jumpiness. You strike me as a person who is always "leaning back" who gets people to engage him on your playing field. I associate that with introversion and an ability to reflect on things quietly.

    I don't mind talking on the phone when I'm in the mood and I do the contacting but I don't like the sound of the ring.

    As for jumpiness, anyone can be neurotic and have anxiety. that's what booze and anti anxiety meds are for.

    That's interesting, hmmm.

    In other words, it's a bit of a diversion away from the things he wants to protect.

    I was thinking more like a shiny, glossy exterior that hides a pale and vulnerable interior, maybe one that needs a respirator to breathe.

    A lot of that is legal training... it completely shifts how you approach problems. I know it sounds like I'm overstating it, but I'm not. Being educated under the Socratic Method changes how you think. Learning law in law school is secondary or even tertiary.


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    Absolutely.. my legal and analytical training have led me to be more of a problem solving extravert. I tend to bounce ideas around in a public environment - flip chart and coloured pens with a couple of people. It's how I create but I'm sure it comes from being an introvert that HAS to work in a group. I usually lead, and I adopt an energised style.. I'm sure it's an alternate "face" for me.

    Right. I'd say... this is the "faces" thing. So an NT can have an SF party face. It's still kinda leaned back and relaxed, but it's fronted SF. I've had a professional MBTI assessor say I present SF (and even ESFP) in a social environment quite clearly, despite being a probable INTP. She told me she sees this a lot.. it's a learned defense mechanism mixed with a comfort-in-the-own-skin-as-we-get-older thing.
