    Default How do I figure out whether I am İntroverted or Extraverted?

    Hey everybody!

    I have done all the tests I could find for finding out my type. I know that I am -NTP but I really can't figure out whether I am introverted or extraverted. I sometimes get İntp and sometimes Entp from the tests.
    I can say that my Ne is really good and I get energy from bein with other people but it's really hard for me to speak with someone for the first time. I can't make friends easily and I'm scared that I'll have to have a one-by-one conversation with someone. But at the same time debating is my favorite thing-when I'm with people I know. My friends all generally extraverts as well.
    I'd call myself an extravert if i didn't such hard time making new friends or talking to someone new.
    I'll be really happy if someone helps me

    It's more likely that you're an ENTP as they are more mentally flexible and are more prone to variance in testing.

    The question is, do you define? If the answer is a high percentage for yes then perhaps you buck the trend and are an INTP.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    @Theuniquezebra - Step back for a moment and compare yourself to everyone you have ever interacted with. Think about how someone else would describe you. How are your energy levels most of the time? If you have fairly higher energy levels compared to the average person, you are most likely extraverted. If you have fairly lower energy levels compared to the average person, you are most likely introverted. Note that this does not apply if you have a chronic illness or depression that would affect this.

    Figure out your focus- is it external or internal- that's the difference.

    An NTP will have aspects of both External possibilities and a subjective logical framework (How things work).

    ENTP prefers the external possibilities over the framework
    INTP prefers the framework over the possibilities.

    If you were feeling drained and needed to recover, which would you prefer?
    • Doing something you enjoy with people that you like. You can choose the activity and the people.
    • Doing something you enjoy by yourself. You can choose the activity.

    You sound like an extrovert to me. You might just have anxiety. I think anxious extroverts might come off as introverts, or think they are introverts, because of the anxiety.
    Yet I know, if I stepped aside
    Released the controls, you would open my eyes
    That somehow, all of this mess
    Is just my attempt to know the worth of my life

    ENs often appear and feel less 'extraverted' than your ESs, too, which is what many people compare to when we talk about extraversion. ENTPs still need some downtime to recover. If you were an INTP I suspect there wouldn't be a question - they are generally very introverted.
