    Eh, if you look at actual cases, that doesn't hold true. Introverts are just as active online if not moreso as/than extroverts. It reveals our true thoughts, potentially, but the interface is what distorts personality. Just as heart said, this isn't draining, unlike real life social activity.

    Third, I am typing him based on his personality on the forum, rather than his personality in real life, which I again have no access to.
    That's the same for everyone here. Many people here claiming to be introverts have way higher post counts than extroverts. Social anxiety didn't even come into my equation. I was relating it to how draining a social activity feels based introversion not anxiety.

    Irrelevent questions, but:
    i) Have you ever been annoyed at other ways to spell Jeffrey, thinking that there Can Only Be One way to spell it?

    ii) Do old Jersey cattle in from New Jersey feel an urge to moove?

    Default Is the Jeffster an Extrovert?

    You're welcome.

It would seem to me that an extrovert would desire more actual in-person contact rather than words on a computer screen.

    It doesn't EQUATE with high post count (and I didn't say it did) but it's an indication. I'm not saying I have proof that Jeffster is extraverted (and assigning me that burden is illogical), but a high post count would be something you'd expect from an extravert. It's all the reliable evidence I have to go on. There are introverts on this site who post less, and author more concentrated posts. Those are the people I think of when I think classic introvert, not Jeffster. Not to mention, folks, I talked to him online and he wouldn't stop talking.

    Hmm..good points, Edahn.

    There are two members of this forum who have actually met me in person, scantilyclad and Tallulah. It would be interesting to get their input. But of course, we only met once for lunch, so I don't how much information that meeting actually provided, especially for scanty who was focused on her young son most of the time, and rightfully so.

    I've encouraged a co-worker of mine to join up here (she's an INFJ and many of the topics here are right up her alley of discussion) but so far she hasn't. She would obviously be the most qualified to analyze me as she sees me (and talks quite often to me) every weekday and the occasional weekend.

    Most of the extroverts I know say they don't "get" why I like to chat online so much.

    What are some "signs of Fe"? Just the posts about how to moderate or is there anything else you can point to?

    When I took that "cognitive processes" test, Fe actually showed up as my 4th highest function. I'm just throwing that out there as more data.

    Yes. In fact, the number of times people wrote it as "Jeffery" was part of the reason I started going by Jeff. One of my best friends growing up used to tease me by calling me "Jeff-ER-ey" just to annoy me. And it worked.

    ii) Do old Jersey cattle in from New Jersey feel an urge to moove?
    Probably. It gets pretty boring just standing in one place all the time.

    Do you have a study to back up what you've said (or anything reliable at all) or is it just something you pulled out of your ass?

    Again, it's one indication, and it lends itself more to an extraverted personality than an introverted one. Maybe "many people" do claim to be introverts, but that doesn't mean that on average, a person with a high post count:time ratio is more likely to be an introvert than an extravert.

    Can you explain more about the "Fi dom" part or are you still too busy with the pizza?

    I didn't claim it did. You were claiming that he wasn't an introvert based on his high post count. I was merely pointing out that an introvert may very well have a high post count.

    I don't think a high post count indicates anything but a high level of interests in the topics or people on this board. That's all it indicates. Someone here might have a very low post count and have a very high post count on another board somewhere, we still won't know if they are introvert or extravert.

    It's too deep for me to get into today. (My ideas and impression, I am not claiming to know that much really!) I had a headache all day yesturday and feel drained mentally today. I'll PM you sometime over the weekend.
