    You haven't produced any evidence either and it isn't plausible to assume that an introvert or extravert would post more or less because of the type of medium the communication is taking place on.

    Based on what people report as their type, post count here seems to relate more to overall interest in the board and the people here more than anything else.

    It's not my job to produce evidence. I didn't argue that your hypothesis was wrong. I said, and have been saying all along, that they're both plausible. If you can show that it's implausible, go for it.

    Okay. I've met Jeffster IRL, and in no way does he act like an extravert. ISFP "feels" right to me, too. On the boards, he seems like sort of a Homer Simpson type--the life of the party, clowning but throwing in wise statements now and then that catch you by surprise. IRL, he probably has that side to him, but introvert-style, I'm guessing you have to know him well to get to see it. I actually felt like Jeffster acted very much like scanty and I did--observing, processing, conversing more as he felt comfortable. I don't think any of us felt a need to play host, or to keep the conversation going nonstop to avoid awkward silence. And in case you're wondering, I don't remember him hitting on us, either.

    I don't think high post count means anything. Introverts that feel comfortable can talk your ear off. This is an online forum of people that share a lot of interests, and Jeffster's found a great niche. People like him, and they think he's funny. I think he probably exaggerates the ESFP stereotype in print because it's a schtick that works. Why not?

    I think if you watch him interact with his son and read his blog when he talks about his parenting style, he seems much more P than J. He provides guidance, but he gives his son the freedom to express himself, rather than providing a stricter, "the right way" to do it. No way is Jeffster an SJ.

    Jeffster has never once even come off as an online ESFJ. SP all the way.

    Sorry, that was a typo. Will edit.

    Yeah. Truth is I'm really pretty much the same personality online or offline. The difference I think is in the speed of getting to know people. I have a natural reserve in person that kinda filters that "Homer Simpson" you were talking about some, but once I get to a comfort level with someone in person, then I feel more free to let myself "be me" more I guess? It doesn't mean I'm fake before then, it really is like a gate that has to be opened up or something. I mean, the way I act with my co-workers and my friends that I've known awhile, I have the same kinda quick reactions to things that I do online, it's just better in person because I don't have to type it, I can just say stuff which comes much more natural to me.

    And the circumstances factor in too. When Morgan is with me, a lot of me is focused on him, so at a restaurant, it's hard for me to completely relax because I'm still in Dad mode, haha.

    I hope any of this is making sense because I am dead tired, the only reason I'm still up is Morgan is sick and throwing up, so I'm staying up for his sake.

    I think he probably exaggerates the ESFP stereotype in print because it's a schtick that works.
    Oh, I was gonna say, it really isn't a "shtick" or a stereotype though, I mean, people tend to have their perceptions of me regardless of whether they're accurate or not, but I'm not trying to do any kind of act, I really am just being myself.

    I have also met the Jeffster in real life, and he is definitely NOT an extrovert. He is VERY laid back and doesn't bounce off the walls nearly as much in person as he does online.
    Jeffster is an ISFP.

    Jeffster's type = AWesoME.

    Does anything else matter?

    Gotcha. I can see that. I didn't mean anything negative by the "schtick" comment, either, just couldn't think of a better way to say it. (<< been wanting to try out that new smilie)

    Hope Morgan's feeling better!
