    Default Extrovert males especially pick up artists are way more happier than introvert males

    I'm an INTJ an introvert and if you Google best personality type a lot of people will say INTJ is best. I don't feel this way, I wish I was extroverted as that would mean I'm socially confident and not shy. I have a friend who is a pick up artist. He picks up any girl he wants and goes for things. He is an extrovert. I wish I could do this but I don't have the skills. OK maybe it's different for female INTJ's compared to male INTJ's. Maybe female INTJ's are better than male INTJ's. And for males it's better to be an extrovert.

    Here are some articles that show extroverts are happier than introverts

    The term 'pick up artist' isn't exactly well received on this forum, just a word of caution.

    Am I socially confident? Yes. Does that make me a PUA? No.

    You can be an introvert and socially confident/not shy and vice versa for extroverts. Being an introvert/extrovert doesn't magically make you smarter/dumber or better/worse socially (as some of the other stereotypes are that extroverts are not as intelligent as introverts).

    Also, being a PUA doesn't make you a social badass, in fact PUAs are usually extremely insecure and not very competent socially, using textbook manipulative methods to trick people into dating you or whatever doesn't make you socially competent.

    They are successful. Which is what counts.

    That is true, they are successful at what they do, I can't argue with that, however that success only drowns them deeper into their own insecurities and unhealthiness. The more successful they are the more they succumb to their unhealthy behavior and world view which only makes it harder for them to recover and become truly confident in themselves and capable of achieving their goals without using underhanded methods(that aren't even theirs mind you).

    The practice of people to whom that term refers is not well received by anyone with a modicum of self-respect. Sadly that leaves plenty of prey for PUAs.

    In my my recent relationships, friends and romantic, with the introverted version of myself--yes I'm happier, and I'm a moody SOB. This is primarily because as an extrovert I easily forget how hard everything is, which makes life easier, ironically. Once could say I'm blissfully oblivious in comparison.

    The only female that I have cursory knowledge of, who fell for a PUA, was a self-admitted masochist with bipolar and BPD. The only reason why she fell for him is because she had special needs with sex in that she liked to be smacked around without a safety word (she enjoyed the thrill that he might not stop) and he was the only guy who enjoyed smacking her around.

    Anyone can be successful, if you define success the right way.
