It seems like he should, seeing as it's his. I don't want to know what alias he uses, I'm just curious if he is a semi-regular poster here.

He probably finds arguing with ISTJs frustrating - and their propensity for drowning their victims in facts and details and demanding the same in return.

Oh, wait, this is about OSC, not me. Um, I dunno.

Hatrack forums are more about his books, with questions that only he could answer.

As far as I recall INTJs were also ridiculously well represented here.

Considering that introverts represent about a quarter of the population you must be creeped out a lot. The introvert-extrovert dimension is probably the most misunderstood. It's not about how outgoing people are but rather how energized they get around others.

My brother and sister are both extremely outgoing. My sister is an extrovert and after a long day of work, she'd prefer to unwind by spending a night out on the town, socializing with others. My brother is an introvert and while he spends all day interacting with others and drawing them in, at the end of the day he needs alone time (watching movies with his wife). But is someone only knew my siblings from work they would probably never guess that they are polar opposites when it comes to extraversion. The only hint might be that my sister is more likely to invite people to parties after work.

TomD...you were kidding right? I mean, how many extroverts could there really be who have posted 8000+ times in an online forum, and moderate other forums, and work with computers?

Not kidding. I'm ENFP. And introverts really do freak me out, although I'm good enough at dealing with it that I manage to be happily married to one. [Smile]

Does that mean I freak everyone out?
Yes?

I would like to announce that I am an XNXX, My E and I, and F and T, and P and J are equal, or you could say I am practically pure intuition. I guess it makes for better games when you can hit both ways.

TomD, Loverofjoy is right -- introversion is often misunderstood. It's more about how people gain and lose energy than about people's desire to be or not be around others.

What is it about "introverts" that you find creepy?

Gruevy, watch the test you take. Some have some pretty bad testing language that poses queries in such a way that they don't really ask what they're seeking.

For instance: Which would you rather be like?

I often would prefer to be what I am not. The question should read, "Which best describes you?"

I've found this in a number of places and have asked folks who know, and the question is really trying to get at what you are, not what you want to be.

Also, take the test a couple different times. You can get different results -- it's most accurate when you start to see a pattern.

Seriously? The fact that they find being around other people to be exhausting. This is completely and totally contrary to my experience, and is a very alien thought to me.

I've continually come up INTJ everytime I've taken that test. I have noticed that my 'I' is gradually creeping down towards 50%.

I am a lot like Kent. While I tend to be a bit more I than E it's not by much. I'm a fairly strong N no matter where I take the test. I am probably FP more than TJ but again, not by much.

In an intro to psychology course in college my professor did an interesting demonstration. We were talking about personality tests and he put up a transparency of a list of words (I think about 4 words per each line). He asked us to pick which set of words best fit us. Then he put another transparency on top. It was all the zodiac symbols. He asked how many chose their correct sign. It was a huge number (mine included). He said that this "test" in his class often had as high or higher reliability than some of the best personality tests out there. His point was that personality tests may be somewhat useful but have to be taken with a grain of salt.

Well, alien and creepy can be synonymous but they don't have to be.

It's not so much that being around others exhausts me as it is I need to be alone to recharge. However, I do know some folks who are more introverted than I am who do find social interaction to be draining. But I really think that's rare -- the extreme introvert. To succeed in school and in most careers, introverts have to learn to cope with social situations. As a teacher, I had to be very extroverted at work; some days I'd go home and just sit alone in my room for about an hour before I wanted to get up and do anything. But it's not like I didn't want to go to work the next day.

Isn't that common? Doesn't the human experience require introverted and extroverted stages?
