Hey all. I've been dating an extrovert for about 6 months now and have finally realized how much we rub each other the wrong way and how much work it is to stay together. We're both looking for validation, love and to share happiness, but we go about it such different ways. Our personality differences make the relationship blow up every week or so.
The basic difference between: an intro recharges their batteries by being along; an extro recharges by being with people. After a long day at work, an intro would want to read quietly, meditate or listen to music, while an extro would want to talk at length about the day.
So I'm wondering, and willing to bet, that a lot of the fruity peeps here are introverts. I feel it takes a lot of alone time away from society to develop the consciousness needed to advance to a 80-10-10 diet. Introverts have this built into their personality. It seems that an extrovert would feel weird going against the norm.
Let's hear from the group: do you consider yourself an introvert or extrovert?
I am INFJ (67-12-12-44) too.
(I'm not single but joined this group as this topic is of interest to me and it wouldn't let me post anything unless I joined. I hope it's ok. If not, moderators, please let me know how to leave this group. Thanks.)
I am INFJ too.
'Judgement' here stands for something a bit different than what I believe you are referring to :)
That's what Wikipedia says:
"J – Judgment preferred to perception: INFJs tend to plan their activities and make decisions early. They derive a sense of control through predictability."
Ah, ok, misunderstood you then, sorry :)
hey ! Really interesting topic! Well I am both! I do love to chat however I love my own company and spend alot of time on my own creating stuff (songs, guitars practice etc) i do miss seeing people but I dont miss seeing the sort of person you get at the local pub/bar. My mum always says i should go out more, my answer is why? I dont drink smoke or do drugs now getting my head round 80/10/10, Its going to be very rare I find like minded people in those joints. I think its about getting a balance and feeling comfortable with being on your own, most other "normal" people would just run to the nearest pub before spending time alone
