    So do I. I just don't feel absurdly uncomfortable around other people anymore.

    But do you prefer to be around people, or prefer to be alone?

    I don't feel absurdly uncomfortable around other people either.

    Possibly the article does indicate different needs and sometimes they may not be easily met.

My thinking-feeling level has been consistent at about 60 something, thinking, and my judging-perceiving level has fluctuated throughout my life. It's pretty interesting to note where you've been and where you are and how that has affected your past and current choices.

    I'd also imagine that more conservatives would match with my results than liberals.
    Ohhhh...that's called N now for intuitive.

    I never said you did! I'm talking about my own experiences as a young man. I think young men ought to eat right and exercise regularly; get some sun and interact with people every now and then. I think introverted males who become too isolated and sedentary will suffer from bad anxiety and possibly depression. The reason I single out introverted males is because of the ones I know, they are the most likely to play a damn video game for hours on end. That stuff ain't healthy.

You are making a connection that doesn't exist. You seem to be making the case that introversion is unhealthy. There is no basis for that assertion.
    My guy runs 3 miles a day, lifts weight, and is extremely fit. He's still a hardcore introvert, and always has been.

    I don't run nearly as often as I should, spend way too much time online (and indoors at work), and I'm still mostly extroverted.

    Took the linked to test:

    Your Type is
    INTJ
    Introverted Intuitive Thinking Judging
    Strength of the preferences %
    67 38 50 1

    You are:

    * distinctively expressed introvert
    * moderately expressed intuitive personality
    * moderately expressed thinking personality
    * slightly expressed judging personality
    Also took another test, liked this one slightly better:
    INTP - "Architect". Greatest precision in thought and language. Can readily discern contradictions and inconsistencies. The world exists primarily to be understood. 3.3% of total population.


    Introverted (I) 67.65% Extroverted (E) 32.35%
    Intuitive (N) 64.71% Sensing (S) 35.29%
    Thinking (T) 58.33% Feeling (F) 41.67%
    Perceiving (P) 50% Judging (J) 50%
    Same as many people here, though apparantly also the least common in the general population.

    Oh here's another one: "You trust reason rather than feelings"
    Um, EVERYONE trusts feelings more than reason. Everyone thinks that they trust reason more than feelings.

    And my favorite: "I tend to make decisions based on logic and facts"
    Right, because lots of people are really going to say that they don't use facts and logic in their decisions.

    I'm starting to think that this whole MBTI thing is bull.
    I am perfectly comfortable with gray areas (the unknown). I trust my feelings more than reason. I operate primarily from my gut on my job. I make decisions based upon what I'm feeling at the moment.

    That isn't to say that I can't use logic and facts (I do it all the time, and enjoy it), but my default mode is more emotional than logical.

    The "right" answer, to someone else, would be potentially quite different (and is). Pick the one that seems the most obviously correct about you. They are sometimes similar, so pick the one that seems the most accurate.

    There is a difference between insecurity and introversion. I sometimes feel absurdly uncomfortable around other people, as if I'm watching myself perform. But, I crave the attention of other people (shockers). I'm the one who tends to organize parties and create small social groups. I have a LARGE social circle, even if I sometimes play the hermit.

    My boyfriend craves silence and getting away from people. If socializing were up to him, there would be no parties. He has a tiny social circle because he's really uninterested in 99.3% of human beings. I spend a large portion of my time talking and socializing. He spends a large portion of his time inside his head, thinking about things. Silence comforts him. Silence drives me completely bonkers.

    After dating him for 2 years, though, I've learned to be completely comfortable with being quiet for up to 2 hours. I can't just sit and think, I have to have something external to occupy my mind (forum, anyone?). If I'm alone, I read or post on the forum or watch movies. If he's alone, half the time, he is thinking and doing what appears to be nothing at all.

    I need entertainment and stimulation. He entertains himself.

    I think the tests were pretty accurate in describing you, at least in how you come across, here.
