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.
    Beg your pardon, I thought you thought that was a trait of the introverted!

    I did therapy when I was younger. My therapist was an introvert and considered me one too. Her belief was that introverts were not so easily accepted into the world and that I would best learn to enjoy it.

    I think my grand daughter is an introvert. When she was tiny she didn't even like being hugged much. Her Mum was a bit upset but just went with it. Now she is all love. She is beautiful and genuine. She is herself...but although she is only 20months, she takes her time, she looks around, she puzzles things out and when it feels right for her she has a ball.

    She is being given the space to be herself. That I think is sometimes what the introvert does not get and that I think is what causes problems.

    Depression on the other hand is I think a different need to be alone and can happen to both introvert and extravert's.

    And it's interesting. When giving a presentation in front of a large group of colleagues, I am supremely comfortable and confident. At the same time, I am the LAST one to EVER organize a party or social event. For me to attend, I would have to be invited.

    Introverts are more predisposed to have anxiety issues. I think male introverts are especially at risk if they remain too sedentary and isolated. That's all I'm trying to say. If you're one of those guys who sits in front of a damn screen all day and never gets any exercise or social interaction, eventually, you're going to be incapable of normal socialization; you'll probably development some form of social anxiety, like I did. My basic message is, eat healthy and exercise regularly!

    My other message is this: The peer reviewed literature empirically demonstrates that testosterone will turn introverts into extroverts!!!

    You aren't really listening, are you?

    Okay, whatever you say.

    Yeah, and the fact that two unrelated ones showed the same results is reassuring. The last letter was different, but both of them had that one at a virtual tie.

    Plus I'm apparently a "mastermind", which sounds cool. I would also agree that the results seem to describe me accurately.

    I turned out to be a "Mastermind", too, but I already knew that.

    These tests are tested and retested for reliability. That's why you came out similar.

    I'd already guessed you were INTJ. You have all the hallmarks.

    What is cool, Dav, is to realize that you are normal for an INTJ. There is nothing wrong with being introverted, it is how you were made. And there are a lot of other people who are wired very similarly to you, and you can connect with them.

    I think that MBTI is good, because it helps people realize their natural tendencies, as well as our areas where we may need to work on self-improvement. We all have our strengths/weaknesses, and they are all slightly different. A lot of how we see the world is determined by who we are.

    I'm listening. I'm also sharing my opinion. Get over yourself.

    Okay, whatever you say.
    That was sarcasm, love.

    You are not discussing introversion. You are discussing psychological disorders.
