Hey - this has always been something I've felt personally, but, I wonder if it has any socionics value. I know it is mBTI term in the title, but bear with me:
Basically, it feels like I, personally, have to initiate all contacts and all meetings, outside of what is forced upon me. I am always the one saying hello to people, calling people, writing to people, contacting people to set up meetings or make sure they are well informed.
In my youth when I was more MBTI "introverted", it was still this way, but I felt I had no real draw or interest in other people at the time. Yet basically it was always this same "feeling", or what have you. People seldom "approach" me. Even now, when I am more and more involved in everything, I almost always make the first move on any matter. Do you think that is related to being an ST, or ESTx?
I am curious because I am trying to figure out why and how this is different for other people. It may just not be a socionics thing, I don't know.
Do you have anything to relate to this?
