    I answered these regarding my ESE husband. Lots of times the qualities you like in someone can turn out to have a flip side. For example, number 25 and number 17. Both can be annoying to me although you've phrased them in positive ways.

    How can efficiency and self-sacrificing be annoying to you ?

    23. They don't educate children just by spanking--YES (are you implying that introverts DO??)
    Basically, most childspankers and wifebeaters are introverts, because they're mostly S-, and S- people are mostly introverts.

    Efficiency itself isn't annoying but when the person is complaining about how inefficient things are (that are out of his control, like the traffic patterns, or the way things are managed at the department of motor vehicles), it gets old after awhile. The self-sacrificing is fine up to a point. But then it's overdone. Then they say "look how much I do for everyone else!" at the point when they're all tired out. And you're left thinking "huh? why did you do all that if it makes you so exhausted?" Which leads me to #9: they do get tired after awhile.

    No. You're an introverted extratim, because -0+ is null-phisum, and null-phisum extratims are introverts. I assume you're SLE, but it'd be the case even if you were LSE.

    Pretty much like null-phisum introtims are extraverts. When I say "extravert", this includes null-phisum introtims, but excludes null-phisum extratims.

    However, even if you were an extravert, I'd get you expelled of extraverts' club.

    I know he just likes to fun us but I'm bored and decided to take him seriously anyway.

    1. They're funny. They can be. They have a more daytime tv ish sense of humor usually. Introverted humor is more darker.

    2. They help others. Yes. They're quicker to ATTEMPT to help others but it doesn't mean they're necessarily successful at it. Just because you do something doesn't mean it was a good idea. You seem to have poor .

    3. They understand difficult people. No. They really, really don't. They can be charismatic and sweet/extra loving to people who are different/misunderstood but does it mean they *understand* them? No!!! They are simply dealing with them the best way they know how.

    4. They move their asses. Yes. They biologically and energistically have a higher activity level than introverts. But they're just the light bulb that burns brightly and has to plomp on the couch when they get home. Introverts burn more dimly, but for longer. Proven fact. It's how energy is stored and released.

    5. They're able to interest others. Introverts have basic empathy for people, just like extroverts (as long as one isn't a sociopath) and can pretend they're interested even when we are not.

    6. They trust people easily. Actually I say they trust people *better* not 'easier.' Extroverts win +1 in this. Introverts usually share too much too quickly about themselves because they're hyper eager to be understood from living in a culture that doesn't understand them.

    7. They like people. So do introverts, silly! We just innately handle our energy differently. Duh.

    8. They're more sociable. Well yeah. So?

    9. They're never tired. No. It just looks that way but really people distribute their energies pretty equally if they're healthy. It depends on the diet. Assuming equal diet and both being psychologically healthy, the introvert will be the 'burns longer but dimmer' and the extrovert will be 'burns shorter but brighter.' And oh if you never get tired that's not always a sign of good health. Extroverts have a lot of back and bone problems I noticed.

    10. They aren't boring. I find many if not most extroverts boring, banal and superficial as fuck. Maybe they don't think so, but they are. Extroverts usually aren't as hypersensitive to personal criticisms as introverts, so I know this doesn't bother them, but it gets annoying dealing with ignorance.

    11. They act like they were everyone's friends. Of course, and we see right through this and are not amused. *Daria face.*

    12. They're playful. So are introverts. We're just less annoying about it?

    13. They're harmless. I think you got me here. You're right, I would say on average introverts are more dangerous. But that's because we have the most power (ironically?) and well, you have to listen to us or else.

    14. They're sweet. Okay. Sure. Not sarcasm btw. Just another 'So?'

    15. They're more able to appreciate the world. When your brain isn't programmed to look at things very deeply I'd be a happy go lucky down syndrome-esque extrovert too.

    16. They aren't picky. They secretly are. They just are more gregarious by nature and don't like to show this. They will tell an introvert as much if you get alone with 'em.

    17. They are aware of needs for efficiency. I don't know about this. Just kinda 'huh?' Efficiency in WHAT, exactly? That's so vague!

    18. They aren't stingy. Being careful/conservative with your money is about 50 times smarter in times like these.

    19. They're able to lead people without playing assholes. YMMV on this one. But the level of assholery is about equal. It's just more effective coming from an introvert because you don't expect it as much.

    20. They're easier to please. Correct. Want a cookie?

    21. They motivate others. They try to. The introvert might actually be better. Willing doesn't necessarily mean the most competent.

    22. They improve others' self-esteem. Key word: Try to. It comes off condescending sometimes. Introverts usually understand my actual moods better but BOTH TYPES equally have good empathetic abilities. Both being human beings, I would certainly hope so.

    23. They don't educate children just by spanking. ROFL. This is funny because I think it's true. My introverted dad DID spank me a lot more than my extroverted mom but it made me respect him a bit more. Oh not really. But, he didn't hit that hard so I just thought it was funny.

    24. They're empathetic and sincere. So are introverts. Just not as obvious about it.

    25. They're able to sacrifice themselves for others. I admit, they do things easier than others. But introverts will too if encouraged to do so but you're right it isn't as natural. Hmm.

    26. They have a larger range of emotional states. False. Just... no. It might look that way but -- Hell no.

    27. They're modest. GUFFAW! Yeah fucking right. The reverse is usually true IME.

    28. They're aware of others' needs and desires. Yes. You're kinda saying the same thing over and over again though and you usually amuse me but I'm gettin' kinda bored now. Redundancy FTL?

    29. They're good sellers. Well, duh. Society recommends salesclerk and the like to be extroverts.

    30. They're able to behave themselves. Extroverts don't get off on kinky shit like introverts do, I'll give you that but ... they misbehave in other ways.

    31. They aren't conservative. Being conservative is a bad thing? Whatever.

    32. They are the fucking S-H-I-T !!! No. Extroverts are uh extroverted. A few are amazing, most are cookie cutter average and a few are absolute filth. Just like introverts and 'hybridverts.'

    33. They are the fucking S-H-I-T !!! a second time, because redundancy is cool ; everything that comes from extraverts is cool. You seem to be a self-loathing introvert because I don't think extroverts talk quite so stereotypically about themselves.

    Fuckshit ! Extroverts love themselves so fuckin' much, so I'll put my own thread to the foreground again. Because extroverts like to be in the foreground.
