    Default Extroversion/Introversion question

    What's the usual quality shown that someone is extroverted/introverted or has a dominant E/I element?

    Mostly I see from definitions:

    high energy/low energy

    and I also see

    objects/fields (things observed apart from the observer/things perceived through the observer by means of feelings)

    some people say Xi is more of a system and Xe is more of a method

    or Xi is more method oriented and Xe is more goal oriented

    sure every element has its own description that we have knowledge about, but what's with the Xi or Xe, and why are people introverts or extroverts?

    so what is really the best way to define this dichotomy or the difference in elements of I/E?

    the main thing I observed between the two is

    extroverted is "applying, acting upon, changing, and controlling"
    introverted is more "perceiving, solidifying, and adjusting to"

    do any of these stick to your understanding?

    Yes. This definitely makes me introverted.

    Do you see your creative Ne having these qualities more so than the E qualities?

    1 high energy/low energy
    2 initiative taker / responder
    3 assertive / not assertive
    4 socially confident / socially insecure
    5 loud and attention seeking / soft and background

    The first two are official and very good. The rest are good indicators.

    These are ok, although I wouldn't call some SEIs, ESIs, or LSIs "low energy."

    4 socially confident / socially insecure
    5 loud and attention seeking / soft and background
    Don't think so.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    How can an extraverted function have introverted qualities?

    It's the extroverted element that I'm asking if it has introverted qualities. Ne is in fact your creative, so its a slave to Ti. So what kind of stuff, in relevance to the discussion, does it do for your Ti since you are an introvert?
