    Default How introverted can a extrovert be?

    I am an introvert, however, I am very confident with people. I boldly ingore what they think about me, I command people easily, I take center stage with no difficulty. Strangley, when I read my mirror discription (the ENFj) I see myself in it with greater clairity than the IEI (INFp) -

    I seem to hit people with a lot of Ti, could that be my dual seeking? Am I an ENFj???

    Could my Se be a mobilizing function?

    But I swear I am an introvert. How introverted can an extrovert be in Socionics?

    Introverts with a certain level of maturity would have developed their creative and extroverted function where it is able to effectively relate to the world.

    You may identify more with EIE because of your Fe development. Either you are Fe-IEI, an IEI who's past the age of 20 (or around there and fairly grown up), or you're just a rather socialized introvert due to upbringing, culture, and friends. The choices you make make you, not the type you are.

    I think you're equating social introversion with socionic introversion. Search for "introversion" for old threads, there should be a lot

    Ive been highly "introverted" lately -- probably the most in a decade -- but it'll likely subside by next March/April. Ive also been the happiest Ive been in eons. I think its sometimes good for extroverts to just take a mental break. However, Im still highly prone to find external stimuli on a daily basis. Otherwise, I feel like Im suffocating.

    I hope that helps answer a niche to your question. Im not sure anyone can answer it fully.

    Well I sure ain't no beta, but your question seems pretty universal.

    Basically what octopuslove said, social introversion/extroversion is a different entity from socionics intro/extro. I'd classify myself as a social introvert since being around lots of people at once grows tiring for me, but socionically my overall external energy levels are fairly higher than those of socionics introverts. Likewise, I've known several socionics introverts who are much more socially inclined than me or several other extroverts I know.

    Extroversion/introversion pertains to orientation of one's energy, either to discrete blocks of information (extroverted IEs = object IEs, see here for an infinitesimally more informative description of what I mean) or consolidations of many data at once (introverted IEs = field IEs, see link again). Extroverts are, on average, more naturally attuned to these discrete, objectified blocks and thus devote more energy to the pursual of these objects. Introverts, conversely, habitually concern themselves with the aforementioned consolidations of info they're attuned to seeing, so there isn't as much of an active seeking of information as there is an envelopment within it, meaning higher amounts of external stimulation are not as desired or even necessary. Both sides of this dichotomy can coexist with either social gregariousness or social introversion.

    Very introverted. Especially if you are Fi/Ti subtype.

    "How introverted can an introverted be in Socionics?"

    As introverted as they damn well please.

    As far as socionics is concerned introversion/extroversion has to do with your leading function, not your behavior

    My opinion outside of socionics, is that both aspects exist in every personality, in a cycle which maintains a dynamic equilibrium
