So I was wondering, what is the nature of the extrovert manner?
Jung describes in his writings the extrovert attitude, that is, the orientation of psyche. A extrovert psyche or attitude is dirrected towards reality. It sees the world as it is. It extends itself to this realtiy as an individual spends his, her energy on knowing it.
But what I want to discuss is the extrovert manner. What generates that attitude?
I see it in their orientation, management of energy.
Different people manage their energy in different ways. While some may prefer to spend their energy, be it on intellectual pursuits, or risky endeavors, they all have a thing in common. Constant drive. They are pushed by their nature to seek out new things in the world, to make, find, create, and generate them. The nature of such an individual is one of motion. An individual is energy *spending*.
By observing the nature of the individual it becomes apparent as to why this is so as that they live in the realm of reality, a world reflected by what is. They constantly explore that world as they find new frontiers to overcome. Where they see a rock, they see not only the rock itself but the whole range of possibilities of that rock, its reality. They use that reality for their purpose. They extend themselves into this reality as they become (And are) a part of it. They become the rock's possibilities, its extenuation. For them the world is simply an extenuation of themselves.
This leads to other things. They view the world as it is. And this leads to their attitude which is objective. As it were, they take the world in directly. There is no refinement of what is because that would be corrupting its pure essence. The attitude is one derived from equality between it and its surroundings.
An extrovert manner is positioning oneself in the line of this reality allowing it to engulf them. This way one reaches their equilibrium with reality, with what is.
But, if one is fully engulfed, then one crosses into something that can be described as a "flux of creation". The extrovert manner extends itself to that flux and becomes one with it in a state of almost divine transcendence which takes one to new and unexplored grounds of reality. This is the natural and best state of the extrovert manner. It may be the business man in his state of constant growth, or explorer in his expanding quest, but the main thing is the flux of creation be it the smooth, almost perfect lining up of more and more factors that make up a structure or the realization of a concept which then brings about more and more states of realization or the powerful determination that shapes and builds and grows as it goes along or the simple state of the old embracing the new or the distribution and realization of the extrovert nature itself or any other state of where we have a divergence to essence.
