- INFJ all day
I'm sorry, but I don't like these types of books. They treat introversion as if it's a disease that needs to be conquered (my opinion). There is *nothing* wrong with being an introvert.
I think being able to handle the "outside world" is important. I would not have any friends if I didn't adjust myself. I think it is a personal choice though.
I think solongotgon was looking for constructive thoughts. We all agree that it's annoying for others to consider us broken or lacking. But I can admit there's times that I need to be able to use my extroverted functions more, and I don't think there's anything wrong with learning that.Thoughts on this self help article:
I used to over-apologize. And I still find it hard to tell people (irl) when I'm displeased with them.Funny I had to learn how to tell somone I was unhappy with their actions. It took even longer to tell them the same thing in more exact colorful language. I still have problems, but I am getting much better. I am not apologizing as much any more.
But MBTI introversion/extroversion is very different from the usual definitions of introvert/extrovert.
