    You obviously have never met me. I'm a introvert and I can keep a convo going and make you feel uncomfortable while I do it. Lmao

    Introverts can be the most talkative people when they are interested in the topic at hand. Especially INFJ’s who a lot of people mistaken for extroverts because of this.

    You haven’t been friends with a true introvert if you haven’t been able to have a long and deep conversation. Or you may have but your idea of “deep” is still very surface level and uninteresting to them - So they don’t fully commit to it.

    Maybe, I dunno. But my experience tells me otherwise.

    You probably don't give introverts the space to open up

    Heh. That's not my experience at all. Most, if not all(?), of my friends are introverts and we only have deep conversations.

    I’m a bit confused. If you’re an introvert yourself, wouldn’t you know personally firsthand that despite introverts being reserved and serious, there is also a fun and deep aspect to them once they have a chance to open up?

    I agree with @Wyote, sounds like you aren’t giving introverts the space to do that.

    Introverts take time to open up, some more than others.

    I'm an ENTP. Anyway, yes you're exactly right. They need space to open up, A LOT of space. As an Ne dom, I get bored of this easily. Thanks for clarifying that this is a me thing, not an introvert thing.

    Ah, that makes more sense that you are extroverted. I recommend changing your MBTI status, just to avoid any future confusion regarding any similar topics to this.

    But yes, introverts don't usually open up easily and takes a bit of time---though it doesn't apply to all of them, but most of time being reserved and private is expected with an introvert.
