    This is easily the best explanation of extravert/introvert type I’ve heard.

    And yes, the use of the word shy to describe introverts is very often unhelpful. My daughter, an INFJ, is often referred to (incorrectly) as shy; she is open and enters conversations easily but needs large amounts of self-time in order to be truly happy. Interestingly, my ESTJ son is the one who has greater difficulty entering new situations – feeling quite uncertain/insecure, though he thrives on the energy of a social group.

    The best moment of the podcast for me (an INFP) is when you explain that I-FP’s go into a flow state listening to other people, that they are ‘story seekers’ – I haven’t ever self-identified as an extravert, but have often wondered why after an evening at a party, where admittedly the good conversations have largely been one-on-one, or after a dinner party where I’ve barely spoken but there has been good, rich discussion around the table, or after a conversation with the parent/s of children I tutor, I feel energized in a similar way to when I’ve watched a movie or read a book which is story driven. This nails its it – it’s the stories that energize. It also also explains why games evenings with a group, even those I love, typically leaves me feeling kind of empty – no new story to ponder…

    Thank you for an excellent twenty minute listen.

    I always thought I was in introvert, but wasn’t sure. I love my time to be alone. After listening to this, I feel, I am what I thought I was.
