Try taking a minute to think through what you are saying.

A world filled with solitary intellectuals? That is bullshit. If everyone was an introvert there would be little to no socializing and the human race would die in a few generations due to lack fo breeding. Not to mention there wouldn't be anyone to do menial labor tasks because they are all "too smart for it"



our better use of intelligence would led us to create robots that would help us to do the works...

human race will not die after a few generation, it is human nature to have sex, thus it does not mean that introvert never have sex... also, would you rather live in an overpopulated earth like now or live in an earth that would have tons of space?.... it is better to breed less than to breed more...



man, robots? you're suggesting that this world be filled with robots and introverts per se?!
aren't you just too full of yourself? sicko.

if you do not know what introverts are... well... we are humans like yourselves... we are the minority of the population yet the MAJORITY of the intelligent people... we prefer to be alone and often have a hard time to socialize with others...



btw i am a INTJ.... if you dont know what that is, well... google it...


I have a question... [and eh, sorry for my ignorance.. but..] is it possible to be both an introvert and an extrovert..? o.O

I am a true intorvert. People think I am aloof and unsociable. Yet, they're spiteful when I better them. They angry when I can give talks so fuckin well. They hate it how I seem to know the answers for everything. They hate it how I dont seem to be worried or stressed by anything at all. Bastards. That's all I will say.

Hell is other people at breakfast!

So true!

I think a better way of describing introverts is as people who think more than they speak. Having no friends because you're shy, can't mix with others or just because you're an asshole is a different matter completely.

Edit: People should check if their introvertedness isn't just them being a little crazy...

hmm, what's with the bickering in this thread??

I'm an introvert myself. Most of my close friends are extroverts and I learn a lot from them. They push me to socialise (which is a good thing)
I can be chatty, but after that I tend to get really exhausted (mentally), need to be alone for hours to 'recharge'.

Lots of people misunderstood me as being arrogant -which I'm not- simply becuz I'm quiet. That kinda suckz. I do agree that extroverts need to be much less judgmental about introverts. Just becuz we dont like small talks and whatever, it doesnt mean we're a loner.

Anyway, peace <3

IMO, I don't think you can.

Introverts can *act* like an extroverts, but extroverts act like an introverts? Nah.

I don't think you can put everyone in such clear cut boxes, not everyone is a hardcore introvert or extrovert.

eh,,, i see... but, why can't an extrovert act like an introvert...? i mean, what if a person was more extrovert-ish than he/she really is, but he/she was also an introvert but was not aware he/she actually is one... in that situation, would it make him/her more of an introvert? [if i made no sense, please tell me]

I didn't mean that way -sorry for the misunderstanding.
What I meant is, yes, some introverts can act as if he/she is a social butterfly at certain times (party, social function, etc). but these people will need some time alone afterward.

Extroverts, on the hand, would feel mentally exhausted if they were to be left alone for hours -they can, but they prefer not to. They need to be constantly connected or communicate with other people.

I hope that clears everything.

P.S. It would be great if both worlds can learn from each other.

First of all, the passage appears to be greatly biased to introverts and it's difficult to really determine the benefits and downside of introverts. It appears that the passage has a noticeable rhetoric of trying to convince readers that "Introverts > Extroverts"... and to be honest, that's absurd.

If I were to follow by this passage, I would consider myself an introvert. I get tired easily when around people, I don't realy like large parties and I prefer doing a lot of things myself. With this said, I disagree with a lot of what the author of the passage has written. Not once have I considered introverts to be more "intelligent" than extroverts in any shape or form.


Hardly. I suppose this common misconception has to do with our being more intelligent, more reflective, more independent, more level-headed, more refined, and more sensitive than extroverts.

This screams arrogance and hypocrisy... and I'd rather not be represented by someone who does not see arrogance or do not understand humility and modesty. Does it make sense to say "Arrogant? Hardly. I"m just smarter than you, more reflective, more level-headed than you are."

O yes... chew on that for a while and I hope you have a revelation on how stupid the author of that article is.


The worst of it is that extroverts have no idea of the torment they put us through. Sometimes, as we gasp for air amid the fog of their 98-percent-content-free talk, we wonder if extroverts even bother to listen to themselves. Still, we endure stoically, because the etiquette books—written, no doubt, by extroverts—regard declining to banter as rude and gaps in conversation as awkward. We can only dream that someday, when our condition is more widely understood, when perhaps an Introverts' Rights movement has blossomed and borne fruit, it will not be impolite to say "I'm an introvert. You are a wonderful person and I like you. But now please shush."

As a so called "introvert", I still frequently enjoy the presence of some company around me although not as much as compared to the extroverts. When a friend cares for me, no matter how much they may "annoy" me, an introvert, I still consider their love universal to both introverts and extroverts. In fact, I don't really consider it an annoyance, but rather a friendly nag.



Second, when you see an introvert lost in thought, don't say "What's the matter?" or "Are you all right?"

Third, don't say anything else, either.

Yeah... to have this kind of perspective of yourself, it's quite rude and annoying on the introvert's part.

If you honestly think you are more "intelligent" that you can't differentiate an act of friendship/kindness from other people as an annoyance, I wouldn't consider you as "Smart"... ever. You're a sniveling brat that needs to look at the world from a better perspective than what you have.


This article you found is a piece of shit. It's unfortunate that I have to bump this post back to the top with this post, but I figure this post is something this thread needs.

EDIT:
James, the OP, you are a little brat. Stop talking.

You post the article which states "Are we Arrogant? Hardly; etc." yet you go on with your stupid mouth about


extermination of extroverts are none but my own personal accord.... for i believe that majority of the extroverts are too much like flies... and since we exterminate flies, why not exterminate extroverts.... common sense, is it not?


TBH, You're not even an introvert. No where near close.

Judging from the pictures I found in your profile, your characteristics does not fit to that of an introvert. An introvert is someone who prefers alone-time over social energy. Judging from the amount of hair wax you have stacked up (http://www.crunchyroll.com/showphoto?id=12938300#50) on your desk and the mount of self portrait pictures you have of your dyed/highlighted hair, I'd confidently say you seek attention... and a lot of it. How can you even say you're an introvert or an INTJ?

I'd say you're a psuedo-introvert.

that's one confusing Q ^^;, but neway, I'll try to answer ya.

"what if a person was more extrovert-ish than he/she really is, but he/she was also an introvert but was not aware he/she actually is one... " >>>>>Some people are more extroverted than other extroverts and same goes for the introverted.

From all extroverted I've met, I can say that most of them won't stand being by themselves for hours (well, except when watching dramas/movies/whatever, maybe ;P).

here's a *really* good website to clear things up. long, but very good:
