Can someone who's an introvert become an extrovert?

  1. Do you guys think that we are born introverted/extroverted? Or is it more the process of our lives "nature and nurture" that defines which type we are? What if you grew up differently? Would you still be one or the other? I don't remember being so introverted when I was a kid. I personally think that we are all born extroverted and learn to be introverted as we grow. So if it is learned, couldn't it be unlearned?

    You do know how it works right? The I says you have Introverted Sensing as your dominant function, you have extraverted feeling as second. Those are most present. You have introverted thinking as achilles heel type which makes you vulnerable to people who do well and abuse this, and you have extraverted intution as your inferior function.

    This site explains what it all says for example Introverted sensing:
    As for ISTJs, the dominant Si is oriented toward the world of forms, essences, generics. Again, "for both of the IS_J types, the sense of propriety comes from the clear definition of these internal forms. ... A 'proper' chair has four legs," etc. (Jung saw IS as something of an oxymoron: sensing, which is a perceiving function, focused inward and thus away from that which is perceived (the "object"). In this light, he described this sensing as something removed from reality, full of archetypes/mythical figures/hobgoblins; sensing of one's own set of forms.)

    Maybe you can figure out how you can overcome your social anxiety
     
  3. I didn't understand your post. :confused: I know why I have acute social anxiety. For years I have protected myself by becoming a social recluse. If I try to socialise now, I am very fearful and walk away or run away to isolation in my flat on my own. :(
