I relate to the INFJ more than the ENFJ, however I did some researching in psychology class and found out that I am an ambivert.
There is such a thing, and people like that display both intro-/extra-verted traits.
For example, I love going out and dancing in clubs, parties, concerts, social events with lots of interaction.
At times though I like to have my own space just so that I can realign myself, and recuperate.
ambiverts can go die.
either you stay social 24-7 or you shit up and stop talking for the rest of your life... be careful... YOU CAN NEVER CHANGE!!!!!!
ha hah a :) :D
I just realized I wrote "shit up"
which uhm... seems very unpleasant. anyway. I meant shut up. not shit up. ha haha.
Introversion in terms of MBTI means the direction of the dominant function. It's not an indicator of social skills, nor has anything to do with the need for interaction, and whether you enjoy it or not.
I know few extroverts that don't really mind people and prefer to keep their life private. I know also a handful of introverts that like to party and hang out with friends.
I can clearly see Ni as my dom function, but I like to share my ideas with other people. Actually I get quickly bored if I'm alone more than a day. Big groups of strangers makes me tired, but intense conversation in small groups and one-on-one can be quite energizing.
I think instinctual variant stackings play a role here. sp's don't need interaction as much as the other subtypes, while completely capable of it. so's like to maintain a lot of relationships at the same time and be involved in larger social community and while sx's is the most energized subtype, it likes to have an intense relationship with only selected few.
EDIT So-variant is the most extroverted subtype, but is also more likely to have an social anxiety and fear of rejection.
