    I don't think I'm disliked because I am an introvert...those who like me, like me....I think I am disliked because I sometimes (bluntly) speak my mind....those who dislike me really dislike me because they are the ones I have offended.

    I have in the past felt pressure to socialise. I often saw myself as a freak because I just didn't want to. Took me years to be comfortable in my own skin.
    I wasn't even aware that we weren't accepted.

    Female introverts don't fit in with stereotypical beliefs of how a woman should act. Obviously they are disliked.

    well yes but as much as women? i don't really think so honestly. men tend to play the persecutors more then women. yeah there are stereotypes about how men should act too, but women don't necessarily try to force men to follow them.

    on a more on topic note. i like introverted women because they can carry a decent meaningful conversation whereas extraverted women seem to just want to talk about whatever and are harder to form meaningful discussions with in person.

    I think men and women both have different kinds of expectations.

    For men, the biggest expectation is to not show emotions. I'd say it's even less accepted for men to express emotions than it is for women to be introverted because, as I stated earlier, it's at least okay for women to be the "demure" kind of shy. Men, though, are often taught to suppress all emotion except the kind of aggression usually exhibited in sports.

    I'm beginning to get a complex...first it's the T for thinking...who'd have thunk people don't like women who did that?
    Then it's the NT because we live in our heads?
    INTJ in general because we are robots apparently?
    Now the I by itself?

    I thought about this concept for a while and I had to dig deep....we are unanimous (all the little letters of INTJ) Our feelings are hurt....

    Whatever, all those in majority who don't like us....I like me and have a few friends who concur.....the rest can bite my robot ass.

    Social networking is often not only more "expected" of women but also more "important" to women's survival, on the primal level, in the sense that human intelligence ("information"/gossip as information) helps you make life-enabling choices. Which car salesman is trustable, what's a good house in the neighborhood to buy, that guy has a bad rep so be careful, that company has a high turnover, etc. I find socialising exhausts me, and I can only do a limited amount of it before I start feeling like some kind of a shell. I have close friends and prefer quality over quantity in terms of relationships, is all. But the information value of social networking is worth making whatever limited effort you can make...("you" meaning "a given introvert woman").

    Above all, IMO, introverted women should not make the mistake of faking emotions or forcing them though - that comes off even worse than disinterest I think.

    Male introverts also don't fit the stereotypical believes of how a man should act.

    That's too stereotypical. Extroverted women aren't capable of deep conversations? That's just not true. Also not for extroverted men by the way.
