    Why do introverts hate extroverts so much!?

    Some introverts believe theyre superior, as I've observed, so i decided to google extroversion. On urban dictionary the definitions for "extrovert" were stuff like "Brainless drunk guys who screw everyone in sight and get laid and poor and dumb and useless and fuck everyone whos extroverted cause theyre a useless flesh blob yada yada"

    Okay first of all if you're so smart then why would you not value differences?

    Some of them need to stfu... In fact some of the extroverts I know are smarter than Einstein. Well not literally.

    But wtf annoys you about extroverts? Seriously it's really quite arrogant.

    As always, small portions of the population ruin the general opinion of the group.

    From what I read, introverts think extroverts don't like them because they're too quiet. Which is not the case, I like all people.
    If any introvert hates extroverts, it's because they are jealous. and vice versa. We can't help who we are. Some of us talk too much, and some of us don't say what we want to say. So what? No reason for hate or jealousy. We all offer different things.

    I don't hate extroverts! I dislike some extroverts, but I also dislike some introverts. I dislike the person, not the type.

    There's just some smug smirking guys and gals on the internet who may in fact be anything from INTP to ESFP and grossly disfigure what extroversion and introversion are.

    Well quotes like "In fact some of the extroverts I know are smarter than Einstein. Well not literally." well how then? if not literally? what magically? that can piss me off sometimes.

    Because in Westurn Culture, introversion is looked down upon and this angers many introverts with good reason.

    You saw a definition of extrovert on UD (truly among the most reputable of sources) written by ONE person, and you address introverts as whole with:

    I agree most Introverts DO think they are better. But it's who they are. Introverts all have their first cognitive functions introverted, which means they always rely on themselves FIRST! I like introverts but most aren't objective enough for me.

    I find the whole "Western culture" arguments unconvincing, because I've never actually seen any specific reference to this problem outside of MBTI jargon. As an introvert, I honestly don't mind our culture being more extroverted. I mean, there's nothing anyone can do about it if more people in our culture are extroverts, and also, I like having people who are willing to do more of the talking than you would ever want to. One can learn a lot just by listening to others. While others spend time socializing, I'm free to just go off an do my own thing. If introverts know how to block out distractions, I don't really see the issue.

    We've been oppressed for too long! Introverts, gather together and REVOLT!
    Or just stay alone and revolt, I guess that's okay too.

    Seriously, we are tired of the dominant Fe culture, the "feel-good" news stories, the outgoing celebrities, Facebook, the mobile phone torturing, the "group work" at school and in the office! Not all introverts don't like these things I mentioned, but they are symbolic of greater trends that we must submit to. I think Facebook is a good example: to an introvert, the whole thing often seems like an information-less vacuum, a sort of dumping place for friendly banter, a place where it is actively ENCOURAGED to toss around extroverted ideas. The whole idea of "sharing" your own activities appears to the introvert as both narcissistic and useless. Now, if Facebook wasn't so big, I wouldn't care, but now everybody expects you to be on Facebook like it is some sort of lifeline.

    I think it's apparent that extroverts have dominated western society for a long time, and although introverts are often found at the very top (many world leaders, rich men like Warren Buffet), the most recognizable/popular people are always the extroverts. Now it's all about who can speak the best, the "emotional connection," it's not about who is the smartest or who has the most integrity. That's why the Real Housewives have higher ratings than Jeopardy!, and why American's are often so far behind other nations (in work ethic and math/science, we still rule the economy) like China, who value Ti more than we do.

    End rant. That's why I think introverts are angry. I am not saying introverts are justified in their anger, I just think that this is why they are angry. Or should I say we.

    And of course we think we are better. To deny selfishness is to deny the very essence of your being. Our brains are confined to our skulls, and no matter how extroverted you are you will never escape that fact. We are all selfish because we are all our own selves.
