    I found this article online, thought it was interesting.

    1. If a person is introverted, it does NOT mean they are shy or anti-social.
    This is probably THE biggest misconception that extroverts tend to have when it comes to introverts.
    And you canít really blame them for having that kind of misconception.
    Extroverts tend to have to drag introverts to parties, to convince them to go and sell them on attending social engagements. When introverts politely decline, extroverts automatically assume that something might be wrong so they always ask if everythingís all right and of course, everything is all right.

In a way, it looks like MBTI, but acts like the Big 5 in that each trait absolutely IS a sliding scale -- NOT an absolute -- and it certainly is possible to be right on the line. People of the same type will definitely differ from others within the type; this is a very broad classification system, but I thought it was kind of interesting.

    The Dichotomies
    Diplomatic vs. Unengaged: International relations

    Individualistic vs. Conventional: Social issues
    Militaristic vs. Passive: Military intervention ...
