    The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator divides people into extroverts and introverts.

    Extroverts are mainly concerned with outward appearance while introverts are more concerned with the underlying reality.
    Introverts worry that crowds will judge them by their appearance and the strain of "keeping up appearances" leaves them feeling drained.
    Extroverts, on the other hand, not only aren't drained of energy but are, in fact, energized by crowds.

    It is not at all true that introverts are loners. Introverts are very sociable people.
    Introverts just don't like mindless, thoughtless, mobs of people judging them by their appearance.

    FIFY.

    Can you tell me the point in starting a number of threads with no question asked or actual point made?
    If you want a discussion then start one with a comment of your own.

    Please start taking part in discussions. What you are doing is blogging. This is not a blog site. This is a science discussion forum.

    Thanks

    Funny story, just last week I heard about a study showing that Introversion-Extroversion is actually more of a spectrum than a dichotomy. In hindsight it seems pretty obvious, but lumping people into one group or the other turns out to be a pretty inaccurate way of representing some of their predispositions. The study also suggested that by adjusting Intro-Extro to a spectrum you facilitate a third group (I forget what they called it), and actually it appears as though people that lie somewhere in the middle of the proposed spectrum tend to earn more money in sales positions than people at the extremes of the spectrum.

    Edit: A word, and also fixed the ending to more accurately represent the study I heard about.

    Trans and inter are both biological.

    But genetically... aren't they still either xx or xy? There's no other genetic combination available, is there?

    Gender identity, as I understand it, is a matter of hormonal balance and mental mapping. Which isn't biological in the sense that I infer sculptor was speaking of.

    It may not be binary like sculptor is going with. However it much more accurately reflects the biology of the human gender spectrum as pertains to the neurology and expression.

    Well, that certainly lends a considerable amount of weight to the argument that the MBTI is pseudoscience.

    eh? since when are introverts image conscious?

    and is there a point to your question? what is the intended discussion?

    sorry, but this is lulzworthy. Introverts are not shy. Introverts simply are not gregarious and like more "alonetime". this is it. it has little to do with insecurity, or being judged. An extrovert could fear being judged, and doesn't have to value oneself on appearance.
