I am seeing a common thread – “I am an Introvert but most people think I am an Extrovert” and I am not seeing many “Extroverts” participating. Maybe they are storming the castle walls of management! Why do so many introverts appear as extroverts (I include myself in this statement). For me it is the environment, if I am comfortable, know the people and “politics” I can be very engaging. If it is a new place, new people, I tend to be reserve – get to know the “politics” – kind of a think before speaking thing.
MBTI is a tool for understanding people – but we like to categorize people based on such tools and that is where we end up in trouble. That is why I enjoy this site so much, people actually get to voice an opinion or observation and it generates discussion and maybe wisdom at some level.
