Here is a problem with my introversion and intelligence:
@ daveb, I’m serious, why should you separate one from the other? Why can’t one be easy going and deep thinking?
@ daveb, what is your definition of an introvert?
actually Tine, I don’t think he’s wrong. I think that finding balance between the two and avoiding the extremes is important, and suggested Jay experiment with being different than he described himself. as I see it, this matches with James’ idea that one can be a charismatic introvert but you are probably right about the wording being confusing.
James: I didn’t mean to imply that there are any impossible combinations. mix and match those four words from my post any way you like. I’ve known deep-thinking extroverts and introverts who were social butterflies. change amounts to turning up the volume on the aspects that aren’t being expressed, different for each of us.
A: It depends on the introvert.
sounds good man
you think too much about yourself IMO
@ Time Why is that a bad thing? What else should we be thinking about?
@ Manimal Still waiting to hear why its a problem. I’m very curious to hear your thoughts on this
I found feel more reassured now that I read this forum. I don’t know if the subject was delved into completely, and I feel like we could converse for a few more pages but we’ll need more input. I have another question I’ll post on a different thread.
Now that we have about 5,000 more members I’m going to post this to bring the conversation back to life.
I think introversion is detrimental to intelligence because you never put your ideas out there to have them be bettered by the competition of other ideas.
I think that my own personal sense of introversion comes from a sense of perfectionism. I want to build a worldview that I completely understand. But that isn’t the way of building a good worldview; nothing can be static.
If introversion comes from not wanting to be proven wrong (and I think that much of it does) it usually only serves to help you harbor delusions.
Of course sometimes being delusional can get a lot done… definitely a mixed bag. I just think it’s good if you are inspired by others rather than shut down by them.
