Introversion Preference

Key words: inner world • ideas • reflection • depth

People who prefer the Myers Briggs Introversion Preference are energized and excited when they are involved with the ideas, images, memories, and reactions that are a part of their inner world. Introverts often prefer solitary activities or spending time with one or two others with whom they feel an affinity, and they often have a calming effect on those around them.

Introverts take time to reflect on ideas that explain the outer world. With their orientation to the inner world, introverts truly like the idea of something, often better than the something itself, and ideas are almost solid things for them.

People who prefer the Myers Briggs Introversion Preference may:

  • be seen as calm and “centered” or reserved
  • feel comfortable being alone and like solitary activities
  • prefer fewer, more intense relationships
  • sometimes spend too much time reflecting and not move into action quickly enough
  • sometimes forget to check with the outside world to see if their ideas really fit their experience
