This is an intriguing perspective. I’m familiar with Carl Jung and his work/ writings.

I do disagree with the idea of labeling oneself and then conditioning ourselves to live by those terms as if we’re not allowing ourselves to be free.

I am very much so the “textbook definition” of introvert and I truly thrive from this lifestyle. To suggest otherwise is forcing me out of my comfort zone.

Yes, stepping out of your comfort zone unlocks and entirely new world but if it’s hindering, is it a positive?

As far as the insane asylum quote there is nothing unhealthy about being a true introvert or extrovert. In order to be insane or unhealthy it must be destructive.
