[This hits the nail on the head]
> And although I still think myself as primarily self pres, it could be because I am independent/loner/self pres, that I end up being very extraverted and social on the other end.
I love this - it explains a lot. My very extraverted *appearing* way of handling myself socially is very much a self-protection thing. Keep people lauging, keep them charmed, etc, and they won't ever get to know the real you, or try to ask for too much of you. Its a way of keeping people at a distance.
I'm a self-pres infp 4w5, and i have this ennea-freind who just INSISTS ALL the TIME that I am a 6. It used to upset me when I was less confident, now it just annoys me. ANyway, it turns out this guy really mis-interprets most of what I say, anyway, and thus sees me as a different person from what I really am. Its annoying
