Anonymous asked: I'm a high school student, and my very best friend (who is 8 years older than me) is an INFP. She said this to me when we were discussing and trying to understand our different cognitive functions. She said. "Introverted is how we listen, extroverted is how we speak.

Do we understand this correctly?
