    I don't know. The blog entry makes me a little hopeful--things like one on one communication just isn't very cost effective, and you don't really see long trains of introverts to hope word of mouth spreads reliably.

    Though if someone came here under the guise of being an INTP, invested a couple months of posts, and started a product blog...

    Hm. I wonder if I just figured out a way to get some money for posting here.

    True. That blog article was useful (probably worth more discussion than the one I posted), but it was also linked to the previous article and contained the text "article tools sponsored by Lincoln" so no doubt it was just a marketing effort to introverts. :D

    so.. only introverts like quiet machinery??? I would think extroverts would kill to have a vacuum cleaner that doesn't drown out their voice.

    I'd have to agree with some other commenter that I's would see through the lies, and also if it were marketed to us we'd probably relegate it to the ignore list as it would probably seen as something hip, trendy, mainstream, etc. Also, I think I's generally research products on their own with out any help from marketing and are less likely to buy on impulse or get easily wanned to buy something.

    You don't market to introverts. They figure out for themselves what they want, when they need it, and go and get it of their own accord. It's a lot harder to persuade an introvert that they want something they're quite happy without. On what basis can you persuade them that they need it? Everyone else has one? Pfeh!

    In my experience I have seen many levels of introvert and extrovert. Let me share some of my own.

    * Invite me to a party -- I'd rather have a root canal

    * Have me speak about something I'm passionate about in front of a group of people -- I shine.

    * Put me in a "casual" networking group -- root canal please.

    * Put me in a "structured" networking group where I can ask for what I need and help others at the same time -- I'm in heaven.
