INTP (many years ago test result)
The only thing different in our Myers-Briggs personality type is the I-E :)

Journey, what’s the difference?
10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks.

40+ years of severe 4-days-POIS, married, raised a family, started/ran a business

INTPs-ENTPs use the same cognitive functions but in a different order.

INTJ.  No question about it. Had this test before.

I am a Subject Matter Expert at a large aerospace company. 

Quite a balancing act with this disease. 

We also need to consider that certain personalities types are more likely to use a medium like this. So the distribution of POIS in this forum is also influenced by how approach problem solving.
Simultaneous onset of CFS and POIS since Feb 1993. Married since 1989.

Helped by Immunocal (I explained how to take in previous posts).  Some relief on day one and day two.  It affects neurotransmitters.

I agree that we can't conclude only from this poll that introverts are more likely to have POIS..

BUT.. if there is a likelihood for some kind of POIS to be more likely for introverts (subgroup), maybe it's related to acetylcholine.
https://www.google.com/search?q=acetylcholine+introversion

^ those Google hits claim introverts brain is more based on acetylcholine than on dopamine.. (simplified terms..)

EDIT: Ooops, this is what kurtosis asked in the initial poll post  :D

I think this might say a lot about which personality types participate in online forums and/or try to figure out impossibly complex issues like POIS. INTJ...  ;)
