There are two mating strategies. One is low-to-moderate IQ, promiscuous, impulsive, "liberal," extroverted, narcissistic (self-centered), not altruistic, lots of kids, doesn't take very good care of them. This is generally called "r." The second is called "K" and it is high IQ, monogamous, not impulsive, "conservative," introverted, fewer kids, takes good care of them.
It isn't that one person (or group) is all either "r" or all "K". A person or group can show traits of both, but almost always they tilt far to one or the other.
I am an introvert. On the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) I am listed as an INTJ, which means Introverted Intuitive Thinking Judging. It's not as if I'm all introverted: I almost always score 60% introverted, 40% extroverted. But I understand what I am quite well.
I am high-IQ, ultimately monogamous, self-controlled (not impulsive except in certain circumstances), "conservative," imaginative, focused, altruistic, and both rational and intuitive.
I (and other introverts) are very sympathetic towards the Four Cardinal virtues: Prudence (able to judge between actions with regard to appropriate actions at a given time), Justice (the perpetual and constant will of rendering to each one his right), Temperance or Restraint (practicing self-control, abstention, and moderation; tempering the appetite), Fortitude or Courage.
For all practical purposes, the Four Cardinal Virtues are introvert virtues. This means the Seven Deadly Sins (wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony) are extrovert flaws.
Introvert values are also about excellence in life, what the Greeks called arete. That excellence is how introverts achieve well-being/flourishing, or eudamonia. Extroverts can achieve this, but only by following the values discovered by introverts.
Two examples of famous introverts are Thomas Jefferson and Adam Smith, both of whom in many ways founded America. Smith used to go for long walks at night so he could think things through, and once got so absorbed in thought he fell into a ditch. Jefferson was the the same way, although he took long horse rides in the countryside. This is so they could think and imagine while alone, since introverts are recharged by solitude, while extroverts can't stand it because they can't bear to be alone, which essentially means they can't tolerate themselves...which is why they are the Herd/Sheep/Borg.
Examples of infamous extroverts were Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, and both Bushes....moderate-IQ politicians and utter destroyers. Introverts saw straight through those extrovert destroyers (as they see through all of them) but low-IQ extroverts make excuses for their behavior and worship them as saviors, even though they were everything but.
Low-IQ extroverts are the types who end up in prison, because they are stupid, impulsive and narcissistic. They constitute the most murder-loving of soldiers. This is because they don't think, in addition to lacking empathy. As Frederick the Great said, "If my soldiers were to begin to think, not one would remain in the ranks."
Myself, I believe there is far more wrong with extroverts than introverts. This, from a review of The Introvert Advantage: "If the science behind the book is correct, it turns out that Introverts are people who are over-sensitive to Dopamine, so too much external stimulation overdoses and exhausts them. Conversely, Extroverts can’t get enough Dopamine, and they require Adrenaline for their brains to create it. Extroverts also have a shorter pathway and less blood-flow to the brain. The messages of an Extrovert’s nervous system mostly bypass the Broca’s area in the frontal lobe, which is where a large portion of contemplation takes place."
And this, too:
"A world without Introverts would be a world with few scientists, musicians, artists, poets, filmmakers, doctors, mathematicians, writers, and philosophers." It's not totally incorrect to say introverts are the producers and extroverts are the parasites.
Since Pareto's 80/20 Law holds here, with 80% of the world being extrovert and 20% introvert, this means democracy will not work and is inherently self-destructive. It also means anarcho-capitalism won't work, either, because the 80% of the population that is extroverts will in varying degrees cast off introvert virtues and ruin their lives. It's a lot easier to sink than fly, and when extroverts sink they try to take introverts with them.
I'll give two examples of extroverts I know. One, a man, is moderate-high IQ. He became a podiatrist, so he did have some discipline. He has no children because of birth control, and is extroverted, impulsive and promiscuous, with a count of about 100 women, which he achieved through lies and manipulation. He became a drug addict. He shows gluttony and lack of self-control. He's also a coward.
He told me he ruined his life and if he had to do it over again, he'd be a high-school coach.
To the more deluded in the Manosphere, this loser is an "Alpha." In reality the older description is more accurate: he's a cad.
Second, the woman. She got an M.S., so she has some intelligence and discipline. She never married and has no children. She's impulsive, promiscuous, liberal and narcissistic, with a count of probably 30 men. She blames all her problems on men and is envious and gluttonous. She is also a coward.
Now we come to feminism. Feminism is "r": promiscuous, impulsive, moderate IQ, "liberal," envious, gluttonous, greedy, hostile. Feminists (and liberals in general) show far more of the Seven Deadly Sins than the Four Cardinal Virtues. Feminism considers children low investment, e.g. abortion, birth-control, giving them to poorly-paid workers or child-care centers. It is inherently self-destructive.
There is a certain kind of introvert man who is fleeing these snarky butthurt feminists who blame all their problems on men. I've seen many of these men. They are introverted, high IQ, disciplined, with many intellectual interests. They are independent.
These men, through the years, have found women are no longer worth the trouble for long-term relationships, because many of them are extroverted, narcissistic, impulsive, promiscuous, "liberal" feminists who blame all their problems on men, and are hostile. They have nothing to offer a man, even though they don't know it, and wouldn't believe it if told it. After all, it's men with the problem, right?
These are the women who wonder where all the "good" men are, which only shows they can't tell a good one even if he's standing next to her. These women usually describe themselves as "successful, gorgeous, amazing, wonderful" without understanding no man believes a woman says about herself or her friends.
Does any of this sound familiar?
In other words, the introverted men who advance society through invention and discovery are barely marrying and reproducing (as far as I'm concerned, extroverts do little if nothing because they are destroyers incapable of thought or imagination). Many of these introverted men are no longer valued and receive little appreciation and gratitude from modern women. So why should these men get married and have children, when the minuses far outweigh the benefits?
These intelligent, monogamous, self-controlled ,conservative/libertarian, imaginative, focused, altruistic, rational, intuitive men have almost nothing in common with moderate IQ, promiscuous, impulsive, "liberal," extroverted, narcissistic (self-centered), non-altruistic women. In a sentence, women severely damaged by feminism.
I've pointed out both feminism and democracy are inherently self-destructive. This is because the are both "feminine." Socialism, a more extreme version of democracy, is strictly "female." It's based on the female belief we should all be forced to share (which works until we run out of other people's money, which has happened already).
Society is in the process of collapsing because it has enshrined "feminine" virtues, i.e. an "r" reproductive strategy. Once it collapses, the introverts and their values will take over again, unless we want another Dark Ages.
Unfortunately women in general are less intelligent than men (there are twice as many men with IQs above 120 than women). Women are also more relationship-oriented and more extroverted. This means they will be influenced more than men by the dominant ideology. That is, feminism. Which will destroy their lives, and they will wonder why.
So what will they do? Blame their problems on men. Jung made the comment that women's greatest flaw was thinking she was always right. The other side of that coin is blaming your problems on other people. In this case, men, because if you think you are always, then the other person must be always wrong, so logically, they are the cause of your problems. Ergo, to women, men are always the cause of their problems.
Let's put it this way: without introvert leadership, discoveries and inventions, extroverts are damned.
