"Extraverted thinking" suggests thoughts that are contemplative instead of reflective — thinking freely without self-criticism or excess fine-tuning. Thinking "outward" is synonymous to playing or having fun, but there is a risk of losing touch with yourself, therefore losing touch with simplicity.

Introverted thoughts are you, extraverted thoughts are not you.

I think the extroverted thinking causes people to believe that we have special needs because we do't socialize through extroverted feeling like most people.  And yes, it can make us think out loud.

I think ENTJs are more direct in speech but I know I definitely need to either talk it out or write it out to solve problems.  I can get only so far in my mind and then I go to someone I find reasonable, intelligent and/or wise, talk it out or write it down in my journal with a pros/cons list, diagram, whatever I need to solve it.

Oh geez, really?  I never thought of it like that before.  I guess it could come across a bit Sheldon-like.  I have to remind myself to ask people how they're doing, blah, blah, blah stuff prior to asking for what I need.  I'm just such a cut-to-the-chase type of person.  Probably makes me look like a jerk.  Something I need to consider.
