I'm a bit skeptical about what the scores are actually measuring.

I actually don't know what to make of my score. Some of the
other numbers I saw here don't make sense to me, unless me are at
opposite ends of the e/i scale. I'm "i" (with a very big i).
My 'social' skills with people stem from a hypersensitivity
where I'm under the person's skin, i.e. I rarely miss important
elements about a person. Sometimes it's a big handicap.
