OK, I'm an INTJ, and the I is almost an E.

I think tendencies in both directions can help technical
writers. Writing requires intense inner-directed activity,
while information gathering requires reasonable interpersonal
skills.

Writing for a specific audience is an arm's length interaction
that is both interpersonal and isolated. The writer can draw
energy from the audience's positive response -- whether
experienced directly or simply fantasized-- but doesn't have
to endure the energy drain that introverts suffer when they
must spend too much time face to face with others. ...RM
