Philosophy of Minimalism - "Grand Designs" Trade Secrets - Channel 4

I love this series of programmes - it's about people who decide to build their own unique homes from scratch. It's fascinating. There is now an added on series called Grand Designs Trade Secrets which covers the programme shown that evening plus other information. This is a quote from last night's programme - which I thought was fairly true -
"Minimalists are more likely to be introverted than extraverted. An extravert needs a lot of stimulation. External stimulation - colour, objects, people, noise. They need that to actually function. An introvert has a very active internal world - so the last thing they need is any other form of stimulation, and so from their perspective, the less is actually better"
