Which one are you?

I'm an introvert- I don't like large crowds(can only deal with maybe an hour at most). Like to be outside of the circle looking in to get a feel of things at first. Normally very quiet, don't mind spending large amounts of time by myself. Only have a few friends that are true friends rather then having many so called friends .Like to spend time at home rather then going out all the time. I live back in the woods for solitude. Love spending time with the wife and dogs at home vs spending time with people most of the time. I truly enjoy quiet times, no loud noises, most of time drive without the radio on. When at home, cell phone gets turned off. Land line only.

Now, this isn't to say I'm antisocial. But, typically, people annoy me and I seek quiet for refuge. So, therefore, people either avoid me or until they get to know me. Then once understood, they know i will be there if needed. But, don't bother me with daily non sense.
In the military, I was always like this. When something needed to be done right, they came to me. Because, they knew i didn't have time to play games and once locked or focus onto something. I always seen it through and was left alone until I was done.

So, wither right or wrong. There it is. Nothing wrong being an introvert. Something about solitude that makes me thrive, versus having to get my fill being around people all the time. Living off the grid is my way of living. I would love to be able to only go into town once a month and I would be just fine with that. Sarge

Definitely an introvert. Donít have any friends...wife is my only/best friend. Canít even trust my own family anymore really...
Donít like big crowds, donít like to be in public generally. Iíd rather be busy with one of many hobbies.
I was popular in my younger days but realized quickly most people are overrated and likely just want something.

The US population is about 70% extroverted, according to the research and surveys. Based on the surveys I have completed I am extroverted but not significantly so. The degree of each of the two is the more impactful aspect of one's behavior. There is also a large distinction between rural and urban, with rural residents being much more likely to be introverted and urban dwellers more extroverted. The real issues come up when one is strongly one way or the other and not in the environment that suits their style. A lot of these issues show up in the workplace. People can live where they feel comfortable but may not always have careers or work places that suit them well.
Extroverted people tend to their image support from others and feedback from others, where as introverts tend to live by their own drum. Strong extroverts gain energy interacting with people, while strong introverts find dealing with people and especially a lot of people tiring and energy sapping.
Extroverts can and do spend a lot of time in alone type activities, but share much of what they did with many. Introverts do the same thing and don't say much about what they did.

I've always been a loner and go my own way. However, I do enjoy interaction with others and groups on my terms. I don't try to dominate or hog the limelight but when I have knowledge on a topic or feel I have something to offer to a conversation or project I freely contribute.

Case in point, the job I'm on now is a film set and I really have very little in common with the crew. As the snake wrangler on set I'm happy just doing my thing of scouring the area to remove anything found so these folks can film without worry. Yet I can hold conversations with any of them on common ground. Had a nice conversation last night with a young gal from Vicksburg. Evidently she's some sort of star and has traveled the world yet we had a nice conversation about her Mississippi roots. Maybe I should've put in a plug for Wolfdog?

Mostly an introvert. Add beer and I turn into an extrovert.

I don't talk unless I have something to say and then only if someone appears willing to listen. "Making conversion" is not for me. Most folks consider me an introvert. Those who know me well disagree. To me I'm just me.

Definitely an introvert. The best time I have is when I'm by myself doing something I love doing, with the exception of being with my wife. I absolutely enjoy that. I have no what you would call close friends. I do have casual friends. I use to give a lot of demos, but I'm not a demo sort, so I retired from it after doing about a hundred of them. I can manage folks because of my training, but I'd rather not.

I like people one on one or very small groups in moderation. My wife and kids are about the only people I care to have around me.

Introvert.

Not at all shy. Not anti-social. I can talk comfortably in front of large crowds. But I prefer a very small group of friends over a big party.

Extroverts gain energy from social situations.
Introverts expend energy in social situations.

My wife leaves a party fired up, excited, ready for more. I leave a party exhausted from all the interaction - even though I probably had a good time.
