Introvert

I've been doing some serious research on the differences between introverts and extroverts (and by serious I mean I wikied it and did one google search), and I have been fascinated by my findings. This investigation was sparked by a conversation with my siblings at a recent family reunion (my siblings are mostly introverts). What is most interesting to me is that introverts aren't necessarily shy or bad at social interaction (common misconception), they just tend to feel drained by social situations while extroverts are recharged by them. Most people are a combination of introvert and extrovert. I have always felt a little anti-social (especially in the extrovert-dominate world of BYU), but I've realized that I'm just an introvert and value time alone. Very deep, I know. Anyway, I found this introvert test, I'm curious where you are on the spectrum. Take the test here.

I am fascinated by this. I scored 19, so apparently I am right on the border of true introversion.

Your labels for this post made me laugh.

And I scored 26/29. Although some of the ones I said were false weren't necessarily false.

Like 20: I prefer to be introduced rather than having to introduce others." I'd rather not meet people at all.

Hmm... maybe I'm a 27. How do I have any friends?

I got a 21. I think some days I score closer to 29 though, that's for sure.
