    Default introvert or extrovert?

    If you had to choose one or the other with no "other" or "maybe" or "I don't know" allowed, would you describe yourself as more introverted, or extroverted?

    More introverted.

    I don't particularly like a lot of alone time, but I do like a lot of side by side time - quiet company.

    If I have to be 'on', like yesterday, running a co-op meeting, or at an event, I'm pretty much wrecked for the next day.

    And I would definitely never go to a party to recharge my batteries

    Recharging for me means a book and a bed. Retreat.

    Introverted. Being with people, especially strangers, is draining on my mind, and I tend to need lots of time to chill after being with people, my immediate family being the only exception.

    I find entertaining guests exhausting. I hate house guests. I loathe parties. I love quiet time at home. Yep. Introvert.

    I'm an outgoing introvert. I really like people and groups... but I also have to hide from them if I'm around them too much.

    Yeah, we have friends who keep inviting us to go camping with a group of other homeschoolers. It is my idea of hell...nowhere to hide from being sociable once the first two hours are over...

    Yep, I love to talk to people...about once a week. I recharge best alone...usually in a bath with a good book. Hence the reason I'm usually scattered and stressed.

    I once took a Myers-Briggs test that concluded I was 95% introvert. I think it was wrong. I'm at least 97-99% introverted. The plus side is I can fake being a gregarious extrovert for 1.5 hours at work (tutoring or running a workshop), but I pay for it afterward.

    I was an extrovert when I was a kid but somewhere between high school and the military I did a 180, and now I hate being around a lot of people. This (online) is the closest thing to a group that I ever like to get.

    I wonder if online is how we introverts get our chatty on in general. I like you lot. You don't exhaust me mentally. Okay, well, sometimes you do. But I mean, I get my chattiness taken care of here. I relate here. And then I go off and feel connected to humanity without the need to decontaminate myself (like after a real-life social encounter).
