I'm an introvert. Tried doing the extravert thing once. It wasn't my thing.

    Certainly an introvert.

    I do enjoy spending time with others, but I find it draining overall.

    I live by myself and spend the majority of my free time alone...I wouldn't have it any other way :D

    Definitely an introvert as well. For a while I didn't like the fact that I was an introvert because the people I looked up to were all extroverts, but especially over the last two years I've learned about the strengths that my introversion gives me and how to best use them, so definitely more at peace with it now.

    Yeah I 100% get this. Last year when I was in Sydney and living with 7 other people I used to disappear on hikes on my own pretty much every weekend so I could be alone and recharge. My housemates called it 'Josh time' and that's pretty much what it was but it helped so much. Would recommend!

      Introvert. I can talk plenty online, but I can never really figure out what to say irl and I generally get nervous talking to strangers or people who I haven't known very long.

        I'm an introvert. I don't talk too much and I'm very careful with my words. I love socializing but I love being alone so I can think on my plans. People had mistaken me as a shy person but I'm not.

          I'm definitely an introvert. I mostly keep to myself and whatnot. I can handle being around people but only for short times and not multiple days in a row, unless it's my bestfriend or talking to my boyfriend, I can talk to him for hours without feeling "worn out" or needing time to myself.

            Undoubtedly Introverted.

            But I do have a social side, it's just conducted with one person at a time.

            Very much an introvert as I enjoy to have my own peace rather than hang out with many people at once. To be honest I find spending time with more than three people exhausting and I need the rest of the day to regain my energy afterwards.

            Introvert. I have no problem with hanging out with people and talking to them, but too many people for too long definitely leaves me stressed out and needing to get away.

              Interesting how often introversion and social awkwardness/anxiety get conflated, and you have to explain to people that no, being an introvert doesn't mean I'm shy or that I don't like hanging out with you. I love being around people, it's why I do what I do - but it's also incredibly draining, and I usually have to take time afterwards to recharge my batteries. I find it helps (probably due to mild autism oops) to gamify my social interactions. It's like Amnesia, except instead of monsters, it's other people that drain my sanity bar. I don't dislike it, but if my bar empties I crash hard and it becomes really difficult to be sociable and enthusiastic. Just takes a while in my own company to refill it! And for special events like family holidays, Christmas parties etc, I can 'overcharge' the bar by spending extra time plugged into a charging station. XD

              I'm 50/50 at the start. I'll either try and be outgoing as possible and wear myself out mentally and emotionally, or I'll just sit back and wait to see what happens. After the first couple of interactions with people though I'm about 80% introvert.

                  I suggest that everyone here goes and takes the Myers-Briggs test.
                  I wanna be the very best, like no-one ever was.
                  Who cares if GO is popular? Pokemon I still love.
                  I will travel across the town, to buy a manga from the shop.

                  Mainly introverted. I'm only extroverted when I have to be. which is usually in workplace situations.

                    Ambivert I guess? I feel like I've switched from side to side throughout my life, I guess if I did pick I'd be more on the extroverted side. Socialising and meeting new people from all walks of life is something I live for, but at the same time I also value my alone time dearly too.

                      In my real life, i'm as mute as Red in Pokemon games. And that's
                      no exaggeration at all.

                      Ambivert, which I figure is both, because I really am either one depending on the day. Some days I'm really extroverted and don't stop talking. Other days I get irritated easily, or just feel really quiet, and I don't talk much - even at work.

                        I am most definitely an introvert, I like things to be quiet and peaceful and I keep to myself.

                        Social engagement is also extremely difficult for me both on and offline so that plays a part too.

                          I usually receive ENFJ or ENFP in the 16 personality test so I suppose extroverted it is! :P
