    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Cicero, Dec 10, 2007.

    Hooray introvert team.

    I'm a sociopath, so that was kind of a no brainer...

    I'm naturally more of an introvert, but I have worked on opening myself up and reaching out more, so I can operate in both modes.

    But it doesn't really change my fundamental nature.

    I would say Both. So I cannot vote both.

    Introvert. Sometimes I wish I wasn't, but I dislike the extroverts I know so much to actually change.

    I chose introvert. When I'm not sure what I'm doing, or if I'm talking with a small group I am very shy. But if you get me in front of a crowd or talking about something I can pretend to know something about I become an extrovert.
    Makes my students annoyed. I'm fun in class but when they get me outside of class, I don't know what to say and the conversation tends to go slowly.

    Same here. I act in plays every now and then with big audiences, and I love it. I'm loud when I need to be, and love the attention of large crowds. However, for some reason, I can't function in a small or large group with general chat. I phase out. Especially if I don't know the people well. So my vote went to 'Introvert'.

    Huge introvert, I don't exhibit any traits of an extrovert whatsoever :p Incredibly shy, not at all out going, very quiet, very low self esteem. I'm the person you see hiding in the corner at a party. I find it hard meeting new people and I hate being placed in situations with people who I've never met.

    ETA: Spelling mistake...which I found hours later.

    Extrovert. But not outrageously so. I have no problem making new friends and meeting new people. I can talk to anyone about anything.

    It takes practice to get out of it. Just go out more. Meet more people. Go to parties with your friends. Get off the internet. You'll become an extrovert in no time, if you want to be.

    Not always Frost, but it usually helps.
    I've been pushing myself since university, and while I'm hardly an extrovert in common situations, I'm not as introverted.

    I would say I am a complete introvert for the most part. I am shy (whether it shows here or not) and I don't socialize well with groups of people unless I know them really well.
    Though I do try to be the opposite way around. Usually works well at parties if I am drunk or talking to people on the net. I am generally more talkative to even my closest of friends when I am online strangely enough. But face to face I am the total opposite.

    In a crowd or someplace I don't know anyone I am an extrovert.
    But one on one or two I am shy, to the point of being embarassed if I am asked a question. I have very low self esteem so if I figure I will see you again I hide.
    so I guess I am both.

    I don't think introvert/extrovert applies when you're drunk, Torana ;)

    I'm both, depends on what mood I am, mostly i'm and introvert, but I do like a large crowd when I get the chance to be a part of somthing positive.

    I'm naturally an introvert, though I make a big effort to go out and be social. I'm pretty good at it, as long as I take at least one day out of the week to stay home and be by myself. Helps me keep my sanity.

    I'm a bit of an introvert sometimes but sometimes I can be a bit of an extrovert.

    Both, but I feel like I'm more of an extrovert, because I could talk to anyone about anything, and enjoy talking to people. And I think that the fact that I don't care what anyone thinks or says about me makes me more of an extrovert too -I dont have anything to hide --why should I? :)

    (I cannot even stay mad at people for to long, because I feel like I have something important to share! :p )
