Which category do you belong to? Most of my friends say im an introvert but i do not know why they call me that. For your information, an introvert is basically a person who is energized by being alone and whose energy is drained by being around people. An extrovert is a person who is being energized by being around other people. What are you? share your views and thoughts.

hi swarovski There are times that I can be an extrovert wherein im concerned more with the physical and social environment than with the self. Im outwardly expressive and active, readily engaged in some activities. I can be an introvert also, who's concerned primarily with inner thoughts and feelings. -who is reserved and quiet

I see that most of the fellow lotters he are both. I personally think there nothing bad being an introvert or an extrovert, both may be good in their own ways for different people.

Hi there swarovski87 I am actually both. Sometimes I keep myself to myself and let others take the centre stage and other times I am the life and soul of the party!

I think I'm an introvert. I can be sociable when I have to be. I prefer to be alone. In a group of people I don't know, I can be shy. Once I know you, my Leo/Irish personality will come out.

hi If i take your definition, then all of us are both intro and extrovert depending upon the people we meet. There are certain group of people who have a general negative impact on me. For them, according to your discussion you call me introvert. And is the reverse. I think an introvert person actually never opens up except in a very closed circle. Whereas an extrovert is just the opposite. In this sense, you can call me more inclined to be extrovert. I'm keen to open if the discussion or the group is good enough. Certainly it depends on the nature of people, for me, in a great extent.

It depends. I would rather spend my time at home. But I don't mind hanging out with friends. It is hard to get me to leave once I get home. So I am more of an introvert.
