Are you rather a reserved person in day to day life? Do you have a few topics that truly excite you? Do you get back to being calm very quickly?

I am definitely an introvert. I have friends but don't talk much to people I don't know. And my mother always said to deal wth things on my own and not bother people. but that is also a negative because I don't always rely on my friends for support and they don't know me at a deep level. But thankfully, I have a wonderful husband who I can talk to and share things with.

I didn't answer the other questions... I don't get mad often either. Most things roll off my back. I don't do anything to stand up for myself unless it is really important or a lie. I've found out that people are hurtful and there's not much I can do to change it except let it go and don't keep them as my friends. for the most part I am a calm, peaceful person and let go of anger easily.

Oh, yes I am. I would really love to sit by the corner and do nothing but listen to people do the chit chat. And yes there are topics that gets me work up. I like having good discussions with everyone and think that I can even take up a debate with them. However, I can only do it online since I am not very good in speaking in any actual event that requires communicating through speech. I don't think I can go back to calm though within a minute or in an hour. It would normally take me a day to get bored again...

Actually one of the correct definitions of introverted is that they work or are motivated by themselves. Extroverted people require outside stimulation to get motivated. Under that definition, I am mostly (no one person is totally one or the other) extroverted since I work better with other people feeding me ideas. Even so, I am fairly reserved, despite being, by definition extroverted...

I am an introverted person. Whenever I do talk to people (outside of the internet, and sometimes on the internet), it can get rather awkward. Sometimes I feel like I should be saying more than what I do so I say too much. Other times, I have been told that I trail off or end a thought out loud before it is finished. One day I will get it right. Outside of myLot, I do not try to make long responses. I tend to give people around three or four words. At the most, all anyone can squeeze from me is a basic sentence. As introverts are described, being around groups of people can be draining for me. I spend most of my day cooped up in my room by myself because that is where I am most comfortable.

I do not consider myself introverted at all. I have a nice sized group of friends and I tend to fit in with people well. I am not shy in the least, I have acted, sung, and danced on several stages in my life so it is obvious I don't have a problem putting myself out there. I get excited about some things, but I usually calm down quickly. I am an easy going person. I am a person that hardly ever gets mad but if you manage to actually make me mad which is hard (unless your my husband), you better look out. I don't blow up very often but when I do somebody must really deserve it.

hi lucia2 Yes I really am an introvert. I am shy and quiet, I love to read, and write stories, poems, etc. I love to spend' time reading and mylotting and also writing. I can get back to calm quickly but I also tend to get angry quickly too. I do a lot of mylotting as it involves my beloved writing.
