Booking Through Thursday: Introvert? Extrovert?

A weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading. Hosted at Booking Through Thursday. BTT interviewed their readers for a change, and their final question was, “What question have they NOT asked at BTT that you’d love them to ask?” They got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.

Heidi had an assortment of questions to ask:

Do you consider yourself an extrovert or an introvert?

So this is an interesting question, I always thought I was a little bit of both really depends on the situation and who I'm with.  So I went and took a quiz here.  Below are the results which seem ok but we will discuss.

You Are 30% Extrovert, 70% Introvert

You are quite reserved - yes I don't really like people in my business too much unless I'm the one sharing it of course

You aren't afraid of social situations... - correct because sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do

But you very much prefer to go it alone - this is definitely not true, sure I have my moments where I can get something done faster if I am alone but I'd rather be with friends or family, especially to outings.

And why not? You're your own best friend! - its true, it's very hard for me to trust people only because I've been burned by "friends" way too many times to count.  So yeah I guess I am my own best friend and I'm ok with that.

So do I agree with the testing - yeah I guess I do.  But again it depends on the situation when I'm with my friends and family I am usually the one they look to for advice and am the leader of the pack!  I plan everything I make everything happen. Me Me Me (doesn't this sound like that last one lol). 

What about you are you an Introvert or an Extrovert?

Interesting quiz but your answers make complete sense when I think about a lot of the "book people" I meet. We all seem to enjoy intimate company over loud crowds.

I think that quizzes have shown me to be more "in" than "out," but my life behavior says otherwise.

Maybe a little bit of both.

Baing one's own best friend can most likely be a good help in times when one has to be alone. I'd like to that quiz.
