Extroversion, Introversion & Ambiversion
 
Which are you, introvert, extravert, ambivert?

I'm a lifelong introvert trying to become more ambiverted in various ways. I can be, in some respects, surprizingly outgoing. But I remain basically shy-ish, and it makes it hard for me to meet new people and get to know them. I thought it might help to talk about this stuff here, as I need to gain perspective.

I'm an extrovert, but I can be shy in group situations where I don't understand the social dynamic or feel actively not a part of the group.

I think I am an Ambivert. I can be extrememly social but don't actively seek out social settings. I'm a loner by nature but seem to be able to blend in almost any social setting.

oh goody more labels. I am an extroverted introvert. I mean that with the utmost truth too :)

I am very much on the line. I find my most perfect rejuvination when I have a group of people around me all doing their own thing but just being together. My job fulfills that to a large extent. I'm lucky that way.

I feel extroverted and introverted in different ways. I think of myself as fairly shy, and I'm not really comfortable being thrown into social situations where I don't know anyone and meeting people on my own. But I do like going out and being around other people often as long as I'm with at least one person I already know, and once I've been introduced to someone as a friend of a friend or as part of a group I'm involved with, I'm plenty talkative and friendly.

I'm definitely extroverted in the sense that I prefer to recharge and get energy and/or process things I'm dealing with by spending time with other people I'm close to and having conversations with them rather than by spending time thinking or relaxing alone.

I read that and asked myself "Do I like to touch other people more, touch myself, or like to touch others and myself at the same time?"

<ahem>

We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread.

I am mostly an introvert in that I like to stay at home , but there are times that I just need to get out and be with people. Being bipolar but medicated make me the official introverted extrovert! hehehe
