Introvert or Extrovert? - February 1st 2015, 12:22 AM

What are you?

REMEMBER, introversion and extroversion isn't a label for people who are shy or people who are extremely loud.

They are simply titles for where your energy goes to!

Do you get your energy from being around people, and does being alone either bore you sometimes or drain you? If so, you're probably extroverted.

Do you get your energy from being alone, with your own thoughts and feelings? And does being with people drain your energy and make you feel exhausted? If so, you're most likely an introvert.

If you share both of the feelings above, you might be ambiverted. (though i think a lot of people would choose ambiversion if they're unsure. if you feel as if you're an ambivert, please take the quiz I posted below, just to be sure!)


If you're completely unsure of which category you fall in, feel free to take this quiz and then submit the answer you got, if you feel like it fits you!
http://lonerwolf.com/introvert-or-extrovert-test/

There are plenty of quiet / reserved extroverts and talkative / outgoing introverts. Again, the terms aren't as much of a label for how you act around people as much as where your energy goes when around people. c:

I used to think I was a total introvert but over the past year I decided I'm an ambivert. I took the test just in case, and shows I'm indeed I'm an ambivert. Though for me it's definitely a situational/mood/phase swing. I switch between all three. For real.

Ambivert too! I can be outgoing around some people(particularly my friends/family/people close to me) but I'm mostly an introvert around people I don't know very well.

Complete introvert personally, but professionally extrovert. Which can lead to all sorts of problems

If I take the quiz, I bet they'll say Ambivert (I'm quickly answering before going out haha). However, I am more of an Introvert. My personality allows me to fake extroversion pretty well, and I am very friendly/talkative. But I'm introverted. Hahaha.

I was a point away from being an ambivert. But, like Traci, I can fake extroversion and I'm truly an introvert.

I took that quiz thinking I was an introvert, but I was three points into being an ambivert so I proved myself wrong I suppose.

I took the quiz thinking I was introverted, but it turns out I am an ambivert. I wanted to be more of an ambivert in life anyway, so I'm happy with the result

Took the quiz after voting. I voted Ambivert, but the test says extrovert with shades of ambivert.

Extroverted Ambivert, apparently. (Try saying that with a mouthful of popcorn ) Sounds about right - I was probably more introvert as a child, but having found my feet a bit more (and not caring quite so much about what people might think about me) I've become more of an extrovert. A fairly quiet one at times, but I'm happy around people and all that entails so I'd definitely agree with ambivert.

Ambivert, according to the test. However, people who don't know me would probably label me as an introvert.

I remember my Psychology teacher asking my class this question and I said introvert, she was taken aback and said she wouldn't have thought I would have called myself that. I used to be a lot quieter/shy than what I am now. I'd probably say ambivert.

I scored 49 on the test so I'm almost dead in the middle

Re: Introvert or Extrovert? - February 1st 2015, 06:58 PM

I'm still the only extrovert up there. xD
I took the quiz again though, and I got one point above Ambivert.
So I think I'm definitely an Extroverted Ambivert.

I think it's just that I've been alone for so long in my life (as a child I was home-schooled and had only 1-3 close friends.) so I guess now that I'm finally out there with people, I can change the way things were. Now I can't stand being alone for too long. And the weekends are absolute horror.

I'm definitely a more laid back, calm, quiet extrovert. That's probably where the ambiversion comes from.
But I get my energy from being with other people, no doubt about it.

I took the test thinking I was an Introvert but I got 24. So, I guess I'm an introverted ambivert. I can however fake extroversion in some situations like volunteering or gatherings. I guess it all depends on the situation and who I'm with.

Took it, and I got right dab in the middle ambivert. 51 actually. Which, like I said before, I do not agree with. I'm an introvert, but I'm a good public speaker and great at "faking" extroversion. I lead meetings, I can teach, I can talk about condoms easily in chat. You know, I can be very friendly. But I prefer being alone, I don't have many friends, I'm an introvert. Meep.

I am an ambivert. I didn't take that quiz, but I have taken the Myers-Briggs test on multiple occasions, and I vacillate between an INFJ and an ENFJ (I being introvert, E being extrovert). It always says I am "slightly" one or the other, so I take it to mean it depends on my mood when I take the test.

I scored a 37, falling in as an Introvert with Ambivert functions, which is totally weird to me (I thought I would score as a full-out introvert. I think I was very generous in scoring myself with too many 2s rather than 1s ). I took the Meyers-Brigg test last year and ended up as a INTJ.
