Are You an Introvert or Extravert?

According to Myers-Briggs personality test, we are either naturally introverted or extraverted. It doesn't necessarily mean you either prefer hanging out with other people or by yourself - rather it refers to the determination of your source of energy. Check out this chart and tell me if you are an introvert or extravert.


  • Tend to be more naturally active, expressive, social.
  • They talk more than they listen.
  • They think out loud.
  • They act and then think.
  • Are interested in many things, they have many hobbies.

I've taken the Myers-Briggs Personality Test. I'm an INFJ. (1% of people are INFJ's -- leave it to me to be one of the odd ones!) I think the test is right: I am naturally introverted. I can, however, be extraverted when I have to be, most notably at work.

nicachica, i'm with you there. all anyone can tell from reading my profile is my age, which state i live in, and my interests. that's it. i haven't told anyone my name or any other personal details about my life. if i really wanted to open, there would be so much to tell, you wouldn't believe but i'm not here to make serious, real-life friends per se. i've met some truly awesome people but i've made far too many mistakes in the past on the net that i've learned from. it's just not worth it anymore. i love the Sugar sites and the people rock but i'm just here to kick back. i used to have TONS of internet friends who knew everything about me. now i only have one and that's because i've known him for a few years and he's one of the coolest people you could ever meet, in person or online. he still doesn't know everything about me but he's a good listener and we talk about alot of non-serious, nonsensical subjects. just some good ol' fun. :)

i think everybody tends to be a balance of both depending on mood and situation.

i'm definitely an extrovert in real life and in voicing my opinion on this site (Group Therapy anyone?). however, i don't like to give too many details about myself away on this site. a lot of people like to list their daily blogs of activities and problems and that's cool and whatnot but that's just not me. i'd rather that not be on the internet, know what i mean?

I am introverted except for the concentration thing because I suck at concentrating for long periods of time.

Mostly introvert. I'm not a good listener, and I can't concentrate well.

shockingly enough, i'm an pure introvert. i only talk to people i'm close to, in real life. they're the only ones who know anyhting about me. i'm a hugely private person.

I consider myself both because if you get me one on one or something I am shy and meek. If you get me in class, I am very verbal and will speak up to be heard. I tend to go back and forth with each in different circumstances and with how I am feeling and such. It's odd.

i'm defintitely introverted. kind of frustrating because my quietness is sometimes interpreted as bitchiness or snobbiness by people who don't know me well.

I've been an introvert all my childhood, but finding that I am shifting a little more to the extraverted side as I get older...
