I Thought I was an Introvert…

The topic of introversion vs extroversion seems to be making the rounds on the internet these days. First, I read this post about it, then I stumbled on this article.

I love human psychology, I think about it all the time. I had basically come to the conclusion that I’m somewhere in between an introvert and an ambivert. I gravitate towards the end seats on the subway, I usually curl up into a ball after going to a party, and I thrive living alone. But then there are little things — like every year for my birthday I can’t decide if I want an intimate gathering or the Biggest Dance Party With All My Friends. And I’m never afraid to crack a dirty joke in front of people I’ve just met.


So I took this quiz at the end of Huffington Post’s article, and — surprise! It says I’m definitely (probably) an extrovert.

So, I have decided that I’m both. Just like I’m both Asian and Caucasian, and just like I’m both very loud and very quiet — I am both introverted and extraverted.

What are you? What do you think you are? What do other people tell you?
