I saw this on another forum site and thought it would be interesting to do here.... And also I was kind of bored.
* are interested in what is happening around them * are open and often talkative * compare their own opinions with the opinions of others * like action and initiative * easily make new friends or adapt to a new group * say what they think * are interested in new people * easily break unwanted relations
* are interested in their own thoughts and feelings * need to have own territory * often appear reserved, quiet and thoughtful * usually do not have many friends * have difficulties in making new contacts * like concentration and quiet * do not like unexpected visits and therefore do not make them * work well alone
I see myself being a bit of both. Mostly though I can be a major introvert at times.

Uninterestingly I'm a bit of both with more leanings towards introversion. I say what I think and consider and compare others opinions (at least I think I do) but I tend to prefer my own company for the most part and I dislike unexpected visits/social interactions. I don't why either because i tend to deal okay with such things.

I am an extreme introvert, however, I have learned to compensate for it overall. My last Meyers Briggs Type Indicator test, I maxed out on my introvert side. Of course, I'm not a huge fan of the accuracy and use of the tests, but they do have their value to help with overall self-awareness.

I suppose that I share qualities of both an introvert and an extrovert. According to my close friends and family, I have a tendency to be a motour-mouth. I adapt easily when placed in a new situation and generally take a great interest in what is taking place around me. I am highly opinionated and enjoy speaking my mind in front of other people. However, I do take time to warm up to certain people and enjoy periods of time where I am free to think. My mood and the situation at hand generally effects whether or not I choose to be bubbly or stay to myself.
I would say I'm an introvert. I don't like talking, and I'm usually the quiet person in the class. I think way too much, and my mind always wanders to the weirdest subjects. I don't have many friends. I only have a few very close friends, and they're the only ones I can actually talk to. I could lock myself in my room or in my basement and never talk to a living person for the rest of my life and I really wouldn't mind. (I'm exagerating a little bit, though ) The only extrovert quality that I have would be the fact that I work well with others.

I said I'm a bit of both, though, the past year or so, I've become much much much more extroverted. I've gotten to know a lot more people and make some really close friends, plus hanging out with my GF and some of her friends. I'm still somewhar introverted, though. I like having a good sum of alone time to think, be myself, listen to my music, do my thang. I sometimes prefer to be alone, and just chill on the computer and nerd it up, lol. So yeah, I think I am both, but over the past year, I lean more towards extroverted.

everyones a little bit of both. for me personally, if im your friend then i wont shut up. but if i dont know you then the only way ill talk to you is if you physically assault me, and even then i might just crawl in a corner and cry instead of talk
