    I know that I'm usually the one in a corner, sitting alone, and just watching the conversations that go on in front of me. And when I'm the center of attention, I start getting fidgety and curl up into a ball. So I'm a huge introvert. What are you?

    Introvert all the way. Unless I'm with friends, then I'm pretty loud (mostly because of friendly bickering).

    And yet, I'm taking Theatre classes...

    Introvert, introvert to the point our neighbor asked my roommate if I moved out because they hadn't seen me in over a month (I do go out, but if I see people I know I dont often say hi.)

    I actually really like it. Not enough to want to go further with it, but it's really fun, and it feels like a big group of friends (unless of course you're in Theatre 1, which is mostly full of newbie freshman).

    Introvert but like Weavile, I'm loud and happy around my friends. That said I do require time to recharge after that.

    I have always been introverted for a large portion of my life, though how much that has manifested throughout my life has fluctuated a fair amount. I can put on a face while around people, but I generally prefer not to be.
    In more recent times, I've slid so far down the introvert scale that I not only hate being around people, but can't process being around more than a handful of them at a time - if it gets beyond that threshold I will tune everything (and everyone) out. That isn't hard for me to do, as once I'm focused on something (usually a task) I can very easily stay there.

    I like being around my friends, but I do my best in one-on-one interactions (or, rarely, groups of three). If put around a larger group I will generally leave without notice - which also isn't hard, as I'm not a person that naturally draws attention to myself.

    Also, pretty much every extrovert I've ever met (with only one exception) is a jerk.

    I'm an introvert all the way when I'm in public, It gets to the point where I can't ask anyone for directions. I get to nervous. But when I'm with my small group of friends, I'm often the loudest of the bunch.

    I'm very much an introvert. I used to be shy around pretty much everyone except my friends. And even though I've gotten much better at being social and all that, it still definitely drains my energy.

    That's exactly how I feel especially since most of my family are extrovert and I'm the only one that is an introvert in the bunch. Therefore, I'm often left out of any activity that the family does. If I get unfairly treated then I go further into a shell and it is hard for me to get out once I'm in.

    Now that I think about it, I should've known that most of the people on the internet would be introverts since extroverts would probably, you know, interact with people in person.

    I'd think it'd be more so because extroverts tend to go out a lot, and that's how they meet people. Introverts are less likely to go out (there's little incentive to, unless you're going grocery shopping), so they have to resort to finding friends via other methods.
    I have a fairly extensive network of friends in real life, but most of them time I'm at home, and hang out with my real-life friends only about once a week or so. And during that time at home, I need to talk to someone in order to satiate the need for social interaction.

    It isn't a case of in-person versus not; it's a matter of spare time spent and choice of hobbies.

    Introvert, being around too many people completely drains me and I hate being the center of attention.

    I'm definitely an introvert. I like to have my time to relax, but on occasion I will go out with friends. Most of my social interaction comes from texting my friends though. I don't want to completely isolate myself. I only see them physically maybe..once or twice a week?

    I'm really introverted. I rather being by myself at home than hanging out with friends. Not that I hate hanging out with them, I'd just rather do it less often. I find I often become mentally drained when hanging out with people for too long as well.

    Introvert for sure. I can clearly feel myself recharging when I am alone or just with my boyfriend. I do enjoy being around others, but not for too long or I get really exhausted, unless I REALLY like the company I'm with. I would say I'm an outgoing introvert.

    INCOMING EXTROVERT ALERT

    I am most definitely an extrovert. I talk to basically everyone and anyone I meet. And, for the most part, I believe that it has helped me immensely, both socially and in school. Course, though, being so outgoing can sure take up your time when you’re supposed to be working on some major project. And I’m not sure what I can say about introverts being more creative, seeing as I’m not an introvert and never really have been, but I can say that I’m certainly not the most creative person there ever was. I would place myself in the average circle when it comes to creativity. Each temperament I suppose, for the most part, has its perks.

    Guess I’m also in the minority when I say I’m an extrovert. I love groups of people and crowds (of course, large crowds have their annoyances), and I although I don’t do too well with one-on-one interactions, I still manage to find a way to make it work. I’m loud, rowdy, and boisterous, and I like being seen and heard. I like being the center of attention. Of course, I enjoy my alone time (who doesn’t?) but I get bored of that rather quickly and I end up wanting to do something with a friend.

    I am an introvert, but not by choice or shyness. Due to my disability, I am often left in a sense of hyper awareness to the point where I can barely think in crowded environments (I use the word crowded loosely to describe both people and objects). Being in these kinds of places is really taxing and I have to self isolate in a corner with nothing changing before my brain finally returns to me. I also can't work in crowded environments for the same reason, I have to work in isolated sectors. I often get through said crowded environments by gluing my eyes to the floor and only looking up for a split second to tell where I'm going.
