    I have the MyType application on Facebook and one of my friends rated my personality as being extremely extroverted. I was like...what the word?! Since then I've payed more attention to my behavior in social settings - not that I don't pay attention to my behavior (I'm ridiculously self conscious) but I mean actually analyzing my level of outgoing-ness. I realized I can be extremely outgoing and talkative when I want to be. Out of curiosity I've even presented this to some of my acquaintances, and they all swear that I'm really social. Good grief. The social side is only a small part of me (actually, when I'm like that, it doesn't feel like me at all), and it takes huge amounts of effort to keep it up. I can't keep my outgoing side going for very long before I crash and burn.

    I find people interesting, but more in a sit-on-a-park-bench-just-to-watch-humans-passing-and-make-up-stories-about-them kind of way. If I see someone in a store that I know, I will often duck into another isle because I'm just not in the mood to talk. I don't jump at opportunities for social interaction. (Translation: I avoid them whenever possible.)

    I like people, but only sometimes. People are stressful.

    Haha I could never be mistaken for an extrovert. I get drained after just a little bit of interaction. But then I could run all day, so it's not a physical thing (it's mental). But in some situations, with a few people I know very well, I suppose it's possible to confuse me for an E.

    That's the same here. My school friends really don't believe me when I say I'm an introvert. I'm eighty percent full of introversion! I think some people just aren't really aware of what an introvert is. They're not always the distant, quiet, anti-social loners.

    People who think I'm extroverted only see me for short periods of time.

    At first when introducing myself to people, I'm pretty confident and moderately outgoing. Some people might think this is extroversion, but stick me in a group of people during a conversation, I'm so quiet, people wonder what I'm thinking. I usually say something when I have something related to the topic to discuss.

    I'm only ever shy around girls I secretly like... It's not funny dammit.

    For the rest I'm fairly outgoing. Like this morning, after going to a drum and base party me and a friend just met some people and went to an after party with them. I didn't know anybody there, but I made friends nonetheless.

    i'm very hesitant about starting conversations with people, and i'm not very friendly but if i'm with people i'm comfortable with i can be very loud and outgoing. so yeah in certain situations i could definitely be mistaken for an extrovert. less often now though.

    i feel like until i was 15 i was like an ENFP 7w6 and now i'm an INFP 4w5. no clue how that happened lol. puberty?
