    I hate doing arithmetic, so I whipped up javascript versions of the quizzes:

    Introversion Quiz

    Covert Narcissism

    These are very lightly tested (I just threw them together), so don't necessarily trust the results. Still, seems to work for me.

    My results:

    Introversion: 1.90 (introverted)
    MCNS: 51 (average, almost low)

    2.7 and 54... yet I am an Extrovert, just not a very good one

    Am all for people getting over the inane stereotypes of Introvert = deep thinker/introspective, Extrovert = all the things they aren't.

    Me thinks you might just have a case of the lazy, ye one who hides amongst the shadows .

    The studies really do kind of shake the foundation of what it means to be extroverted though. I think there's equally as many people who see themselves as extroverts but are actually introverted. A lot of it does come from the standpoint of dominance which is historically not really associated with extroversion from what I've noticed. I agree with the studies and their findings, but it's still interesting. It also leads me to wonder how this would apply to individuals with depression or depression-like mental illness, and anxiety mental illnesses. It could really cloud ones nature in the I/E spectrum, and it's something I have certainly experienced in the past.

    I scored a 3.2
    and a 49, which seems too low

    I know i'm not sensitive, special, or highly intelligent, I also don't have social anxiety or shy. But I know I'm an introvert. You can be totally fine walking up to strangers and asking questions and still be introvert. or you can be totally not fine walking up to strangers and asking questions and still be an extrovert. Social situations drain me, and not because i'm anxious they just do.

    But because I id as an Introvert, I don't think i'm unicorn poop or anything.

    definitional switching, is what this is called.

    and also, again, what's with the undercurrent of negative labeling? psychology, or shall i call it, pop psychology is ridden with prescriptive as opposed to descriptive labels. one characteristic i like about the mbti is how it is descriptive whereas much of psychology is prescriptive. forgive me, but isn't psychology still in its infancy? less than 100 years old? and yet we feel competent enough apply it so confidently? enough to prescribe psychoactive drugs altering something as essential brain chemistry? the modern day drug push is no better than the mushing of the prefrontal cortex as a remedy for...who knows what...

    psychology has a lot of blood on its hands, and it's the prescriptive "negative labeling" that's one reason why.

    That seems correct, I'd definitely call myself an ambivert, a modest one. I understand why I may seem like an introvert to many in real life.

    Scored 4.0 on the I/E test, so again another test marks me as an extrovert. Good. Well the only time I ever scored introvert was on the similarminds JCF test. It put me as INFP because I scored 95% Ne and 100% Fi.

    Scored 47 on the covert narcissist test. So I'm below average but not exactly "low" in covert narcissism.
