I am. But I try to be civil in public anyway. I don't know how much of it leaks through, but I try not to seem cranky.
I do tend to growl, moan, or whine if I'm spoken to at home or some other "comfortable" environment, though, since I wasn't in "anticipating/attention" mode.
My general mood tends be more negative and tense than that of most E's. It should be about as easy for me to deal with the outer world as it is for an E to be alone and focus inwards with intensity. I have a feeling E's would be cranky too if they were forced to deal with their inner world as often as I's are forced to deal with the outer one.
Hell, I'm cranky sometimes, and I'm an E. I would think we would show it more??? I could be wrong. I have no idea.
To be honest, I'm talking out my ass.
But seriously thatgirl, I'm an IT and cranky does not describe any of my moods, I do however get frustrated by incompetance and stupid statements about needing to be more extravert, I also go quiet when stressed which might be something that could be misread by anyone who doesn't know me, but I'm not cranky. That's all.
I can't deny the crankiness, but it's usually the result of insufficient alone time and too many burdens having to be tended to. Otherwise I am least cranky in the morning hours before the world wakes up.
I can be cranky, especially if your a dog and wake me up by barking 6 in the morning. I don't know what you're barking at you stupid dog. No I do not want to play it's before noon, leave me alone. I'm not a morning person, even though I wake up early, I probably will not want any high energy around me until noon.
or when someone calls me cranky, I have a habit of making what someone accuses me as true. So the best way to get me to do something is accuse me of it...I've said too much
or if their is constant noise going and I need sleep or get some work done, the smallest distraction distracts me, I can't watch tv or listen to music while doing homework.
