    I like bars and cofee houses

    90% of my conversations are in my head

    I sometimes do that but I want to know other people's opinions

    I could do that I try to do that but some how it comes across as crap and i change my mind every other day it seems like

    I overthink this chicken out and don't reply.

    right now I'm half asleep so my brain is not working at the moment.

Sure technically it tires you out, but at the same time it gets you going and makes you feel like you have more energy.
    Yes, I know this happens, but it's not permanent. People seem to talk in absolutes when it comes to this and I've never seen this as any sort of absolute.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    For those who have no friends outside the internet, perhaps, you should organize a meetup that jives with your interests/likes. I 'm sure there will be kindred spirits locally.

    Are you telling me you never met anyone you liked on the internet in person?

    I've met at least 55 people I first met on the internet. It's actually pretty rare and over 30 of those were at a single event. In the last 7 years I have met, maybe, 15 people when it wasn't a big group thing (like Vegas or Boston), usually because one person I met lived near others they knew from the same area. I've drifted from most of these people, though. If I don't talk to them online, I don't end up talking to them on the phone or see them in person, that's just the way it works with me.

    Is that an ironclad rule? I have heard of this via temperament theory, and seen it (though not necessarily among those considered introverts). When asked a question, my first instinct is never -- never -- to ask for a moment to think, least of all temporize.

    Edit:

    I do that as well. The bustle of indoor malls, especially at times of moderately high traffic, is a favorite immersion.

    Yes. No matter how much fun it is at the time, I am mentally scheduling my Me Time for later. Even while enjoying the interaction I know that it's going to necessitate some alone time to 'recover'.

    Example of repressed extroversion:

    As a kid, I usually had to choose between following groups or being alone/with individual friends. Since following was draining, I usually chose the latter.

    Hmmm that's interesting. I don't know about powerless to change it, perhaps not even sure if they want to. I do believe that a true introvert however would work to preserve it.

    I consider myself a repressed E. How do I think they differ, well I am interested in the world beyond my interior..perhaps not as much as other extroverts but certainly more than introverts. I go beyond myself to not only share the me I'm constantly working on (if anyone wants some but also to discover things that I perhaps have only thought about or perhaps never even imagined.
    for my life is slowed up by thought and the need to understand what I am living.

    Some of the most funny people are introverts. Some extraverts have to be that way because they don't have the ability to have a meaningful conversation while staying in for the evening.

    If I saw extroversion as the ideal "orientation" I'd gravitate towards it over time (I believe that conciously you can change yourself over about 5-10 years where eventually subconciously you become that way). I see constant extroversion as a waste of time... besides having to engage in mind numbing chit chat about average things.

    Anyway, I'd say that you always oscillate around your mean level of introversion/extraversion... you'll find that swings are a rebounds from pushing yourself too far one way or the other.
