    I've spent 10+ hours willingly exploring the Clipsal 500 track, watching cars, drinking a little, and by the time the concerts came out to play, my back hurt so much, that all I wanted was to lay down somewhere... but powderfinger was playing... it was quite a confliction. I'd do that over sitting around doing nothing for 10 hours with nothing to do.
    There's probably people that do that sort of thing every weekend, I don't know if I could stand that if I were working the entire week though.

    Well, thanks to those who answered the actual question.


    I guess the others enjoy being nitpicky little imps.

    To each their own.

    I find it interesting how everyone's picking the Introvert option on this thread, but the Extrovert option on Wonkavision's other I vs. E thread. He might just be onto something...

    Ugh! Neither option would be tolerable for me.
    (option A) That works for me only if it is bedtime and I am asleep. Otherwise, I'd be completely bored because my thoughts aren't enough to keep me entertained for ten hours.
    (option B) I'm very sensitive to noise. This one sounds painful. If it were outside and lively, without the echo effect, this would be the preferred option for me.
    I still believe that I am an introvert but have never been certain about that.
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    A because of my NF. I always need to find my inner self but I need others to help me.

    One question---


    If you were forced to choose between the following two options, which would you choose?***


    ........ (A) To be alone with your thoughts and with very little outside stimulation, for 10 hours straight.


    ........ (B) To be in a lively atmosphere in which you could hardly hear yourself think, for 10 hours straight.




    *** (Please note that I am not suggesting that anyone would want to be in either of these situations.
    The purpose of the question is to determine which option would be more tolerable and, therefore, more preferable.)



    If you chose option A, I would say you are most likely an Introvert.

    If you chose option B, I would say you are most likely an Extravert.



    Does anyone disagree with this?

    If so, please explain.

    This seems context dependent and thus not a valid question. I would choose option A if my inner thoughts were invigorating enough. For example if I were writing a novel about a character I cared for. Then I might be satisfied being by myself for that long. Otoh I would choose option B. I would much prefer to be in a loud chaotic crowd witnessing revolution or some such important happening than be by myself listening to boring negative monologue.

    I consider myself to be an introvert by nature.
