    Default Introverts, were you more outgoing as a child?

    I was shy around adult strangers, but less shy around my peers than I am now.

    I was definitely an introvert already, but I was much more talkative.

    I was a lot more outgoing as a child. I've always been more outgoing around adults than my peers though. As I went through middle school, thats when I clammed up.

    I've been an obvious introvert my whole life. My outgoingness changes though. I'd say It went up till about age 8 to 9 then fell till age 13-14 and has been going up since. Middle school clamming up matches with ayo.

    Intresting thread idea.

    Back a very long time ago there was a clear distinction between social introversion and introversion in mbti terms on typelogycentral that was debated and often referred to in posts. The main idea was: is a person, who was born at the north pole and lived alone there for 30 years ever able to be an assertive E type in mbti terms ?

    I liked that question and it did add some new dimensions to the perception of the term introversion.

    I've always been very talkative when prodded, and I was, and still am, pretty outgoing. I thought I was an extrovert when I first found MBTI, but now that I know what extroversion/introversion is, I realize that I'm highly introverted.
    Isn't life under the sun just a crazy, crazy, crazy dream? Isn't life just a mirage of the world before the world? Why am I here and not over there? When did time begin? Where does space end? Where do you and I begin?

    No. I was a very shy child. I became more outgoing as I grew older.
    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.

    yeah, i was very outgoing and outspoken as a kid. kind of a smart-ass.
    then in my late teens and 20s i became really introverted.

    When I was younger I actually was more outgoing, but I was quiet until I got a bit more comfortable with the person. I preferred hanging out with adults more and still do, but I didn't talk much to them then or now.

    I suppose it can be said that it was because I was more comfortable, so I acted more extroverted around my elementary companions.
