    That's true. I talk to myself. And my rule is that, when I talk to myself, it has to be in Spanish. Since I am a motormouth, it has turned out to be a good way for me to practice my Spanish!

    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.

    I probably do bug [the hell out of] some introverts, but mostly I don't. Since being an extravert means you usually have a wider collection of hapless victims to choose from as well as well as lots of things to distract us. Also - I'M FRICKIN CHARMING, DAMMIT!



    Ok, maybe not. But I swear. to. gawd. introverts have told me (and I quote) I am "not annoying". :angel:

    I like being extroverted, I would like to be more extroverted in certain ways. Like...Fe ways
    I hide in the corner from my ESFP mother and some ESFJs, it's true. I'm not gonna lie. They can out-talk me, and occasionally it feels like straight-up assault. That's why I do have a shred of sympathy for introverts, because I understand the feeling of "yes could you please just shut the fuck up and go play by yourself or with someone else for a minute."

    But on the other hand, me and my ESFP mother can also follow each other around the house talking, same with my ESFJ ex - we could spend hours on the phone, and would occasionally talk over each other. It drove his ISFJ mother batshit crazy sometimes when we were at her house just talking and talking and talking...the main difference is he was the kind of person who would even want to talk first thing in the morning, and I had to teach him to leave me alone. Same thing with my mother, she calls me the sleeping bear and knows not to fuck with me because she can be a straight-up annoying, draining, over-dramatic emotional vampire at times, and my two extroverted sisters agree with me on this fact.

    So yeah, I can be a little of both.

    Yes, It can be hard living an extroverted lifestyle

    -People you don't remember know your name....so you have to play the roll in efforts to not hurt their feelings.
    -Sometimes those people you don't remember ask you to take their number down, and you have to ask them to spell their name ...and their name is something simple like Bob lol.
    -Your calendar is completely booked all the time so you end up feeling overwhelmed at times.
    -People are comfortable telling you about all of their crazy / gross stories that are way TMI.
    -You feel sad when you arent given the props or compliments you think you deserve.
    -When your having a bad hair day you don't feel comfortable to be seen in public.

    When they offer their number you just put your cell phone in their hand and say: "Sorry, could you please just type in your name, phone number and e-mail adress for me. It's faster that way"

    Which is even true.

    It's true, it's all true!



    I would go hide in a corner, except I know that it would make things even worse....

    - i need a 10-car caravan to hold all my really close friends
    - my extensive family is always offering me places to stay
    - i bond easily in every social situation, even across language barriers
    - i get fidgety if i'm not the life of the party
    - i have trouble with gangs because i make (rather assertive) friends on both sides
    - i start to feel lonely when i remember there are only 6 billion people on the planet
    - sometimes it gets old, being the center of attention
    - i have to tape my mouth shut at night so i don't talk
    - i also have to duct tape myself to the bed so i don't go off on amazing impulsive adventures
    - i never get into those "gifted" programs because people already recognize all my amazing talents and i already own those programs
