    ^All of that, except that I am very quiet and untalkative, but do have the thing about being uncomfortable with silence, especially when other people are around. If the other people start the conversation I'll just go along with it and interject only when something strikes my fancy, but when everyone is quiet, I'm usually the one wanting to start things back up I am still rather in between...

    Depends on a lot of things for me: interest, focus, stress, familiarity...

    So, some might describe me as quiet at first glance because I'm least talkative when I'm out & about by myself and someone I don't know suddenly approaches me while I'm focused on something else. Or when I'm focused at work and someone suddenly approaches with personal small talk. Those times are deceiving because overall, I'm talkative and I have a strong desire for quality interactions with people. I really have no fears of speaking about what's on my mind.

    Quiet extroverts exist because there are many different ways to interact with your environment without people being in the vicinity.

    i'm usually very, very talkative. and energetic.
    but when i do get quiet it's usually because my
    mind is just consumed by something else...

    my quiet is perceived 'louder' than anything i
    can say outloud. it's very bizzare.

    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    ^ Yeah... People get nervous when I am quiet. They automatically think I am depressed.

    My sister's a pretty quiet extrovert. Some people think she's even quieter than I am.

    But both of us are certain she's an extrovert.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    When asked to do johari/nohari windows for me some of the words family members, who know me best, chose were: introverted, quiet, reflective, withdrawn and distant. So yes.

    That depends on what you mean.

    You will find extraverts that are not talkative in *some* situations, but it's extremely rare to find an extravert which is consistently non-talkative.

    In any case, the factors which are a tell-tale between I and E are two:
    - initiative (on average Es take more initiative with people / activities than Is)
    - energy expenditure (again Es expend more energy than Is, even uselessly so)

    As far as me: I can be very quiet when I don't really love the company, but my natural tone of voice is extremely loud.
