    Default What kind of introvert are you?

    A new Scientific American article talks about way to break "introversion" (not necessarily just Jungian introversion) into for sub scales that have the handy acronym STAR: social, thinking, anxious, and restrained. These sub scales are taken from a masters thesis by Jennifer Odessa Grimes.

    The blog entry includes a hand-scored quiz. (I may make an javascript version later, but sadly I'm in the middle of my work day.)

    At any rate, I do it's helpful to keep in mind what people mean by "introverted," since the popular usages cover a lot of territory.

    the quiz on the link scores itself!

    Social Introvert

    You spend a lot of time by yourself—and you're completely okay with that. You are happy with the small group of friends that you have and you avoid large crowds like the plague.

    I don't think you pick "one" type of introversion -- you rank yourself in all four, since they are different types of introversion. You could technically be high in more than one category.

    Social Introversion (24L/30A/36H) = 39
    Thinking Introversion (28L/34A/40H) = 48
    Anxious Introversion (23L/30A/37H) = 38
    Restrained Introversion (25L/31A/37H) = 35

    I scored high in three of them, but the obvious highest was Thinking introversion.


    interesting footnote:

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Thinking introvert apparently, surprised I didn't get anxious.

    You have a great relationship with yourself because you spend a lot of time thinking about what kind of person you are, daydreaming, and fantasizing about the future. You enjoy your rich inner mental life, and you like to think about how you would act or think if you were subjected to circumstances faced by other people.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Piglet was comforted by this.

    I scored highest on "Anxious introvert" but I can relate to all the other categories.
