    Good for insomnia too.
    Wouldn't it make you drowsy whenever you took it?

    Cool. I'm sure I'll forget to buy any though. lol.

    5HTP helps control appetite, insomnia, mood and fibromyalgia

    ^They're pushing it like snake oil. LOL I was just reminded of a day in high school, at the best friend's house, when I put masking tape around everything in the spice rack and renamed it all to such as Snake Oil! (including a drawing of a viper head with mouth agape). His dad HATED me!

It's weird because I would say I'm 50/50 in the extroversion/introversion department. The ENFP description suits me 100%, but I tend to become anxious in certain social settings.
    yeah. im totally like this.

    i think i was like 51% E and 49% I.... something like that.

    but you know at these "networking" type of events... where everyone is stuffy, fake, and just out trying to get theirs... i usually feel totally uncomfortable... but yeah, when im comfortable... i think i always have fun. hehe

    Sounds like snake oil, but serotonin isn't just a neurotransmitter - it's involved in all those other processes too.
    Plus it's cheap and available without a prescription. I know lots of folk who swear by it.

    I didn't say it was, just that the website seemed to be overselling it. I will look into it.

    That is very true. It's so strange because I think around most people I get very uncomfortable because they give off a fake and superficial vibe that I would like to stay far away from. It literally brings my spirit down. My extroversion/introversion is slightly higher than yours (60% Extroversion, 40% Introversion). It depends on where my mind is at, at times I think I'm 60% Introverted, lol. Positive energy is so important to me. It brings out the real me. Does that make sense?


    Also, I can't stand when I'm mellow and more to myself and people think something is wrong. :steam:. I don't like to play the "life of the party" role all the time. A co-worker told me "You have to be consistent, you can't be talkative one day and be quiet and to yourself the next...you confuse people!". WTH!

    Your choice to use tiny red text for the body of your post? No.

    Or did you mean your post? I don't know, I didn't read it.

    sol, lots of people get shy, regardless of their type. I experience it and I'm not exactly ENFP.
