    Wow, a long time ago, I thought I was introverted... I had only tested that way for a while because that's how my aspergers has affected me. Preferred working alone, etc... but I do believe now that I am more extroverted overall.

    A few years back my results always came back as an introvert. At the time I was really depressed and didn't want to leave the house or even talk to anyone. Now I'm the complete opposite... When I was depressed I tested as an INTP all the time...

    No. I greatly appreciate my time alone. Spending nights up in "vampire mode". Taking walks alone. Closing and locking my door and shutting my housemates out of my room for days on end.

    But I am absolutely aware of the need to get out. So when I am out in public, I make sure I consciously wear my smile, make my eye contact and say my "how are you's".

    I just wish people didn't drain me so much. I can't even visit with family very long without getting sleepy and wanting to leave. It makes me feel like I can't contribute much in social settings.
