I had been planning on writing this before a few members suggested that I may be an INTP, so that is merely a coincidence in relation to my posting this, but it certainly did fortify my uncertainty.
More and more I have been receding from prolonged period's social interaction. Even tonight I found myself escaping two or three times within a six hour window because I needed a break from the intensity. Normally hanging out with my friends isn't too socially taxing and I can be within talking distance of them for days, but tonight there were some acquaintances that are a bit more boisterous. Even outside of tonight I generally avoid clearly congenial and gregarious group opportunities.
A few weeks ago I met a rather outgoing girl in psychology class. I thought she was cool so I invited her to hang out that weekend. Unfortunately I found her almost unbearably talkative - like she'd explode if she didn't talk. Eventually she felt a little less nervous and piped now a bit, but I doubt I'll intentionally put myself in another long car ride with her.
I tend to reverse-reflect whatever social environment I'm in.
If everyone is arguing, I'll try to unify them.
If everyone is in agreement fairy-tail land, I'll try to get them to identify their differences and maybe even argue.
If everyone is quiet, I'll quite skillfully allure them into group conversation.
If there is one or more overly talkative person's, I'll remain as silent as the dead.
My question is:
As far as you can tell according to your own observations and criteria, what do you think my type is?
Feel free to pick my brain as much as you'd like before voting if you have any questions. If you don't,go ahead and vote... maybe even say why you voted the way you did.
