I would want some input from you to clarify the matter about my introversion/extraversion.
In tests I result introverted, but I don't know if it's true.
Can you give me your opinion?
For example, with my family, girlfriend, close friends, I am very talkative, I take initiative, I am at easy in talking about all things, play with words, debating, brain storming.
With other people I am introverted because I contain myself very often and I don't speak my mind because I was educated by my ISFJ mom to be always respectful with people, not give bad impression, don't talk too much, don't say stupid things and so on, because I was a child spontaneous and abrasive.
So that education give me a double personality that I have mantained in my entire 30-something life. Quite crazy with close people and generally contained with others.
But being crazy with close people comes spontanous and I feel good, being contained with others make me tense.
Then, I feel good being alone, and I stay alone a lot of hours, but I need always some stimulation, books, news, computer, surfing the web, music.
If I stay too much only with my own thought I get depressed easily. Even if I don't talk with anyone, for example, I need watching people, watching new things, walking in the middle of a city, go to the cinema or theatre. I get upset if I am ill and I can't go out for a walk in a couple of days. I couldn't live in the country or in an isolated place always with the same things.
Also, i could be introverted because I like my privacy, I don't like unexpected visit at home. I don't like small talk about stupid things with people I have nothing in common. But as I said, I like talking or chatting with people and arguments I like and I get energized.
i don't know how write more now... What you think? Ask something if you want.
