Introvert or extrovert

    hey there, are you writing because you may be introvert in normal face to face conversations (other than "earning money" raesons).

    I know I am neutral with a little bit inclination towards being extrovert..

    How about you hubbers?

    I am an introvert, but the reason I'm on here is because I am unemployed and having a hard time finding a new job since no one is hiring Preschool Teachers. So I thought this was a good way to make some money while I still search for a teacing job or any other job at the moment. But so far even this isn't making me any extra money. :-(

      This thing don't pay off instantly. You might have read elsewhere on forums how it took many hubbers 10 months or so to receive their first check. Eventually you start getting a monthly check and earnings keep on increasing. I understand you are searching for a job but don't let HubPages hinder your job search. Keep writing with your job. As it is a good hobby and a source of income.

    I keep thinking of business ideas off and on. here is one that you may already thought about... just get it there, in case you did not.

    if you are a pre-school teacher, why don't you open a day care center..

    That is a big help for those who work and you would never have to worry about job again. and if you have kids, they would get best attention. just a thought...

    I'm an extrovert. Although I enjoy my quiet time, I'm around people most of the day. smile

    I am not a day care person. That is totally different than being a Preschool Teacher. Preschool teachers aren't baby sitters.

      Sorry I did not mean to offend you by any means. I did not mean baby-sitting at all. 

      Being a pre-school teacher you can have your own educational curriculum designed for kids. Day care centers where I live here are not just baby sitters. they provide a lot of organized education to kids that empower their kindergarten learning. I really meant to say that you can use your skillset in providing educations to pre-schoolers. You can target the right audience as per your taste and style. the only extra item is extended day hours that you can employ one helper after the school-hours. I am not sure what it takes to open a pre-school however I know if you can work for yourself, that independence is a great gift.

      I am sorry again if I offended by any means.

        Sorry to interrupt your thread HubChief, but there is a news for you. The computer sciences category has been renamed as "Computer science and Programming". big_smile

        Now forgive me for interrupting and carry on with your thread.

        Sadly where I live day care centers are just that baby sitters. I even worked in Hawaii for 6 months and I felt like a baby sitter and it was a preschool. And sorry for seeming to snap. damn internet! can't type anything without it coming off wrong unless you put lol or *rolls eyes* or something lmao

    I am a 'Type-A Post-Menopausal Irish Female'. I think that pretty much sums it up. Translated: There is not an introverted bone in my body! smile

      I'm right behind you, only difference is I'm Peri-Menopausal Irish Female!  However, becoming agoraphobic was a complete slap in my face, as I love to be out and among people.

    I am EXTREEEEEEMEELY extroverted. I write online only because it's probably illegal or at the very least unkosher to shove my writing in someone's face and demanding them to read it. This way I can write anytime I have the opportunity and someone is always listening...

    Lisa HWposted 8 years ago

    Like most people, I'm not an extreme introvert or extrovert.  Based on the definition that introverts get energized by having some alone time and tend to be more reserved, I'm more that than an extrovert.   I'm really sociable, though, and I'm usually the one that makes others feel comfortable.  I'm a very verbal person and love conversations and debates of all types.

    So, no.  I'm not here because of being challenged in face-to-face conversations.  I write because I enjoy putting words together (and I suppose some would say "have a lot to say").  I see it as "communicating and having the power to bring people together".   smile  Money or no money, I write regardless.  Still, I'm also here for the money.

    I'm more inclined to be extroverted, but it depends on the situation and who I am with.

    I've been called eccentric way too many times. I have no idea why. smile i'm neither a billionaire, neither I'm I old. lol just kidding. You said extrovert or introvert? Hmmm, I'm an extrovert when I've gotta put on a phony smiley face that everybody expects. And an introvert when I'm alone putting down my twisted, ingenious thoughts to writing. Ha!

    I have always needed to have "alone time" to put things into perspective and to make decisions.  I guess I am an introvert.

    Leta Sposted 8 years ago

    I am a proud introvert (most writers and artists are) who derives energy from being alone at times, contemplating, reading/writing and doing creative things.

    However, I do have some extroverted qualities. I am usually the first to volunteer what I believe in or to discuss ideas, ie, I do not hesitate to make decisions or plan, and I have always had a lot of friends.  The thing is, those friends usually come as individuals, not groups. wink

    I actually took one of those tests a few weeks ago in a psych course. I am almost completely categorized as an extrovert but do have some introvert characteristics. Sometimes I really crave alone time, but I think that's totally normal.

    I am both, I am able to illicit conversations and thoughts in social settings and function very well surrounded by people.  I prefer to be alone when forming stories and such though.

    By conventional definitions -- extroverted meaning social, at ease in conversations and social settings vs. introverted meaning shy and uncomfortable around people, then I am an extrovert.
    But on the Meyers-Briggs or Kiersey Temperament Scale, I (Introvert) and E (Extrovert) refer to where you go to regenerate your engery. If you look to recharge your batteries from social contact, you are "E" vs. if you look into yourself, you are "I."
    By that definition, I'm an "I."

    Appears I'm in the minority, but I'm a very strong introvert. I start to go kind of crazy if I don't have copious amounts of alone time, so I've been known to literally schedule it in.

    hmm, tough one. I enjoy spending much of my time on the computer but i really don't derive energy from it.  But when i hang out with friends, we're usually sailing or playing a sport of some kind so I don't get energy from that either. But i do seem to be hyper when i hang out with me friendz.
    But i also get nervous when i meet new people because i dread blank stares hmm so i come off as shy

    I'm a total introvert but I've developed the ability to turn on extroverted behaviors as a survival mechanism and means of getting things done when needed.  I also enjoy beer as a means of transcending my reclusiveness from time to time.  I prefer small groups far, far, far more than large parties and crowds.

    I am an extovert. However, once I took the Meyers Briggs test after a particularly bad day at a job in which I had to endure some especially despicable treatment at the hands of people I was trying to help, and I tested as an introvert.

    So I guess my outgoing nature or reservedness depends on how charitable or misanthropic I'm feeling at any given moment.

    I tend to enjoy my alone time when I can squeeze It In . But I do have some remedial social skills . So I would tend to lean towards the Introvert side .
