Are introvercy and extrovercy actual words?
I'm introverted, usually.
I was painfully shy as a child/teenager.
It can be a real handicap.
Still that way at times.
But sometimes, especially when it comes to serious issues, I've learned to be a lot more extroverted. I'm half a century old; I finally realized my thoughts/opinions/beliefs/ are as valid as anyone else's; figured it was about time I made myself heard.
Brenda, you couldn't have said it better. I was that same child and it took me along time to speak my mind!
I think it's introversion and extroversion, actually.
I wrote a Hub about being an introvert. The definition isn't as straightforward as you might think! Years ago, my sister was doing psych at university and put me through a battery of tests - seems I'm an extroverted introvert. Or was it an introverted extrovert?
I could be either at any particular time...usually fits what is needed!
I'm very, very introverted at first. But if you make a point to try to get to know me, boy are you in for it!
Introverted unless around friends. Life of the party then.
Both in ways. Introvert in that I enjoy my quiet time alone, but extrovert when I'm with other people
From one ex-introvert to another (ha)---Nice to meet you, europewalker.
I'm just over the top and out of Control, can't be stopped baby!
I'm a very low-key. laid back, simple, and behind the scenes extrovert ?
Nobody is either introvert or extrovert. That's too simple a definition.
Even the most introvert of personalities will occasionally step over the dividing line and become extrovert. The reverse is also true for extroverts. Personalities fall along a spectrum with introversion and extroversion at opposite ends.
But most here will have personalities that veer towards introversion. That is obvious.
I am now, and always have been, 100% extrovert.
There isn't a human being that knows me who could come up with any evidence stating otherwise.
I lived in one state for 20 years and I was an introvert.
I moved to another state became an extrovert...different life styles. So it's possible.
Have totally no idea which one I am... depends on the mood?!
extrovert in tne internet, introvert in person...thats me...
Are there some proper tests on that? Would be nice to check..
There are loads of psychological tests on personality.
But even if you find that your personality type is 'extrovert' it's still meaningless. Because you will never be 'extrovert' at all times, in all situations in your life. Even the most extrovert of personalities will experience self doubt and retreat into a more introverted state when they are faced with certain challenges.
But then it should work the other way round too - you can not be introvert at all times, right?
Still there should be one of those that prevails. Or not?
You're catching on fast. Perhaps there is hope for you afterall.
Even an introverted personality will have moments when they let their hair down and dance with the extroverts. It's just that those moments will not have the same frequency as those with an extrovert personality type. The key here, is understanding which personality state you are in most of the time - extroverted or introverted?
It depends on the area in which you are living and feeling.

What do you believe is better, an extroverted or an introverted personality?

Can a person be both an extrovert and a recluse?I'm certainly extroverted in my interactions with others. However, I do not do a lot of socializing, by choice. Although never intimidated to talk to anyone on a myriad of subjects, I do find alone time is my preference. If I'm at a large...
