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 gathering, I would rather seek out only one or two individuals to interact with. Am I more the norm or the oddity in the room?

    I think your answer pretty much sums it up with "yes, yes."

    Bingo! You just described me to a tee, except for the sewing part. I'm an insomniac and my wife who's still teaching after 38 yrs. requires a lot of sleep. Home is my sanctuary, with the company of my dogs and the animals that visit daily.

    I think you did a super job in explaining your personality, which seems somewhat like mine. You're correct. I'm not really a recluse, but I do treasure my private time.

    Thank you for your candidness. I'm opposite of you regarding the phone. If I call someone I want them to answer, but if I don't recognize caller ID I never answer an incoming call. I was also the kid who couldn't wait for his turn to read aloud.
