How many of you haven't left your house/home in 2 months or more, being so comfortable at home
that you do not wish or feel like going out at all?
I'm as big an introvert as anyone and I'll sometimes go a week or so without leaving home, but I think if someone who is not home bound for a medical reason is staying home for that long of a stretch, it could be a red flag.
I would worry about anxiety or agoraphobia in someone who didn't venture out. In fact, long periods of isolation can trigger those issues. Even those of us who are introverted are social creatures and we need to get out of our own "comfort zones" sometimes for the sake of our emotional and mental well-being.
The exception might be for someone who is physically injured or ill, but then I would ensure that person was having regular visits and was engaged socially.
I'm an introvert, and I work at home. I can go for a week without leaving the house, or speaking to anyone but my dogs. I can't go much longer than that, because I'm an organic vegan, and need a steady supply of fresh produce.

Oh, I thought it was never leaving the house at all.. Yeah that's me too, store errands and to pay bills-though at lot of times I do that online. If I'm out long enough, I look forward to going home. I set aside time to go to church and library
I can't stay inside for more than a day unless I'm sick I am always preferring to be out of the house

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...
