    I consider myself an introvert. This may be a result of my upbringing. Yes, I want to stay alone and be with myself. I want to study and read a book instead of wasting time chatting with others for nonsense things. Yet it occurs to me that I want to go out and talk to friends time and again. I don't want lots of friends. I don't want to add new friends to my list of old friends. After my recovery from pleural effusion, I'm afraid to make friends, thinking I was alone (except for my family) when I was at the hospital for two months and the couple of months thereafter.

    When I was younger, I used to be an extrovert: always trying to get a laugh out of the group, always speaking up, and giving lots of advice.  In college I spent so many long, ardous hours studying alone, and needed to be by myself to study well.  So I learned to be very happy and productive by myself.  Since then, because of that, I am now more introverted and usually prefer to be alone, or with my husband.  I recognize the value of having a few very close friends, as opposed to many "friends" who don't know me very well.  So people used to give me energy, but now solitude does! 
    I also think it depends though, you know?  It depends on what kind of situation I'm in, who are the people involved and how well I know them, and what we're doing or talking about.

    I guess I am whatever you need me to be, or the situation demands.

    On my own I am introvert, in a crowd I will possibly be extrovert, unless someone else has already taken the spot.

    Somewhere in between.Give me a book most days and i am happy.Silence is sometimes very golden.In a situation where there is no one to break the ice,i take the bull by the horns and initiate conversions about something; anything.I really hate those awkward pauses.They are uncomfortable.So i can be anything depending on the situation but as i have grown older,i tend towards a bit of an extrovert.

    I am an introvert by nature. I do act as an exrovert in job and social situations. A little greagarious with a little internal push, so to speak. My energy comes from certain people but generally speaking nature provides energy for me. With or without people. But, usually I am in solitude with nature. Sounds confusing, eh?

    In other words I like being in my garden and I like visitors then too.

    I'm basically an introvert but from time to time, I do need the company of others.
