Introvert. Definitely. I prefer home, family and close friends.

I think introverts are better equipped to survive the zombie apocalypse. We won't be seeking out people to be with and potentially hooking up with a zombie or a non-zombie who does something stupid that gets us both killed.

Misnamed...I thought I'd find out how to tap into my "hidden powers." Instead, all I found was a really depressed man with crazy baggage talking about how he felt "excluded."

I'm a good acting introvert. I would rather sit inside and do research on something I find interesting intellectually. But all my friends growing up were loud get out and do stupid sh*t folk. So I have them to thank for breaking me out of my shell a bit. School systems should take this into consideration with how they teach as well.

When I am asked which one I think I am, I always have a hard time answering. When he is talking about introverts vs. extroverts in work, I fall on the extrovert side. Yet when he talks about them in social life, I'm on the introvert side.
So I'm either a calm extrovert, or an over-stimulated introvert?

I tell people I'm an introvert, but I'm actually just lazy and stupid.

We're out there: stop oppressing us with your activities and achievements!

I think this video overstretches a little the pains of introversion, and gets some issues wrong, but as it becomes more broad based at the end it gets better. As I studied, the simple difference between extroverts and introverts is that the latter absorbs too much information for its brain to handle comfortably, while the former is the opposite.

I'm in the mildly interesting case of an introvert raised and surrounded (almost entirely) by intelligent, but strong, extroverts while I was growing up. As a result of my attempts to adapt to my social environment, I have a pretty droll/kooky personality. If you ever find someone like me, hopefully you'll understand why they're a little... off.

@h0ax_d3m0n, look up MBPT, it's only one part of personality and well researched. Also, you can learn to behave in different ways to your natural state - like being right handed but learning to write with your left hand. You are still naturally right handed.

I'm basically an introvert and do most things by myself (live, travel, work, etc.). But I can also be a ham when I feel comfortable around the people I'm with. So, it's all based on circumstance.

The only recurring "crap" I get about it is people constantly marveling that I am okay with traveling alone. Have actually had people try to FORCE me to be with other random people on MY vacation because they can't believe a woman can be ok just enjoying herself on her own.

'I'm very introverted, and no one has ever given me poo for it. People just understand I like "me" time and don't like crowds. Move on.'

I'm an introvert too, and I have gotten crap for it, though mainly in my late-teens, early twenties. Being in my late-twenties now, I think most people have learned that it's just who I am, though someone did make a crack at a party recently (probably due to alcohol). Part of being an introvert is learning how to handle the comments.

Seriously, I had to stop. I'm very introverted, and no one has ever given me poo for it. People just understand I like "me" time and don't like crowds. Move on.

According to this, I am 60% Extrovert, 40% Introvert. Now what?

I am definitely an introvert and have been doing a lot of research on introversion for a huge paper I have due at the end of this year. Anyone who's interested more about introversion should take a look at the Susan Cain TedTalk, it's pretty interesting. http://www.ted.com/talks/susan_cain_the_power_of_introverts.html

'this is such a load of poo. you cant define a person by one word, introvert or extrovert. human beings differ too much, most people will probably find that they are a mixture of both of these things. sounds like the person who made this video is a so called "introvert"'

You obviously didn't watch the whole video, because it clearly states that nobody is completely introverted or completely extroverted.
