    Introvert with brief spouts of extrovert.

    Much more extrovert with people I’m comfortable with, obviously.

    I'm an introvert, I always have been. But, because of the work I did and the need to give professional papers and deal with the customers, I hid it under a fake extrovert façade.

    I found it works very well. But often you tire of the pretense of liking people around you, and have to hide out for while.

    I would suspect that an online forum would have a higher proportion of introverts as it allows us to socialize and converse without the normal bother of actual social interaction.

    I’m more introverted and ideally prefer to spend my free time with my family, few close friends or by myself.

    Through work and life I’ve become semi adept at faking it but most social interactions are a necessary chore in order to get to spend time with loved ones or alone on the motorcycle or in the woods.

    I do get along with most people as I tend to be empathetic and can see things from different perspectives. When I find someone on the same wavelength I tend to form strong long term bonds.

    The best definition I have ever heard for how to tell if you are an extrovert or introvert goes something like this:

    When you find yourself at large gatherings of people does that experience energize you or drain you? Energized means you are an extrovert, drained means you are an introvert.

    Conversely, I've heard it this way:

    When you want to spend your time socializing with groups of people to recharge, you're an extrovert.

    When you want to spend time alone to recharge, you're an introvert.

    Do people believe you can morph from one into another?

    It's kind of like being liberal as a kid when you are full of idealism, fire and brimstone... then evolving into more conservative as marriage, children, family values and protecting your home and future become the priority.

    I was definitely more extroverted as a kid. Performance, sport, relishing the opportunity to prove to the world that I was all that and a bag of chips. Energizing, for sure.

    But as I get older... I'm more secure in who I am, the relationships I've built and looking to protect what and whom I cherish. With the "nanny / snitch" culture, I avoid doing or saying anything in real life that could be taken out of context and turned into a viral video.

    So these days I'm looking to be the gray man as it seems anyone looking for attention might find it... and it might not turn out the way they thought it would...
