Are you an In-e or an Out-e?

belly buttonNo, not your belly button silly.

Although, that would have probably made a funnier post.


No, I’m talking about ~~ Are you an introvert or an extrovert?


Basically introverts get their “energy” by being alone and recharging themselves. Extroverts get their “energy” from others. They get joy and excitement out of being around others.

If given a chance, introverts would prefer to be alone doing what they love (can be anything, reading, TV, computer, gardening, doesn’t matter). While extroverts would prefer to P A R T ~ aaaaa. They love to be around others and the thought of being alone drives them batty.

If there is a party going on, the extroverts love to be the first ones there and the last to leave. Introverts are thinking of every reason to get out of the sill thing. “Cough, cough, I think I feel a cold coming on.”

Extroverts see a crowd of people and start to salivate at the thought of joining them. Introverts hyperventilate at the thought of having to join them.

I am an introvert. However, I will get folks to disagree when I tell them. Why? Shouldn’t it be obvious?

I wish it was. Turns out there are a lot more folks like me. We have learned to succeed in the work place by giving speeches, teaching people, or even getting involved in a conversation or two.

What you don’t see is our internal dialog shouting for us to RUN!  

Sure we can have fun, but in our head we are already looking forward to getting home and turning off all the noise around us.

So, are you an In -e or an Out-e?


~~~till we laugh again~~~

    I am definitely, 100%, an in-e, and I totally get everything you said. I have learned to be very outgoing when I have to be, but given a choice I will be sitting at home reading a book. I never go to parties and I hate entertaining. We had to go to a wedding a couple of weeks ago, and although it was nice seeing relatives we haven’t seen in a while, I couldn’t wait to get home! In-e’s unite!!!

    I’m the biggest introvert on the face of the planet, but everyone around me thinks I’m an extrovert. Man do I have them all snowed. I guess my years in high school drama taught me a few things. Ha ha Funny thing is, I can stand in front of a huge filled auditorium and give a speech to hundreds of people, but I’m scared shit less to go into a restaurant to pick up a take out order. Go figure.

      I have the same problem. I’ve given big speeches but the thought of some mingling party makes my breathing freak out. LOL
