Last week’s topic: Plans for the future
I think as readers, many of us are introverts. We’d rather stay home on a Friday night and read a book rather than go out and party. Am I right?
So, am I an introvert or extrovert? For the most part, I am an introvert. 9 times out of 10 I am much more content staying in than going out. But, just because I’m an introvert does not mean I’m shy or quiet! Here’s a good explanation I found from Patricia Weber:
A common misconception is introverts are shy and quiet — however, that’s not always true. When the topic suits their fancy or when they’re around people with whom they are comfortable, introverts may talk non-stop.
This is so true for me! Also, while I’m not much of a talker with strangers, I have no problem speaking my mind.
Although, whether or not I act like an introvert or extrovert really just depends on the situation…
Times when I’m an introvert:
- With strangers
- In big crowds
- When I’m reading
I am not a people person. I clam up around strangers and I would rather go invisible in a big crowd than draw attention to myself. I can’t stand tons of eyes on me, and I’m socially awkward with new people because I never know what to say! And I think the reading kind of goes without saying…I don’t want to talk if I’m absorbed in a book, duh ;)
Times when I’m an extrovert:
- With friends
- With bookish people
- When I’m drinking
If you know me well enough, then I have no problem being crazy around you. When I’m with good friends I can sometimes be loud and obnoxious! With bookish people, I could start talking about books and never stop. I’ve never had any avid reader friends, so I tend to get a little excited when I have someone to talk books with! I’m also a very friendly drunk, haha. That rarely happens anymore, though, as I don’t go out and hang with people much anymore. I used to have a lot of friends that I partied with almost every weekend, and we were a rowdy bunch. But I drifted away from that group of people as well as the drinking. I’m not much of a social person these days, to be honest. I’m perfectly content to either stay home and read a book or spend time with my fiancé!
Your turn! Make your own post telling everyone whether you’re an introvert or extrovert and link up :)
