I'm a strong introvert but I have learned to adapt in given situations.

I am a mix of both; it definitely depends on my mood.

I'd much prefer to be by myself, but I can also function in large group situations - I just don't like them as much.

Same here.

I prefer to be at home than out and about. When I am out with friends I tend to live it up.

Introvert all the way. Being crowded scares me. Going to conventions exhausts me for weeks afterward.

Depends on the situation with me. I am usually an introvert, however when I'm with my friends or family, I can be an extrovert.

I'm absolutely an introvert. I can function as an extrovert if I have to, but it takes a lot of energy and I'm exhausted afterward.

I am completely in agreement. I cant stand crowds or just large groups of people in general.

I have strong features of both. It's kinda confusing sometimes.

I chose "ambivert" but I had to train myself to get up to that level and being around other people still leaves me exhausted.

I am very introverted and I get more done when alone and such, or just being one-on-one with another. I love being around friends, but i really love my alone time, too.

Ditto.

I'm an extrovert and being around people gets me SO juiced, but I have two extreme panic disorders so I have to train myself to be an introvert as not to set them off. Not too hard when you're studying for med school all the time anyway :[ Girls just wanna have fun and party and bullshit and party and bullshit haha :]

I'm a mix between the two. I think introvert is more my natural personality though as that is what I usually fall back on, but when I am coaxed out of that my extrovert side can really shine. My husband is the same way..we often joke it's because we're both geminis so there is actually four personalities between us!

I honestly am not sure. I spend 99% of my time alone or with my partner, but I often long to get out and go to a local festival or concert, or to go to a party with friends. I think I am an ambivert, as I don't mind being alone and don't itch to be around others, but because of outside forces I spend so much time by myself.

I am a mix of both. I don't feed of being alone, but in school I tend to like more alone time so I can study is the only thing. I absolutely love being around people, but I'm not always loud and outspoken.

Actually shyness does not have anything to do with introversion, common misconception.

Maybe I should've voted ambi-. I like being at home and in the quiet, but I do enjoy going out with friends every now and then. I am pretty shy and quiet though until I get to know someone.

I'm still learning what type I am but right now I do get energized by being around others and yet I still need my alone time. I will probably always be that way.

Introversion / extroversion has to do with how you renew your energy, not necessarily how much you enjoy being around other people.

I have taken the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator three or four times and have continually scored as an INFJ (I am a perfect split between Perceiving and Judging, but in the event that you "tie," the standard is to go with J - Judging). But regarding the Introvert/Extrovert dichotomy, I am about as pure of an Introvert as they come. My score for the I (introversion) was extremely high while my score for E (extroversion) was practically non-existent. Despite this, I am not exactly a monk and no one has ever considered me shy when they meet me. I have no problem talking with strangers and am very friendly and outgoing with people in my day-to-day life.

Info about introverts/extroverts:

"The preferences for extraversion and introversion are often called as attitudes. Briggs and Myers recognized that each of the cognitive functions can operate in the external world of behavior, action, people, and things (extraverted attitude) or the internal world of ideas and reflection (introverted attitude). The MBTI assessment sorts for an overall preference for one or the other.

People who prefer extraversion draw energy from action: they tend to act, then reflect, then act further. If they are inactive, their motivation tends to decline. To rebuild their energy, extraverts need breaks from time spent in reflection. Conversely, those who prefer introversion expend energy through action: they prefer to reflect, then act, then reflect again. To rebuild their energy, introverts need quiet time alone, away from activity.

The extravert's flow is directed outward toward people and objects, and the introvert's is directed inward toward concepts and ideas. Contrasting characteristics between extraverts and introverts include the following:

* Extraverts are action oriented, while introverts are thought oriented.
* Extraverts seek breadth of knowledge and influence, while introverts seek depth of knowledge and influence.
* Extraverts often prefer more frequent interaction, while introverts prefer more substantial interaction.
* Extraverts recharge and get their energy from spending time with people, while introverts recharge and get their energy from spending time alone."

I used to be an extremely shy introvert with anxiety issues when I was younger and up to just a few years ago. Now thanks to an anti-anxiety medication I'm more of an extrovert. However, I do enjoy being alone sometimes and I need to practice introspection otherwise I lose myself in others big time.

Thank you very much for this info. It emphasizes that I am an introvert.

I tend to be more introvert, however that is changing. I am not changing it because I HAVE to or I WANT to. It just sort of happens. Maybe it is a new view on life that is spurring me into a new direction, maybe it is not.

I think most people are a mix of both; I am. There's just situations we'd rather go it alone, but other times we'll thrive off interactions of others.
