The Results...Both

The introverted part of me; I like to be alone with myself and my thoughts sometimes. I do get overwhelmed at times being amongst other people. I consider myself a little shy, but once I get to know you and the feelings are mutual; trust is established..Then the next step is mysterious....:)

The extroverted part of me..Yes I can blend and have some fun with people. I don't like to be conceited, but I can be hearty dominate by being impulsive doing something base on urge in a social atmosphere.

I try to take this quiz down below, but I couldn't answer without marking both choices of the quiz. So I must be both introverted and extroverted. What a mix combination...

Here is a simple rule-of-thumb I was taught years ago: If being around people generally tires you, then you are an introvert. If being around people generally exhilarates you, then you are an extrovert.

I am a person who relates well to others, and enjoys my interaction with people -- but by the end of the day, I am exhausted and I NEED that "down time." The Counseling Professor who gave me that rule-of-thumb told me that I was probably "an introvert with good social skills." You sound somewhat similar in your description of yourself.....
