I’m quite introverted too. Most of those apply to me as well 🙂

11 out of 23…I guess I’m a semi-introvert. I’ve been called an old soul since the 10th grade.

@BeeG35:  The only one I missed was 12. You’d rather be an expert at one thing than try to do everything. Not true, I like to have skills in anything I can. However, I will ficus on whatever skills are neccessary at the time and increase in those before others; does that count?

I never associated myself with being an introvert, but Im pretty sure I am!!

I’ve always known I’m an introvert and I’ve seen most of those before and identify with almost all of them. The one I haven’t seen before is the one about avoiding phone calls. I enjoy chats with friends and my parents but what that article said is true- I do have to prepare for them and usually call them back. Most of my close friends know how I am though so they usually text me and ask me to call them when I have a chance 🙂

I’m not a social butterfly, but I’ve never considered myself introverted. I’m surprised that I had as many as I did, 7.

I had 18… I think being with my extroverted fiance has helped me to be a little bit less introverted.

A tiny tiny bit.
(I’m perfectly fine with that, hahaha)

I can relate completely. I think my FI was confused that I didn’t have a huge posse of friends-because I don’t want or need it! I enjoy the friends I have but I need time alone more than anything to unwind.

I’m an introvert with ADD/ADHD.  My FI is a pure introvert.

He is attracted to the creative chaotic side of me…but I am not attracted to extroverts…i find them intimidating (and I think he would, too).

He is very focused, but neither of us would hit #12….me becuase i’m unable to focus on anything, him becuse he’s insanely smart so he likes to research things and dosn’t have enough time of the day to be an expert.

 

#13 is also iffy.  I wouldn’t seek out a show that would involve me getting up on stage, but I would take a small class that required me to be in front of the group if it came with the condition that I was getting more out of it.  And, while a packed church/hall is uncomfortable I love sing-alongs.

My FI is a mild introvert. I am slightly more introverted than he is. Every single one of those things is true for me except being in a relationship with an extrovert. I tried that, it doesn’t work for me. I like being with someone who understands why you’d need to leave a party after 4 hours.

People often have a severe misunderstanding as to what introversion is. They say “oh you aren’t introverted because you are so outgoing” or “you dont’ seem shy at all” – ugh. I’m not shy, I’m very friendly, and I don’t have problems speaking with people. I’m just introverted. Social interaction is draining for me.
