In what ways am I not an extrovert?


Your Extroversion Profile:

Cheerfulness: Medium
Sociability: Medium
Excitement Seeking: Low
Friendliness: Low
Activity Level: Very Low
Assertiveness: Very Low



Yes, yEs, yeS, but I'm friendlier then that. I'm just not in your face about it and I'm assertive when it counts.

So did I, mine came out similar to yours:

Cheerfulness:Medium
Friendliness:Medium
Sociability:Medium
Assertiveness:Low
Activity level:Very Low
Excitement Seeking:Very Low

No surprises there, then! I'd say that's about right.

I would have been Very High in all, but " assertiveness, " but being married to an INTJ has tempered me. I enjoy being with calm, introspective people like my INTJ hubby. Being with people like me is like eating chocolate cheesecake: it's intensely delicious for a time, but after a bit, I need to push the plate away.

Do you think being married to another introvert has kept you as introverted as you were, or perhaps made you more-so? Just a thought.

Another thought: I think 2 intorverts get on better than 2 extroverts. Especially over the long haul.

Jill, I like that analogy "Being with people like me is like eating chocolate cheesecake: it's intensely delicious for a time, but after a bit, I need to push the plate away."

I don't think that being married to an INTJ has necesarily caused me to be more introverted. However, it's allowed me realize and plan for it. Until a few years ago a great deal of my time was spent with extroverts. I enjoy being around extroverts. I'm always much more adventurerous when I'm with them and have great experiences, but it's very important to realize that I would truely need to time away by myself.

Right now I have few if any extroverts in my life, except for co-workers and I miss them. I find it impossible to create a social circle that envolves my husband. I need a social group, while he really has no interest in it.

My INTJ husband doesn't care for a social life either. If I ever worry out loud about him not having buds, he tells me, " I don't need them, you're my best friend. And I have five kids - I have no extra time for friends. " So, his only social time occurs at church events, or holidays to which friends are invited, and while he thoroughly enjoys chatting with the other guys, that small bit of exposure seems to suffice. Meanwhile I spend as much time with friends as I can.

BTW, do you mind my asking, what is the health problem that prevents you from drinking coffee? Is decaf OK? I just can't imagine my life w/o it!

Still an introvert
