This lovely Saturday was supposed to culminate in a sleepover with two of my darlin lady friends. The whole thing fell apart, and I have a sneaking suspicion that it's my fault. 99% of the time, I require someone else's enthusiasm to get me out of the house. It's a strange phenomenon, because I'm used to being the enthusiastic person in the room. I AM enthusiastic, damn it. I encourage people. I ask ice breaking questions. I tell embarrassing stories about myself when the conversation is stalled.
All of those things, though, happen when I'm already out.
I've taken the Myers-Briggs test several times, and I've always come out as an extrovert.
- 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.
Where's the 'needs to be dragged out of the house kicking and screaming in order to be her extroverted self' detail?
I think this test needs to be updated.
