Definitely an extrovert, calm(sometimes), good-looking, sure of myself and what I am about to screw up.

Another introvert here! INFJ as well! It's interesting, the idea of presenting in front of groups/being outgoing while still being introverted. I teach yoga, and talk to people all day at my other job, and I enjoy both of my jobs but definitely need alone time to recharge.

I consider myself an ambivert but think I would more often be categorized as an extrovert. Technically my Myers Briggs personality type is ENTP, but the "E" and "I" are differentiated by like a single percentage point.

Introvert. But you wouldn't believe it if you met me.

I am the same, Veralisa. Some people argue with me about my introversion because I am so "outgoing" in front of a crowd (during presentations). Your post accurately aligned with my experiences as well. 

This is an interesting thread.

You might not always be able to pick an introvert out of a crowd. Both introverts and extroverts can be loud and laugh and have a good time. The difference is, the extroverts find an after party, the introverts go home as soon as humanly possible and then collapse in a People Hangover.

Extrovert, or at most ambivert leaning extrovert. I may sometimes need time alone to recharge, but I'm much more likely to be stressed by not having any generalist, large-group interaction than I am by being in a group. 

I definitely don't fit the internet stereotype of an introvert (which seems confused with social anxiety and/or the "empath" thing.)

I think this right here is why I wanted to pose the question. This idea people have that "introvert" means "shy." That it means "anxious." I can't even say for sure that introverts tend toward more issues with anxiety than extroverts do, though there are probably numbers from studies or surveys out there.

I have a dear friend who is an extreme extrovert. He is a very fun guy, loves to be the center of attention, talks non-stop, must be active in group activities all the time. He has mentioned to me that he is very uncomfortable with one-on-one conversations or situations that get too personal. 

So, yeah, I don't think we can make generalizations about who is shy, anxious, etc. just by their personality type.

Power to the introvert!! I love the internet as a way to make friends!! I'm a pure introvert, but I'm split 50/50 down the Meyers-Briggs' other three scales. And you are so right--the internet is a godsend for introverts from an energetic perspective. And I too have made my best friends online!! Such a blessing!! Having online friends even gave me the confidence to make some "in person" friends. I've also traveled to meet internet friends and have had more fun than imaginable. 

Yeah, I love the unicorns! Shout-out to the unicorns among us! 


I remember the first time I traveled across the country to meet an internet friend face-to-face. I was 22, and I HARDCORE lied to my parents, told them I was traveling to LA to meet up with some friends from college who were living and working there now. The next time I did it, about 4 years ago, I explained the situation, and my parents, husband, and brother thought I was going to be axe-murdered. Like, they were sure I was being catfished. But my nerdy sister-in-law, bless her heart, was like "Guys, chill. This is a thing people do."

Yeah!! I'm so on board with it. Online, you can find people who are a much better match for your personality, because it's a global environment! I'm a huge fan of the concept!! My super-great best friend lives in Prague, and visiting her last October was one of the greatest experiences of my life. Not just the trip, but that I know her in person now. 

I was also friends with an author who was small-press published, and he died of old age and cancer. I sobbed for a week. He was always emailing me with funny stories from his life, and he encouraged my writing, and I'd have given anything to have met him in person, but it wasn't to be. Cry But at least I knew him at all, right?
