Are you a Introvert or a Extrovert and are you proud or not proud to be one?

I'm definitely an Introvert but sometimes I can be an Extrovert, it just depends and sometimes I can be proud of being a Introvert, sometimes I can't :) So which one are you?

Introvert- A shy, reticent person

Extrovert- An outgoing, overtly expressive person

  • Definitely more of an extrovert, and im proud of it overall.

    There are cons to being an extrovert, and I do experience them. With so many people these days being introverted, being extroverted does tend to make these people freeze up and get uncomfortable. Probably because Im the type that is "instantly comfortable" with people, and introverted people may need more time to "warm up" to people.

    Even on GaG, when I private message people, I could tell I intimidate people with this "instant comfort" I have. I very much, HIGHLY doubt, that most GaGers are THAT painfully shy with everyone... so it has to be my "in your face" personality. :-P

  • I am both. And I am proud of myself.
    Life is strange and human beings are strange too. Our moods can change quickly. So I can be both; depending on sitiuation :)

  • First I would like to note that being an introvert has nothing to do with being shy or not. Even though an introvert can be shy it's not a prerequisite for being an introvert.

    On a fundamental level an introvert is simply someone who is energized by being alone where he or she likes the ability to be with their own thoughts and ideas undisturbed. An introvert usually dislike being with people simply because other people tend to distract them and drain them of energy. But when an introvert chooses to be outgoing he can be the most outgoing and expressive of the bunch. An introvert simply chooses when and when not to be.

    An extrovert would be someone who get energized by being around other people and being alone makes them bored, restless and sometimes even depressed.

    That being said, I would guess I'm on the far end of introverted. It's not something I would be proud of but I simply find it an enjoyable state of being where always trying to interact with other people seems tiresome. An extrovert would obviously say the opposite where the willingness to be alone seems very boring.

    It's a fundamental difference and both types have their pros and cons.

    • Thanks for telling me that :)

    • You are welcome.
      I'm not trying to be a smart ass here but the misconception that an introvert should be some shy, anti-social and low self esteem kind of individual is so wide spread and I'm simply trying to set the record strait and actually give the introverted the credit they deserve :)

    • It's ok I understand

  • I would say that I'm a little bit of a mixture of both but leaning more towards extroverted.

    If i'm around a group of people i don't really know, but the people in that specific group all know each other, that's when i'm a bit quiet but i would occasionally speak.

    However if i am around friends and people i know, I am quite the loud lad. I would comment on everything, i would be chattering and messing around quite a lot.

    My actions in general are extroverted for example, the way i walk, the way i talk, the way i give eye contact to people and communicate. This wasn't natural for me, infact i had to build and train myself to be self confident like that.

    I wasn't born an extrovert. I was willing to change because it just seemed better for me and i decided to do something about it. Turns out I'm doing this quite well.

  • I'm introverted that can be outgoing at times.

    From what I've learned, introverts = people that need to be alone to "recharge.."

    Extroverts = "recharge" by being around other people.

  • I'm an introvert, I don't think it's anything to be proud of. I'm not ashamed because of it, but I think it's good to be sociable. I certainly envy people who can just walk up to anyone anywhere and get a conversation going.

  • I first voted in the poll and I wanted to start this opinion saying that it made me sad to see all the votes that were in the "introvert, but not proud to be one" section. I'm an extrovert, but I see such beauty and depth in introverts that I see lacking in myself. Somehow, society has given us an idea that it is ideal to be talkative, around people all the time, and has equated extrovertedness to confidence.
    First, because an extrovert may lean to be more talkative or outgoing, they may miss the cues or feelings of others. While introverts seem to be very observant and can more easily empathize. Extroverts can get in trouble with being rash or speaking to quickly things that shouldn't be spoken. Introverts are slow to speak, and speak with wisdom, something that I admire.
    Of course, none of this is to say that extroverts can't have these qualities. I just have found that it's more common among introverts. My overall message is that we are all different, and that introverts rule!

  • I'm an extrovert when I'm with a group of people/lots of people, but if I'm just with another person I can be a bit introverted/shy. I like to be an extrovert, because I'm pretty much never bored and I feel like people don't forget about me xD Okay that sounded so weird.
