Question #5

26 Jan

This week’s question isn’t random. It’s something I really want to know. It came up when I acknowledged out loud that I need more quiet time than your average bear. I have a feeling a lot of writers feel the same way. A lot of my family. A lot of my friends. But we rarely talk about it, so here goes ~


Introvert or Extrovert? How do you know?

I believe it’s a spectrum, and no one fits neatly on either side … but I’m curious how you relate to the world, how you recharge, where you put yourself (or your pets!) on the spectrum, and maybe even … WHY.

On Friday, I’ll blog my own exploration. Will you join me with a comment or a link to your blog?


P.S. Thank you to Good Families Do for joining me every week!!! ❤

    Oh, I am an introvert though and through. INFJ. It’s been as clear as day since I was a little kid and always wanted to leave group events early, loved my quiet time and got snippy and cranky if I was around people for too long.

    Signs are pointing to my daughter being an introvert too, but I’ll let her decide for herself which she is!

      Let her decide for herself – yes! I made the mistake with my girl of suggesting she was an introvert and after about a year, she got really mad and started insisting she’s not an introvert. At the same time, she HAS gotten very socially engaged this year. So go figure. I let her define herself in all kinds of other ways. Guess I need to let go of this one, too. Thank you for commenting 🙂

    I’m very introverted.

      That’s the thing about writers a lot of times, isn’t it? How lovely that the Internet now offers a quiet way to connect!

    I describe myself as a sociable introvert – I socialise fairly constantly, but nearly always online from the comfort and solitude of my own home. I do enjoy spending time with people in real life, but I have never yet been sorry to get home and find myself alone. Without the internet, I think I would find things a lot harder, but it’s a miraculous gift for someone like me to be able to chat to friends and family at a moment’s notice, without having to expend the energy on leaving my safe little nest and going out into the big wide world.

      I definitely relate. I love being able to communicate by email especially — it allows me the time I need to put my thoughts in order. Chatting in a large group feels much harder, more competitive, requires me to be more “on,” thinking on my feet. I do enjoy groups, but I must have the energy! Thank you for commenting.
