If you’re in some way are interested in psychology, you’ve probably heard of the theory of introverts and extroverts. I’ve thought about this lately and which of those two I am so I decided to look into it a bit more and to take a test.
I did read a book about this a few years ago and I remember I found it hard to define myself to either one, for example:
“The introverted seen as extremely inward person. Is the disposition often silent
and aloof. Not impulsive in their actions and prefer an orderly and predictable
life. In school, they often do better than the extrovert and the possible defection from
the studies often depend on the psyche more than the studies themselves. They are
pain-sensitive and does not tolerate stress well, it lowers rather than heightens their
performance. They are not very impressionable, but know what they want. Prefer an intellectual humor in front of a more brazen move. Is usually less sexually active than the extrovert.”
In this description I can say yes when it comes to the inward bit, I do prefer a night home instead of a night out, I don’t answer well to stress but I do need a deadline to make something happen and I do know what I want. The other things isn’t that clear. And then we have the description o an extrovert:
“The extrovert is a typical social person who likes to socialize, has many friends and is happy at parties. They are impulsive, impressionable and not afraid of the unplanned, they have an ability to take things as they come. For the extroverted raises the excitement their performance as they like challenges. In cases where they drop off an education often depend on the study itself and nothing else. Their humor is often more brazen and black. They are often more sexually active than most people who are introverts.”
I do love to hit the party once in a while and do often find myself in the middle of the dance floor, I’m impressionable and often do things spontaneously and when it comes to humor it’s definitely black. When it comes to sex I simply say, no comment. 🙂
This is the result of my test, I just googled and picked one out of the blue it surely exists many more like this out there. Enjoy, and i posted a link to this test is down below.

Here’s the result, could work a bit on my thinking-feeling parameter but in some way it is what makes me being me, and the judge-perceiving parameter’s all so something to think about, I think I could use a little judgement sometimes to spare me some expensive lessons. Over all I think this was a good test and if you wish to have your own test here’s the link to the same test I took.
Have a great week!
