Introvert VS Extrovert
You Are An Extrovert!You have a ton of friends, perhaps more friends than anyone you know.
Nothing to do on Friday night? No problem for you to find the action.
You're friendly, easy to know, and you seem to get along with almost everyone.
You love to express yourself - and everyone knows a good deal about you.
Whether you're giving your opinion or sharing your dreams, you don't keep anything in.
Are You An Extrovert or Introvert? Take This Quiz :-)
I found this tiny little quiz from Coolcatalyst's Jottings, and I gave it a try. The result? I mostly agree with it. Mostly.
Most of the time, I really am an extrovert. I don't mind taking the initiative to talk to a stranger in any given parties, and I think I am pretty good at initiating a conversation; I prefer being straightforward when it comes to expressing my minds, rather than having someone else to conjecture what's in me, which is something I loathe; I don't play passive role in all the relationships that I value, be it friendships, families, or even my romance (but that doesn't mean that Mr.Tomato is the passive one, either); I endeavor to keep in touch with my friends (solid friendships need earnest effort) ; I don't usually hide myself, for I would laugh when I'm happy, and I would shed my tears when I am feeling upset. Needless to say, I would definitely share my stories with all my love ones. The verdict was so true that I think the people who cares about me really knows a good deal about me, and I usually don't keep anything in. I like things to be simple, especially when it comes to communication. By the way, who said men are born to surmise what's in a woman's mind? Yes, women are somehow more complicated than men when it comes to sentimental thoughts, and admittedly, the mood swings. Yet, this does not grant female the rights to be a creature powered by emotions. Rather, it is an opportunity for us to develop a better way to communicate with men about our sentiments.
I said I mostly agree with the verdict. I said so because I'm not an absolute extrovert. There are times that I would get so shy to face people. There are times, though minority, that I would prefer to cut myself out from the real world, in the name of 'decompressing' myself. Perhaps that's what people meant for 'meditation'. I realize as I grow older, I require more of these 'unwinding' sessions. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that I'm not a tough person. I can't face death, I can't face horror, I can't face tragic events ... I know there is no Utopia, but despite of all the previous overwhelming odds, I've tried to remain optimistic. I guess being introvert momentarily would assist me in regaining my strength to move forward. At least, I hope so.
Just, something to share.
