Are You Actually An Introvert?
You're an extrovert. A crowd pleaser. A social butterfly. You walk into a room with confidence and are immediately comfortable with your surroundings. So, no...you're not actually all that much of an introvert. But you're awesome anyway!
You've got some introverted tendencies, but you can totally thrive in social situations. You're able to control yourself well in big crowds and people can generally rely on you as someone to hang out with, although you occasionally need to take a break and be alone. You do you, man!
You're definitely pretty introverted. Large crowds can be intimidating to you, and you need plenty of alone time to help compensate for those times when you are in big social situations. Either way, you're the best!
There's no question — you are an introvert through and through. Alone time is perhaps the most important thing in your life, and the thought of going to a large party causes you to shudder in fear. But just because you're an introvert doesn't mean you don't love your life; you just know that, many times, life is best lived alone.
