Most people either identify as an introvert or an extrovert, but what about the people who identify as both, somehow? If you think you can just kind of call yourself anything you want, then take the quiz below to find out if you’re actually an extroverted introvert, or if you just can’t let introverts have their own thing, for once.
Do you consider yourself an introvert?
1: Yes, but I like interacting with people sometimes!
2: No, but being an extrovert sounds so annoying and unmysterious! I mean, I guess I’m not that mysterious, and sometimes I can be annoying, but still!
How often do you read?
1: All the time! It’s my one true solace.
2: I haven’t read a whole book since my senior year of high school, but I do read a LOT of articles!
Would you define yourself as a “people person”?
1: No, but I do enjoy meeting new people and spending time with my close friends.
2: Definitely! But not too much if that makes me seem too extroverted? I’ll say whatever you want me to say. Just please, tell me I’m both.
Have you ever considered a career in customer service, musical theater, real estate, or sales?
1: God, no! I’d have a nervous breakdown!
2: Ok, yes, but in a quiet, mysterious, ironic way? You know? Like, sometimes you’re talkative and sometimes you’re not? That makes me both, right? Right??
Mostly 1s: Looks like you’re a bookworm and a social butterfly! Being an extroverted introvert is rare, but you might be one of them! You’re probably just an introvert at the end of the day though, if we’re being completely honest.
Mostly 2s: You’re not an introverted extrovert – you’re just an extrovert who wants more attention, and no one is surprised! Maybe try letting introverts have their own thing for once — they obviously can’t speak up for themselves!
