Introvert or Extrovert?

Post by greezy » Sat Jul 11, 2015 6:22 pm

Okay, first of all I admit it's a bit creepy to ask Frank a question directly. But as someone dealing with social phobia for close to 50 years and is a recently avowed militant introvert, I must ask. Frank, have you ever taken a Meyers Briggs Test or the like? Do you consider yourself an Extrovert, ambiovert or introvert?

Uh, I think this question hovers between being irrelevant and overly personal as it goes.
Shows? All of em.

Overly personal. I'll take that one. Irrelevant? As irrelevant as air. ;)

It may be highly relevant to you personally, and indeed to Frank personally, but in the context of his relationship with anyone either on here or even 'IRL', I don't think results of any test or any internal view on your own personality type are really relevant unless you wish to make them so.

Maybe as a 'recently avowed militant introvert' you have chosen to be defined by this tag, I just don't think everyone else wishes the same.

I find the most interesting definition of Introvert/Extravert is "How do you recharge your batteries".

I'm quite extravert in a lot of ways but when I'm feeling drained I just like being by myself with a book or a guitar for an hour or two.

I have friends who are shy on the surface but recharge by spending time with energetic people.

For what it's worth, I recently got interested in the Myers Briggs test and read through the description of every single personality "type" and none of them fit me particularly well. Humans are far too complicated to be slotted into one of sixteen boxes.
That said, I find it hard to imagine that anyone who makes a living singing extremely personal songs to large audiences could possibly be an introvert.

I asked because Frank's songs are very introspective.

I have to say that I find the label "ambivert" or whatever kind of ridiculous, because doesn't it mean that sometimes you are introverted and sometimes you're more extraverted? That describes a solid 99% of people.

I always asked myself: "Which career to choose, if I'm an introvert?"... If you have the same question, just refer to http://skywritingservice.com/blog/extro ... ect-career to find the right answer to your query.
