Extrovert or Introvert?

Recently my daughter told me about a book she read called Quiet. Its about introverts. I always saw myself as more of an extrovert so I took the test. You can take it here. Turns out I'm an ambivert. I guess that explains all the book reading. I notice a lot of people on the internet especially facebook are actually introverts so if you think you are going to make lots of friends off the internet forget it! That is why I left facebook. People only want to talk to you in cyberspace. They are the type that answer emails at their leisure and take voice mail instead of picking up the phone. That drives me nuts. Not only do I want to talk to you on the phone, I want you to come over and stay for hours. Is that a thing of the past? I need to find some extroverts or some ambiverts. How about you? Where do you fit in? Have you read this book? Do you think introverts need more respect? Or are you a social butterfly living in this new everybody let's hide behind the computer/cellphone world?


  1. interesting post! i thought things like cellphones and internet make people even MORE social because they can constantly be talking to someone even when home alone. but you're right it can work the opposite way and make them antisocial if it makes them avoid face to face contact. i think being ambivert is ideal, best of both worlds! so good for you hehe :)

  2. Salaams,
    Very interesting post.Apparently I am an I-introvert(according to that test). I like to think of myself as an introvert with a side helping of extrovert.:D.
    I do like to talk face to face with people and answer my phone quickly. I hate being forwarded to voicemail too.
    That sounds like an interesting book.

    On a side note- the friend I mentioned has had a sort of family medical crisis and hopefully she will mail you when things settle down.

  3. As-salaamu'alaykum sis,
    Haha..interesting test. I'm an introvert, but I already knew that. Haven't heard of that book, I should check it out.
