I am an enfp, but I am always 51% extrovert and 49% introvert, so it is pretty even.

Jam 7, Peanut Butter 5, and Bread 2.

I'm an introvert in most areas of my life, but in work I'm an extrovert.

Honestly, I can be either. In the extreme. I'm dominantly an introvert (hermit like), but have bouts and phases of extroversion (manic/depressive cycles...very high highs and very low lows).

Wasn't really an option for that (as though I *can* be both, it's not a middle-of the-road median type thing), so I voted 'other'.

Somewhere in the middle I suspect. In social situations I can enjoy myself and be outgoing, but generally I crave solitude or just family.

WOW! We are an introverted bunch, looking at the results. I voted for in between. When tested, I came out as an INTJ.

I'm definitely in-between, depending on the situation and the crowd. I used to be an introvert, but I've made great strides to change that in the past 15 years

I fall almost in the middle with a lean more toward the introvert.

Since we're telling our Meyer'sBriggs personalities.... I am ISTJ... totally to one extreme. DH is totally opposite ENFP, to the full other side of the scale.

I am introverted in groups over 4. But, I can teach in front of 60+ people with no problem.

I'm an extroverted introvert. I'm comfortable being extroverted and social, but prefer to be alone and quiet. I'm much more extroverted irl than online-for some reason I don't feel the need to say much online?

Definitely an introvert. Especially because my social skills are kinda crappy, and I often don't really know what to say to people. I don't like it, because I know for a fact that this makes me come off completely wrong sometimes. People think I am bored, disgruntled or even miserable, when I couldn't be further from those things, I just don't know what to say. Plus at the same time, my mind is usually going at a mile a minute. If I'm around people I know well, I can be a lot more extroverted and just relax and be silly, but it takes quite awhile for me to be that comfortable with someone.

Yeah, I definitely do better online. In fact I ramble so much online that I think it makes me boring. I just find it so much easier to say what I want to say. Though I'm still quiet and awkward IRL, regardless. Sigh. I don't let it stop me from doing things too much, though. I still try and meet new people and socialize as much as I can, I just feel a little funny about it. But I'm working on that!
