Introvert? Extrovert? or Ambivert? Which spectrum do you fall under?

#introvert #introversion #extroversion #personalitytype #ambivert

Just to let you know I’m offering a free Session till 18th of March only for Introverts to talk about the problems they face because of introversion.

The more time I spent discussing these problems with women the more I realize that most of them were unsure whether they’re introverts or just have a self-confidence or conflict issues. (Yes! it’s not the same)

So, in this article I wanted to share a questionnaire with you to help you assess whether you fall on the introvert or the extrovert spectrum.

This questionnaire is taken from the book –

“Quiet – The power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking” – By Susan Cain.

If you’re an introvert this book has a ton of information that can do you a lot of good!

Alright, let’s start assessing –

Answer each question “true” or “false”, choosing the answer that applies to you more often that not.

  1. ________ I prefer one-on-one conversations to group activities.

  2. ________ I often prefer to express myself in writing.

  3. ________ I enjoy Solitude

  4. ________ I seem to care less than my peers about wealth, fame and status

  5. ________ I dislike small talk, but I enjoy talking in-depth about conversations that matter to me

  6. _______ People tell me I’m a good listener.

  7. _______ I’m not a big risk-taker

  8. _______ I enjoy work that allows me to “dive-in” with few interruptions

  9. _______ I like to celebrate birthday’s on a small scale with just one or two close friends or family members

  10. _______ People describe me as "soft-spoken" or "mellow"

  11. . _______ I prefer not to show or discuss my work with others until it’s finished.

  12. _______ I dislike conflict

  13. _______ I do my best work on my own

  14. _______ I tend to think before I speak

  15. ______ I feel drained after being out and about, even if I’ve enjoyed myself

  16. ______ I often let calls go through voicemail

  17. ______If I had to choose, I’d prefer a weekend with absolutely nothing to do to one with too many schedules.

  18. _______ I don’t enjoy multitasking

  19. _______ I can concentrate easily

  20. _______In classroom situations I prefer lectures to seminars

The more often you answered true, the more introverted you probably are. If you found yourself with a roughly equal amount of “true” and “false” answers, then you maybe an Ambivert – yes there is such a thing.
