When I was in Primary School I remember one of my teachers writing on my report card “She has got to learn to mix with her classmates better.”

When I was a teenager my sister used to tell me that I was an introvert. No she doesn’t mean it in a bad way. She was just saying what she thought was a fact. I was shy and quiet and I suppose that makes me an introvert? My sister is on the other end of the scale. She is not only an extrovert. She is a party animal! Hahaha. (Whatever we both may be, I love my sister dearly and we get along great.)

When I was an adult I was asked this question during an interview. “Are you an introvert of extrovert?” to which I thought I cleverly replied. “I’m neither and introvert nor an extrovert but in between.”  And then I went on to illustrate why I’m neither and why that trait would make me the right person to hire. Lol! (The things you say during an interview….)

So… introvert or extrovert? Which is better? I think most people have the idea that its better to be an extrovert rather than to be an introvert living inside a shell. I beg to differ. I think there is nothing wrong to preferring your own company to the company of others.

However of course the best of all is to be a balance, neither one extreme nor the other but to be in the middle of the scale which I think most people are. So where am I in the scale? I think I would tip a little towards introversion because I don’t like large crowds of people. They make me uncomfortable. I don’t like making small talk with strangers and I’m rarely the live and soul of a party. But I’m a warm, caring and friendly person even though I may sometimes appear cold and indifferent. So don’t ever judge a book by its cover. Hehe.

What are you? Introvert or extrovert or in between? Can you share with me? I would like to know if I can tell a person’s personality from their blog. Can you tell mine?
