Introvert Or Wranky

When I was in treatment for my eating disorder, they made us take personality tests to help guide our treatment plan. Sounds kinda wacky, but it actually was really helpful. One of the tests was called a character-temperament inventory, where you could figure out if you are an introvert or an extrovert, and then they based an entire weekly group off of your test results. What I learned is that introversion and extraversion are not necessarily based off of bubbliness or how well we do in a crowd- it’s based off of what we do to recharge. Extroverts, when they need to recharge and refocus, need to be around other people to gain energy. Introverts need alone time to recharge. For me, I was surprised to find out that I am an introvert, mainly because I’m a Leo and the youngest child, so I can charm almost any group of people if I have to (not bragging, just facts), but people ZAP me of my energy- being around a group of people is draining because I lend myself to everyone. I MUST have alone time to regroup, or I will freak out and have panic attacks. So technically, I’m an introvert. You could say I am a social introvert, since stereotypically, introverts are known to be shy, and I am not, but that’s kind of a moo point. Maybe that helps bit? I spent years being a “yes” person and denying my true introvert nature, and it was disastrous!!
