Question of the Month

I'm participating in Question of the Month By Life Examined. The question is, "Are you introverted or extroverted?" 
 
I'm so introverted. 
 
There are times when I want to shut the world off. I'm an art instructor. The days where I'm in the classroom it's hard coming home to 2 crazy loud boys that like to make lots of sound effects, and talk non stop. Oh I do love them. I want to yell out at times, "Shut up already!!!" I don't. I do have to stop them and say, "Ok I need time to think." or "Dad and I have to talk. Can you give us a moment?" 
 
When I was younger I could just play by myself for hours on end. I played dolls, Barbies, cut out my own family out of magazines, read, or played in the sand box. My kids are much more social than I am. Isaak doesn't like to play unless it's with someone else. Mica can play by himself, but he's most certainly a talker and sound effect maker!

Travis likes to go to art openings. You'd think because I'm artsy that I'd like to go to. I do. It's just that the social part of it I could do without. When we go the boys are with us, Travis socializes, and I spend time getting after the boys to not eat so much food, and be careful to not get too close to that pedestal, and so on. Gallery openings are the first Friday of the month. I teach on Fridays, my students are extra chatty on Fridays, so towards the end of the day I feel done. 

I'm not shy really. I can go up, and talk to random people. I can give an hour lecture, and not be nervous. When I was little I couldn't even order food at a fast food place. That's how shy I was.

I'm an introvert too, and can definitely relate!

I am a mixture of both, but lean more towards introvert. I do love being alone most days.

That DEFINITELY sounds like an introvert. Thanks for a great answer :)

I think I am a little bit of both. It all depends on the person and situation for me.
