I - Introversion
25% of population. "Draw energy" from solitary activities or ones with few or no other people.
Like quiet for concentration. Tend to be careful with details. Dislike sweeping
statements. Have trouble remembering names and faces. Tend not to mind working on one project for a long time uninterruptedly. Are interested in the idea behind their job. Dislike telephone intrusions and interruptions. Like to think a lot before they act, sometimes without acting. Work contentedly alone. Have some problems communicating.
- Rehearse things before saying them and prefer that others would do the same; you
often respond with "I'll have to think about that" or "Let me tell you later.".
- Enjoy the peace and quiet of having time to yourself; you find your private time
too easily invaded and tend to adapt by developing a high power of concentration that
can shut out TV, noisy kids, or nearby conversations.
- Are perceived as "a great listener" but feel that others take advantage of you.
- Have been called "shy" from time to time; whether or not you agree, you may come
across to others as somewhat reserved and reflective.
- Like to share special occasions with just one other person or perhaps a few close friends.
- Wish that you could get your ideas out more forcefully; you resent those who blurt
out things you were just about to say.
- Like stating your thoughts or feelings without interruption; you allow others to do
the same in the hope that they will reciprocate when it comes time for you to speak.
- Need time to "recharge" alone after you've spent time socializing with a group; the
more intense the encounter, the greater the chance you'll feel drained afterwards.
- Were told by your parents to "go outside and play with your friends"; when you were
a child; your parents probably worried about you because you liked to be by yourself.
- Believe that "talk is cheap"; you get suspicious if people are too complimentary,
or irritated if they say something that's already been said by someone else. The phrase "reinventing the wheel" may occur to you as you hear others chattering away.
