extraversion

a few weeks ago, i took this personality test (thanks Cassi for putting up the link) and i thought it would be fun to a 5 post series on the results. here is the first.

I am an extrovert.
"You appear to be more extraverted than most people. Extraversion is characterized by positive emotions, surgency, and the tendency to seek out stimulation and the company of others. The trait is marked by pronounced engagement with the external world and experiencing more positive feelings than many others. Extraverts enjoy being with people, and are often perceived as full of energy. They tend to be enthusiastic, action-oriented individuals who are likely to say "Yes" to new opportunities. In social groups they like to talk and tend to be more assertive than others."

i kind of want to pat myself on the back or stand up and take a bow because of this result. because i used to be painfully shy. i didn't talk to people unless i had to. boys terrified me.
now i like to think of myself as an extrovert by choice. i can be very social and outgoing- the life of the party- if i choose to be. but i still have some of my intovert characteristics (courtesy of my younger days). i like coming home to an empty apartment sometimes. i choose to study by myself (because i get too distracted if i am with someone else). i can definitely go places by myself- i don't have be to surrounded by people at all times.
however the extrovert in me always wants to be doing something on the weekend. i will push myself to do social things even if it means no sleep. i like talking to people and making new friends. i like planning, throwing and attending parties. i like being around friends. i'm (usually) not afraid to be myself.
