    I prefer to be alone rather than carry on the weigh of the world. I am too independent that I can go to the mall alone, eat by myself, and won't brag about my boyfriend whenever he doesn't want to see me. But hey I am friendly, I just love myself that much.

    Definitely an introvert. Probably not an uncommon answer given this is an online forum. I'm also a computer guy, I need to take a drink of water if I talk for more than two minutes to another person trying to help them out or answer a question haha.

    I also have social anxiety issues but I don't think they factor a lot into my introverted demeanor. Even if I weren't socially anxious, I definitely wouldn't be an extrovert.

    I don't consider myself any of them. I have periods of my life where I feel more introverted and times when I feel more extroverted. Lately I've been introverted because of a stalker, but I'm starting to become more extroverted as I heal.

    Not really sure what to define myself as. Maybe a sociable introvert? I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but I definitely like to stick to my familiar faces and I can be anxious and aggressive in crowded public spaces, however if I do not leave the house and go see people or do things then within a day or two I become very fed up and depressed. I suppose I am just someone who needs a balance of social interaction with personal space.

    Introvert, but once I know someone well I will talk forever, as long as it's a 1 on 1 conversation. The record was 12 straight hours of talking with no breaks, neither of us realized how long it had been at the time.

    The results are interesting. Perhaps queer people are introverted because of societal prejudice and discrimination.

    Professionally, I'm pretty extroverted.

    But personally, I have my group of 9-10 friends and am content with just them.

    Social Introvert. I can love social interaction, but don't have many friends, hate small talk, and at the end of a busy day I just want to game or sit online rather than actually deal with people lol

    It really depends on who I'm around at the time.

    Introvert. I hate being around large groups of people, and it takes me a long freaking time to talk to people. I think I didn't have a real conversation with anybody at work until I'd been there for a month. And I don't like being around people very long. Even when we have company over, I'll go hang out for a little bit but then I just like to be left alone. I'm not a people person and I don't often have much to say around them.

    Random but related story: I had someone ask me once why I was so quiet. It was actually someone else who told the guy that I don't talk unless I actually have something meaningful to say. I don't talk just for the sake of making small talk.

    I think it's less that and more the fact that people who would tend to congregate on an online venue like this tend to be introverted. I would actually say that among the queer people I know most are extroverted like myself.

    I am right in the middle. More introverted when I'm uncomfortable or in a big crowd

    I've always been an introvert, but as I grow older, I seem to lean more towards ambivert, though. it's pretty surprising.

    Introvert - it's both a curse & a blessing. Always been a shy kid (with moments of being outgoing & a wild child at the same time). When I started high school, I kind of just became more & more of it...

    I'm an introvert, but I learned to fake extroversion pretty well. Enough that people who don't know me past the surface sometimes think that's how I naturally am. I'm actually quite shy about meeting new people, and the amount of superficial interactions I have day-to-day at work drains me (I like people, I just wish I had fewer, more meaningful interactions).

    Definite introvert right here. I think more than I speak. I prefer meaningful discussions as opposed to just talking for the sake of talking. Prefer small groups. Social anxiety when meeting large groups of new people. Takes time to open up to people. I need alone time to recharge after social gatherings with people I don't know. According to (some) tests, I'm about 75/25 introvert/extrovert.

    Not gonna lie, I still like raves, going out with friends to populated city areas, and not being alone all day.
