The Top Ten

1 Do you feel relaxed or stressed in social events?

It depends. If it's a social event with only people I know and with a small group of people in it, I'm chill. But ignore it's like a rave, or those crazy ass parties or just events where I'm only with my family or alone, I feel stressed as hell. - Myuuu

Introverts generally feel stressed and want to go home in such situations whereas extroverts see this as an opportunity to go, interact with many people and have a good time. - styLIShT

Depends. Usually I'm quite relaxed, especially when I'm with a lot of other people I know well. - Entranced98

Stressed, doesn't matter if it's a family or non-family event

2 Do you give importance to understanding the world or changing the world?

There are a lot of thing that I would change in the world, but I can't so I think it's more important to understand the world around us, people, cultures and everything else - Myuuu

I'm what they call an ambivert, meaning I have both extroverted and introverted traits. Like for this question, I give importance to both honestly - cjWriter1997

This is probably the best way to distinguish between extroverts and introverts, as introverts would easily prefer the former, and extroverts would prefer the latter. - styLIShT

Changing the world. - 3DG20

3 If you were asked to convey a matter or give something to 50 people, would you gather them in a place to take necessary action or do it one-by-one?

Introverts aren't good with lots of people, so they prefer to take things one-on-one. Extroverts would prefer to gather everyone and get their job done in such situations. - styLIShT

One-by-one it's easier - Myuuu

One-by-one - htoutlaws2012

4 Do you constantly get anxious over the things that you said in the recent and/or distant past?

Extroverts are generally easygoing and say almost anything that comes to mind, unlike introverts, who seriously debate within their head as to whether or not they should say something. - styLIShT

If I'm with friends I don't really care much but I still think before saying. - Myuuu

Think intensely before speaking something - htoutlaws2012

I like to think first. - Entranced98

6 Do you feel comfortable or stressed while working in groups?

Extroverts generally feel comfortable with group work, unlike introverts who feel uncomfortable working in groups, and prefer working solo. - styLIShT

Usually pretty comfortable if my group isn't giving me a hard time or leaving me to do all the work while they do nothing but mess about. God I hate that. - Entranced98

Stressful in groups rather be a lone wolf. - htoutlaws2012

Depends of who I'm working with - Myuuu

7 Can you sit simply for long hours, occupied by your thoughts without feeling bored?

Introverts can easily do this, but some of them end up crying if they think about life more than a minute, still such people too don't see socialising with others as a good alternative nor do they get bored. - styLIShT

Sit simply for long hours - htoutlaws2012

YES. I do that all the time, I go from weird scenarios and what I would or should do to how would I fix a fanfic that I red before - Myuuu

Depends on what I’m thinking about.

8 Are you usually considered as an aloof or an emotional/friendly person?

Introverts are usually considered aloof, they frequently get comments like 'Why do you look so intense? ', unlike extroverts, who are usually seen as outgoing and friendly. - styLIShT

An emotional/friendly person, one that can go over there rockers at times, but is mostly respected for what he does on a daily basics. - htoutlaws2012

I am a friendly lovefrombadlands.

9 Would you rather think first or act first?

This is an obvious and straightforward question, as introverts tend to think before acting, unlike extroverts. I'm not saying that extroverts are inferior, as there are a lot of situation where urgent action is necessary, which extroverts are probably good at handling. - styLIShT

Both, depends on whats happening.

Think first - htoutlaws2012

This is also a pretty straightforward question, because introverts are generally reserved and extroverts are generally outgoing. - styLIShT

I can be reserved though I'm generally a very energetic cheerful person, even when I'm not with people!

For a longest time a reserved bench warmer... lately I have become more of an outgoing personality. - htoutlaws2012
