    See for me, I CAN talk to people (my mom's motto is "does it matter if you're shy or uncomfortable? How do you think THEY feel?"), but I am so exhausted afterward. I have even been called outgoing...but that's not really me. I DO enjoy a party, but that's not how I recharge. When I'm feeling tired or depressed, I tend to seek solitude, unlike my extrovert sister who seeks people to talk to to enliven her.

    What annoys me is when extroverts try to force introverts to be like them
    "You HAVE to go to parties and socialize!"

    Imagine if we said to an extrovert"You are not allowed to socialize for a couple of weeks, it will be good for you!"

    I took a personality test with some of my friends.

    They all tested positive, showing they had indeed caught a personality somewhere.

    Luckily my test came back negative.

    People don't bother with me anymore. I tend to laugh and say, "No I don't."

    INFP, always have been. Shakespeare is judged to be one, so I'm in good company. I agree with the results. The description of the personality traits sound like me.

    You and I are in some mighty fine company. I only wish I were as imaginative as many of the people on this list, or as good as Fred Rogers and Albert Schweitzer. You missed Kurt Cobain as one of the addicted.

    They're not necessarily 100% accurate. Some people don't fit into defining boxes very well

    The manifesto in post #1 came from that book. I'm not done reading the book yet but it makes a lot of sense. :-)

    Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph the carpenter, as he was on earth? I would venture to bet an introvert...If you were perfect and everyone around you seemed to be outdoing themselves to see how sinful they would be, do you think it would give you happiness and energy to be around them? But as for Jesus Christ, the glorified God-man who sits at the right hand of God, I doubt he's any of them...since everyone gets their energy from worshiping the LORD in Heaven.
