Introvert - what kind are you?

Are you an introvert?

If so, did you know that there are 4 kinds of introversion?

In today’s article, I’ll help you get the bottom of the latest discovered science of personality traits.

I am not an introvert myself, but I love personality psychology and as a life-coach, it really helps to understand the makeup of the people that I serve.

Up till 2012, Introversion was totally misunderstood and considered a behavioral defect in the makeup of the human’s personality psychology.

But, that’s no longer the case, thanks largely to Susan Cain‘s bestseller book Quiet.

Quiet has changed the way we think of introversion as we know it.

If you haven’t read the book, I highly recommend it!

But enough about introversion, today I want you to zero in on what type of an introvert are you so you can better understand yourself and help you interact with others more effectively.

Here is a quiz that will help you determine which one of the 4 different types of introverts are you.

Are you ready? Let’s Play:

Out of curiosity I took the test myself and apparently even if I am an introvert, I am the social kind which is sooooo me 🙂

I love being with people and I feel deep connection to the world around me so the results came in exactly as I thought they would be, here are my results:

Zane, you are the Social Introvert.

People often get confused when you claim that you are an introvert because of how social you are.

It’s not that you don’t enjoy being around people, it’s more about you having very specific preferences about which people you’d like to be around.

You also value spending time alone to recharge your batteries and get yourself back focused.

You make sure to plan ahead so that you have plenty of quiet time to do things you enjoy like reading, spending time with your pets, etc.. However when you’re in your social mode, you are at ease with your surroundings.

You are a loyal and attentive friend, and tend to have strong and intimate relationships.

That would be so me if I were an introvert!
