    Not sure if someone else has posted this but I thought this was cute. I feel like I'd prefer a pokeball over a hamster ball.

    Anyone read this book?
    http://www.amazon.com/Quiet-Power-Introverts-World-Talking/dp/0307352145

    One question that I have always had about the difference between introverts and extroverts is if the two personality styles can be learned. I'm extremely extroverted most of the time, but have introverted moments (like this weekend where I just want the whole thing to myself)... so I often wonder if the two "camps" can learn the pluses from each other.

    This book changed the perception of my self. I felt extremely validated after reading it.

    It's in the ballpark, but not completely accurate. I'm an introvert, and I do find social interaction exhausting, but I don't find extroverts obnoxious. I like have an extrovert to hang out with. I'm often attracted to opposites.

    according some of those personality tests, I'm an introvert who acts like an extrovert for the most of the times.
    um I don't even know...

    Yeah same here. I just don't like interacting with a large group of people. I just enjoy spending time with a single person at a certain social outing.

    As a true introvert, I can say this is quite accurate.

    As another introvert, I also find it accurate. However, when I am around others, they are usually extroverts, but not always obnoxious, in my mind. I get bored easily in group settings.

    I am a product of an extremely introverted father (rarely talked) and an extremely extraverted mother (rarely shut up) so I was exposed to both personality types while growing up. I took after my dad (I did not talk much until the age of 3), but I have always gotten along well with very extraverted, sociable people due to my Mom's influence.

    I have become more extraverted as I have matured out of necessity (mainly due to my work). At my very core though I will always be an introvert. I still feel uncomfortable in new social situations, and I never, ever seek out the company of others when I am depressed or under a lot of stress (e.g. death of a parent).

    I'm the same way. I do think that extroverts don't seem obnoxious if I know them. It's when I don't really know them that they come across as obnoxious.

    The introvert is a self-absorbed little snowflake. Always walk on eggshells around him. Avoid discussing daily concerns, because he scorns this as "small talk". Recognize that at any moment he will turn pissy and cut you out, at teast for a long period of time, possibly forever. Accept that you will never have any warning when he is about to do this. Blame yourself for having violated his hamster ball without knowing where its frontiers are.

    I just posted a non - communicative gay gays thread and this answers some questions. . Bottom line is that introverts are so concerned about being social lazy asses that they expect the top to spend more than his share of energy to make a connection. Really? That's being a total douche .

    I may be an introvert, but I'm far from being self-absorbed and I'm not the type that gets pissy. If I get in a bad mood, depressed, etc., I tend to want to deal with the problem on my own rather than drag anyone else into it. I'm far from lazy. I work my hardest (farm work) when I work alone and get much more accomplished than if I'm working alongside someone.

    I'm not sure what TOP has to do with anything... about introversion. Social lazy asses is your definition, perception, experience. Yeah, the cartoon makes introverts a bit too precious, but it is true. I get exhausted/anxious in a crowd...cafeterias, malls, football games. I much prefer a library. I don't hate people who prefers crowds. I don't think we deserve that much scorn.
