The very entertaining and talented Mike from A Life Examined has graciously decided to host a party.
Well, it might not be a party exactly, but it’s at least considered a gathering!
He has initiated a bloghop called Question of the Month and I’m honored to a part of it.
It was open to the world, but Jax can pretend that it’s an exclusive “gathering”, right? RIGHT?!
Are you an introvert or extrovert?
Well, lovelies, this is an interesting question because I can relate to being both.
Before I can give you my final answer, let's all make sure we completely understand the question.
Confession: I totally had to google both of these words before I could figure out what was being asked!
Introvert: A shy, reticent person.
Extrovert: An outgoing, overtly expressive person.
While I can be shy in a situation, it's very rare. I'm more likely to be the person you can't shut up.
On the contrary, unless I'm passionate about something or having anxiety, I'm not overtly expressive.
But, the question doesn't say justify being both things so I guess I have to pick just one!
I am an extrovert.
...and you know I'm going to tell you why...
Ten reasons why I consider myself to be an extrovert.
1. I hate silence.
If we're together and there's silence, I promise you that I WILL break it.
2. I can be a little dramatic.
Beard hairs on my toothbrush may justify a full on break down. Just sayin...
3. I talk to strangers.
Not only do I talk to strangers, but I'm pretty sure that I talk to near all of them that I see.
4. I'll ask the totally inappropriate questions.
Example: While house hunting, I asked a man who mentioned that his wife died if she haunts the house.
5. I suffer from severe verbal diarrhea.
I'm constantly mortified by the things that come out of my mouth on a daily basis.
6. I enjoy public presentations.
While some people get butterflies in their stomach over them, I totally look forward to it!
7. I act out stories as I tell them.
We're talking hand movements, sound effects, imitations, and complete craziness until I'm done.
8. I love good attention.
While I dislike birthday cakes and getting gifts, attention for a job well done is ALWAYS welcome.
9. I'm really loud.
Whether I'm happy, sad, or just whatever, I talk real loud and I don't care who's listening!
10. I'm always trying to make a statement.
Verbal statements, fashion statements, or full on craziness, I'm not afraid to let you know I'm there!
On a side note, I've been challenged to make this month's question a list.
Let's just say, challenge accepted!
Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Why?
