How Much Time Alone Do You Need?

When I asked this question before, the consensus seemed to be that it deserved a post of its own. Allow me to add to it the following:

  • Do you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert?

  • Would you say you were outgoing, shy, or hard-to-warm-up?

I don't need much time alone, only about an hour or two every month.

I consider myself extroverted. Though I don't enjoy just hanging with lots of people anymore, I prefer closer smaller circles.

I dont think I am particularly outgoing, unless the circumstances allow, but if my husband is there I tend to hang back to allow him to speak, if there are shy people around I tend to encourage them to speak, if I find that no one wants to speak I am more than capable of filling the air with words and starting up conversations.

I am in the process of learning how to speak when the season is right and not before. And to say the right words that I thought about first, and not just blurt things out.

I'm a bit of both. I love opportunities to entertain and to gather together with friends, but I also love my simplistic life at home.

My extroverted nature REALLy rears it's head when I'm forced to be at home for a week. I can CHOOSE to stay home for a week (with no trips to friends or town, remember we live in the country) but if circumstances like *blizzards* or sick children force me to be home, I do tend to veer towards the "cabin fever" mindset. It pains me to admit this.

Oh, dearest mother,
you are mistaken in your terminology. The correct term would be slow to warm up :) That's me!
