    i'm not even sure, i think being on this forum and reading other stuff, sometimes cooking, i like being alone to recharge, but being away from others for too long makes me sad, i make friends pretty easily and get along with most people, i don't tell everyone everything about me though, but that could also be due to fears i have for different reasons, i can't do public speaking well and get nervous but i sometimes dominate discussions that don't involve too many people, at other times, i mainly listen and observe. i'm so weird i don't know what i am.

    I think you might be a introvert too. I think I'm like you, I like being alone doing stuff like reading or being on forums, but after a while (maybe a day or two) I need to be with other people. I don't think this is extroversion, I just think that everyone, even introverts, need some human interaction. BTW, I'm 100% introverted so I doubt I'm an extrovert who thinks he's an introvert. :nod:

    I've heard that INFJs often get mistaken for extroverts.

    you have very good points. this makes a lot of sense. and i do prefer one on one conversations to group conversations, by large, so yeah i'm an introvert, someone here *cough cough* insists that i might be an extrovert lol.

    I'm like this too and Shai is right - It's all about the recharge. I can't be around people for long periods of time, but I can't be by myself for long periods of time. Making friends easily doesn't have a whole lot to do with it although it is typically thought of as an extrovert trait, but plenty of introverts can make friends easy too.

    yeah that does make a lot of sense, making friends easily might have to do with being NF, maybe, could be...yeah i'm pretty sure i'm an introvert, probably just not a very obvious one...
