Look, I promised that I would never accuse anyone here again of being Ryan Adams. What more can I do?
I mean, seriously, what more could I even ask?!
Especially since the first thought when I saw the last person who signed up lurking was: I bet that’s Ryan Adams.
But did I accuse them of that? Oh no, I didn’t!
I am dying. I was thinking it might be one of his love interests or maybe even GoldFalcon.
Accusing someone of being one of Ryan Adams’s love interests may in fact be a lower blow than accusing them of being Ryan Adams. I don’t know about accusing someone of being GoldFalcon.
At the risk of playing to my school marm role/brand, the Meyers Briggs might be the least valid personality test and it’s shocking that people still talk about it.
If you want a more validated test, try the Big Five Personality Inventory.
Well, or maybe:
That is such a Chandler thing to say.
Could I feel more understood?
I’m Chandler. Could I be wearing more clothes?
Extroverted introvert here.
Life of the party among people I know but really overwhelmed in groups of people I don’t.
The true determination is how you get your energy. Is it from quiet reflection or is it from being with people? If people make you tired, you are an introvert. I am capable of public speaking, training a group for eight hours straight, giving tours, talking to strangers all day, sure…. But it makes me tired, it doesn’t give me life.
Energized by hanging out with people I know and love but if I have to be in a large crowd I get exhausted for days.
My friends used to call me the extrovert growing up. I get juiced by interacting with people. I can and will talk to anyone. I get up in front of people and sing 2-3 times a week and would do it more if I could.
I don’t like people. I don’t like to people.
Very much the case for me.
Even with people I love, I tend to take 1–2 hrs to myself when I get home to kind of “recalibrate”
Sartre got it pretty right, if you ask me: https://www.the-philosophy.com/sartre-hell-is-other-people
Couldn’t agree more. I’ll only really engage with strangers when I’m pissed.
