Look, I promised that I would never accuse anyone here again of being Ryan Adams. What more can I do?


#505

Bahahahaha

I mean, seriously, what more could I even ask?!


#506

Especially since the first thought when I saw the last person who signed up lurking was: I bet that’s Ryan Adams.


#507

But did I accuse them of that? Oh no, I didn’t!


#508

I am dying. I was thinking it might be one of his love interests or maybe even GoldFalcon.


#509

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.


#511

Well, or maybe:


#512


#513

That is such a Chandler thing to say.


#514

Could I feel more understood?


#515

I’m Chandler. Could I be wearing more clothes?


#516

Extroverted introvert here.

Life of the party among people I know but really overwhelmed in groups of people I don’t.


#517

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.


#518

Yup.

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.

:raising_hand_woman:‍♀️
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.


#520

I don’t like people. I don’t like to people.


#521

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” :joy:


#522

Sartre got it pretty right, if you ask me: https://www.the-philosophy.com/sartre-hell-is-other-people


#523

Couldn’t agree more. I’ll only really engage with strangers when I’m pissed.
