I guess this is not good for me but I feel better being introverted the way that i guess when we are extroverted while we can’t focus on our own thought and feelings and we can’t improve our thinking ability and creative thinking to do something new .I mean may be it’s lead to gossip!!
    You may predict me by above text like I’m a shy And quiet.if so , obviously yes!!! I’m…

  • Yes now i can define my personality as introverted. Usually i spent time with myself alone and avoid crowds as it makes me feel uncomfortable. You might say that i m nt confident in my own skin bt i think loneliness strenghthens your personality n makes u stronger to face challenges alone…. i am working on improving my personality to a confident one…by the way my sister is the opposite…say an extroverted personality…she is talkative while people say me a silent queen…she’s mostly confident n m shy sometimes….its like i’m nt sure that people feel warmth around me, maybe because i make people uncomfortable around me . lack of confidence..
    bt its certain that i am a very kind hearted human say i’m considerate, thoughtful and tactfull on whom u cn trust with reliability….i am very loyal to people around me…. And i’m proud of all these qualities of mine…♥♡♥

  • I’m a definitely introverted. I’m too shy to start a conversation but once people have conversation with me they’ll be so comfortable because I’m a warm kind of girl. According to my friends I’m a thoughtful person and that makes me trustworthy.

    • Just some differences but once people starts talking with me I will be talketive.

  • There are two different ways of explaining the personality and character. One is from your side and the other one from the people who likes or dislikes your personality and character. If ypu are good in personality it doesn’t mean that you are playing a good character in your daily life.

  • I’m ambivert and reliable to my fellows.
    At times, I dunno how to handle with tactless people. So, being frank is better rather than being shy while dealing with thoughtless people.

  • I am very much honest to say that I am very much introverted I like to stay within myself, l does not like too much noise or crowd but my Kanha is totally different from me he is very much talkative and extroverted,totally opposite of mine. Though I like living within myself I am not disloyal or cold or untrustworthy to others, my Kanha is also very trustworthy, helpful and reliable and in that case we are complementary to each other. My Kanha is also a little bit of tactful while talking with others I am also. His thoughtfulness inspires me a lot and I love him a lot.

  • I am extroverted person but it doesn’t mean I am shy. Before starting conversation first I observe the personilty of other person and then I talked to his way which he/she want to listen. By this method people easily trust you and feel free and close to discuss things.

  • I look to myself and see that sometimes I can be thoughful and considerate towards others, but in the other time I can be thoughless and tactless. Maybe it’s depend on what kind of mood I have in that moment or how my feeling is. Indeed, human being is a mixture of goodness and badness. We can’t expect people to always be kind and caring, sometimes they can be unkind and thoughless too, and vice versa

  • I easily communicate with other people as i m extrovert, too much talkative and confident person
    As i m very soft spoken person my voice is very soft n sweet as people say so people get easily attach to me and when they come in contact with me they get warm and kind treatment
    I treat the feelongs of others with considerate, thoughtful and tactful my parents taught me to do so and i m very soft hearted person also
    As people call me that i m the box of hidden treasures so this explains that i m trustworthy, reliable and loyal person

  • I am both introvert and at the same time extrovert . It depends on situation . For example if situation demands me to talk deal with others then I am introvert but if situation demands me to remain to remain silent and think then I am extrovert. I am also very trustworthy and kind. And also my friends feel warm around me.

  • I have a best friend. I think she is the extroverted type. I doubt it at first, because she’s kind of a quite person, she doesn’t talk much. Well I have a prejudice that every extroverted person should be talkative. But then as I get to know her better, I see that she enjoys meeting people on many occasions, she almost never decline every invitation she got when she had free time, and she loves to go out to many places by riding her motorcycle. That’s why I think she’s an extrovert. What do you think? Do you agree with me?

  • I’m not here to judge anyone as these words are not for you in reality but for the other person who would judge you on that basis which word suits you and giving or describing nature of human on basis of time spent with him/her .Time tells about the real reality that nothing is permanent , a person’s behavior is what time has thought him. Like Extroverted/ Introverted it totally depends on the company you are in .So as we see things really are not that much easy these are connected in a wonderful way isn’t it impossible to feel the other persons feelings. Keep your heart and thought clean . Keep your heart filled with kindness and remember duty is the death of love but sometimes love is the death of duty.

  • In everyday life, people around me said that i’m an extrovert. I thought not at all. Sometimes, more much time, i’m introverted, i enjoy on my own thoughts and feelings than in spending time with other people. They also said that i’m a harm person, a friendly and like to care about others. Moreover, it makes them comfort whenever they were beside me. For any reason, from my deepest heart, i afraid to hurt others, i know how they feel because i do so, so i have to be careful to treat others.

  • Hello everyone, I’m Pooja Purbey. I’m a type of girl who really likes to being Extroverted rather than just being introverted. I’m the type of girl who never strikes up conversation first. Firstly I try to observe people around me, so u can say in the beginning I’m very quiet person but once I strike up conversation and feel comfortable then after I’m very talkative by nature. With my family and friends and loved ones I’m very confident. but meeting with anyone first time makes me little shy. I always makes people warm and kind while meeting. I’m very altruist by nature so, I always like to being thoughtful, considerate and tactful while treating others feelings. But sometimes it is also true, if for any reason I’m angry that time I’m very tactless. As it is said ” HONESTLY IS THE BEST POLICY”, I think it is a best identity of any person. So, I always try to be trustworthy, reliable and loyal with everyone and
    And this is all about me.

    Thank you…

  • According to the explanation, i’m an introvert because i really enjoy spending time with myself. Sometimes i find it difficult to talk with other people especially to strangers. I think an introvert usually a shy person like me. Before say something to my friend, i always think before speak.

  • Well, as for as my personality is concerned. I am a extroverted man because I would love to enjoy my friends gatherings and also eager to know about what is going on in their lives. Secondly, when u talk about confidence and I am extremely confident when I have a knowledge about the topic that I am going to explain the audience. And I am much talkative with my friends who are close to me but little bit shy when I am interacting with new people or you say strangers. Thirdly, extremely warm and kind hearted with all the people either he/she is a friend of me or not. Specially always ready to help the people when they are in some trouble and call on me. I will considerate them and love to help them. Moreover, there is also some situations where I could not stop or resist myself I am completely “tactless” but in a normal situation I am extremely “tactful”. Furthermore, I am “thoughtful” person when people needs me like when they are in a trouble otherwise in a normal routine “thoughtless”. In addition to that, I think that is a huge problem or fault in me that I can trust on people within no time that means I am loyal to them without judging or finding any interest related me in them. At last, I am trustworthy man because I have special feelings for my family and friends.
