    Scientific American; What kind of introvert are you?

    http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/...overt-are-you/


    Thinking Introversion.

    You have a great relationship with yourself because you spend a lot of time thinking about what kind of person you are, daydreaming, and fantasizing about the future. You enjoy your rich inner mental life, and you like to think about how you would act or think if you were subjected to circumstances faced by other people.
    Well, there's a surprise...

    Social introvert

    You spend a lot of time by yourself—and you're completely okay with that. You are happy with the small group of friends that you have and you avoid large crowds like the plague.

    Anxious Introversion

    You are consumed with a fear of failure. When you are with groups of people, you spend a lot of time worrying about ways you could make a bad impression. The best way for you to relax is to go somewhere by yourself and let it all go.
    Fair enough

    Glimpses do ye seem to see of that mortally intolerable truth; that all deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea; while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore?

    Sounds good, although I rarely fantasize about the future.

    Social - Yep - I prefer and therefore choose the freedom to be spontaneous and autonomous and that is far easier to do alone or in small groups vs large.
