Am I an introvert? Make the Personality Test to Find out

An Extroverted Personality should be very outgoing, an alpha-type personality, and seek out the spotlight wherever possible.  However, introvert people are often viewed as being faulty and needing “fixing”.

What Cain suggests in her novel, “Quiet:  The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking”, is that introverts truly boast a power that extroverts lack to varying degrees.  She also proposes the idea that there are three general personality types:  introverts, extroverts, and ambiverts, who run a fine line between extroversion and introversion.


To find out if you have this characteristic, do the Myers-Briggs personality test.
