To give explanation to my earlier posts - I was having a bit of fun.

I am quite familiar with psychological personality profiles like Myer Briggs, and I'm Extrovert, Intuitive, Thinking and Perceptive (ENTP) on their scale.

But ..... I have great difficulty giving these sorts of tests credibility. I am quite capable on most profile tests of identifying what I think the assessor is looking for and calculating my responses to suit.

I guess that's what happens when you've done enough of them.

Also - I actually consider myself to be an Ambivert; which I gather, is someone who can adopt both the introverted and extroverted characteristics to suit their needs/moods/occasion etc.

Is there a chameleon character test

The way the vast majority of society takes it (online), yes, it is. You need to sit down with a psychologist to properly experience it.

Well the whole thing is really trying to boil personality down to four spectrums of behavior so absolutely you can be in the middle or maybe even off the scale or on a different spectrum.

I pretty reliably am INTJ but can also score INTP because I'm in the middle of the J-P scale.

There are also some abbreviated versions of the MB test that I'm sure are less reliable than the full battery. I've had both and several versions I believe.

I'm not talking about the one's in the back of Reader's Digest. I'm talking about the real test the psychologists use.

A little off-topic, but you may also like:

Thanks for the reminder on this book. I watched the TED talk some time ago and found it fascinating - the book is on my wishlist but it slipped my mind until now.

Thankfully my friends also have a laid back attitude towards socializing so it's not unusual for a month or so to go by without even an email, yet we're able to pick up exactly where we left off.
Same here... and that's another INTJ checking in

A person may be shy in new company, but boisterous and 'themselves' in known company.
The author dedicates at least one chapter to the difficulty of 'defining' a person as an introvert, just the 'shyness' is not a synonym for an introvert - it was actually quite an interesting read (although for my taste a bit too detailed/even technical for my taste, although that was to be expected if you look at the author's bio).

All in all, being an introvert myself, it definitely helped with boosting my selfconfidence So if anyone of you is after that, highly recommended!!!

Btw if anyone in interested, I still have 4 promo codes for the ebook, just message me.

I just got this, prompted by the Social Reading thread over at General Discussions - it's next on my TBR list.

My husband is an extrovert, and loves parties and talking with strangers. I find large parties and strangers to be exhausting, and much prefer either on-line interactions or very small groups of close friends.

I put it on hold at the library. There are a lot of people ahead of me so it will be a while. If I run out of patience I might pick it up at BoB.

I read this book last year. I like it. I thought it was a little on research but I think it's great for both introverts and extroverts to read.

Good post Kenny. Funnily enough, I just finished that book as an Audio book. One of my first ever:

http://www.amazon.com/Quiet-Power-In.../dp/B00714PZMQ

I scored INTJ on the test as well. Not sure how accurate this test is but it as well as the book brought me more knowledge and interest to the subject. I had only read the classics of Freud and Jung, so it was good to read a book more modern that dealt with a range of introvert/extrovert categories. I Think Cain made a good point of not trying to pinpoint Introverts or Extroverts and the complexity of the whole thing. The book was GOOD but it had a few moments that wanted me to gag on a spoon. That is the most polite way I can put it on this forum.

Never knew this was a popular book. I just got a rec for it on Audible.com.
