Never been an introvert a day in my life, thanks to my parents who allowed me as a child to "shine" around other people and enjoy talking to old people. Now my husband is a complete introvert because he stuttered as a child, and his parents would point it out to EVERYONE "Oh, he stutters, so he doesn't talk." He got over the problem as an adult, but never over the anxiety.
Introvert, however I am trying to figure out how to change that. I would love to be able to go out and make some friends in my new location. Hopefully at some point I will be able to grab that courage and charge.

I am both, depending on the situation. All my childhood and into my young adulthood I was extremely shy and talked very quietly if at all. I would talk if I felt safe that I would be listened to and accepted. After many years of counseling, I have found my voice and it is good.
Extrovert, have been all my life. My mom said I would strike up conversations with strangers in the grocery store. Of course that was over 50 years ago when it was much safer to do so. I guess you could say that I never meet strangers because I'll interact with pretty much anybody. I love huge family gatherings like family reunions meeting those distant cousins, etc. You won't find me standing in the corner waiting for someone to come talk to me. I'm the one mingling with everybody. I love sharing my life experiences with others. I have 3 children and when they were growing up I was honored that their friends wanted to spend so much time at our home. Their name for me-Momma Kim. I think that sums it up-Momma Kim
Introvert, but I love public speaking and small groups. But the minute you walk into my house (even if I invite you), I can't wait until you leave. lol. Spent 2017 fighting breast cancer. Just finished my chemo in May, 2018 and am planning to have my port removed today!!! Gonna spend the rest of 2018 trying to find my new normal and a healthier normal (without my right breast!) Life is good.

"SUGAR IS THE DEVIL" - Just telling it like it is. When it comes to the hard truth about sugar, obesity, and disease, both the sugar industry and Harvard University have A LOT to answer for. Glad the facts now are pouring out. Get rid of added sugar and too many starchy carbs like they're the plague.
Human body needs 1-ONE-teaspoon sugar PER DAY (NOT
I see we all have adapted to what is required. My ability to be alone was developed at a very young age, only child at home with older parents. Although an introvert, it will be me that speaks first among a room of strangers. Most of us introverts learn we must adapt to the situation.
KISS-Keep It Simple Sweetie! Have you ever wished for different? Now is the time to make it happen.

As my husband would tell you, I am an extrovert. I can--and do--talk to anyone about anything. I come from a long line of extroverts who are always the last ones to leave a social gathering because they're busy talking!
...Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Phil. 3:13b-14
I am both. By nature, I am an extreme introvert. However I learned long ago, I had to function in the world to survive. I developed a "fake" extrovert persona. Even the people I have worked with describe me as gregarious and loud. I guess I did a good job hiding it. Now that I am older, my true introvert side has blossomed. I realize it is OK to be all alone and not to want to be around people. I enjoy being by myself and doing all my introvert type things alone.
Extrovert. Relationships are more important than ever as I get older.
