About This Quiz

They say you're either an introvert or an extrovert, but is it true? Is it possible that you are somewhere in between or that you swing back and forth? Once you react to some completely normal and some totally awkward situations, we'll let you know where you stand on the scale of introversion or extroversion. 

Extroverts make themselves easy to spot, but introverts prefer to go unnoticed. There's nothing wrong with either type of personality, but are you sure you know which one you are? It's entirely possible to be one or the other. It's also possible to be both! Show us your social graces throughout this quiz, and we'll pick up on the personality trait that helps you navigate the world. 

You can take a complicated personality assessment like the Myers-Briggs test to learn about your level of being an introvert or an extrovert. All you really need to do is prove the way you react to a bunch of random social situations, though. After you do, we'll sum up your responses. 

Will you be as outgoing as you think you are, or will you validate your lifelong sense of shyness? React to the situation we put you in, and find out!
