After spending time with a group of people, do you feel energized and ready for anything or do you want to hide in the corner with a good book?
I am very much an introvert. I will tolerate a gathering fairly well, but afterward I often feel drained and in need of some alone time. A book or needlework and music is definitely preferred after a gathering. There have been times where I am with such a great group that I am willing to step away from the introvert side and go off on whatever adventures the group decides to pursue. It really depends on how things are going in life, too. If things are going well, I am more likely to have energy to explore with my more outgoing friends. If I am going through a tough patch, then I am likely to quietly excuse myself as things wind down and come home.
