There Is Much About Me That Says I Am Indeed An Introverted Loner

I prefer my own company over the company of a group of people on most occasions. When I do actually choose to be around others in a social setting I do have a personal selection of people of whom I prefer to be in my company.

There are times when i am actually able to identify my self as being an “introverted extrovert” – simply putting it i am an Ambivert: which is someone who exhibits qualities of both introversion and extroversion.

What is an introverted extrovert and or an extroverted introvert?

An introverted extrovert would get energy from other people, but still enjoy having time alone. However, this alone time is not necessary for their existence, and they’ll need interaction with others to gain energy.

An extroverted introvert would get energy from being alone, but still enjoy interacting with others.


imagesWI62SFAASo am I an ambivert, an extrovert, or an introvert?

According to a few of the below below quizzes here are my results. I am
made up of the following percentages of ambivert, extrovert & introvert:

Ambivert = 30%
As a fairly equanimous person, you display both introverted and
extroverted characteristics. While on some days you like being surrounded
by many people, on others you prefer to relax on your own and take some
time out.

As such, you can easily relate to both extremes on the personality
spectrum, and have an easier time delving in and out of the internal and
external worlds. This may lead to feelings of confusion as many times you
feel like a “walking contradiction”, feeling one thing one moment, and
another thing the next. Your friendship circle tends to consist of 3, 4,
or 5 people.

To summarize, these are some of your defining characteristics: Equanimous Enjoys socializing, but also being alone at times. Behavioural decisions usually rely on “how one feels”, or the context of the situation.

Usually has a small group of friends. Flexible. Changeable. Ability to appreciate both the inner and outer worlds.

Extrovert = 20%

As a great social networker, you love to socialize, mingle and make as many friends as possible. You gain your energy from the external world of people and events, and prefer thinking and carrying out your daily activities amongst other people.

Unlike introverts, you find alone time draining and miserable and prefer to be in the spotlight surrounded by other people. People describe you as gregarious, talkative and even “larger than life” at times.

To summarize, these are some of your defining characteristics: Sociable and outgoing. Energized by social interaction. Gregarious. Has many friends. Friendly and easy to approach. Assertive and competitive. Speaks and acts, and then thinks later. Easily
distracted.

Introvert = 50%

While not necessarily shy, you prefer to spend a lot of your time alone to recharge your limited energy. Quite simply: people drain you, and you prefer your own inner world of thoughts and passions to the external world of people and events.

imagesRN9HUTQLAs such, you tend to have a few close friendships and are very selective when it comes to relationships. You prefer to think before you act, and people describe you as being thoughtful, cautious, quiet and introspective.

To summarize, these are some of your defining characteristics: Private. Enjoys solitude. Energized alone. Has a rich internal world. Thinks before speaking and acting. Prefers a few intimate friends. Doesn’t enjoy loud, sociable situations. Independent.


While most people are hectically trying to fit in a crowd of interests, attitudes, and styles,
there are those people who choose to stay out. They don’t suffer from the fear of missing out, and would rather miss out on many things they find quite trivial.

Being lonely has nothing to do with being a loner. In fact, these are two completely different things. A person feeling lonely is not a loner, but quite the opposite. Loners choose to be alone in most cases.

If you have a loner as a friend, you should indeed feel privileged. It’s not that these people think of themselves too highly – on the contrary, they are quite down to earth and realistic about themselves.

This very fact is what makes them think twice before choosing those around them. They are great analyzers and they find themselves in deep and healthy thought in the solitude they prefer.

Loners don’t prefer shallow topics and gossip, and that’s why they prefer to avoid the majority of people who are obsessed over trivialities.

This deeply intellectual approach toward life helps them understand people around them better and understand the way they function.

There are two kinds of loners – the extroverted and the introverted
loners.

These two types are different in the way they behave and the company they
choose, but in the end, it falls down to the same preference about people.

The extroverted loners can easily communicate with anyone they choose to
communicate with. They have no trouble in establishing a healthy and rich
communication with people and they don’t feel uncomfortable in a crowd.

However, these people choose to be loners because they don’t want to hang
out with anyone. They would rather spend their lives alone, than be around
fake people and shallow minds. They are easy to talk to, but will keep
their safe distance with a dose of a healthy reserve.

If you manage to get close to an extroverted loner, you have definitely
passed a lot of tests you are not aware of. And once you reach the inner
territory of this loner’s heart, you will have them as friends for life.

The introverted loners are a different story. They are easily overwhelmed
by large groups of people and crowded places, and they would rather be
somewhere quiet and relaxing. Their main idea of spending quality time
includes a small number of people they feel comfortable with.

You won’t see these people at concerts, or parties. They like spending
time in secluded places and prefer hanging out with people who are not too
intense or arrogant. Having this kind of loner as a friend means that they
feel comfortable and free in your presence. They like people who they can relate to, images43fwsxx6.jpgintellectually and emotionally.

Both types of loners appreciate intellect and genuine emotion.

They will not easily make great friends with many, but those who have these people for friends are privileged to have loyal and trustworthy friends, who are ready to put their complete trust into the relationship.

However, fail them and you may lose them for life. It’s best to be sincere and completely honest with them, even when you have done something wrong. Failing a loner means being insincere and arrogant.

In Reflection Of Myself & My Own Personality Types

There are times when I am actually able to identify my self as being an “introverted extrovert” – simply putting it I am an Ambivert: which is someone who exhibits qualities of both introversion and extroversion, for me it is all about the time, the place, the situation & the people…

For me being introverted is a personal choice not a personality trait… I choose when and where I wish to communicate and socialise with people… I think I am closer to being an ambivert.

As a fairly equanimous person, you display both introverted and extroverted characteristics. While on some days you like being surrounded by many people, on others you prefer to relax on your own and take some time out.

I am indeed an introverted loner. I prefer my own company over the company of a group of people on most occasions. When I do actually choose to be around others in a social setting I do have a personal selection of people of whom I prefer to be in my company.

For me being introverted is a personal choice not a personality trait… I choose when and where I wish to communicate and socialise with people…

  1. Your evaluation of yourself seems spot on. I see you as choosing the type of personality you wish to display depending on your preferences at the moment. You are definitely one to not let anything define you that doesn’t make you comfortable. I too see myself as a combination of different styles.
    Thank you for sharing.
