    Are you an extravert (like hanging out with people) or introvert (would rather be by yourself)

    ???

    Both...there are times when I like to be with others, but also appreciate time alone to recharge.

    unfortunately i'm a natural introvert. people piss me off because i think they are so selfish and inconsiderate. but i'm the type that takes everything too seriously also. i do volunteer work though. where i volunteer at a lot of in shape college age women are their also. it's cool as i would just like to socialize outside of the bar scene and just enjoy their company. not like i'm looking for relationships with them.

    It depends on my mood, but more extravert, but I like to be introvert too.

    ^^^ what Pieter said.

    I like getting out and being in groups of people etc, but it's typically friends and family, or people I know through business. As a hole I feel most people are annoying fall into the slack jawed mouth breathers.

    If not hanging out with people I know I am more than happy taking some alone time to myself and relaxing. I am one of those that will once in a while go to lunch or dinner alone, bring a book or something to pass the time and just relax.

    Usually very extroverted, but after spending a lot of time with other people I'll need some down time. It depends on my mood and the situation.

    Depends on my mood. Sometimes, I just want to be alone. Other times I want to be the life of the party.

    I am an introvert; I have learned to become extroverted as a matter of survival on my job. It has just spilled over into my personal life.

    Everyone who knows me would describe me as an extrovert. Overcompensation is a wonderful thing.

    Definitely an extrovert.

    I go stir crazy if I'm not able to interact with other people in the flesh.

    Used to be introvert/extrovert 90/10.

    Then climbed out from under my rock and became introvert/extrovert 60/40.

    It depends on my mood as well as the people I'm around.

    If I'm not in a good mood or not around good people whom I like, no amount of pretending can make it a positive experience. Conversely, if I'm in a good mood and/or with people I like, nothing bad that happens--heavy rainstorm, screwed-up plans, etc.--can ruin the experience.

    One point, though: Anticipation can make the experience more positive, even if I'm in a not-so-good mood at the beginning of the evening.

    I can play the part of an extravert when required. Otherwise, I'm happy being my introverted self. Put me on a deserted island for a week, and I'd be fine. At the end of the week I may be quite chatty with my friends, though.
