The Ramble: Introvert or Extrovert?

Earlier today I posted a review about a book that describes a change in our country where extroverts are now the only hire able personality and introverts don't feel as accepted.

As I believe most of my followers are book people, we are stereotyped to be introverted, less sociable.  Maybe that is a generalization, but when I took my Meyers Briggs before I headed off to college, I was a pure bred EXTROVERT.  As I get older I can see my need for quiet time to recharge the batteries and my quiet time usually includes a book.  Although, I still think I am as extroverted as the day I headed off to college.  

In the same breath, some of my closest friends and maybe even the boy are introverted and crave that time at home and it is even a necessity.  I respect that we all can't have an activity to go to every night of the week and a full schedule isn't a positive thing in everyone's minds, but just maybe we are all both.  

Yes, I tend to lean towards the extroverted ways and love to be in a group and around people.  But thank goodness for those quiet nights with the pup, fireplace, chai tea and a wonderful book - some weeks the mere thought of that list makes me cry happy tears of joy.  I guess I have a little introvert tendencies.  

Where do you stand on this issue?
