I find it interesting that 84% (at this point) of us are introverts. I consider myself one also, but I'm finding myself more outgoing when I'm with other naturists at a resort. I guess one factor is that we're a friendly bunch and it is easier to start up conversations. :)

An interesting definition. I've always considered myself an introvert, due to the fact that I am more comfortable with interacting with a very small group of people, say 2 or 3. I get lost in a large crowd and tend to feel I've become invisible to bigger groups of people (at least while dressed).

Intro/extroversion and friendly/unfriendly are different planes. We tend to think of my extrovert best friend with frequent thronged parties as "friendlier" than I am with my "two's company, seven is a strain" rule. But did she really have more deep friends than I have?

There is a general assumption in society that we Extros have many acquaintances but few friends with opposite being true of Intros; without some slightly odd numbercrunching & arguing over the definition of friendship we're using, we may never know & I'm not sure that's a bad thing. As Petros said, sort of, the nature of friendship crosses, flies over, dives under & barges through the Intro/Extro paradigm; again, no bad thing.

I have friends from across this spectrum who know stuff about me I had once planned taking to my grave. The nature of true friendship is that it ignores false divisions & relishes the individual for their own sake. My Extroness is only a part of who I am, not the whole shebang.

Of course, as a Christian, one is expected & required by scripture to welcome all & sundry into the Church; I've sat next to people from vastly different backgrounds; it's part of the fun of being a Christian!

There is no question, in my case I could not be considered an extrovert however I tried to be like that, whichever way the distinction is defined. If I was among any three of us meeting, the other two would probably talk more than I would manage doing, unless they both were courteous and wanted to hear me speaking about something. I am subdued among others talking, and it is more challenging to speak up among them. I am not at all antisocial, and would not be thought to be so. I am indepently thinking enough, and I can choose differently with things thought out, such as being Christian with being nudist, as other introverts here show themselves so independently minded. And I don't stop there, much more is carefully thought out, to live differently, in what would be better ways. But in speaking one on one with any, I can be just as engaging, and continue at length that way. But unlike extroverts, I can generally be quite comfortable being alone by myself. I can use such time very creatively.
