RE: Myers Briggs

 A couple of salient points re: extroversion/introversion...for me, as a psych. nurse, I have stayed far, far away from personality tests--I don't really want to know...that would be too much information for me and heaven forbid, what if I found out I was supposed to be the patient?  LOL!!!  I find it interesting that for me, I have two distinct personas--the extroverted student/professional and the introverted social idiot.  Put me in a situation where I am learning something new/interesting or in a situation like work where I am the charge nurse or with the union where I am working on behalf of justice for worker's rights and I am very much an in your face, right up there in the front row type of person.  Give me a group of people that I am supposed to give a presentation to and I do just fine.  Give me that same group of people at a party and I am a total social moron...there are certain people skills like schmoozing and making small talk that I just never learned and I am about the shyest person around in situations that call for me to do these things...any party that my husband manages to drag me to, I usually end up sitting by myself in a corner somewhere, very happily amusing myself by watching people.  I guess it's all a matter of confidence...at work, at school, etc. I am very confident of my abilities but with people, in person in social situations I am not...
