You're An Introvert!
Based on the results of this quiz, you are an introvert! Unlike being shy, introversion is as much a part of you as your eye color. Though you may love engaging with others and meeting up with friends, you tend to feel very emotionally drained at the end of a long day out amongst others. You often need to take time to "recharge" your emotional battery and feel rested. You don't fear being alone and often embrace time that can be spent doing your own thing on your own time. You may have some shy tendencies, but at the end of the day, you're truly an introvert.
You're Just Shy!
Based on the results of this quiz, you're just shy! Though you may truly love spending time on your own, social engagements don't tend to leave you feeling drained or emotionally exhausted. Instead, you tend to focus on what happens before socializing, often worrying about what others might think or how you might come across to those you'll be seeing. You hate to be perceived in a negative light and often do whatever you can to avoid the spotlight out of fear of judgment. You love your friends and hanging out with them, but dealing with strangers or new people can leave you feeling a bit frazzled. Even though you're shy, remember that you have amazing things to offer the world. You're not being judged as often as you think!
You're A Bit Of Both!
Based on the results of this quiz, you're both introverted and shy! Like a shy person, you're not a big fan of the spotlight, often avoiding social engagements or any situation that could put you front and center. You're not keen on hanging out with strangers and tend to stick to those you know. Like an introvert, social engagements can leave you feeling totally drained and in need of some time alone to recharge!
