I'm like you, but I'm Introverted instead of extroverted. It's also hard to tell what your own type is from the article, since you never mention what the other possible types are.

There's so much to learn about personality types

The human psyche has its own mysteries, just like the cosmos. If you're an introvert, here are some ways to guess your Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI):
- Start by reflecting on how you get energy. In solitary or low-stimulation environments, you might lean toward introversion (I). In contrast, extroverts (E) find energy in social interactions.
- Analyze your social interactions. Do you prefer one-on-one conversations or smaller groups? Often introverts prefer deeper connections with fewer people, whereas extroverts are more talkative and thrive in larger groups.
- Pay attention to your thinking process. Do you process information more internally, with introspection and contemplation? Introverts usually have rich inner worlds. Think aloud and bounce ideas off others if you're an extrovert.
- You can also get hints from your interests. If you like reading, writing, or solitary hobbies, you might be introverted. It's common for extroverts to gravitate toward social activities.
- Observe your reactions when you're stressed. Extroverts may seek support from others and engage in social activities to cope with stress, while introverts withdraw and seek solitude.
- Think about the cognitive functions: MBTI theory involves cognitive functions like Introverted Thinking (Ti), Extraverted Feeling (Fe), etc. You can dig deeper into these functions to figure out what type you are.
- Resources: There are a lot of books and articles that explore the MBTI types and their characteristics. Each type has its own nuances.
- You can learn a lot about yourself from friends and family. You might miss patterns and traits that they notice.
- Join online forums or communities dedicated to personality typing. You can learn a lot about yourself by engaging with like-minded people.

The MBTI isn't set in stone: Remember that it's a tool for self-discovery, not a rigid classification. Depending on the situation, a lot of people exhibit traits from both introversion and extroversion. It's not about limiting yourself, it's about being more aware of yourself.
