    There is nooooo way that 80% of people are actually introverts.

    Either TSR is very unrepresentative of the general population, or some people dont really know what an introvert is.
    If 80% of people are introverts, what am I then....?
    I guess you're right! Introverts seem to spend time on an online forum, as opposed to getting out there and socialising. Also, statistics do in fact show that there are more introverts than there are extroverts.

    True, but its missing the nuance. Everyone is a bit shy to some degree, so its wierd there is no "normal person" option. I assume many people who are pretty normal selected the introvert option because they know for sure that they're no extroverts.

    In conclusion, I think the poll would have been very different if there was a 3rd "neither, nor" option.

    According to MBTI I am extroverted slightly, and based on your criteria I think that is true.

    Of course this isn't representative of the population, it's a student forum. The ratio of introvert to extrovert is hardly surprising though.

    I put myself as introverted, which I def am, but the funny thing is, I'm really quiet around people I only meet once a week (generally speaking), but when I get away from them, I can't stop talking! lol

    It's pretty much a given that the majority of TSRians will vote for 'Introvert'. :laugh:

    I'm more of an extrovert. Although sometimes I'm an introvert. Sometimes it just depends on the person I'm approaching.
