Is your child an Introvert or an Extrovert?

Take this quiz from Quiet Power: The Secret Strength of Introverts to find out where you fall on the introvert-extrovert spectrum. There are no right or wrong answers. Just note the descriptions that most apply to you.

-They prefer spending time with one or two friends instead of a group.
-They had rather express my ideas in writing.
-They enjoy being alone.
-They prefer deep conversations to small talk.
-Their friends tell them that they are a good listener.
-They prefer small classes to large ones.
-They avoid conflicts.
-They don’t like showing people my work until it’s perfect.
-They work best on my own.
-They don’t like being called on in class.
-They feel drained after hanging out with friends, even when they have fun.
-They’d rather celebrate my birthday with a few friends and family than have a huge party.
-They don’t mind big independent projects at school.
-They spend lots of time in my room.
-They are usually not a big risk-taker.
-They can dive into a project, practice a sport or instrument, or engage in something creative for hours at a time without getting bored.
-They tend to think before I speak.
-They had rather text or e-mail than talk on the phone with someone They don’t know very well.
-They don’t feel totally comfortable being the center of attention.
-They usually like asking questions more than I like answering them.
-People often describe me as soft-spoken or shy.
-If They had to choose, They had prefer a weekend with absolutely nothing to do to one with too many things scheduled.
Keep in mind that this is an informal quiz, not a scientific personality test. The questions were designed based on characteristics of introversion often accepted by researchers.
The more often these descriptions applied to them, the more introverted they probably are. If only a few descriptions fit them, they are likely more of an extrovert. They may also fall somewhere in between, in which case They are probably an ambivert.
