      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

It's Just The Way I Am

Extrovert, Introvert, Ambivert.....who are you?

This popped up in the memories section on FB today: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/6-illustrations-that-show-what-its-like-in-an-introverts-head_us_56c62d04e4b0ec6725e1fac8?ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000032

I think it explains the situation very well. My comment on FB was " Technically I'm an "ambivert" (I can stand y'all for a little awhile, but when its over, its really over), but this makes such perfect sense to me! " but I think I fall more toward introvert in the drawings.

Thoughts?

I think I could say the same about me, Mame - "ambivert" but leaning more toward introvert. I used to think of myself as a "mild" or "semi-introvert," but your description makes more sense to me.

I have read that description before and definitely fall into the "ambivert" category.  

Most people who meet me would think I'm an extrovert, but I get my recharging from quiet time and solitude.  Never have had a problem being alone.   And sometimes takes a lot for me to want to go to social events where I have to be around a lot of people. 

But...I was a cheerleader, outside sales and have held various leadership positions of large organizations.    People don't expect me the inner introvert. :)
