The more True’s you answered, the more introverted you are. And the more False’s the more extroverted you are. It’s important to know your personality type because if you fight your own nature, you might find yourself in an overly stressful job situation or commitment. You gain energy from either being alone (as an introvert)  or from being with people (as an extrovert) – and you might just fall somewhere in the middle. How did you score?
