Loose definitions

Dori at Backup Brain points to an article about introverted people, like her. I liked it, but it seems that I'm neither extroverted nor introverted by the definitions in that piece. I'm on the extroverted side overall -- I do blather on.

On the other hand, I also need considerable time to myself. Maybe that's because I'm an only child, and spent lots of my childhood in contented silence, sitting in the living room reading while my parents (introverted dad and extroverted mom) did the same. I think I understand introversion, and the need not to speak or hang out in groups. Categorizing people is never as easy as it appears.
