Introvert/Extrovert

Introvert and extrovert.

Both are different sides of a coin and opposite personality types. Introvert, a person who tends to shrink from social contacts and to become preoccupied with their own thoughts. Extrovert, a person concerned more with practical realities than with inner thoughts and feelings. Normally, one is predominant at any given time.

I on the other hand, possess both these opposing qualities. No I'm not bipolar or experiencing split personality. I was rather taken a back upon realising this. Doesn't make any sense does it? I feel like a freak of nature really but that's how it is.

When I'm out with friends for shopping, eating or just plain get together, I'm the loud and center of attention. Ask anyone who've met me, I'm like the Queen Diva dressed in shiny neon pink with feathered boa and outragous make up, standing on a float during Gay Pride parade.

Yes I stand out like a sore thumb.

Once I get home or in my room, I become a very quiet person, who's totally focused on whatever I'm doing. May be just surfing the net or reading a book. I go on for hours without uttering a word and just minding my own business. Even with my roomie, we hardly talk. Not because I don't want to but just felt I'd much rather enjoy the quietness. I hardly chat with people online too. I do respond to them of course but rarely do I initiate the chat.

Freaky huh?

Perhaps this is my quirk. The oddity that is me.

And yes. Right now the room is very quiet but not deafening silence. I can hear the sound of bugs calling out into the cool night, the sound of each key being pressed on my keyboard and the sound of the fan cutting through the air.

You know you love me.
