Decline politely. I've had a lot of fun tonight, but now I want to go home and get some time to myself. Being around other people for too long can be tiring, even when I like being around others.
Accept. I love spending time with my friends, and crave excuses to spend more time with them. I feel energetic when I'm with my friends.
Solitary. I put a lot of importance on spending time by myself. While I can enjoy social activities, I find myself being drawn more to alone-time activities, like reading, watching TV by myself, hiking or fishing alone, or spending time with a few close friends.
With others. I enjoy interacting with others, and often feel bored and lethargic when I spend too much time by myself. I find myself enjoying group activities, parties, clubs, social functions, and activities I can do with others.
Are very close to me and not too numerous. Those I can call true friends, I count on one hand. I may not have interest in making friends outside of the handful of those I consider close to me.
Are many and equally close. It's easy for me to make friends, and I like adding more people to the list of people I call my pals.
Feel embarrassed, but feel comfortable enough to laugh it off or brush it off without too much difficulty and do not worry about it later.
Feel extremely embarrassed, and spend borderline unhealthy amounts of time obsessing about the mistake, even if I appear not to care.
I am fairly open. I do not mind sharing my feelings, and am fairly comfortable talking about them.
I am cautious until I feel like I can trust someone implicitly. I may not feel comfortable revealing my feelings, even in situations as simple as "Do you like ______?"
I find myself very comfortable with listening. Though I do not mind talking, unless the conversation is one that I think I can get passionate or talkative about, I do not mind letting the other person dominate the conversation.
I am very comfortable talking. I do not mind sharing my thoughts and opinions. While I don't mind listening, I prefer to speak my mind and have more control over the conversation, especially if I sense that my talking parter is a good listener.
I don't mind it. It can be a great way to get to know someone if I'm only talking to them briefly.
I dislike it. If I am not in the mood to small talk, I may even dread it. I'd much rather have a thoughtful discussion with someone and pass up on the small talk.
Jump right in and pick up on what's going on very quickly.
Prefer to wait and observe what's going on before I join in. Maybe I sit out a round until I judge that I want to participate.
Usually awkward. I like to talk to fill the silence. I often view silence as uncomfortable and unproductive. When I am with my significant other or my friends, silence is not an option-- it's just not fun that way.
Often comfortable. That's not to say that there are times when things are awkward, but usually I do not mind silence, and maybe even prefer it. I am comfortable with not talking, even with my significant other or my friends.
It's very easy for me to take charge. I often find myself as a leader of a group, and I don't mind that. I work very well and creatively in groups.
I am less thrilled about group projects. I don't feel like my creativity is paid attention to, and feel more creative when I work alone. I may not want to be a leader all the time, but when I do think I can lead a project, I am overshadowed by more charismatic or talkative group members.
True. I desire these things and in many ways, plan my future in order to obtain them.
False. I find that I think about these things less than my peers.

Energized and happy. I've had a lot of fun.
Drained, even if I've had fun.

Can be difficult. I find that sharing information is almost addictive and good for bringing me closer to others.
Is easy. People tell me that I'm like a vault.
