On June 9th, 2014, the Scientific American blog Beautiful Minds had a rather in-depth article called Will the Real Introverts Please Stand Up? about what introversion really meant (and extraversion as the opposite). The term is still highly misunderstood, whether from generic social definitions, or more precise and complex definitions through the works of Myers-Briggs and others following.
In the Beautiful Minds article, they had a 20 question quiz written out. Some score adjustments were then required after you answered, followed by averaging your newly adjusted scores, and averaging two halves of your score if you wanted more information. In this post with an Excel spreadsheet attachment below, I have made this test a lot easier to take. You just answer the questions and flip through the process to see your results! There is a minor summary of your results, but you’d then go back to the original article linked above for the full details.

Have you ever wondered how Santa knows you when you’re sleeping? How he knows when you’re awake? And how he knows when you’ve been good or bad?
Well, you might think you know! However, it’s not likely you really knew if what American traitor Edward Snowden says is true!
The American Medical Association has just voted to classify obesity as a “disease”.
Wow. That’s just wrong. I thought doctors were supposed to be smart.
I know obesity is being treated like an epidemic, so the expression goes, but that’s only because it’s big in numbers. There’s nothing very epidemic about it medically. You can involuntarily spread it. You can’t involuntarily catch it. You sure as heck can influence those around you to be overweight if you are, but it’s still a choice most people make. There are some, I realize, that have weight gain as a medical condition from conditions with their body, but those are rare in the group making obesity to be considered an epidemic. I’m not talking about those people. I’m talking about the regular ones who just make bad choices and don’t have enough motivation and discipline to keep from being obese. That’s the real disease, if you ask me.
