I've administered both the Myers-Briggs, and the Beck Depression and Beck Anxiety scales MANY times. I've seem a correlation between introversion and anxiety, but not necessarily between introversion and depression. Remember, we are talking about personality types, not psychological disorders. And I STILL do not agree that introverts are more sedentary. They may more solitary in their activities, but that does not mean that they are not active. When you add a significant depressive aspect to this, however, you would probably find someone who doe NOT exercise as much... but not always. And yes, exercise does help mood disorders.
    And that's all I was saying. I know a lot of introverted types in my field, and many times, they tend to become too solitary, too sedentary. I think shutting yourself in, not interacting with people, and basically sitting in front of a screen all day is very unhealthy, and I think introverts tend to be more at risk for that type of behavior (just an opinion) just because they enjoy being alone more than others.

    When I was going through that period, all I did was go to class and come right back to my room and play games or watch movies or read books. I hated going out and I dreaded physical activity. One of my friends finally had enough and said "Get your moody ass up and play some basketball with us! I'm sick of your bitchy attitude, man!" I started exercising regularly, getting out in the sun, and damn did it feel good!

    But what you are describing doesn't sound like simple introversion. It sounds more like being somewhat depressed. I have been introverted all my life. Yet I exercise daily, BY MY SELF. Doesn't change the fact that I am an introvert and prefer to either be alone or in a small group of familiar people.

    Not all introverts are depressed, though that may be the stereoptype that some have.

    Almost forgot! My diet was complete ****, too. Need to eat healthy and exercise if you want to be all you can be.

    Sounds like you were depressed. I don't just want I need time on my own. I like it. It centres me.

    No, though somewhat outdated, it's a pretty good tool to describe personality types.
    The problem is the trouble with assessing one's self. Most people want to think that they use logic and reason rather than just their gut, but is that true?

    When I look at each question, I can think of a way to make myself fit each answer, and not even ambiguously; I can think of a way to make it seem like each answer is the most obvious one for me. The real answer is that we don't know, and can't say for sure, especially when it comes to measuring ourselves.

    I find it extremely hard to trust any of these tests.

    Not always. Wanting to do something and feeling confident in doing that thing are not always consistent.

    It tends to increase aggression, which can appear to be self confidence.

    Many of these tests have natural reliability factors built into them. Try taking the test, answering as honestly as you can in assessing yourself and see what you come up with.

    Not all introverts are depressed, though that may be the stereoptype that some have.
    I became depressed and anxious because my introverted nature left me more predisposed towards being alone. I don't know what I'm trying to say, I guess. I think if you stopped exercising, you'd probably start experiencing some depression and anxiety; I bet it keeps you level, mentally and physically.

    Being introverted does not make you predisposed to depression and/or anxiety. Introverts may be more anxious, but that does not mean that it develops into a disorder. Not exercising does not necessarily mean you will be more depressed or anxious, however, you can improve your mood from your baseline by exercising.

    Re: Introvert or Extrovert?

    I had to vote extroverted after taking the test:



    You are:
    moderately expressed extrovert
    distinctively expressed intuitive personality
    moderately expressed thinking personality
    slightly expressed perceiving personality

    I did have to correct their spelling of extravert (sic). That might mean that they don't know as much as they think they do.
