ive always been a super confident extrovert. however i am highly sensitive to my surroundings, if that makes sense.. ive always just been me and not cared what people thought most of the time. i do get anxious if i percieve someone to be unhappy or displeased with me. my parents tell me i was always been 'high strung' even as a kid, so maybe the "-partygirl popular extrovert" thing is an elaborate mask that i wore well for a very long time. i dont enjoy confrontation, i am assertive but not agressive. i can be wildly introspective- i overthink things and dwell on the mistakes of my past.
both of my career paths (nursing & teaching) tend to need patience, empathy and a sensitivity to the needs of others. maybe there is a personality link there? i dont know.
hope this helps
