Do You Write Like An Introvert Or Extrovert?

Updated: Jul 19, 2019

I wrote a blog back in January on the benefits of being an extroverted writer. While many writers have quieter, introverted personalities, I instead draw inspiration from everyone and everything around me. Put me in a crowded room, and I'll find the story.

I wholeheartedly believe that outgoing – and dare I say ... engaging – personality has made me a better storyteller. But as it turns out, I have my introverted side, too.

The great folks over at Grammarly put together a quiz that helps writers all over the world determine exactly how introverted or extroverted their work style is. You can take the quiz by clicking right here and answering a few simple personality questions.

I took the quiz, and apparently, I am what's called "Ambiverted" because:

* I prefer to generate ideas through personal mapping and then some group discussion.

* I plan for complex writing tasks, but with some writing, I can just dive in.

* My preferred writing environment depends on my mood at that given time.

* I enjoy the whole process of writing.

* I do not enjoy being interrupted when I'm writing.

Basically, I have both extroverted and introverted tendencies when I write. What type of work style do you have as a writer? Follow the link above to take the Grammarly quiz.

The blog I wrote in January on the benefits of being an extroverted writer can be found here if you'd like to learn a little bit more about my thoughts on this topic.
