So at the event I went to yesterday I was talking to someone and they described me as "extroverted" and I had to stop myself from bursting out laughing. That is a word I would never use to describe myself, but when I thought about it he was probably reacting to my body language, since I try to avoid crossing my arms in front of myself and similar body language that closes me off from people. It later occurred to me that since I naturally am an introvert I've gotten really good at faking extroversion.

This event itself was frankly kind of boring, and mainly directed at older people. It was about LinkedIn, and it mostly seemed to be explaining the site to people who don't know how to use it, and I'm pretty sure I was the youngest person in the room next to my friend, who's a year older, and I was the only '12 grad. We both agreed that most of what they said was stuff we've figured out intuitively from using the site, so it's a generation thing. Everyone did burst out laughing when one woman interrupted another question to ask how to remove people from your LinkedIn connections.

Today I took my socials security card to the temp people, so now I've got all my paperwork in. With any luck I won't need to use their services, but it can't hurt. I did get a bit lost since their office is in the Financial District and it's hard for me to navigate because of all the tall buildings, but I eventually found it.

ETA: My mom sent me a link to an article about INFJs, who apparently can read as extroverts, and it has some interesting stuff.
