Which one are you? How does permaculture play into or against your 'vertedness? Do you think it even really correlates?

Share your thoughts with us.

I think my perfect ideal life would be me being a little gnome hermit living under a toadstool puttering away in nature. I have very introverted tendencies and feel that some Permie things definitely fit in with my comfort zone. It got me wondering if that might be a theme for other people who gravitate towards this sort of stuff.

I  have done a lot of testing, and I am chunks of both, all of neither. Right down the middle. I avoid people, prefer to be alone, but really enjoy teaching groups, I chat with strangers all  the time, and have fun, then go back into my cave.
Half of each list.
It's weird.

Don't know who is more introverted--self or husband. It is a miracle that we ever talked in the first place (we met at work, in a factory--so romantic!). (Note: we never dated any other people--ha!)

My biggest regret is that I didn’t runaway from home in high school and live in a stick shelter in the north woods. Of course, the details get a little sketchy.

I'm quite extraverted, I enjoy people a lot, doing things, going places.  I do notice that as I get older I need more alone time, and I don't like that about myself, it feels contrary to my nature, and yet its happening and I can't stop it from happening, trust me I tried.
