    I think that's probably quite true.

    On the OP, I think that most serious writers are not all that social--that they spend a lot of time alone with their computers, typewriters, pens, whatever.

    I don't know if most writers are introverts or extroverts, but I think most people tend to see us as introverts.

    I think writers tend to be observers and people confuse that with introversion.

    Gary - Rubbish, keep it up!

    Kitty, I dodged the question, now i know why.
    "extroverts or introverts?"

    It doesn't matter.
    CAN they get into the character who is 'doing' right now?
    Yes, probably a good writer.
    No, possibly an also ran.

    I am heavily extroverted when drunk, drugged and out of control.
    Other times, usually with real people away from the plastic ones, I will come over introverted.
    We discuss it in here from time to time.

    Interesting question - I'd like to see a study done! Of course introversion and extroversion is on a scale - I'd probably guess that good writers find themselves on the introvert side because I bet a lot of useful skills come along with that. I tend to be an introvert myself... but then I'm not really a 'writer' as much as someone who writes... sometimes...

    A study would be interesting. I know some psychology majors, I should ask them.

    I'm pretty extroverted myself, though I DON'T like talking in front of an audience. Other than that, I'll talk to anyone.

    For me that depends on the audience. An audience of strangers I can take on easy enough, an audience of people I know and I clam right up.
