I took a behavioral assessment test called DISC the other day, and it pegged me as an extrovert. This felt very strange to me, as I tend to prefer to spend time in my own council. One of the primary tendencies of an introvert is to enjoy time alone, and use that time alone to rejuvenate. That suits me. However, I’ve also done online personality tests that peg me as an Ambivert: someone who is neither introvert nor extrovert but right in the middle, sort of like an ambidextrous person is both left-handed and right-handed. Ironically, I am also somewhat ambidextrous, as well.
However, I want to cast all that aside. I regenerate by reading a good book. I think there should be “biblioversion”… someone who regenerates by reading a book. It’s not an actual word as far as I can tell, but it’s true for me.
Is it true for you as well? Do you read to regenerate and relax? Please let me know in the comments below.
