A very interesting post on Story Empire today from Mae Clair about writers and personality traits.
Are writers introverts? So many of us say we are, but personality tests show that how we view ourselves is not always how others view us. I’ve been subjected to a number of personality and team-building profiles in the business world and I always find them interesting.

Do you focus on the outer world (Extraversion • E) or the inner world (Introversion • I)
Do you focus on the basic information you take in (Sensing • S) or do you interpret and add meaning (Intuition • N)
Do you look at logic and consistency first (Thinking • T) or people and special circumstances (Feeling • F)
