Lone wolf or social butterfly, if you had to pick one? (introvert or extrovert?)

Lone wolf. totally an introvert, passive/aggressive

Do you isolate? If so, why?

yes. I don't like being around most people, even those I considered friends. It is just too hard these days. I get what I call 'crusty'... a feeling of extreme sleepyness and a severe need to be alone.

At times. I can do a weeks worth of work in a few hours, or at times (less often) an hours worth of work in a week

How do you express your creativity?

I don't

When you're at your most creative, what kind of mood are you generally in?

Elevated, happy, almost extatic. LOOK AT WHAT I CAN DO!

Do you read often?

I used too. Now my ADD is too bad to read a book without taking a few weeks and my memory is such that by the time i get to the end I've forgotten the beginning.

I try to keep a journal. It ranges from every day to 5 or 6 times a month depending upon mood.

1 - totally socially unaware. everything is a threat. everything is against me. Avoid at all costs

Do you have/experience social anxiety?

Yes. See previous questino

How are your social interaction skills? (Communication skills?)

Non existant. The only exception is if I'm paying for your time (ie therapist, psychiatrist). Then I tell the truth, all of it, good and bad.
