in a sense this partially describes why I am introverted with some people. usually, I am introverted with people and then when I become more comfortable with them, I become more extroverted. but with some people, I am totally introverted because I get an idea of their personality. one person is an admitted drama queen and I get entertainment out of her drama. She is also judgmental when it comes to certain things I have told her about me. So I let her do most of the talking and I keep everything bottled up about me usually.

at the same time, she complains that I keep everything bottled up and has expressed concerned about my being introverted and all that. she has not drawn the correlation that I don't like being judged adversely which is why I listen and let her do most of the talking.
