    Default Litmus Test for Extroversion/Introversion

    It's probably not going to give much of a correlation, I suspect, but this
    is an idea that I've tossed around the last few times I've looked at my private messages, and I'm just curious to see what the results of other forumers are.

    For the people out there who do not routinely clean up their PM inboxes (although if you clear both inbox and sent totally and at the same time, your answers are welcome): do you have more received private messages, or more sent?
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    right now i have 23 received messages and 32 sent messages; however, the received messages go back to 2/21 and the sent messages go back to 2/9. if you exclude sent messages before 2/21, i have 23 received and 20 sent, almost equal.

    probably very close to equal. If I receive a message I usually reply. If I send a message it is usually replied to.

    Hmm... well now that I checked... I have 105 received and 67 sent. But it should still be equal. Perhaps I didn't delete them equally.

    I have 317 sent and 296 received right now. I haven't cleaned out since we switched to the new forum; at the time of transition I'm pretty sure I had reached capacity for both, so the difference should be an accurate representation of my tendencies.

    I've got 2\3 received, and 1\3 sent, but that's only because I usually delete stuff soon after sending it because what I write is too embarrasing to read. I usually respond to every PM, sometimes more than once too, so I like to think that I give more than I receive.

    My ratio of sending/receiving is apparently 5/4.

    I had to empty mine a few times since the new forum. Generally more sent than received. A few people actually stay toe-to-toe with me in terms of actually responding to what I send out, but even then sometimes, like with one person, multiple pms will be reduced to one response pm. That's cool. Heh, perhaps that is a good example of E & I right there.

    Right now...

    283 Inbox, 692 Sent... but I've deleted probably 200 or more from my inbox recently to make more room for incoming private messages.

    I think a better one (but harder to measure) Gilly would be who initiated the Pms.


    I know 90% of my PMs were other people initiating it with me. It's always a pleasure, you guys.


    Btw: 126 in, 128 out.

    Inbox > Outbox. ~ 6:1 ratio. (To prevent jokes on my behalf I am skipping the actual numbers.)

    I have more in my inbox than in my out box. But that might be because, like SubT, I delete a lot of the ones I send because I have little desire to reread them again.

    my real number is 150 in;227 sent (which is kinda weird 'cause I rarely send PMs unless responding)

    I've never deleted anything... the rollover does that for you once it gets filled up

    How do you set it to do that? I've had to manually delete mine a few times.

    lol I have 3 incoming and 0 outgoing pm's. And one of the incoming ones is some mass-pm of dubious pictures of Ezra.

    Although I remember responding at least once, but that has disappeared.
    ...the human race will disappear. Other races will appear and disappear in turn. The sky will become icy and void, pierced by the feeble light of half-dead stars. Which will also disappear. Everything will disappear. And what human beings do is just as free of sense as the free motion of elementary particles. Good, evil, morality, feelings? Pure 'Victorian fictions'.
