I find Tann's comment interesting, specifically the bit about introverts having a "higher resting level..." Psyching up before a session or lift leaves me burned out shortly after a few warm ups or only a single heavy attempt. I'm extremely introverted...

I do prefer to lift alone.
Training is simple/abbreviated.
Low reps at higher intensities.
Clear mind, no psych up.
I like loud music but no interruptions. I think I use the loud music to drown out my own thoughts more than anything.
Need my alone time and often a lot of it (drives, walks, long shits, etc)
Not a fan of crowds.
Sociable, friendly, but somewhat shy... no problems with a handful of people, but beyond that I usually keep quiet.

For comparison, introvert but:

I prefer to workout alone.
I like long or short exercise routines and have no preference on either.
I don't mind high, low, or medium reps; or using a combo of all 3.
Progress is the goal but stalling is preferable to backsliding.
I lift in silence but do cardio to different beats.
I don't nap but don't normally do well on a bad night's sleep (apart from the odd occasion where I survive on 1hr).
I detest crowded and or noisy places.
I prefer to avoid stressful people.
I'm sociable, friendly, but shy.


Oh...and, I'm a Leo
