I thought of myself as passive which is how I’ve been my whole life, I’m stuck in that gear I think! Then I took the test, I think it may lack a little depth, but I think my results were probably fairly accurate:

60% Passive
30% Aloof
10% Stilted

I took the test:

50% Stilted
20% Active but Odd
20% Aloof
10% Passive

Sounds about right.

I'm pretty much "active, but odd," these days.

I used to be quite "stilted."

There's a "passive/apathetic" aspect to me.

I'm only "aloof" if somebody tries to stop me, say, from watching an old ballgame on YouTube.

I couldn´t have described this more precisely myself.
I´m wary of being "tactile", though.... but I like a warm hug.

3. Active but odd group, who make active approaches but have no real understanding of how to interact socially. Tend to be very tactile.

I think my tendency to be rather forward really puts me in vulnerable positions sometimes. I sometimes unintentionally steamroll people in a conversation. Other times people want me to go away but won't say so very clearly, they'll even invite me to stuff out of politeness, but then I hear someone talking about me behind my back later. For example: "I hope she doesn't come to the party." Then I realize my judgement of the situation was a little off.

My inability to judge when someone is just politely responding to me versus genuinely enjoying their interaction with me makes me a bit paranoid. Some days I feel like no one wants me around, and that maybe I should just spend time alone so that I don't bother anyone. It's really hard for me to host a party for this reason. I am afraid no one will show up (it happened once). I tend to just go to other people's things instead. That way I don't have to find out who around me isn't a real friend, and I can also bail if I'm not feeling it.

The tactile thing is hilariously accurate. I actually keep a collection of fake grapes in bowls around my place because I like the way they feel. I think most people assume they're just decoration. :lol:
I'm also one of those people who can't do socks or underwear with seams.

My results:

50% Active but odd
20% Aloof
20% Passive
10% Stilted

I probably move through all four ways of doing the social stuff.

I would say friendly but passive. On the quieter side, but more or less easygoing but also reserved. Generally a people-pleaser having an underlying anxiety.. I am opened to making new friends, but I am a person who it takes a while to get to know overall.

Out of these options, probably somewhere between passive and aloof. Or I come across as aloof if I don't know people very well.

All glory to the hypnotoad.
