Would you consider yourself more of an introvert or an extrovert? If you were Lee, would you have gone to the bar with Carla, or gone home alone?

Lee is very independent, and a bit of an introvert. She routinely turns down invitations to go out with friends, like Carla and Peggy. Would you consider yourself more of an introvert or an extrovert? If you were Lee, would you have gone to the bar with Carla, or gone home alone?

Definitely an introvert here. I might let myself to be persuaded to head out with friends on occasion, but generally under every controlled circumstances. I don't think Carla qualifies as controlled. In this case, finding Barry as a witness to Jeremy's relationship with Sam made the risk pay off.

I am a reluctant extrovert but definitely enjoy my solitude. Guessing this might be the case for many book lovers! I do feel more of an affinity with Lee, especially since Carla seems to be trying so hard to find Mr. Right.

I believe my heart and soul are introverted, however, no one I have ever known agrees with that. I guess I'm just a very quiet person who expresses herself with a very big mouth. I loved Carla and she is exactly the kind of friend Lee or I would go to a bar with. Some of the most interesting people on God's Earth can be found in bars and beauty salons. People who dwell in those spots are most times very open and honest and one can walk away with enough deep thought provoking material for several books. Loved the way Carla constantly changed her hair color and clothing style to fit each occasion.

Definitely an introvert. Most of the time I would go home. Because it was case related, the jaunt with Carla was in character. The idea of a birthday party would make me as grumpy as Lee.

I think I can be either - introvert or extrovert. Is there a name for someone with both tendencies?

I think depending on the situation which I tend to be. There are times that I crave other people, noise, activity and then times I must be alone.

Lee made a wise decision going home. When in the position of holding another life in your hands, solitude would be my preference.

I'm an ambivert. It depends on the situation. I have a need to be around people. Being with people gives me energy. So yes I would have gone to the bar.

Oh my, I'm almost off the charts when it comes to being an introvert. I find having to make small talk with people for any length of time exhausting and I can't wait to be by myself again. After spending a couple of hours with people I don't know I can't even listen to the car radio for a while!

I’m an extreme introvert, as well! I wouldn’t go to the bar and I would relish my time alone especially if I was with other people all day long

Introversion or extroversion is more an indication of how one gets one energy. In Myers-Briggs I am right on the line but from experience I can tell you I am definitely more of an introvert. I need quiet at the end of the day to recharge. I would not have gone for a drink but would have gone home to read a book and recharge. I own a bookstore and am "on" all day as I work with customers and vendors. When I get home I want to just chill.

I consider myself an introvert who needs quiet, alone time. However, I do enjoy time with good friends. I would have gone with Carla because of our relationship and the hope that we would move the case forward.

I am definitely an introvert. That being said, throughout my career as a teacher, I often found myself having to spend a lot of after work hours engaged in any number of activities with a lot of people! Despite Lee preferring solitude herself, I believe she recognized the need to go with Carla to the bar to wait for the witness. Lee respected Carla as an investigator and while their personal interests were very different, I think Lee knew the value of her relationship with Carla. Sometimes, you do things you don't like to do to support your friends and colleagues. Sad to say, it probably isn't wise for a woman to sit alone in a bar these days as well. Lee seems to be more comfortable spending time with men. I think it was important that she went as a way of continuing to move forward in her own life- -and nurturing a friendship with another woman.

Due to the fact that Carla and Lee worked so closely on a number of cases, I feel certain Carla knew Lee was questioning her abilities after losing her last case. I think some of her attempts to engage Lee in more social outings was an attempt to be supportive and encouraging- -keeping Lee focused on something other than whether she "still has it".

I am definitely more of an extrovert. I would have enjoyed going to the bars with Carla.

I am a very much introvert and I most likely would have gone home alone ;)

I am a definite introvert and almost always turn down casual invitations, especially to go to a bar. The idea of being surrounded by strangers is simply not appealing. I find small talk very hard work. I'd rather be home reading!

I am a definite introvert but can "play" at being an extrovert and enjoy it - for a little while. I would have gone with Carla this time because I think it's important to nurture friendships, and,(full disclosure) to be a little manipulative here, I'm going to need Carla's help. But I certainly understand Lee's reluctance.

When I was younger, I definitely felt I was an introvert. As I have gotten older, however, I believe I am an extrovert. I would have gone to the bar with Carla. I love being out and around people, although I have my moments when I like a quiet time just sitting an reading.

I was rooting for Lee to go out with Carla. It would develop into a supportive and caring relationship for both. Lee was at a point where she needed new relationships and needed to try something new. I was born an introvert but had to become an extrovert for my job! Sometimes i've done that kind of thing and sometimes not. Sometimes it works and sometimes not!

Definitely an extrovert when in the company of others, but am perfectly happy with chosen solitude. Not being into the bar scene I would most probably decline the invitation, but then can I compare it to "the road not taken"?

I am the middle of the two (introvert/extrovert)....I am situational dependent. I love to go out with friends, but I love being alone as well....I would’ve gone to the bar with Carla....at least for a little while...??

Definitely an introvert. I would have gone home mostly because I dislike bars, though. I do enjoy going other places with friends.
