Would this refer to exposing the ways of "thought and thinking"? What I
find so amazing is regarding my thinking mind is a hindrance to "Self".
It is my thinking mind I am using to write this? Or, who is writing
these words? If I suspended my thinking would my words be different?
...I wanted to try writing without my thinking mind but nothing happened
- or did it?
Mmmm...I have to "not" think about that!

Introvert as a description isn't very helpful for meditation. If there
were a majority of meditators that took a similar test they would most
likely be described in the same manner.
Meditation isn't a group activity and for the entirety of practice, the
focus is self-situated, as-if there are those that are not self
oriented, even in group activities.
If we meditate to better relate to others or the world at large then it
remains a self focus in reflection.To be a healthy self or learn of love
or anger or any assorted trait, all are self
oriented activities, which benifits are seen through
the eyes of the other to formulate those traits
The encompassing qualifier for meditation can be said to
dissolve any hindrance to self by exposing the ways of
the reflective other, without introversed or extroverted
