introverted

You are probably introverted if you prefer solitude over socializing, or like to reflect upon your own perceptual experiences rather than seek adventure.

Introverted comes from the modern Latin introvertere, from intro-, meaning “to the inside,” and vertere, meaning “to turn.” Someone who is introverted prefers to turn inward toward their own thoughts and experiences, rather than to reach outward for experiences with other people.
