I love this word! I started using it about 5 years ago after getting seriously annoyed with all the Briggs-Myer pseudo-science classifications. I couldn’t find the word in any dictionary so I was pleasantly surprized when it surfaced as the Wednesday Winner. Good choice.
Introvert and extrovert, ambivert, it’s funny this text message box requires me to add that as as word for the browser that I am using. Ambivalent is a good word, too. That which caught the attention though, is the misspelling of the word surprised. Rather than use a soft dental aspiration for the 19th letter you were spelling it with a more accentuated dental sound and the understanding of that sound was notated using the 26th letter of the general Roman/Latin alphabet that we are using here. A good word for you as an abecedarian or aficionado would be onomatopoeia. That is a sound like any sound or any word/sound that is suppose to resemble the sound of an event or thing other than that which you think is or isn’t yourself, i.e. vroom, swoosh, swish, splash, etc…
According to a quiz that I had taken yesterday on the Encyclopedia Britannica website the Chinese system of characters is known to have 85,000 characters, ideographs. I thought I would just throw that out there because I, don’t speak Chinese or other languages fluently, as I do American English. I do know this: ver ollon, pedwar, du, dubi, glastu, penno, capo, deus rix, zero’th, shi, lian, tsu, bu, ni hao, er, ni, zhong, qi.

and…Ade, Ade’, however, is still African, that is a Yoruba word given as the name to both male and female, primarily males, and meaning, crown royal. Pertaining to royalty anyways.
