I was wondering if there was research done on whether depression was significantly more/less common in people who were extroverted versus introverted, but also whether the signs and symptoms of depression showed a distinct pattern between the different types of people.

Did not find an obvious answer to my question, but a few free online tests (the Psychology Today gives a snapshot report for free, but you have an option to spend for the full report), plus an article or two.

Short quiz:

Various articles.

Something different, called an "ambivert" plus a link to a test.
