Introvert, Extrovert, and Ambivert
Introverts, extroverts, and ambiverts are types of personalities that define a person. It’s a personality type because it is who you are, you cannot change it.
Do you think an introvert is a person who is quiet or blinkered, who wants to spend time alone and avoid social situations?
Well, being an introvert isn’t all that. They do spend time with people around them and have worthwhile friendships. They like to keep their own company. They are comfortable talking with few people and they can get uncomfortable when they are in public places with a lot of people.
An extrovert is like one of those hyperactive people who get extremely excited for the smallest of reasons. Extroverts are those outgoing people who cannot live without going out and if they are at home for a day they get bored and irritated.
As an introvert, you like spending time on your own, or in the very small close group of people, you trust. So, when you are out in a social environment that is very highly invigorating, what happens is that while the extrovert gets more and more radiant and compelling, the introvert starts shrinking and shrinking away.
Extroverts may like to meet 50 people at an event and get a thrill from talking to as many people as possible. Meanwhile, an introvert probably aspires to get to know just two new people, but they will hope to nurture the beginnings of a personal relationship.
Introversion is not an insult, it’s just a different way of living to other people. And wherever you are on the introversion-extroversion range, the most important thing is learning how to use your differences to your advantage.
But not all are introverts or extroverts some of them are something called as an Ambivert, like people who are on both sides of the scale. For them, there are days where they can get irritated when they cannot go out and there are times when they’re outside, but they don’t want to be around with so many people.
I think most of us fall under the ambivert scale. You could check online quizzes to check which spectrum you fall into.
