What's Your Personality Type?
Extroverts are more likely:
Loves to engage with others, have very little difficulty socializing
Take on leadership roles rather than a follower role
Enjoys being the center of attention
Tends to react before thinking
Feels isolated by too much time spent alone
Shares opinions easily
Confident and secure in him/herself and his or her opinions
According to psychiatrist Carl Jung, extroversion is defined as the ability of turning the interests and energies of the mind toward events, people and things in the world about us. People who are extroverts are usually concerned more about the practical realities of life, rather than to one's inner thoughts and feelings. Unlike introverts, these enthusiastic individuals very rarely require much time to get used to people within a group. Extroverts are usually able to engage well with both people they know as well as people they do not know.
Introverts are more likely:
Enjoy your solitude
You like to think about and plan out what you are going to say before saying it.
Enjoy spending time alone
Are typically less assertive than extroverts
Deliberate over an issue rather than jump to conclusions
Appear shy & timid around people that they don’t know but lively with people they know
Are more patient in comparison to extroverts
Attentive to detail
Introverts can typically become very self-aware and intense around others, which can cause them to over plan and over think things that are often ignored by extroverts. For many introverts identifying the right things to say and the right time to say them can be very challenging. Just like extroverts, introverts can be social people. However, they will reveal less of themselves at a gradual pace once they have gotten used to you and after they have really reflected on their thoughts.
