Ever wondered why you’re what you are? Why you react in a particular way and others respond in extremely different ways given the same circumstance? Perhaps, you’re an introvert; maybe an extrovert or a mix of both?
Specifically, introverts are the calm, easy-going folks. They derive their energy from spending “alone-time” all the time, or at least most of the time. If that’s you, trust me; you are not awkward. Introverts are drained at the idea of socializing as they prefer calm and minimally stimulating zones and environment.
Conversely, some individuals are the exact opposite of introverts. They are the life of the party. They breathe and live for the buzz. They are outgoing and have a hard time fighting off attention and interaction. With them, it is safe to say, nature draws people to them and they love it. They are further characterized and distinguished by their social circles and disgust for alone time. They love the energy around people, are risk prone individuals and are more vocal about issues and situations. They are a bunch of many shades and their greatest strength lies in their flexibility – they are known to require no special effort or mental evaluation to get a social activity going.
Well, some individuals do not fall into these categories – they are the ambiverts. They are in the middle (neither here nor there). Ambiverts have mastered the positive aspects of both personality elements. They exude balance, are good listeners knowing when to speak and listen and are capable of adjusting personality balance to any of the situations at hand. They are much more comfortable in a social setting and yet value alone time. In fact, they often help break the cycle of silence of introverts thus making them more comfortable in striking a conversation.
These personalities are all great, with strengths and weaknesses so to say. It’s time to find out where your power lies.. Take the personality quiz and tell us what you think.
