Personality Type “We live in an extrovert world; about 75% of people are extroverts, leaving 25% to be introverts.” (The Introvert Advantage by Marti Laney) We are different in faces and nature as we have individual differences that make life unique to others .
We are all a blend ofintroverted and extrovertedcharacteristics. You can nothave the benefits anddownfalls of only onepersonality type.
Introverts Carl Jung introduced the “introversion” and “extroversion” terms. Introversion as “the state of or tendency toward being wholly or predominantly concerned with and interested in one’s own mental life.”
Introverts are: Reserved Shy Solitary Relate to others through one’s experiences Be misunderstood by strangers
Extroverts C. Jung defined extroversion as “the act, state, or habit of being predominantly concerned with and obtaining gratification from what is outside the self.”
Psychic Energy The correct definition Jung gave introversion and extroversion is the direction of psychic energy. If you have an inner flow of psychic energy, your energy builds from solitude making you an introvert. If you have an outward flow of psychic energy, your energy builds from interactions with people making you an extrovert.
Introversion and Extroversion Model Since Jung, the Myer-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) test is famous for its accuracy at defining people’s personality type. Introversion and extroversion is one of four dichotomies in a MBTI test, but by itself provides a lot of insight into your own way of feeling and behaving.
Jung said the degree of introversion and extroversion varies along a continuum. We exist between the two extremes.
Introverts Versus Extroverts A study by Dr. Debra Johnson tells, Introverts brains were stimulated more than extroverts; they had intense blood flow through brain regions responsible for memory, planning, and problem solving. She concluded based on blood flow in the brain that introverts revel in their inner world while extroverts direct their focus on the outer world.
You cannot transform yourself from one personality type to the other but you can change from an introvert to an extrovert in the sense that you can become more social.
There is a lot to love about your personality so stop being ashamed of it. Whether you are an introvert or extrovert, you can make friends, persuade people, and live a life you enjoy.
Accepting and enjoying your dominant personality traits can lead you to a happier and fulfilled life.
