Introvert vs. extrovert

  1. 1. INTROVERT VS EXTROVERT
  2. 2. INTROVERT • Introvert comes from Latin intro-, "inward," and vertere, "turning." It describes a person who tends to turn inward mentally. Introverts sometimes avoid large groups of people, feeling more energized by time alone • A term introduced by the psychologist Carl Jung to describe a person whose motives and actions are directed inward. Introverts tend to be preoccupied with their own thoughts and feelings and minimize their contact with other people.
  3. 3. EXTROVERT • It was borrowed from German extravertiert, from the prefix extra- "outside, beyond" plus Latin vertere "to turn." • A term introduced by the psychologist Carl Jung to describe a person whose motives and actions are directed outward. Extroverts are more prone to action than contemplation, make friends readily, adjust easily to social situations, and generally show warm interest in their surroundings.
  4. 4. MISCONCEPTION AND FACTS ABOUT INTROVERTS
  5. 5. Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public. Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public for as long. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. Myth #2 – Introverts are shy. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking.
  6. 6. Myth #3 – Introverts don’t like to talk. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days. Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people. On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life.
  7. 7. Myth #5 – Introverts always want to be alone. Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with one person at a time.
  8. 8. MISCONCEPTION AND FACTS ABOUT EXTROVERTS
  9. 9. Myth #1 - Extroverts don’t want to be alone. Just because extroverts are perceived to enjoy being in the company of others and are usually seen with other people, there are times when extroverts need to be alone. Interacting excessively with others can also tire them out. Myth #2 - Extroverts need to be the center of attention. Extroverts are generally more outgoing, confident and sociable, so they naturally draw more attention to themselves. However, they are not purposely trying to attract attention.
  10. 10. Myth #3 - Extroverts enjoy public speaking. Even though extroverts are perceived to be more confident and sociable, they have the same fear as anyone when speaking in public. They are sometimes afraid that they will not meet the expectations of their peers. Myth #4 - Extroverts like to talk and can’t be silent. They are more comfortable to talk about their thoughts out loud, but they are not necessarily inconsiderate of other people’s needs. They know when to be quiet, what to say and when to listen in different situations.
  11. 11. Myth #5 - Extroverts have a lot of energy. Extroverts may appear to have a lot of energy when around others, but when they are by themselves they are just as drained as an introvert in a social situation. Again, they are just human too and run on the same amount of fuel.
