Introverts vs. Extroverts
We are social creatures who wanna be in relationships because of peer pressure, loneliness, boredom, or the sake of novelty. Patience, integrity, active listening, self-restraint, honesty, and compassion are some of the key ingredients to the longevity of any kind of relationship. Good things take time; as Rome wasn't built in a day.
Even introverts like to have some company beside them. Introverts, shy people, and people who are anti-social all crave social interaction at some point. Introverts need some time to recharge, but not all of them are shy. Shy people have social anxiety.
Ambiverts are the middle-of-the-road type of people. Sometimes socializing energizes them, but sometimes it drains energy from them.
Extroverts absolutely love to socialize because it energizes them. According to the Personality Continuum Scale, extroverts account for 50% of the population.
The Meyers-Briggs type indicator (MBTI) personality test is a pseudoscience test, which helps people categorize their personality. It's a little bit more credible than horoscopes, but it's not a reliable source.
Are you an introvert, ambivert, or extrovert, and why?
