There are no bad sides of being both of them. Introverts and extroverts describe what type of soul a person has and what’s his openness status.
Some peoples luxury is to open up to someone else, while on the other side, some people seem to open up to the guy he/she met a couple of minutes ago. Some people have soul opened to every wind, and some people’s souls are clustered inside with iron fence.
Both of them are authentic, but some people prefer to be examined and some want to give all the answers before you even meet them.
Being an Introvert
“I’m rarely bored alone; I’m often bored in groups and crowds.”
Introversion is “the state of or tendency toward being wholly or predominantly concerned with and interested in one’s own mental life”
Being an introvert is like having five cemented doors before entering in one’s soul. It’s the type of person that has a “map of treasure” to follow through, if anybody wants to have a deep insight.
By definition, an introvert is a shy, reticent, and typically self-centered person. It’s a person who prefers to find joy with oneself, rather than searching the joy with others. It’s a great thing that introverts depend on themselves, which is the thing we are taught since childhood “depend on no one but you.” We’ve been sabotaged and disappointed from a person that sometimes relying on oneself is not an option, but an authentic choice.
It’s not like: “Okay well I’m introvert person.” An introvert is also a self-centered person. Being preoccupied with oneself and one’s affairs is what an introvert refers to. It means to have high opinion of one and nobody can break that down.
We can discover if we are introverts by answering one question. DO YOU like being around people and are fascinated by them, or do you tend to be more with yourself rather than around people and self-seeking and self-interested?
Introverts have one bad side, they rarely open up to people and sometimes they even get a little to cagey. They are afraid that if they show their soul to someone, they might be hurt or not loved. The hardest thing for introverts is opening up to someone and not being accepted by that person, especially the one they love, which is not so different from an extrovert.
Being an Extrovert
“When people assume something’s wrong because you don’t feel like talking.”
The quote I just mentioned shows what an extroverts looks like, or the sign “Please disturb. Extrovert at work.”
Extraversion is “the act, state, or habit of being predominantly concerned with obtaining gratification from what is outside the self.”
Extrovert person is like a wild horse. Talking and seeking for action with another group of people or crowd just to satisfy ones needs and to spend all the energy. Its type of person that wants to live a fast pace life and usually rely on more risks than introverts. Wild horse is the closest imaginative picture of how one extrovert behaves.
An outgoing, overly expressive person and sociable “life of the party” type of person is an extrovert. They need peoples energies around them if they want to sustain their satisfaction levels up.
They have seeded thought that life should be lived to the fullest, everything at once and people and crowd is a must. They have successful management carriers, enjoying with public relations, great salesman and everything connected with people.
They also have bad side and that’s gambling. Although walking along with the thought “live life to the fullest” they accomplish many things and they also accomplish many bad things. They think that “screw it, let’s do it” is better than thinking about it twice. Sometimes it leads them with the head in the wall and dip down and sometimes that wall is weak and they manage to ramshackle it.
The differences between introverts and extroverts
Belonging to each group is making this world go round. One group gets satisfied with people, while the other is more self-centered and they find joy with themselves.
Every group of people such as friendship or a company sustains from introverts and extroverts mixed together. That’s like a golden rule for every group. Just look around your friends and colleagues, you will find more of the opposite than you are and that’s the reason why that group works. There must be variable characteristics to make a whole. Whatever you are, introvert or extrovert, don’t force yourself to be the opposite. That’s the thing that screws us most, finding “me” and letting “me” slip through our hands
