introverts and extroverts
Transcript of introverts and extroverts
he observed in
others. INTROVERSION: "attitude-type characterized by
orientation in life through subjective
psychic contents." EXTROVERSION: "an attitude type characterized by
concentration of interest on the
external object." -Carl Jung The terms literally mean "inward-turning" and "outward-turning" Introverts recharge from spending time alone. Extroverts recharge from spending time with people. *direct their "energy" inwards *direct their energy outwards No one is completely introverted or extroverted; people move around on
the continuum. Ambiverts: The 70% of the population that fall
in between being "introverted" or
"extroverted", meaning they possess
qualities of being both. Ambiverts Hans Eysenck Another psychologist who went
on to popularize these terms and
developed his own theories about
why people were introverted or
extroverted. His theory: Introverts were more sensitive
to outside stimulation, much
more than extroverts, which is
why they tend to avoid certain
social situations and feel depleted
after being around people for too
long. On the other hand, because
extroverts are less sensitive to
outside stimulation, they seek
more of it and feel
energized by it. Introversion and extroversion in
childhood Introverted kids: -play easily and
happily by themselves
for long intervals of
-like to watch activities
before joining in. Extroverted kids: -get bored quickly
prefer company. -jump right in and initiate
new games and activities. Start with small talk and then
move on to deeper conversation Introverts: Do the opposite; an introvert will
start with a deeper conversation and then
end with lighter conversation. Does introverted mean shy? No, they are two separate things. Both introverts and extroverts
can be shy! Shyness is a social anxiety disorder that makes one avoid others because of a fear of rejection. Introversion is normal and a preference
for being alone sometimes, not because
one is scared of being rejected. Why introversion is confused for shyness: Both introverts and
shy people are for the most part, quiet. The majority of introverts feel
relatively uncomfortable in situations where they are being judged by others. Introverts think a lot before
acting on something, while
extroverts usually express their opinion quickly and move on
before the introvert has the
chance to say much. Introverts avoid too much social
interaction because it makes them feel sick to the head and exhausted, while a shy person avoids it because they are afraid of negative judgement. Introverts like to watch sometimes
over physically participating. Introverts prefer smaller groups
of close friends, less social interaction and prefer thinking and writing first over talking. "Come out of your shell" Growing up, introverts are
called "shy" a lot, even if they are not. Being called
too shy constantly makes
introverted people feel
like there is something
wrong with their natural
habits and can hurt their
self image. Jobs Introverts and extroverts
