Personality is defined as “the combination of characteristics or qualities that form an individual’s unique character.”Based on characteristics, there are two types of personality, i.e. introvert and extrovert. When a person is reserved and does not open up easily, he or she is said to be an introvert. On the contrary, when a person is social, talkative and makes friends quickly, then his personality type is extrovert.

Introversion and extroversion are considered core aspects of personality. The concept of introversion and extroversion was pioneered by the legendary psychologist Carl Jung.. A study shows that introverts and extroverts show activity in different brain structures which mirror the wildly opposing aspects of their personalities.

INTROVERTS ARE -

  1. Good listeners

  2. Self sufficient

  3. Super focused

  4. Easy to please

  5. Observant

  6. Good at studying

  7. Trustworthy people

  8. Committed to their goals

  9. In touch with their feelings

  10. Thought provoking when you get them talking.

EXTROVERT ARE -

  1. Talkative

  2. Sociable

  3. Action printer

  4. Enthusiastic

  5. Friendly

  6. Out-going

  7. Attention seeking

  8. Easily distracted

  9. Unable to spend time alone

  10. Having broad interests

A person who remains isolated, or enjoys the company of few closed ones and keeps himself busy in thinking, is called an introvert. An outgoing and outspoken person who enjoys being around and talking to people is an extrovert.

By nature, introverts are self-contained and reserved, whereas extroverts are friendly, talkative and gregarious.

When it comes to speaking, introverts listen more than they speak and in fact they think twice or thrice before speaking. On the other hand, extroverts are completely different, they think as they speak and so they speak their minds out.

If we talk about spending time, introverts get rejuvenated when they spend time with themselves and so they avoid social interaction. As against this, extroverts like to spend time with family, friends, etc. and love getting social.

Introverts seem to be quiet but their minds are loud as well as active. On the contrary, extroverts are outside thinkers, as they can handle any situation by verbally communicating with others.
