Ordinarily it can be said that Extroverts are outgoing and introverts are shy. But that’s not really the true definition of these understanding each personality type and which one you are–can help you manage a vast range of experiences. First of all you have to do a simple task .you have to observe yourself very carefully .you have to find out that whether you like to hang out with friends? , whether you like to be sociable? Whether you take the initiative to make friends? Or you like to spend quality time with yourself, like to enjoy your own company, and don’t like to be socially involved in any event. After observing yourself on the following grounds you can make out easily that whether you fall in the category of extroverts or introverts. If we go a bit farther back, we find that the termsintrovert andextrovert(originally spelled

extravert) were popularized by Carl Jung in the early 20th century. But
unfortunately there meaning got confused between then and now. And everybody
Started seeing themselves in one of the two categories. But that’s not like that,
Carl’s point was that these are the very extremes of a scale. Which means that
most of us fall somewhere in the middle. There is no such person who is purely an introvert or extrovert. People usually are a mix of both. Every person likes to be social but up to a certain limit. Every person wants to hangs out with friends but they have a limited friends circle. From the above discussion we must be thinking that extrovert is positive trait and introvert is rather a type of negative trait but no that’s not true. introverts people are known for thinking things through before they speak, enjoying small, close groups of friends and one-on-one time, needing time alone to recharge,and being upset by unexpected changes or last-minute surprises. Introverts are not usually shy they just need some time alone or just with close friends rather than being with a big crowd. Extroverts are Gregarious, Assertive and Expressive whereas introverts are internally aware, Independent and thoughtful. And if you are a mix of both the traits then it’s the best mix for human personality. And that mix is called ambiverts. ambiverts have both the traits and act according to the given situation. They know very well that in which situation they need to be introvert and vise a versa. So, on the ending note I would like to say that a mix of both is good. Alone extrovert or alone introvert can become be a bit issue sometimes.
