Life of a Blogger: Introvert or Extrovert?

I don't know much about Extrovert or Introvert but I did see it around the Internet. I never really bothered to look into what they mean.

Extrovert: a person who’s interest is more in his environment and in other people than in himself; a person who is active and expressive.
  • They need friends and make them more readily than introverts
  • They tend to seek out careers that allow them to interact frequently with others
  • They make their presence known more obviously than introverts in group situations
  • They tend to be expansive in their body movements, gesture often, and dress colorfully than introverts
  • They tend to travel farther and move more often than introverts
  • They display less incline to suffer from migraines, ulcers, colitis, and certain types of heart diseases than are introverts
  • Most extroverts prefer to work late at night as opposed to early in the morning

Introvert: a shy person. a person characterized by concern with his own thoughts and feelings.
  • They prefer to be alone or in small groups and do not need or want many friends
  • They tend to seek out careers where they do not have to meet and greet in public
  • They do not seek attention in group situations
  • They tend to inhibit and restrict their body movements and gestures and to dress in a subdued (restrained, soften, controlled) fashion
  • They tend to limit their traveling and stay in one place for longer periods
  • They display greater fears and apprehensions (suspicion) than extroverts
  • They are inclined to suffer from internalizing their feelings by getting anxiety-related diseases such as migraines, ulcers, colitis, and certain heart disease
  • Most introverts prefer to work early in the morning as opposed to late at night

I am a Introvert. I am a shy person, have been all my life. When I was in school, I was quiet. I didn't like to work in groups. I was also/still am that person who would ignore calls. If I meet new people, I don't what to say, I wouldn't know how to start a conversation or keep the conversation going. It just makes me awkward and uncomfortable. The only time I'm loud is when I'm at home with my family. If I don't like something I will say something. Just because I'm quiet, doesn't mean I got nothing to say. 

I am that person who would rather read a book then go to a club. I like to go out to places like the museum, zoo, park, mall, movie theater. I don't know if this is Introvert or just mean but sometimes people get on my nerves and I think they are stupid. Some people do stupid things and that is what I mostly see in this world. I get annoyed quickly but I do have a sense of humor. I would rather work with animals then people. 
I think the only time I am an Extrovert is when I'm with my mother or brother but after awhile I like to get away from them too.

  1. You should definitely read Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking. It talks a lot about being an introvert, and how being an extrovert ISN'T better, which is something most people think.

    It's a really good read and it boosted my confidence about being an introvert :)

    1. thank you, i'll pick it up next month.

  2. I think I am an in-betweener, best of the both worlds I guess!

  3. I never thought that being an introverted/extroverted person can influence so many things! I think I will have to look some more into this matter. Thank you for your great post!
    Should you be interested in participating, I have nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award! :)

  4. I'm the same way!
    "If I don't like something I will say something. Just because I'm quiet, doesn't mean I got nothing to say."
    *nods* I have no problem speaking up and calling someone out if they mess with me, but for the most part I keep to myself!
