ARE YOU REALLY AN INTROVERT, EXTROVERT OR AN AMBIVERT

  

First how can a person know if he/she is really an Introvert (Shy, Quiet, and Timid) or an Extrovert (Socialize, Outgoing and Enthusiastic) or even an Ambivert (in the middle), the only I think is to  and  for those who don't know what it means, here's a few differences between this kind of individuals.

Extra-version

Extra-version (Extroverts) is the state of primarily obtaining gratification from outside oneself. Extroverts tend to enjoy human interactions and to be enthusiastic, talkative, assertive, and gregarious. Extroverts are energized and thrive off being around other people. They take pleasure in activities that involve large social gatherings, such as parties, community activities, public demonstrations, and business or political groups. They also tend to work well in groups. An extroverted person is likely to enjoy time spent with people and find less reward in time spent alone. They tend to be energized when around other people, and they are more prone to boredom when they are by themselves.

Intro-version


Introversion (Introverts) is the state of being predominantly interested in one's own mental self. Introverts are typically perceived as more reserved or reflective. Some popular psychologists have characterized introverts as people whose energy tends to expand through reflection and dwindle during interaction. This is similar to Carl Jung's view, although he focused on mental energy rather than physical energy. Few modern conceptions make this distinction.

Introverts often take pleasure in solitary activities such as reading, writing, using computers, hiking and fishing. The archetypal artist, writer, sculptor, engineer, composer and inventor are all highly introverted. An introvert is likely to enjoy time spent alone and find less reward in time spent with large groups of people, though they may enjoy interactions with close friends. Trust is usually an issue of significance: a virtue of utmost importance to introverts is choosing a worthy companion. They prefer to concentrate on a single activity at a time and like to observe situations before they participate, especially observed in developing children and adolescents. They are more analytical before speaking. Introverts are easily overwhelmed by too much stimulation from social gatherings and engagement, introversion having even been defined by some in terms of a preference for a quiet, more minimally stimulating external environment.

Mistaking introversion for shyness is a common error. Introverts prefer solitary to social activities, but do not necessarily fear social encounters like shy people do.

The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking that modern Western culture misjudges the capabilities of introverted people, leading to a waste talent, energy and happiness. It describes how society is biased against introverts, and that, with people being taught from childhood that to be sociable is to be happy, introversion is now considered "somewhere between a disappointment and pathology".

Ambiversion

Although many people view being introverted or extraverted as mutually exclusive, most contemporary trait theories measure levels of extraversion-introversion as part of a single, continuous dimension of personality, with some scores near one end, and others near the half-way mark,see the Big Five personality traits. Ambiversion is falling more or less directly in the middle. An ambivert is moderately comfortable with groups and social interaction, but also relishes time alone, away from a crowd.

WORDS FROM CARL JONES
There is no such thing as a pure introvert or extrovert. Such a person would be in the lunatic asylum. —Carl G. Jung 

The Freedom Of Being an Ambivert
From my understanding, Jung would say that we all have “preferences” of what we would like to do, but we also have the capacity to be able to be both introverted and extroverted. And as we get older, we slowly migrate towards the center of the the continuum scale in most of our functions, as part of the self-actualization process. The majority of people, although slanted towards one side of the scale, operate using traits and preferences from both sides.
HOW THE SOCIETY VIEW THE THEORY
Basically let's look at the issue in a different perspective, no one is fully an introvert or an extrovert because anyone who is basically an Introv or an Extrov is considered a lunatic but nowadays people tend to judge themselves for being on left side or the right side. For a person to know whether he is an introvert or an extrovert he/she needs to first know their true capacity and also knowing where their positive energy is been gotten from. People tend to mistake that the introverts are the loser's, the bottom feeder's, or has there are commonly called the "NERDS". But if we take a look at the society back then and now, the introverts are leaders examples are we see Bill Gate introverts J.K. Rowling, Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Gandhi, Dr. Seuss, Yeats, Steven Spielberg and Larry Page. These people are considered as an Introvert right?, the tech guy, the computer geek, and let's not forget one of the Top known people in the world. Introverts enjoy their privacy because it helps them think and also help them focus on their true goal.

On the other hand Introverts also look at Extrovert as the less serious, Witty, Crazy and Wild can of personality. Extrovert are considered as the risk-takers, the Is always fun because you are free to express yourselves whenever and however you want to and that is where our Film and TV Star are with examples of Introvert Morgan Freeman, Arnold Schwazenegger, Jackie Chan and Chuck Norris or we look at the Music Industry nowadays examples like Bob Marly, Madonna, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber and Rihanna. these are people that like to express themselves instead of bundling it up to themselves.

WHY BEING AN AMBIVERT IS BETTER



















Ambiverts are people who don’t really prefer one way of functioning over another.  In other words, you could say they’re the neutral, middle-ground hippies. They’re equally comfortable in situations where the introvert feels most at home and situations where the extrovert is having a good time. That being said, I would consider myself an Ambivert.  I don’t feel drained from social interaction or going out shopping, and discussion energizes and invigorate me. I constantly seek dare devil risk taking stimulation, while simultaneously relishing quiet time with my books and catching up on scientific essays. I’m both overly confident, but also reclusive and critical in thought.

The freedom with Ambiversion comes in finding both Introverted and Extroverted worlds satisfying and rewarding.  Ambiversion helps you to enjoy a varied life. Ambiverts have enough introversion to slowly absorb the world around them and enough extroversion to be able to propound ideas and express themselves (through writing of verbally) without feeling depleted.

The notion of Ambiversion changed my life. Previously, when filling in a personality type questionnaire, I”d hesitate when answering questions like: “would you prefer to go to a party or read a book?”  My first thought was “Depends on the party or book and also how tired I am from the previous night.” But that contextual option wasn’t available. Now I realize what a gift it is to be sensible, reasonable and well balanced enough to have the freedom of choice.

I don’t consider people either extroverted or introverted.  Even though they maybe 49% extrovert and 51% introvert, we are equally labeled an INTJ.  Yet others with 99% introvert and 1% extrovert are still labelled INTJ’s.  Superficially we have the same label, but psychologically we are entirely different.  Knowing who you really are matters a lot because it give you inner peace.
