difference between extroverts and introverts

important in many psychology (including the MBTI described on this site) “Extroversion and introversion”. But how much do you know about the difference? Are extroverts cheerful and energetic, and introverts quiet and dark? It may be so when you look at it in a big way, but when you look at it in detail, you can sometimes see it. Here’s a summary of the differences between extroversion and introversion.

Liking stimulating situations and discussionsAvoiding stimulating situations and preferring to be alone
Learning in a stimulating environment (e.g., outdoor learning, discussions) produces resultsLearning in an unstimulating environment (modern schools) produces results
Listening to music at a loud volume (e.g., EDM)Music at normal volume
Patience for painSensitive to pain
Emphasis on quantity (emphasis on getting results quickly)Emphasis on quality (emphasis on certainty)
Lots of body language (gestures)Less body language
Saying is directSaying is indirect
Moves to seek profitMoves to avoid loss

Now, where did you fit in? There should be a “a direction of interest”. Where was it? If you imagine someone you know, you may have thought of many people who are the opposite type of people.
There is also a less well-known “bidirectional” personality that is neither extroverted nor introverted. Many people are not extremely extroverted or introverted, so they are ambiverted.

Extrovert – ambivert – introvert

In other words, when talking about extroverts and introverts, you can think of it as focusing on “Which is more inclined?”. Of course, some people are outgoing or introverted “hyperextrovert/hyperintrovert”. Of course, there are not many, but it might be you or your acquaintances.
