Have you ever wanted to be extroverted? In Japan, people who are cheerful and able to have fun with people are often called “sun character” these days.
On the other hand, “shady character” may have an unpleasant, damp image.
（← shady character | sun character →）
According to a survey by a Japanese organization, the number of extroverts was about twice that of introverts. For now, you can assume that there are roughly twice as many extroverts as introverts.
The truth is that in psychology, “extrovert” is not the same as “sociable”.
・Extroverted → Not necessarily sociable
Extrovert simply means “I like to go to parties and drinking parties and have fun.” “spend a lot of time on social activities involving people” and “good at making new friends”.
Extroversion is not a measure of “how well it works” with new friends or existing acquaintances. In other words, in psychology, extroversion does not imply good social interaction. Being good at understanding other people’s feelings and socializing are related to “Highly harmonious (be highly cooperative)”.
・Good at socializing = harmonious (be highly cooperative)
There are people who are extroverted but not cooperative. For example, “a person who is extroverted and uncooperative” may apply to people who are “love rampaging at bars and festivals”. They love to be loud, but it’s hard to believe they’re maintaining good relationships because they’re wild.
”Extroverted ✖ cooperative (harmonicity)” image (It’s a pirate image of the rough, but it could be different.)
By the way, in psychology, the perception that “shy not extroverted” is not actually true. ”not extroverted” simply means that you are not interested in socializing. That kind of person is just not interested in interacting with people, but the association of “Non-extroverted (have no interest in interacting with people) = > not sociable = > shy” works. However, in many cases, shy people are more neurotic and anxious than others, so they become shy.
I’m very extroverted and like to hang out with people, but I’m also neurotic (anxiety). So when I meet people, they compete a bit. But I love to interact with people because extroversion usually wins. I want to think that my cooperativeness is… high.
