One of my favorite classes in high school AND college was psychology. I am FASCINATED by the brain and all that it is capable of. I’m fascinated by personality traits. I LOVE personality tests and seeing different people’s personality types. I just think that stuff is so interesting!
I have loved taking different personality tests over the years to see if things about me change and, while sometimes they do, most of the time, they haven’t.
One of the things that people are always interested to learn about me is that I am, technically, an introvert. Everyone always assumes that I’m an extrovert because I have a bold, bubbly, and loud personality. I have no trouble talking to new people and I make friends pretty quickly. I am super open and love to welcome people into my home and host events. I LOVE public speaking and, well, I used to do comedy! So, of course, everyone thinks that because of all of that, I’m an extrovert.
BUT, that’s not the case… I’m totally an introvert.
While I may be “good” at talking to people and putting myself out there, it’s not where I get my energy from, if that makes sense. At the end of the day, I love nothing more than to just unwind alone with a book or just have a one-on-one conversation with my husband or a close friend or family member.
At the end of big events, I am exhausted! Big groups can sometimes overwhelm me and I tend to want to just retreat to a corner and talk to one person I know… BUT, I always try to push myself when I get in those situations and step outside of my comfort zone and meet new people or try something new. And I (almost) always never regret it.
I think that’s why I’m just so glad to be home right now after traveling so much over the last month. I think I’m just straight up worn out…
What about you? Are you an introvert all the way or an extrovert all the way? Or are you an extroverted introvert? Or is there even such thing as an introverted extrovert?
