"Life belongs to the flexible, one who can move from extroversion to introversion and from introversion to extroversion as easily as you move outside your house and inside your house." ~ Osho
I discovered today that I am an ambivert; I am a person whose personality move from being extrovert to introvert, from introvert to extrovert; learning about ambivert personality was very powerful and informative for me. I recognized myself.
This is what I learned:
An extrovert is a person who is friendly and outgoing, who is energized by being around other people. Extroverts are very curious; interested in and concerned with the external world. They enjoy social situations and even seek them out since they enjoy being around people. They often think best when they are talking. Concepts doesn't seem real unless they can talk about them; reflecting on them isn't enough.
An introvert is a person who is energized by being alone and whose energy is often drained by being around other people. They are more concerned with the inner-world of the mind. They enjoy thinking. They often avoid social situations, because being around people can drain their energy. After being around people, they need time alone to recharge.
I have a curious personality. I love to hear about people's life stories. I have a strong need to connect with people. I feel most happy when I'm around my family and good friends; when I can give a hug, a smile, a shoulder; when I can laugh and celebrate life. I often want to dance and share hearts. I feel deeply inspired and motivated when I am in a meaningful conversation. I know that socializing can be a great teacher. However, I also know that I need to listening to my own whispers; my heart and gut feelings. I love to read, write and explore my own thoughts and feelings. I have this need to be alone, to meditate and to contemplate about life. I love to sit in silence to renew my spirit, so to restore my sense of Self and inner-balance.
I am at my very best when I feel a profound connection with self, God, and the world.
