Which Class Are You?
By This, You Shall Know
I want to share this analysis of Introvert versus Extroverts, as analyzed by a popular psychologist. I believe that most of us still wonder which personality category we are based on some mixed-up traits we all exhibit.
So let us briefly refresh our mind with this analysis provided by Marti Olsen Laney, Psy.D.
We know that an Extrovert personality tends to be talkative, while an Introvert is quiet, an Extrovert is known to be social,
While an Introvert is reserved,
An Extrovert is outgoing
while an Introvert is shy,
Extroverts are lively,
While Introverts are silent
There are still more traits, But now let us fast forward to certain ways we communicate, by paying attention to the following tendencies between the Extroverts versus Introverts communication, it is not a comprehensive list though.
The question is, Are you an Introvert Or Extrovert? Ok, let's find out
- Introverts keep energy, enthusiasm, and excitement to themselves and think only with those they know very well. Introverts hesitate before sharing personal information with others.
- Need time to think before responding. Need time to reflect before reacting to outside events.
- Prefer communicating one to -one.
- Need to be drawn out or invited to speak, and may prefer written to verbal communication.
- May occasionally think they told you something they didn’t. they are always going over things in their head). Contrasted with
The Extrovert’s communication pattern
- Extroverts tend to share their energy, excitement, and enthusiasm with almost anyone in the vicinity.
- Responds quickly to questions and outward events.
- Share personal information easily
- Communicate one to one or in groups with equal ease and enjoyment.
- Think out loud, interacting with others, and, in the process, reach their conclusions. In addition, they often don’t give others a chance to speak and don’t always attach tremendous meaning to what they say.
- Prefer face-to-face, oral communication over written communication.
This is it. I hope by now, that you must have picked one-two clue that tells you which personality class you belong to.
