Day 292 (Two-Hundred & Ninety-Two) of 365 days

Interaction with people helps us know about them and we can comprehend their behaviour in different situations and circumstances without getting surprised by their actions. A candid conversation helps express one’s thoughts but it can be fatal sometimes. I believe that there has been a balance between being too extroverted and being too introverted. It is a common belief that introverted people are shy, they cannot speak in the presence of others. But the truth is that introverts are not shy, they prefer to be alone by choice.

They feel energized and more productive when they are alone rather than surrounded by people. We can say that energy is drained in the presence of others. While extroverts are outgoing people and feel energized in the presence of others. They think best when they are speaking. I am a person who is neither too introverted and nor too extroverted. I think I am more productive, thoughtful and can take better decisions when I am alone. At the same time, I like hanging out with people and talking to them, but there is a limit to it.

Do you like to spend a Friday night in a crowded place meeting a lot of new people or do you prefer to curl up in bed while having a cup of tea and reading a book? Do you prefer to hang out with a large number of friends or just with one or two close friends? Your answers may be one or the other or perhaps you would favour something in between. We all stand somewhere on the spectrum between extroverts and introverts. And some situations would make us feel more one way or the other. Nevertheless, it is difficult to say that someone is an introvert or an extrovert because even though a person may have characteristics of an introvert, that person may also have characteristics of an extrovert.

Awareness and information are key to creating meaningful change and fueling powerful decisions -- this goes for relationships of all types. When we feel that we better understand where someone else is coming from or how they experience the world, it can be easier to empathize, relate and communicate effectively. And this advice doesn't just apply to your friends, romantic partners, or family members. Understanding if someone has a more introverted or extroverted personality can be helpful for professional relationships too.

While everyone is different, working on understanding the differences between introverted and extroverted tendencies can be a helpful tool when it comes to better understanding yourself and others around you. I believe that the more information we can know about ourselves, what makes us tick and how we can take care of ourselves is always going to improve quality of life and overall happiness
