Battle of personality (Introvert VS Extrovert)

Introvert VS Extrovert
Lagos, Nigeria
November 18, 2020 6:35pm CST
Some people are outspoken, some are just very reserved. These traits also determine who are friends are and our lifetime interactions with people. An extrovert is an outgoing and outspoken person who enjoys being around and talking to people while an introvert is a person who remains isolated, or enjoys the company of few closed ones. Personally, I think I can exhibit both at different times based on my mood. Nonetheless, I prefer not to rate Extroverts above Introverts. Both have their uniqueness, merits and demerits. Would you rather prefer a different personality? I think I love just being me.

I can't lie I like my alone time and if I have people around the fewer the better for me. I can go out and I am sitting in one spot until it's time to leave. If I am around my few closest people I am the life of the party. everyone laughs for hours around me. But here in my home, I am not like that because I am always worried about someone messing up something that I can't be very social.

It's cool to be you. everybody has a social side. Truth is it depends on the side you turn to.

You should be happy just being you. Don't try to be anyone else. I think, all people are capable of exhibiting traits from both personality types, depending on mood and social situation. I actually come off as an introvert, but can be quite extroverted once I get going.

@kaylachan most people have a dominant personality trait which often defines where they belong

@BlekHaviva While that's true, it does seem unfair if you think about it.

Welcome to myLot! I think I'm basically an introvert, but I do have my moments enjoying the spot light.

I'm generally introvert but there are times that I join with the company.

I've never worked out whether I'm am introvert or an extrovert. I think it's more like a spectrum or continuum where people may lean towards one more than another but could be anywhere in between. For me, it can depend on who I'm with. I'm not great at being sociable because I don't know how to do that. Sometimes I prefer my own company. Sometimes I'll enjoy being with others but it's tiring and I'm glad to get home. I think whatever my personality is, it's OK. I do wish I could be more consistent, though, understanding and executing the way I want to be with people rather than seeming shy in some situations and looking like I'm seeking attention in others (neither of which is ever my intention).

It is lovely that we are not always the same or life would be boring. My German friend visited us and my sister hid in the broom cupboard. She is quite shy and she is better than she was than she was in the past. Her second son is an elective mute. Her second daughter is very quiet and shy. I think being midway between being an extrovert and an introvert is perfect.

Welcome to myLot. It is a good community. I am sorry about the status of your country. You will find a really great bunch of people here. I am more extrovert online than in real life, myself.

There is no reason for them to be at odds with each other. We just need to understand them from where you are and not judge or discriminate them since its their personality and we could not do about it. Just respect them for who they are.
