Is Extroversion better?
We are (hopefully) aware today between the sexes that it has nothing to do with "better" or "worse" when a person is female or male. That's not the case with the "other little difference" between intros and extros.
Many consider the extroversion for the better expression. This is also related to the fact that intros had a bad press for a long time - the property was introverted with timid, jammed and gray-headed in a drawer stowed. It should be said in advance: That's not true. Not really.
The mixture makes it
Reality is more complicated - and more exciting. Each person has both intro- and extrovert properties. Whether we are "intro" or "extro", inward or outward, is thus not an Either-Or decision.
Rather, every human being is located anywhere on a continuous Intro-Extro scale. And we are all looking for intro-extro blends. Personalities with a very balanced mix of intro and extro features are ambi- or centroverted.
Our well-being zone
Our location in an area of the intro-extro scale is innate, but it is only during the growing up in contact with other people stable: Because the brain is not yet "finished" with the birth.
Everyone finds a grown-up on the scale a kind of comfort zone in which he feels comfortable. Most people are in a moderate middle range, but with a perceptible tendency towards the intro or extro side.
The father of the types
In his work "Psychological Types", Carl Gustav Jung first defined introversion and extroversion as features that characterize a personality. For Jung, both characteristics with their peculiarities were important and valuable.
In his view, intros and extros complement each other and can help each other broaden their perspectives and take new perspectives.
Are you intro or extrovert?
Important: Wherever your result is located - every successful community needs intros and extros.
Because the human species benefits from opposites that complement each other. It needs men and women, thinkers and feelers, sedentaries and nomads, extros and intros for their survival and development.
How to complement Intros and Extros optimally
Extros offer intros something they have less: vigorous impulses, engaging action, flexibility, motivation.
Conversely, Intros give their extroverted contemporaries something that is only weak in them: for example, wise intercourse, deep relationships, careful planning and an open ear.
