An introvert is a person who primarily put all his or her focus on their mind, feelings, and affairs.
On the other hand, an extrovert is a person who is outgoing and sociable.
Extroverts are usually socially confident and concerned always with outer affairs.
There are differences between extroverts and introverts which are visible.
Let’s look at the differences between the two.
Social interaction matters most to extroverts.
They usually use social interactions to drive home their ideas.
On the other hand, introverts adore their private time.
The last thing they would want is an interruption to their personal plans.
When it comes to things happening in the surroundings, extroverts mind about them the most.
They usually give them a priority than what may be in their minds.
Introverts, on the other hand, dislike any attention.
This is regardless of whether the attention is positive or negative.
Extroverts respond quickly in regards to emotions and responses.
This is enabled by the nature of their brain to think in different directions at the same time.
Introverts, on the other hand, may be seen to be unsocial.
They can be easily judged by people because of their nature.
What people may not know about them is that they usually take time to think hence slow in giving their opinions.
When it comes to friendship circles, extroverts usually have the largest.
They tend to mingle very fast enabling them to make new friends in a short span of time.
Introverts usually take time to trust anybody.
They only create friendship when necessary.
They usually bond with those people who they deem important to their lives and people they trust.
When it comes to phone etiquette, extroverts may prefer to call than texting.
They are all over making introductions and are always ready to make any necessary explanation via a voice a call.
Introverts, on the other hand, may prefer texting than calling.
This is because, in nature, while texting you have a chance to think first before texting.
This is opposed to calling where in some instances; you need to give instant answers.
Extroverts are the best when it comes to embracing change.
They are comfortable to move anyway very fast without any preparation in advance.
Introverts are known planners.
Future matters to them the most.
They are slow to embrace change especially when the future is unknown to them.
However, they may be comfortable to move on when they understand the motive behind the change.
They should also be given enough time to make necessary arrangements.
Normally when it comes to listening skills, extroverts tend to listen less while they speak more.
When it comes to introverts, the case is vice versa.
They dislike social interaction so they tend to listen more and speak less.
Bonding is what all matters when it comes to friendship.
It’s the bond which determines whether you trust your friend or not.
Extroverts tend to create friendship which has less bonding.
They are easy to make friends which results in them making too many of them.
How do you bond with hundreds of people anyway?
To the contrary, introverts are extra cautious when it comes to the process of making friends.
They usually take time to find one.
Once they succeed, they surely have the best choice based on some factors.
In this case, introverts usually establish the friendship with much bonding based on mutual understanding.
When it comes to extroverts, their moods are rekindled through social interaction.
They find solace in social interaction than anywhere else.
Introverts, as opposed to extroverts, adore the time they spend alone.
They find more energy from the achievements they make all alone.
If we can define introverts in one term, we can say they are self-sufficient.
They can handle all their problems alone without any assistance.
They seek assistance very rarely and only when there is an urgent need to do so.
Extroverts to some extent seem not to trust their efforts to achieve any goal.
Rarely will they execute any idea no matter how sure they are about it without consulting.
They must seek an opinion from other people about what they are establishing or willing to start.
Introverts are the best when it comes to keeping secrets.
Rarely will you know what is going on in their private lives.
Since introverts interact occasionally, they have fewer chances to disclose to other people what their private lives entail.
As highlighted earlier, extroverts find more comfort in social places than when they are alone.
In that case, they tend to spend more time in public than in private.
Due to their social nature, they tend to disclose more about their private affairs.
They interact with so many friends over short periods of time.
This lowers their potency to keep secrets.
If you need a real-time friend, I would advise you go for an introvert.
Rarely will you be disappointed due to a leak of your secrets.
They are highly secretive which serves as a requirement for a good friend.
Though extroverts are quick to make friends, unfortunately, they don’t make the best friends.
As highlighted earlier, they create a friendship with less bonding.
Neither will your secret be safe with them, nor will you count on them in times of trouble.
Extroverts are the last people who you can base your trust on.
You may trust them but on your own risk.
I am not discouraging you to make friends with them but take great care.
If extroverts make the majority in your friends’ circles, then be guaranteed that one day you will be in for disappointments.
To be an extrovert or an introvert is not a matter of choice.
Mind you, it is all about nature.
You have less or no influence on where you belong.
Whether an introvert or extrovert, life must go on.
All you need to know is where you belong.
Once you know your nature, you will know how to live well and effectively.
Learn your friends and establish where they belong.
Hardly will you offend them when you know where they belong and their nature.
You can also judge on who to trust or not.
