I Love Silence (Are you an Introvert or Extrovert?)

Meet Bira, the most extroverted cat I know… I’m staying with my partner, her family and three very unique cats…

I’m an introvert, I NEED silence

Silence is the magic word that makes me a better person

It’s through the calm that I am able to go about in everyday life without throwing eggs at passers-by.

…Contrary to the imagery created

I’m actually an okay person

…I only have a few eggs in my bag per day…

Without the poetry in the word silence, I can’t function.

I can’t talk to people constantly and fill my time with activities that are socially stimulating because my brain frazzles out.

It’s the classic case of: “It’s not you it’s me.”

It’s actually quite funny because I find that I gravitate to extroverted personalities

It’s through being an introvert myself and having knowledge of my extrovert friends I can give an idea to you of what you may be

If your are the kind of person who:

  • Gains energy from being with people
  • Likes to be the centre of attention for long amounts of time (this is in no way a bad thing 🙂 )
  • Prefers to spend time with people as oppsosed to being alone
  • Have a large group of friends
  • Are very out-going (people always know you’ll be at the party)
  • Have no problem being the leader in a presentation

You are most likely an:

*Drumrolllllllll……….

EXTROVERT

To contrast, if you are:

  • Often seeking alone time
  • Are often seen as a listening type
  • Lose energy from big social gatherings (sometimes even only small groups)
  • Have to mentally prepare for any kind of social event
  • Picks and chooses when to be social
  • Your friends get a little shocked when you say you’re going to a party

You are most likely an:

INTROVERT

It’s not bad to be either DON’T WORRY this isn’t some sort of medical analysis that you look up in the middle of the night cause you’re worried about a cold being a throat infection that will last 20 years…

However, this is in some way helpful because from an honest point of view

I honestly felt horrible about being an introvert.

I always turned down my friends events,

I have very few friends because I don’t socialise

and I quite often fall straight asleep after any big social occasion because I put so much time into the people I talk to

I love to listen

and I love to help

So I naturally give a lot of energy to the people I care about

Extroversion and Introversion are just an addition to your personality.

The extroverts I’ve met are some of the kindest people I know, they bring me out of my shell and make me laugh in ways I sometimes wish I didn’t …cause I get told to be quiet…

Just as the introverts I know are incredibly kind too and always can give a different perspective to a situation because they often observe from the sidelines

Now I know you shouldn’t label everything you do in life

but its quite fun to know

Are you an introvert or extrovert?

New post tomorrow 🙂
