(Discuss) Introvert or Extrovert?

Today’s topic of discussion is all about how you connect with people. Start with whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, and expand from there.

Do you like group activities? Parties? One-on-one situations?

Would you meet a friend for a coffee, or go for a walk by the river? Or perhaps neither sound appealing.


Here’s a chance to get to know me and your fellow readers. Here’s a chance for us to get to know you.

Are you a “people person”, or do you prefer a quiet room to yourself?

  1. Until relatively recently, I believed that introvert = shy, while extrovert = outgoing. Then mum told me that these terms actually refer to how are person “recharges”. A person can love being surrounded others and can be a great stroyteller, etc, but still get their refreshment and rejuvenation by being alone. That makes me an introvert who likes being in one-on-one settings or in a small group. I feel afraid to open up when a certain number of people are involved. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed at parties or gatherings with many people, but if I can sit down and get engrossed in a conversation with one or two other people, I can easily enjoy myself. I quite enjoy meeting with friends for coffee and walking with them in town or by the river, particularly with one person.

  2. This is an interesting topic for me. I am definitely an introvert. I struggle with making myself be friendly to strangers when I feel uncomfortable. I don’t enjoy performing on stage, though I’ve done it nearly a dozen times. Speeches, plays, and being the center of attention are just not my things. =)

    But on the internet, I feel like a completely different person. I express myself totally different. I LOVE talking to shy people who may not have as many friends. I enjoy encouraging, being a leader, and loving on people. Even on video chats, I don’t struggle with shyness at all. I don’t know exactly why that is though. =) *shrugs*

    But in the way you said, I definitely “charge up” by myself or with a few good friends. When there is noise and busyness around me, it’s harder to focus on Jesus. I also find that it causes me to be more stressed. Thus, the calmness of home and friends is definitely my thing. 😉

    1. That’s a really good point, Hosanna. I wonder how many people have – in a sense – one personality for flesh and blood interactions, and another that applies online. I do. I’m mean, not *everything* changes. For example, I would still feel shy to interact with people via video chat whom I hadn’t met in person. But a lot does change.

      1. That’s very true…it’s an intriguing thought, isn’t it? I actually have a lot of friends who I’ve only “met” online. I can’t help but wonder how different they are in real life? =) Hmm…
