“Even Carl Jung, the psychologist who first popularized these terms, said that there’s no such thing as a pure introvert or a pure extrovert. He said that such a man would be in a lunatic asylum if he existed at all. And some people fall smack in the middle of the introvert/extrovert spectrum, and we call these people ambiverts. And I often think that they have the best of all worlds. But many of us do recognize ourselves as one type or the other.” ~ Susan Cain
Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Do you think an introvert is also capable of great love and achievements as an extrovert is, or are they limited by not being able to express themselves as freely and openly as an extrovert?
Why Being an Introvert is Wonderful
I love the way Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking explains why being an introvert is something you should totally embrace and be proud of, and why the world needs the gifts of both introverts and extroverts in order to see and appreciate every little thing each and every one of us has to offer.
