Introvert? Extrovert? Ambivert??

I got to thinking about introverts after reading a post by Viel on her WordPress blog…

(http://oldbluestocking.wordpress.com/2014/09/11/so-you-think-you-know-a-thing-about-introverts/)… this week.

 

If you’ve pondered introverts and extroverts and the different ways individuals and groups react to each, you’d really enjoy Viel’s post.

 

Is there such a thing as an ‘ambivert’? Can introversion and extroversion be situational?

 

A good friend recommended that I look into Susan Cain’s book, Quiet, which talks about how introverts function—and the power they world—in a world that seems to value the opposite. I went to the library and got a copy.

 

I carried it to lunch with another friend, who said, “Interesting. But why are YOU reading it?”

 

It makes me examine where I fall on the “—version” spectrum. Fascinating pondering—how about you??? Where do you land?

Susan Cain’s TED talk on the topic can be accessed via the link below.
