It came up again yesterday in a discussion, and it also is a recurring theme when our whole family is together over the holiday season.
There are three of the four of us in our family who without hesitation will get up in front of large group of people and perform, but in each case, we can be extremely intimidated in a group of three or four. I’ve been in a room where about 2,000 people listened to my piano playing, but invite me into your living room, point to the piano and say, “Play something;” and I will totally freeze.
I don’t remember us hearing as much about the introvert/extrovert distinction as we have in the last year or so. Does it define more people, or are we just more sensitive to it?
So I found this chart at Psychological Facts rather interesting. I also learned on the introverted side of things, that I haven’t been sensitive to people around me in terms of items #4, 5 and 6.
How do you deal with the introvert/extrovert dichotomy in your family, church, or workplace?
