1. Where is your energy naturally directed?

03 Oct

Extraverts’ energy is directed primarily outward, towards people and things outside of themselves. Introverts’ energy is primarily directed inward, towards their own thoughts, perceptions, and reactions. Therefore, Extraverts tend to be more naturally active, expressive, social, and interested in many things, whereas Introverts tend to be more reserved, private, cautious, and interested in fewer interactions, but with greater depth and focus.

Extraverts often:
*Have high energy
*Talk more than listen
*Think out loud
*Act, then think
*Like to be around people a lot
*Prefer a public role
*Can sometimes be easily distracted
*Prefer to do lots of things at once
*Are outgoing & enthusiastic

Introverts often:

*Have quiet energy
*Listen more than talk
*Think quietly inside their heads
*Think, then act
*Feel comfortable being alone
*Prefer to work “behind-the-scenes”
*Have good powers of concentration
*Prefer to focus on one thing at a time
*Are self-contained and reserved
