Do you often find yourself confused about whether you're an introvert, extrovert, or ambivert? Then this article will clear all your doubts and help you better understand your personality type.
To understand in which category do we lie, it is important to first know about the 3 categories:
An introvert is a person who exhibits traits of the introverted personality type, which implies they prefer to focus on their inner thoughts and ideas rather than what is going on around them. Rather than large groups or crowds, they prefer to spend time with one or two people.
An ambivert is a person who has traits of both introversion and extroversion and may switch between the two based on their mood, situation, and goals.
Extroverts have characteristics of the extroverted personality type, which means they gain their energy from being around other people. Extroverted people may appear to be exceedingly talkative and popular among their peers.
Have a look at how Introverts prefer situations and how extroverts prefer situations for a better understanding:
1. Being Around People
Introverts feel exhausted after spending time with lots of people. After a day of interacting with many people, they often need to retreat to a quiet place and have an extended amount of time all to themselves.
Extroverts, on the other hand, are more likely to feel "charged up" and inspired after spending time with others. Extroverts find such social contacts to be energising, and they even acquire energy from that.
The idea that introverts don't like others is a common misperception. While introverts dislike large groups of people, they do like having a small circle of friends with whom they are extremely close. Introverts prefer deep, long-term relationships characterised by a great deal of closeness and intimacy over having a vast social circle of people they only know on a superficial basis.
Extroverts, on the other hand, thrive on making new friends wherever they go. At a party, an extrovert will most likely be the first to approach newcomers and introduce them. Extroverts often find it easier to meet new people and create new friends because of this.

Extroverts are often highly open and willing to communicate their thoughts and feelings, whereas introverts are often viewed as closed-off and aloof. So it can be said, extroverts are often simpler to get to know than introverts.
4. Mode Of Conversation
Introverts dislike surprises in general, and phone calls are no exception. Picking up the phone and calling someone "just because" can be enjoyable and thrilling for an extrovert. But this may be a nightmare for an introvert on several levels.
Introverts prefer chatting to phoning, whereas extroverts find calling more convenient.
