Introverts Part 1

Over the next 2 weeks at Imagine Hope, we will be discussing the differences between Introverts and Extroverts.  Do you know which category you fall in?  Most people THINK they know—but oftentimes they are incorrect! 

We plan to discuss characteristics and personality traits, how the two process thoughts differently, social interactions, and self-care for each.  We hope you check back daily and learn something about yourself or others around you!

What is an Introvert?

Introverts, by nature, tend to recharge their batteries by spending time alone.  This does not mean they are antisocial or shy, which are common myths.  Instead, many Introverts are very social and friendly, but use up their energy or “word count” being around people.  Large crowds, long days, or lots of stimulation may wipe them out.  They may feel a need to be alone in solitude to process or just be. 

We hope you come back tomorrow as Tammy discusses personality traits of Introverts.
