  • How to Know if You’re an Introvert

    What’s the difference between introversion and extroversion, and how can you tell whether you’re an introvert? We’ve got the answers you need below.

    Introversion vs. Extroversion

    Before exploring common signs of introversion, it may be helpful to first explain what it means to be an introvert as opposed to an extrovert. These two opposing personality types are determined based on what energizes a person—introverts feel energized after being alone, while extroverts feel energized after being around other people.

    Signs You Might Be an Introvert

    Many people assume that introverts are shy and antisocial, but that’s not always the case. Many introverts have excellent interpersonal skills but simply feel more drained after engaging in social interactions. You may be an introvert if:

    • You prefer speaking to others one-on-one or in a small group setting and tend to become quieter around large groups of people.
    • You have a small group of close friends.
    • You enjoy relaxing solo activities like meditating, reading, and writing.
    • You take time making decisions, often processing your thoughts in your head rather than out loud.
    • You prefer individual work versus group work.
