Personality forms the basis of the whole of psychology. People from all over the world have long been interested in the question of what our nature is and how we differ from each other. Types of personality help us for to learn something about another person and somehow predict his actions and behavior in a few minutes. Psychology considers two types of identity, fundamentally different from each other. These are extroverts and introverts. These concepts were introduced by such well-known psychologists as Carl Gustav Jung and Hans Jürgen Eysenck.
An extrovert is a type of person who is oriented to external conditions, to people around him, to relationships with them, in general, all his behavior is oriented toward outside manifestation. An introvert is a complete opposite. This type of people is more focused on themselves and on their inner world. The introvert lives more in the inner world, ignoring the outer world. He is immersed in himself, not talkative, but thoughtful and very attentive.
Such an individual can delve into many things that the extrovert perceives superficially. The following essay answers a question about my type of personality.
I’m a pathological introvert. First, let’s think about what we already have discovered about introverts? Basically, we can read about them from books and articles on psychology, whose authors sometimes succinctly and formally describe this type of personality. In many books and articles that I have read, with rare exceptions, introverts are described superficially. The information they contain about these people is not enough to understand people of this type, and what are their features and advantages compared to extroverts. Perhaps this is due to the fact that introverts are always in the minority. According to my personal experience, very few people really try to understand people who are like me. It is very difficult to understand a person who is closed from you, who lives his inner world and is not going to let it all in a row.
As for my example personal, I prefer solitude. I can say that I feel comfortable only in the circle of the closest friends or relatives. It is more pleasant to me to communicate with books on science fiction than with other people. Although sometimes I really need a companion to share my thoughts and inner experiences with him, but preferably one who will listen to me attentively. I am inclined to creativity, inner experiences, as well as to reflections and dreams.
As a rule, the introvert is more of a passive person, but in many cases, this is only visible passivity. The fact is that introverts tend to think deeply, their activity is more expressed in mental research, than in continuous action and pathos behavior. From the outside, it always seems as a passivity and lack of involvement. This formulation perfectly describes me.
I do not want to attract too much attention. I always try to avoid publicity and go on stage, I can always be noticed somewhere on the side, at the back of the desk, in the corner. This, in turn, allows me to be secretive and observant, to make a detailed analysis of any situation, to draw more or less objective conclusions. Introverts in most cases, are much smarter than people around them think, but they do not always show their attainments. It is enough for me to do the necessary conclusions only for myself for solving my current problems and tasks.
Due to this reason, I do not like to show off in public. I do not care what people think of me. I do not have an ambiguous answer if it’s good or bad, but considering that I’m already enough year old, it’s unlikely I’ll ever be able to change myself. Moreover, I do not need it.
