Introverts and extroverts are often pitted against each other by people claiming that one is better than the other. What is the difference between them?

Key Points:

  • People often stereotype introverts as being in bed curled up with a book and extroverts as out being the life of the party.
  • The difference between the two comes down to how you recharge when you’re feeling low. Introverts do it alone while extroverts do it with others.
  • It turns out the difference between introverts and extroverts lies within a deeper level of brain activity.
  • The truth is most people aren’t completely extroverted or completely introverted, we all fall somewhere on a scale in between.

Quote This:
