You are socially oriented. You have a strong self-motivation to get to know people in all walks of life and to nurture those relationships.
You have a natural enthusiasm for all types of ideas and projects - your own and other people's.
People are likely to describe you as gregarious, persuasive and optimistic.
But what about my cottage by the sea? What about the me who looks for silence, solitude and simplicity and who sometimes likes to be alone? What about my Meyers-Briggs score that says that I am right in the middle on the extrovert/introvert continuum?
According to the DISC personality test, I also like freedom, independence and new experiences, and so it is through these descriptors that I begin to understand how this introvert/extrovert split works for me. I like the independence and freedom of the cottage, where I can hang an introvert; but then I come home to a more social life, during which time I have more opportunities to exercise the extrovert in me.
There is much to sort out here. Just when I think I understand myself, new insights, theories, even personality tests, come along. Everyone who knows me says that I am more extroverted than introverted, that I am definitely a social being. Well, of course, when they are around, that’s how I act, that’s what they observe. Obviously people never see me during the many solitary times that I carve into my daily routine.
I’m probably more of an extrovert than I thought. Maybe the truth is that, as the tests say, I am both introvert and extrovert, and that thankfully I seem to nurture and live in both arenas. Come to think of it this blog fit me perfectly.
