Introverts, Extroverts and Ambiverts

We all have met people who are extremely shy and people who are extremely outgoing and confident. We may also have met people who are in between. They have good social skills but they are moderately reserved too. Well, we may already know that we already have classifications for people based on their social behavior. There are three types of people under this classification: Introverts, Extroverts and Ambiverts.

Introverts are people who are extremely reserved. They don't like company of people. They like spending time alone and they never want to bother people too much. They enjoy their own company. However, this behavior must not be associated with the fact that they dislike human beings altogether. No, they like human contact just moderately and when they need it. This is a rather selfish outlook towards life and social environment but this is just how they are. This behavior is built into their DNA and it should not be vilified. Many times I have seen people being extremely put off or downright being paranoid with people who don't speak much. Either they think that the person is extremely conceited that they don't want to talk to others or they think that the person is filled with feelings of malice. And hence, people avoid introverted people. This in turn makes them more cut off from society and be somewhat of an outcast. Again, their behavior should not be vilified. Many times they may not reply to your conversation and that is alright. Its their genetic structure. That's how they live their life. If they don't respond to you it doesn't mean that they are conceited. It means that they are afraid to speak out. In conclusion, when approaching an introverted person, try to make them comfortable being near you. It is like going close to an animal. If you go too fast, the animal will run away. This is true with rodents mostly. I am absolutely not comparing introverts to animals though. They are humans just like all of us. They are just quiet.

Next comes extroverts. Extroverts, the alpha humans of society. They love company. They relish in groups and crowds and social events. They love talking to people and they love going out. These are the kind of people who are also more confident and can communicate more effectively. There is not much to say about extroverts. There is no caution in approaching them. They love human company and they will talk to you about anything. However, you must beware of extroverts who always want to talk about negative things or they will downright try to make you feel bad for something you did. Those are just extroverted a**holes. You must avoid them at all costs. Life is short, you don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

Finally we look at ambiverts. These people are somewhat introverted and somewhat extroverted. They assess the situation and decide if they want to keep to themselves or they want to speak up. You can try and build the qualities of ambiverts into yourself. It just takes a lot of time and self control. These people are the best kind of people because they can assess how to handle different types of situations. They will show finesse instead of raw feelings when dealing with social situations.  If you are trying to mold your personality then try molding it into that of an ambivert.

These are three classifications but everybody is different. That's what makes this world a fun place. Image by rawpixel from Pixabay 

There is one last classification which I would like to discuss here. That is the omnivert. If a situation requires being quiet the omnivert will speak up. If a situation requires speaking up the omnivert will keep quiet. Omniversion is rare and you must be careful if you start to develop it. Generally it is not a good idea to do the opposite of what a social situation demands. We can see the three types of personalities introverts, extroverts and ambiverts in a positive light but omniversion almost always yields negative results and makes the life of the omnivert hard. If you think you are slipping into omniversion try consulting a therapist. The therapist may put you on a treatment plan or may not if your omniversion is not that strong.
