If You’re an Extrovert…
As an extrovert, you enjoy a lot of external stimulation. You love hanging with friends, meeting new people, or engaging in external things that stimulate your mind. When you’re isolated for too long at home, you’ll soon begin saying to yourself, “I’ve got to get out of this house!” In fact, you may say that after only one day alone at home!
You probably have a wide circle of friends, and you love getting together for a meal, hanging out, or just striking up a conversation with a random person. Because extroverts tend to enjoy talking and engaging in social situations, they often get labeled as “social butterflies.” You may have even been called a “people person” or “outgoing.” In fact, introverts sometimes get a bad rap due to extroverted people, as people often quip, “Why does that introvert keep to themselves so much? I wish they were more talkative and outgoing.”
You probably dislike writing or reading too much, and you’d much prefer to pick up the phone and make a call as opposed to writing an email. Some extroverts loath writing, although not all feel this way. Some extroverts make great writers, but most prefer face-to-face communication if given the choice. Some extroverts tend to have difficulty expressing their ideas in written form, as their minds are wired to work while engaging.
Being an extrovert doesn’t mean that you dislike alone time, it’s just that it tends to suck the life out of you after a while. You get energized and feel most comfortable around other people, especially many friends or family members.
You think better while talking, as opposed to writing or thinking alone. In fact, some of your best solutions or ideas have probably come to you while talking to others. You also tend to blurt out the answer if asked a question. In contrast, introverts hate being put on the spot, and prefer to mull over a question before replying.
If You’re an Introvert…
As an introvert, you prefer solitude as opposed to long periods of interaction. Interacting with people tends to drain you, and you will need periods of solitude to “recharge your batteries.” Introverts tend to be introspective personality types, and as a result, you have little need for a large amount of social interaction. You probably have few friends, but you will likely form deep bonds with those whom you do form a friendship.
You’re a very private person as well. You’re the type of person who’d rather read a book, take a walk, or enjoy some “alone time.” You probably hate small talk with strangers (because you never know what to say, and feel it is pointless anyway), and if someone actually talked you into going to a party or social get-together (which is an incredible feat in itself), then you’d probably be the person sitting by yourself or having a one-on-one conversation about something that fascinates you.
Being an introvert doesn’t mean you can’t be social, or that you are always awkward (or a shy loner). It just means that you tend to naturally prefer solitude or “one-on-one” socializing in comparison to frequent socializing. Introverts can be very funny and outgoing when they want, but then, they tend to draw back and have periods of time where they withdraw to analyze life, read books, or have more intimate time with friends or family.
Introverts stand in stark contrast to extroverts (the contrasting trait), who tend to enjoy frequent social interaction, and become restless when they spend too much time alone. As an introverted nurse, you’ll definitely feel your introversion at play. You’ll generally want to avoid specialties that require a large amount of social interaction, and instead, you’ll prefer to have more independence and solitude to perform your work.
