Do you mix with others easily? Are you a loner? Human beings can be categorized as extrovert or introvert. There appears not to be a continuum to give variety to the species. You are either one or the other.
Don't get me wrong here. Introverts can rise to the occasion and mix in a group. Oddly, many introverts become entertainers to bring themselves out and beat their fears. Clearly though, extroverts love other people and get lonely quickly, whereas introverts thrive doing things on their own.
After a noisy party where alcohol has temporarily changed introverts into extroverts. The basically quieter type starts worrying about what he/she said at the bash. The mixers just get on with life and don't fear anything.
Wait on. Research has shown the people do fit on a continuum. We cannot all be divided into either mixer or loner, not totally. To make it simpler scientists have coined the phrase "ambiverts" for those in the middle. This is very simplistic and smacks of keeping an established system alive. No, we all different. We are human aren't we?
