I Am An Ambivert

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 107 People

    I love to spend time to myself time to time,

    and I usually go outside for a nice walk. However, my neighborhood is REALLY close together and there are houses EVERYWHERE. It's SOOOOOOOO hard to avoid people when I'm walking. Sometimes, when I see someone at a distance that looks about the same age as me (lol, I have bad...

    Always Thought There Must Be a 3rd Choice

    I was surfing Wikipedia, as is my wont, and came across this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extroversion I've always been described as an Extrovert, and that's what comes out on the Jung personality test and just about every one I've ever taken. I've never disagreed with it...

    I am a shy Ambivert. I enjoy the company of

    others, as long as I don't have to talk. I sometimes want to hang around with others and sometimes I want to be alone. I get energy from others and myself.

    I have been naturally drawn to extroverts all

    of my life. Standing with one, or, a crowd of extroverts, I am magically transformed into one of them. But, if the crowd is too large, I can't make that change. The rest of the time, I am, comfortably, an introvert.

    I usually try to avoid meaningless

    conversations. I am very shy to topics that don't interest me. I just smile. But it's hard for me to stop talking about the things that I'm interested in. I like saving my energy for them.

    I was wondering..what does it take to be an

    extrovert? Then again, why label? Introvert, extrovert, ambivert are all labels too. No one's born being an introvert or extrovert, its the upbringing and conditioning that makes one introverted or extroverted. So why choose? Well, being an ambivert would be like a balance...

    Introducing Extroverts, Introverts and Ambiverts

    This story was prompted by a recent post by one of my very best friends here on ep.  He wrote a story; and for the first time I actually bristled a bit.  All of his writing, ramblings and blogs I have great respect for.  With that said, I found my ego and emotions...

    I've found I'm usually only extroverted

    when around people that regularly practice some form of meditation and a fascination with consciousnes, as well as a similar level of introversion.

    Sociable Hermit

    I am very sociable, good at public speaking and at ease with people WHEN I feel like being around people other than my family. Which is almost never!
