12 Unusual Things Only An Introverted Extrovert Can Relate To


Are you an extrovert or an introvert? Or perhaps both?

Honestly, I wasn’t even aware that someone can possess traits belonging to both personality types until I learned that I am an introverted extrovert myself.

I am a gregarious, outgoing sort of person. I enjoy socializing with others and making new friendships. Yet, I also enjoy spending time all on my own, perfectly tucked in and isolated in the silence of my room.

Hah, I know, all of this is too confusing for you, but trust me – it’s confusing for me as well.

So, let’s get down to business. Here are 12 unusual things that just my fellow introverted extrovert will understand:

1. You like spending time with your friends, but then again, there is nothing you enjoy more than just watching movies on Netflix or reading a book on your couch.

2. You like talking to people face-to-face, but you despise talking to someone on the phone or via webcam.

3. You love going to birthday parties and concerts and watching movies in the cinema with your friends, but having to attend too many social events makes you feel overwhelmed and stressed.

4. You like being in other people’s company, but you don’t like being in other people’s company at the same time. When you’re around one person, you feel very comfortable and relaxed, whereas being around more than one person at the same time drains your energy.

5. Because you’re friendly and talkative, you appear as if you are an open book,  but, in fact, you don’t like sharing your secrets with anyone.

6. Everyone thinks that you are tough, but just your close friends know how fragile and closed off you are.

7. You have no problem talking with someone for hours, but you truly hate small talk and gossip and you try to avoid these at all costs.

8. You value the time you spend with your friends and family, but there is nothing that you value more than spending time on your own.

9. You love silence a lot, and you love even more those people who don’t ask you right away, “Oh, is everything okay with you” the same moment you choose to be silent.

10. After hanging out with your friends in a crowded, loud place, you always feel a strong need to spend some time on your own so as to recharge your batteries.

11. Generally, you’re on good terms with everyone, yet when you really like someone, you make sure you never lose them.

12. Spontaneity? What’s that? Spontaneity is only an abstract term for you. You can’t prepare yourself for how friendly and open or distant you will need to be unless you make all the plans in advance.
