Have you often found yourself asking, “Am I an introvert, an extrovert, or an ambivert?”rnAn introvert is a person who can be social and outgoing when they need to or in certain situations but would prefer to spend their time alone or in small groups. An extrovert is a person who feeds off of attention and enjoys being in social situations instead of being alone. There is also another category people can fall into called ambiverts, which describes a more ambidextrous person when it comes to how they react to other people. Ambiverts can be more introverted at times and extroverted if they are in the right setting or around the right people. While introverts and extroverts tend to be on more of a spectrum depending on the person, the ambivert would fall right in the middle with the ability to bounce back and forth between the two.
