44: Introverts & Extroverts — Which one are you?

“Sometimes I think my son is a complete shut-in.”

“I just need to escape.”

“Crowds make me feel like my world is closing in.”

What do you think about when you read those lines? Familiar? Foreign? Frustrating? These lines all come from people trying to understand where they and their loved ones relate to their personality orientation: Extroverts or Introverts.

If you’ve ever taken a behavior indicator like Myers Briggs, you have probably received a score that rates you on the introversion/extroversion scale. Like all things related to personality, we exist on spectrum. And understanding who we are at our core can help us better relate to the world around us and feel more comfortable in our skins at the same time!

I’ve had this on my list of things to talk about with you all for over a year so I’m thrilled that Pete and I have finally managed to get it on the schedule. I hope our conversation inspires you to get to know yourself better, and think more critically about how you relate to your loved ones, too.
