Orientation “in” and “out” – the path to equality

During nowadays, all sorts of psychological terms have been gaining popularity, even to the point that anyone who uses the Internet will be able to make a psychological portrait of his neighbor from the top floor (and will do it better than a highly paid psychologist). These terms include two well-known concepts – introvert and extrovert. In case you don’t know anything about, the first definition means a person focused on his inner world, the second – on the outer world, his environment.

Often, referring themselves to one camp or another, people begin to justify certain of their actions. There is an affirmation or refutation of a peculiar “fashion”. Let’s make a short historical excursion. Previously extroverts were popular as the brilliant people, loving to be in the spotlights, very sociable and easy-going. And introverts have, as their complete opposition, literally, quite literally been crushed and infringe Lena weight of public opinion ( since in many introverts – the most that neither is a geezer, is not it ), but now the situation has taken a completely different turn.

Now it’s fashionable to be original, a little crazy and forever young. Focused, intelligent. In general, as introverts exist in their own worlds – sometimes obscure, smart, often detached, but always interesting to us.

Why, finally, we want to provide you once again with information about both types, even contrary to modern fashion? (And this is exactly what we are going to do). Yes, because neither introverts nor extroverts themselves are not wonderful animals, and the dialogue between these two personalities can and should be carried out successfully. Isn’t it interesting to try on the guise of a person completely opposite to you? Moreover, to understand that you are no worse and no better, you are equal.
