  • Introvert

    Introverts enjoy their time alone to rejuvenate, recharge and refresh their inner equilibrium. Rather than looking outside of themselves to others, for stimulation and excitement, introverts look inside themselves, choosing solitary activities as a counterbalance to their social lives. To the introvert, the sound of quiet feels peaceful and soothing. Introverts enjoy the company of others, often preferring intimate gatherings to large groups. The strength of the introvert is knowing their limits, and finding a balance between solitary and social.
