Usually, we tend to think of ourselves as introverts or extroverts, but in reality, it may not be as simple as that.

There is a third category that falls in between the two, and it’s called being an “ambivert.” The term ambivert refers to a person whose personality has a balance of introvert and extrovert features.

Whether you are an introvert, extrovert, or somewhere in between, these traits are just one aspect of your personality.

They do not completely define who you are, so there’s no need to get caught up in labels! So, with that being said, let’s explore the differences between introverts, extroverts, and ambiverts.

Let’s get one thing straight—introversion is not synonymous with shyness or antisocial behavior. Although they may be commonly associated with each other, that does not mean all introverts embody those characteristics.

Introverts can be highly sociable, just as some extroverts can be anxious in social situations. The differences come in depending on how much socializing you can handle before you need to recharge.

An introvert might need breaks from social life to decompress. After they’ve had some time to recover, they can be the life of the party.

Introverts may also enjoy their own company over the presence of others. On the other hand, extroverts feel invigorated by a lot of social activity. They may dislike being alone.

When it comes to the spectrum of introversion and extroversion, most people can actually find themselves somewhere in between the two. They are the ambiverts!
