19 Struggles Of Having An Outgoing Personality But Actually Being Introverted

19 Struggles Of Having An Outgoing Personality But Actually Being Introverted.

A relative of mine had this article on their social media and I, thankfully, took the time to read it.  I really enjoyed Christian Marcus Lyons’ choice of topic and was glad that they took the time to cover what it was about and have been glad that people have been responsive to this as an actual possibility because it is true.

The article started by explaining how there are not just simply two kinds of people in the world: Introverted and extroverted.  There are also people who fall along the spectrum between the two who may behave one way, but act the other at times.  I happen to be one of those people who acts very extroverted at times, but who really is introverted.

For me, at least, I think  a lot of it is how I deal with my anxiety issues.  I have noticed the more anxious I get the more I tend to ‘perform’ or tend to be ‘larger than life’ and out going.   It’s when I feel ‘on’.  I truthfully find it to be exhausting.

As the article continued there was a link to another article.  The link went to another webpage, but the article was not clearly visible.  [Maybe it was just me and my Fibro Fog, but I didn’t see it.  (I did enjoy what I found on the other webpage though so that was a plus).]

The list had 19 examples, though there are surely more, of how you can be extroverted and then introverted at the same time.  Or how once you have been extroverted you then need to recover from it by being introverted.  These I felt were important because it explains how you might be able to act like the life of the party or act okay when you are out, but then need to shut yourself away for a time.  I liked what he had there.  The only thing I would have changed was at the end he didn’t bring it back together to close it.  He just ended it at the end of the list.  I would have tied it in.

Over all, I found that Lyons’ article was well worth it.  The detractions were easily overlooked when compared to the information that was supplied.  He did an excellent job and I would recommend it to others.  Enjoy!
