It's hard to be both, but it's either one or the other. I've been an introvert my whole life. I'm shy, withdrawn, likes to keep things simple, not much of a risk taker, and so on. Sometimes I wished I had a personality of an extrovert. It would be nice to be more adventurous, outgoing, social, and so on. But everybody's different. I realized that not all introverts are bad. They're quiet, but more thoughtful people. They tend to stay out of risky behaviors given the fact that they're so reserved. So each side has its benefits. So which side are you? And how to you deal with people who are the same as you or vice versa? I don't mind introverts, but typically, I'm just so much more drawn to extroverted people. And when it comes to women, it's the same thing. Recently, I've made up my mind that I prefer extroverted females. It's strange because every time I meet one, we always click. One example is my co-worker, and another is a girl I met 6 months ago. Even though she has a boyfriend, we just seem to have really good chemistry. Every time I talk to people who are like me, there is no chemistry or sparks in the air. I become bored very easily, but at the same time, I'm pretty much judging myself because I'm an introvert too. All in all, I just wish I was an introvert with more confidence. But at least I know which people I'm more comfortable with. Extroverts make me laugh; they make me happy, and they bring out the best in me more than introverts do. But hey, that's just me.
