Introvert and extrovert are two commonly used words to describe a person’s personality and also commonly misused and misunderstood.
noun (psychology) a person who tends to shrink from social contacts and to become preoccupied with their own thoughts.
Introvert comes from Latin intro-, “inward,” and vertere, “turning.” It describes a person who tends to turn inward mentally.
(psychology) a person concerned more with practical realities than with inner thoughts and feelings
a psychological term, it was borrowed from German extravertiert, from the prefix extra- “outside, beyond” plus Latin vertere” to turn.”
These two personality types are opposites — introverts focus inward, into their own thoughts, and extroverts focus outward, into the world.
An introvert is less likely to socialize and loves time alone. They are known to avoid large groups and easily get drained of energy among a big crowd.
An extrovert is widely believed to be an outgoing and fun-loving person. While that may ring true, it is not at all the true definition. An extrovert is an individual who is easily energized amongst large crowds.
If We Assume that we all are batteries, then in such a scenario we can see that introverts recharge alone, but extroverts get energy from other people.
If you get them mixed up, remember that introverts turn inward and extroverts like external action.
