Extrovert v. Introvert

When we started talking about people being extroverts and introverts in class, it made me wonder, can people be either in different situations? Or is a person always an extrovert (or introvert)? The more I thought about it, the more I thought it possible to be either depending on the situation. Then I thought about myself. I've noticed that when I'm around kids my own age (that I don't know), I'm more of an introvert, but when I'm around older people, even if I don't know them, I'm more of an extrovert. I'm more outgoing, talkative, and actually take the time to talk to them and get to know them, as with kids my own age, I don't make an effort at all. I'm not really sure why I do this, but I have pretty much my entire life, and probably will continue to do so.


  1. This is a good observation of the personality comparison. I also see myself as a situational extrovert and introvert.

  2. You probably feel judged more around your peers, afraid they will make fun of you. You also probably enjoy the conversations with older people more. maybe that's a personality trait you should persue; working with elders.
