There will always come a time in life when an introvert will need to be a bit like an extrovert and an extrovert will need to a bit like an introvert. This is why I'm glad that I'm both. Honestly, this may be a weird way to answer the introvert/extrovert question, but it's true. I am both an introvert and an extrovert.
You might be thinking
but it's really not that weird when you think about it...
When it comes to going outside and hanging out with people versus staying inside and working on the blog or reading, I'd rather me working on the blog or reading. Unless my friends are playing volleyball, then I'm all over that.
Part of being a team in volleyball would be getting along with a group of people and doing things that other people like to do with said people. At first, it was very difficult for me to get along with the rest of my team because I felt awkward and out of place. Naturally, I'm not an outgoing (extrovert) person until I get to know somebody. Then once I get to know somebody, I guess I can be a bit...crazy. But until I get to know them, I'm either (a) cold or (b) an introvert where I won't talk to them at all.
I'm under the impression that people need to approach me first, which shouldn't be the case. I should approach them first otherwise we'll probably never talk. I'm slowly getting better at approaching others first, but I feel like I'm doing it all wrong, and I'm only succeeding in freaking them out.
Theoretically, I'm an extrovert. Anybody who knows me would say I'm an extrovert (I've asked). But if you asked me and I didn't let other people's opinions influence mine, then I would say I'm an introvert. It just depends on my mood and who I'm around, really. But isn't it like that for everyone?
