Jung published a book in 1921 where he coined and discussed the two terms.
He wrote that introverts gained their energy from self-dialogue and protect themselves against external claims on their energy with shyness or other means. Extroverts look outward for their energy. But Jung didn't think there was such a thing as a pure introvert or extrovert.
Jung and the theoretical physicist Wolfgang Pauli, known for proposing the neutrino, were interested in dream analysis.
Their conversations went on to explore fundamental questions regarding the nature of reality through the lens of physics and psychology. This discussion led Jung to discover synchronicity, or meaningful coincidences.
He identified two people within himself, calling them No. 1 and No. 2.
No. 1 was the child of his parents and times. No. 2 was a timeless individual with no definable character. Later, his thoughts on No. 1 and No. 2 provided the basis for his ideas on ego and self.

Like in a computer hard disk, information that is retained for long periods of time is in our long-term memory and is not easy to recall reflexively, as it is outside our conscious awareness.
Our short-term memory (also called working memory or active memory) is smaller in size and recalls information in an instant.
Introverts seem to favour long-term memory over short-term memory.
Due to the way their brains are wired, introverts make great writers, able to express themselves in a more comfortable and relaxed manner, as they take their own time to build a great story or narrative.
Many introverts prefer text messages or email over phone calls, and are great at journaling and blogging.
