People who are introverted are focused more on internal thoughts, feelings, and moods instead of external stimulation. They’re more quiet, reserved, and introspective.
Unlike extroverts who gain energy from social interaction, introverts have to expend energy in social situations. After attending a party or spending time in a large group of people, introverts often feel a need to "recharge" by spending a period of time alone.
If you identify with characteristics of both introversion and extroversion, then there’s a good chance that you’re one of the 70% of people who fall somewhere in the middle.
Ambiverts enjoy spending time with others and spending time alone, depending on the situation and their needs at the moment.
