According to oxford dictionary, a prefix is an element placed at the beginning of a word to adjust or qualify its meaning. The prefix “intro” is of no different. Susan Cain, a representative of the introvert society expressed her thoughts on the prefix, “intro”. She proclaims that introverts are needed in our community. Their fear of sound judgment isolates them to their own personal thinking and circle, and, thus, this is where they make the difference in reading and educating themselves on things an extravert is too bus for. Going off into their own worlds allows them to the freedom to create the uncreated. A prime example mentioned by Susan is that of Dr. Seuss who wrote alone, and was afraid of meeting the kids who read his stories. How ironic!?
Who are introverts? Intro- meaning into, within, inwards. Vert- meaning to turn or change. Someone who has a personality that is closed and inwardly.
Introverts are shy reticent people who are surprisingly the people’s people. They prefer small crowds and prefer to take people in small doses. They stay in close nit groups that they are very familiar with. Without a doubt they will hang out with friends at bars and social places but they usually are the ones to sit and listen to everyone else. Their shyness is usually derived from a negative source from youth. They are the book readers and are mainly concern about their inner world which consists of them. Ironically, they can become very lonely in a crowded room compared to being by themselves in a room.
Who are extraverts? Extra- outside of, beyond. Vert- Meaning to turn or change. Someone who has personalities that are turned outwardly.
They are very much the people’s entertainer. They love people and huge crowds. They are full of energy and many times bring the party with them. Their definition of a relax night does not include a bottle of wine or snugged under a blanket watching a movie or two. A relax night for an extravert may include friends and 6 packs, playing music, eating popcorn and mimicking something like a super bowl night. They are the life of the party and most definitely the center stage and main attraction. They are generally good company but they need stimulation in order to be happy. The usual or the “norm” for these kinds of people can become old real fast.
Generally speaking, I think the world prefer extraverts. People are more receptive and accepting to those who shed light in dark places. People are attracted to laughter and happy places and these are the prime characteristics of an extravert.
