“People” People | 4 Facts About What It Means To Be An Extrovert

“You’re so outgoing!” “You’re such a ‘people’ person!” “You’re the life of the party!”

If you’ve ever heard these things, you might be an extrovert. Being an extrovert is more than just being outgoing. Being extroverted has a lot to do with where you get your energy, and how you process things. Here are a few extrovert facts.

  1. Extroverts get their energy from being around others.  For an extrovert, nothing is more invigorating than being around other people. After a long day, they recharge by going out or having dinner with a friend, or just hanging out with someone else.
  1. They process things out loud.  Extroverts primary mode of interaction is with the external world. When they work through things, they need to talk through them, write them down, vent.
  1. Extroverts are stimulated by their environment. Extroverts thrive on constant stimulation and borderline chaos. It energizes them. Being busy and on the go is not usually overwhelming for the extrovert; it can actually help focus them.
  1. Wide range.  Extroverts typically deal in the wide range of things. They may know a little about a lot of different things. They may be friends with a lot of different people. This keeps them on the move, and keeps them from getting bored.
