JOURNEY OF BECOMING AN EXTROVERT FROM AN INTROVERT

“I don’t hate people. I just feel better when they are not around.” 

First of all, we have to know the actual meaning of introvert and extrovert; so, firstly, I would talk about introverts. The real meaning of an introvert is a quiet, shy person who prefers to be alone than with other people or we can say that typically a reserved or quiet person who tends to be introspective and enjoys spending time alone.

“Either we are here to motivate others or to become an extrovert in our world.” …

Now I would put some light on the definition of an extrovert person. A person who is confident and full of life and who prefers being with other people rather than being alone and if we talk more about extroverts, they are typically gregarious and unreserved people who enjoy and seek out social interaction. Extroverts are more recognized because of their affable nature.

Now if I will talk about myself; There was a time when I was an introvert, I used to be the kind of guy who was found standing alone and not talking to anyone because of my introverted nature like I’m afraid to talk to people, I felt shy and some kind of nervousness when I talked to people. It was one fine day when I went to Bombay to my aunt’s home, and after two days my brother asked me to go with him. He said he will introduce me to his friends and we will have some fun. After meeting those amazing people, I felt confident that I could talk to people easily. Always being alone is not a solution for anything, and you can’t live your life with an introverted nature. You have to change your personality if you want to live a happy life. So yeah, after that I made so many friends now I can talk to anyone without any hesitation like in college I talk to everyone without any problem, and everyone talks to me. I would say that, just like me, everyone has something or the other, which can turn them from a loner to a person who loves to interact with everyone. It was a beautiful journey of turning an extrovert from an introvert. In The end, I would add one more point; you have to know how to balance between being an extrovert and an introvert because both have their importance in their place.

  1. This blog is interesting to read, and I can relate to it on a personal level because there was a time in my life when I was an introvert. The content of this blog provides an excellent explanation of the differences between introverts and extroverts. The part of this blog that I like the most is the very last sentence. People who are extroverts are good at communicating with others, whereas introverts are good at communicating with themselves. A great deal may be understood from only one line of text.

  2. First off, congratulations on this blog. Although we have all had our fair share of difficulties, there are only a small number of people who are able to openly discuss their own personal experiences without any reservations, but I would really like to appreciate that you have broken the social taboo. It was a real-life experience that I could connect with. The writer’s ability to think things through thoroughly while writing this blog made an already interesting article even more impressive. My interest was raised sufficiently by the blog’s writing style, which is clear and uncomplicated, so I continued to read it. It is very admirable that, despite having socially awkward tendencies, you have been able to overcome them and become more outgoing. Keep writing and expressing yourself in your blogs. I look forward to reading them.

  4. One more thing. I do get lost in my own thoughts like being in a dream anytime anywhere and when I break out of that state. Suddenly, I realize the crowed around me and all the silence disappears into background noises. That’s the time to laugh at myself for daydreaming on a crowded road in a broad daylight, walking towards the station.

    I get involved in friend’s and family member’s birthday just because they find it very exciting. My own birthday is not at all important to me. When friends ask what I plan to do on my birthday or what I did. I just make up some answer.

    Once in a while, I do go off the track and do extrovert things. But I can’t continue being so for a long. I do find extrovert mode of enjoyment totally absurd many times. Definitely its other way round too.

  5. Congratulations on writing such a blog which expresses your weakness. it not easy to share the weakness in front of everyone. the experience in the blog is so resonating to my own life. I myself is a person who is not too extrovert but neither very introvert too. but somewhat in between. but I find it difficult to make space in between people at times. I feel that I don’t connect with the people easily. But I feel so connected with the blog.

  6. A well written, easy to understand and precise blog, which has successfully been able to put forth the feelings of both an extrovert and introvert in words. For me, it has been a journey of becoming an introvert from extrovert, from most talkative and social girl to a girl who has reserved herself to very few people or close ones in her life. I have experienced both sides of my personality and as you have rightly said what is needed is to have a balance between both and feel confident and happy. It is more of a two sides of a coin, who have different story of what they feel about themselves and others.

  7. I appreciate how you described your introvert personality in this blog. The blog’s synergy is beautifully written and make’s the blog catchy. Being an introvert has no negative consequences. Never let a label to define who you are. Simply be the person you want to be. A spectrum exists. We enjoy giving ourselves labels because they give us a sense of identity. I think you should be a good person, introvert extrovert is just a words it doesn’t matter.

  8. The simplicity of this blog is it’s biggest strength. The way the it starts with defining what exactly introverts and extroverts are and how people see them. The personal story which you have shared is something which everyone can relate to and feel what the journey is exactly of becoming an extrovert. But at the same time it would have been more interesting if you had shared more details about your interaction and what was exactly that ice breaking moment where you pushed your limits and interacted with them, that insight would have made it more interesting and relatable.

Overall this is amazing blog and the story in the blog is also very relatable to me. Continue blogging and expressing yourself there. I’m excited to read them.

  10. While reading this blog I also found it interesting. Today I think I am an extrovert person but, in my life, there was a time when I was an Introvert. Being an extrovert gives you a lot of experience and knowledge when we talk to people, we try to connect with them. Make good friends and have a laugh with them, that gives us good & healthy. Being an extrovert helps in building the network.
    Being an introvert is not a thing but being an extrovert is a very good experience. This blog nicely explains that everyone can easily be an extrovert if they wanted to be.
