Everyone knows that extroverts and introverts see the world somewhat differently. We at Bright Side thought it would be interesting to illustrate these differences using specific examples. The results really make you think just how different we can be.
To extroverts and introverts, parties are completely different events.
A conversation with a stranger can be a challenge to an introvert, whereas an extrovert takes up any opportunity to socialize.
This is true of conversations both face-to-face and over the telephone.
Meeting a chatty person in the elevator is a great start to the day for an extrovert. But an introvert dreams of riding it alone.
A large office space is like heaven to an extrovert, but it's like being in a zoo for an introvert.
Both have their own strengths at work.
They understand leadership differently.
Home for an introvert is the best place on Earth. If you're an extrovert, it's just a place to catch your breath.
After an entire day of socializing, an extrovert is still full of energy. An introvert doesn't feel the same.
Which is why they see the subway trip home somewhat differently.
The same is true of their ideal evening after a hard day.
On the other hand, both look forward to relaxing at the weekend...but in their own way!
