(Thursday) 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Event Details

Introversion and extraversion may be two of the most misunderstood concepts in psychology. When we think of introversion and extraversion we think of shyness and sociability. But is this really what these concepts represent? We’ll explore some historical background on how introversion and extraversion were originally conceptualized, and what these definitions can tell us about how we navigate our social worlds. At the same time, when we think of introversion and extraversion, we think that extraversion is largely preferred in our current society. But is this really true? We’ll continue by discussing the hidden powers of introverts. Finally, when we think of introversion and extraversion, we think we are either one or the other, but not both. But do these attributes exist simultaneously and do they depend on the specific context? We’ll conclude by discussing how some people might be both introverted and extraverted, and that our experience of introversion might depend on the specific situation we are in.
