Sociability. Introvert - Extrovert

Basic personality types according to the theories of the 20th-century Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung. An introvert is a person whose interest is generally directed inward toward his own feelings and thoughts, in contrast to an extrovert, whose attention is directed toward other people and the outside world. This typology is now regarded as overly simplistic because almost no one can be accurately described as wholly introvert or extrovert. Most persons fall somewhere between Jung's two types -- i.e., they are ambiverts, in whom introversive and extroversive tendencies exist in a rough balance and are manifested at different times in response to different situations.


[ 0-10]   Deep introvert. Excessive daydreaming and careful consideration before reaching decisions are also typical aspects of an introverted personality.

[11-25]   Introvert is withdrawn in terms of behavior, often fails to make contact with others. Men are often wordy, pedantic, women are retiring and timid.

[26-40]   A person is more self-contained and unsociable rather than open to discovery. Strict control of feelings, avoidance of conflict-like situations.

[40-60]   This person is equally both self-contained and willing to be discovered. Good social adaptation, and breadth of concerns. Some shyness is possible.

[61-75]   Good communication skills, sometimes emotional and free in behavior. Talkative and sociable. They easily make contact with strangers.

[76-90]   Extrovert. Easily makes new contacts. They are also impulsive. In company they usually make a good impression, but abuse friendships.

[91-99]   Bright extrovert is characterized by outgoingness, activity, and the ability to make quick decisions. They are often too talkative.
