Most people think wrong about introverted and extroverted personality characteristics. In reality there is no single concept that can put individuals strictly on one side of the scale or the other. According to most theories, everybody has a degree of introversion and extroversion.
Psychiatrists Carl G. Jung first introduced the concept of introversion in the early 1900s. According to Jung, being introverted or extroverted can be defined by looking at the decrease or increase in energy with social preferences. Introverted personality types relax in environments with as little stimulation as possible and prefer to return to themselves and stay with themselves in order to regenerate and strengthen. Extroverts prefer to be connected with others and feel filled with energy in social situations.
For an accountant, perseverance, concentration, diligence, attention and the desire to get to the bottom of the truth are important, and an introverted person has all these qualities. Moreover, it is much easier to “communicate” with numbers than with people. The same can be said for the financial analyst profession. For an extrovert, these jobs can seem very boring.
Software developers spend most of their time in front of a computer. They can work remotely with clients, even if the job requires them to be in an office, often they are too passionate about their job they forget about other people’s presence. This job requires concentration and perseverance so it is ideal for introverted people. Sure, it’s not easy to master this job, but it’s worth it, you can earn good money with this job.
In a designer’s work, the ability to break free from the outside world is important for plunging into the world of their own fantasies that will later emerge in their work. In order to be able to explain it to everyone with their works, they must have the sensitivity and ability to notice beauty in places that others cannot see. For this reason, good designers are more introverted by nature than others.
Many people know the phrase “The more I know people, the more I love dogs.” It is now known exactly who said this first, it has been mentioned with Socrates, Heinrich Heine, and Schopenhauer. However, apparently this person was an introvert. After all, those who are sensitive, vulnerable are introverted and easy to be offended with words. It may be easier for introverts to find common ground with animals than with humans.
