If you’re an extroverted introvert, you’re the kind of person people want to get to know. They’re the type of people that fly under the radar, but once you get to know them, you have an amazing time. Here are 12 signs you’re an extroverted introvert.
1. Before going to a social event, you feel anxious.
But once you’re there you have no problem talking with people and making friends. You are good at socializing, but the thought of doing it is a little unsettling.
2. Large groups are not your cup of tea.
You avoid large gatherings and prefer smaller intimate ones, where you can connect on a deeper level.
3. You skip the small talk.
You make it a point to memorize details about people so you can ask them about it later. For example, instead of making petty small talk, you say something along the lines of, “hey, how did that psychology class end up going; I know you were struggling.”
4. You make people feel important.
Because you like small groups, you are good at connecting with people and making them feel important.
5. You don’t have a central group of friends.
Instead of having a group of friends that you hang out with 24/7, you pull people from all kinds of social groups and hang out with them individually.
6. You need a balance of quiet and socializing time.
You enjoy socializing at times, but other times you love to be at home with a nice movie and a face mask. You value both situations.
7. You may be alone, but you are not lonely.
Some people need to be around others at all times, but not you. You are content with the quiet and being alone.
8. You are the conversation saver.
If someone has a harder time at socializing than you, you are good at making them feel comfortable. You also keep the conversation going without hitting that awkward wall.
9. You can be a follower and a leader.
When the situation comes for you to be a leader, you do a dang good job at it. But you are also good at taking direction and not having to dominate those around you.
10. You are always analyzing.
Sure, you are having a great conversation with someone, but you are always thinking and analyzing. You are watching the person’s body language and paying attention to your surroundings (but no one would ever know).
11. Attention is not required.
You don’t need people to tell you how awesome you are; you already know. People giving you compliments stresses you out; you would rather dish them out. You are not the kind to seek attention.
12. People think you’re an extrovert.
You’re good at hiding your introverted side; people would never guess you consider yourself an extroverted introvert.
