It's Time To Let Extroverts Be Themselves And Stop Judging Them For Their 'Overwhelming' Personalities

Extroverts help make the world go 'round.

Julia Price

An extrovert is often described as a sociable, expressive person.

Some characteristics include friendly, outgoing, energetic, assertiveness, engaging, talkative, etc. As an extrovert, you'd be surprised at how many times I have received a look or a comment about something that simply makes me, me.

I, along with other extroverts, are tired of being judged for the characteristics that make us special.

Typically, we are loud, and no, this is not for attention. Honestly, we are just easily excited. I can't even begin to tell you the number of times I have run into my house hollering for my sister just because I am so excited to see her and to be home.

We also have the ability to converse with just about anyone. I wish I was lying when I say I can carry on a conversation with a brick wall. Heck, I even talk in my sleep! It would be super hard to set me up with someone that I can't talk to for at least fifteen minutes. I tend to find social interactions refreshing and "good for the soul."

Extroverts are very easily distracted. It's seriously so annoying too. I can tell you six different stories while trying to tell you one, and then I get so off track that I forget what I was originally talking about.

We even get bored ridiculously easy. I do believe that I have mastered the art of multi-tasking because just the thought of working on one thing for longer than thirty minutes has me in shambles.

I hate to admit it, but I am so guilty of always wanting to be the center of attention. Honestly, I will purposefully schedule myself to arrive late to gatherings in an attempt to make an "entrance." What can I say? I love to be seen.

Extroverts are also the definition of "impulse actors." I can't tell you the last time I actually weighed out and considered the consequences and/or benefits of a decision I'm going to make. I realize that to some of you that may sound absurd, but you have your way of doing things and I have mine. At this point, acting before thinking is just something that I consider a personality trait.

Seriously though, what is alone time? Sure, there are times when I enjoy being by myself, but if I'm given the choice between a night out with friends or a night in by myself. No doubt I'm going with my friends. It would probably be in my best interest to stay at home and do something productive, but really? Alone? Need I say more?

One of the best things about being an extrovert is that we're usually super easy to get along with. Making new friends and socializing with new people is something that (thankfully) comes naturally to me.

I know that by reading this it won't bring you to fully understand what it's like in the mind of an extrovert, but maybe it'll help those of you who do judge, or those of you who have judged before, to grow to like, or at least understand, the assertive personality that comes with being around an extrovert. My extroversion is what drove me to choose the career path that I am on today, and for that, I am so thankful.

You have to bribe me to shut me up, I always have an opinion, I am loud, but I am still so proud of my energetic personality and how far it's brought me.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
