Extroverts and Introverts have it easy. They know who they are and can be content with it. However, there is a group of people who aren't so lucky.
They are the ones who have skipped going out with friends because they just wanted to stay in but immediately regretted it.
They are the ones who are excited for weeks about going somewhere but just want to go home when they get there.
They are the Outgoing Introverts and here's how you know if you are one.
1. You think about going out more than you actually do.
Yes, spending a whole night alone watching Netflix is great, but after a few nights of this, you start going insane. It's not long until you want to go out with friends but often don't because, well, you're still an introvert.
2. You want to go somewhere, but once you get there you just want to go home.
You enjoy being with friends but even if you want to have fun you'll often end up wanting to go home before the night is over. Even if you're the one who made the plans.
3. You hate small talk.
Like seriously, its just a waste of time.
4. Sometimes you're the life of the party, others you're a wallflower.
Honestly, this part isn't bad. You can get the best of both worlds, however, you don't choose what you are. It just depends on the night.
5. You get upset when no one wants to hang out, but also make up reasons why you can't go out.
Your friends might be confused by this, but if they know you they are probably used to it.
While often times its hard to be an outgoing introvert, theres also great parts to it. I consider myself one and I wouldn't have it any other way. I am who I am, and I couldn't imagine being a complete introvert or complete extrovert. Nobody is a complete extrovert or introvert. Its more like a spectrum, and most people fall somewhere in-between. Being an outgoing introvert really just means that I move around the spectrum a lot, and thats okay.
