Ambivert. A good dopamine word or maybe you’re just completely confused.
noun: ambivert; plural noun: ambiverts
a person who has a balance of extrovert and introvert features in their personality.
An ambivert is a personality type that adapts to its environment. When it’s in an environment where everything is quiet, at ease and peaceful they will act introverted. When in a clubbing or party setting, where there are many people, it will act like an extrovert.
I should clarify what I mean when I say ‘act’. In my experience, yes I do adapt to my environment and act accordingly, but most of the time I feel a need for one or the other. I can only spend so much time alone then I want to be in an overstimulating environment. When I’ve had enough of people I need to be alone for a while. To ‘recharge’ in a way, but only halfway, then I need to go back to an overstimulating environment.
Ambiverts are also versatile. Because of this, they perform very well in sales positions, management and make good psychologists. It’s said that ambiverts speak and listen very well. This makes sense when you think about it because they can adapt to most social situations. They also tend to speak comfortably and are good listeners. But it will vary from person to person.
I’ve found that being an ambivert has helped me create a good balance in my life. Doesn’t matter what the situation, I’ll always be able to adapt to it.
