Have you ever felt a sort of dismay upon being asked whether “you are you an introvert or an extrovert?” If this question has ever made you answer less then congratulations, you’re an ambivert! Ambiverts belong to a third category which lies somewhere in the middle of an introvert and extrovert. Being an ambivert is a unique cycle; sometimes you like spending time alone, and sometimes you get crazy out of your mind to find all the fun outside. Ambiverts love having fun, only with the people they want to have fun with. It is a personality type which is ignored in the chaos of the whole “introverts” and “extroverts” deal; This type, however, has its own dimensions. They are shy People who are ambiverts are shy, and they won’t ever play the role as conversation starters. Ambiverts, genuinely, put effort into maintaining a conversation with only the people they like. So if you, ever in your life, happen to meet an ambivert who likes talking to you, then my friend, we believe you should feel special. Re-chargeable batteries Ambiverts like to hang out with their friends and family. They love trying new, adventurous things, and having fun. All of this happens only when their batteries are charged. Once you meet an ambivert, you will feel like there’s a battery fit somewhere in them, which only functions for a limited time. They need their ‘Me Time’ to recharge their batteries again, and come back to life. Meeting new people Meeting new people is like a new adventure for them; however, the adventure is only fun-filled when they have their friends around. Careful talkers Ambiverts are smooth talkers, and thinking before they speak is not a problem for this type at all. There are times, though, when they end up saying the stupidest of things and then they make fun of their own selves. Party Animal Ambiverts have a cute little party animal hidden somewhere in them. The animal usually wakes up on weekends and then you will see these ambiverts hanging out on streets and doing all the possible crazy things. Precise amount of attention Excess, unwanted attention freaks them out. They only like getting attention from the people they want to get it grom, and in this case, surplus attention can hit the bull’s eye. They are easy going Once you get to know them, they are easy going. They are people who won’t judge you; they will empathize with you and will help you deal with life. They blend in easily Ambiverts blend in easily, in every social gathering; they are friends with, both, introverts and extroverts. Discover yourself and have fun!
