STRONG GRATISOULS

AMBIVERT

definition – ambivert – /ˈambɪvəːt/ noun PSYCHOLOGY- a person who has a balance of extrovert and introvert features in their personality.

In my juvenile years, I was a reserved, shy and an extremely introvert person. I used to talk to limited people, didn’t like to socialize much and preferred the company of just a few of my friends and family and myself. I would still prefer a heart-to-heart conversation with my people over a party… well on some days at least!! (Yeah sometimes I want to become a party animal and dance like a crazy person haha).

JOURNEY FROM AN INTROVERT TO AN AMBIVERT…

Gradually I started feeling that my lack of expressing my emotions is becoming an emotional barrier and I am not able to convey what I actually wanted to say. I want to talk it out, but thinking about what will be the consequences if the situation becomes worse, I preferred keeping things to myself and would resolve it on my own. But somehow it started making me feel a bit distant from the people who mattered to me a lot. I didn’t know what was going wrong.


Quotes on Introverts

INTROVERT PROBLEMS

The biggest misconception about an introvert person is that people think that they are not opinionated, they don’t have emotions because they don’t express it that efficiently as extroverts can do. Yes, introverts require time and space to express themselves but they do express themselves in their own way. It just requires a person to understand and appreciate their efforts that they are gradually opening up.

          If you are an introvert, first of all, appreciate yourself because it requires patience, understanding, and strength to control your emotions when you desperately want to say it out loud. You don’t have to hate yourself for it. YOU ARE UNIQUE IN YOUR OWN SWEET WAY.

But if you think that your lack of expressing your thoughts is creating a grudge amongst your loved ones and you feel that you should try being an ‘ambivert’ if not an extrovert (because let’s be real, transformation from an introvert to an extrovert requires time and efforts so let’s achieve the mid-way first) so that at least you can say what you want to (at least sometimes) read these simple steps…

Extrovert Quotes

HOW TO EXPRESS LIKE AN AMBIVERT?

(Just to clarify, these are some steps which I followed and you can twist and blend them in your own way too!!)

1. If you want to convey your opinion but can’t, at the right time, don’t feel bad…. initially, try to converse in front of a mirror. Just imagine that the exact same situation is happening and say what you wanted to say at that time. In that way, you’ll feel some kind of satisfaction that at least you finally let it out, whatever was bothering you. Even though there was nobody in front of you still conveying what you wanted to say would bring you inner peace.

2. After mastering the first step, the next step is to try to say at least bits and fragments of your actual thought/opinion. You’ll hesitate primarily, you’ll hate yourself for it that why couldn’t you say the right things at right time, but you have to remain patient at that time (use your introvert power of remaining calm and patient at that time… haha) you have to try again and again until you can finally reach to a level where you can effortlessly convey your message (that’ll take some time though, but you’ll reach there).

3. Try to come out of your comfort zone. Experience something new every day. Go to random new places in your own city, pick up an outdoor hobby, join any cultural/ literary/ dramatics club where you would be forced to take responsibilities that’ll push you to socialize and converse with people of different age groups. Stepping out of your comfort zone would make you confident and you’ll find it easy to start a random conversation anywhere anytime. And that, in turn, will make you an ambivert and finally an extrovert who’ll not hesitate to express anymore.

ONE BONUS LAZY STEP…

And the easiest step would be to wait for an extrovert person who’ll adopt you and would drag you to do things that you’ll never do on your own… (Haha Just kidding)

Ambivert Quotes

Follow these 3 simple steps to transform your introvert side into an ambivert. I’m not discouraging that introverts should change themselves, I too was an introvert, I wanted to change because I started having grudges with my friends and family because I couldn’t express what was killing me inside. Just to express my inner emotions and feelings I decided to change myself into an ambivert.

So, if you are an introvert, appreciate yourself. You are a Rockstar. If you are an ambivert, that’s great! You can easily gel up with introverts and extroverts. And if you are an extrovert, well you are also amazing! In short, embrace who you are, and if you feel that your personality is creating any sort of hindrance in your relationships, introspect and do what is needful to protect that relationship. Because we humans breathe and live on LOVE.

SAY WHAT YOU MEAN, JUST DON’T SAY IT MEAN.

Another brilliant post! I am an introvert to the max and it does hinder me in my relationships. I definitely need to start practicing these steps or do something to change things fast. I need to start sticking up for myself and telling others what I want and what I am thinking.

    Yes, that’s a tough yet brave step! You can do it though!! If you feel that you have to say what you want to say and it’s killing you to keep it inside then you have to say it. It’s probably for your own good and inner peace!!
    Thank you for your appreciation and for sharing your opinions!!

Fantastic and informative post!! I would definitely consider myself both an introvert and extrovert. I actually touch on this subject briefly in one of my posts about the Emotions of Creativity. Glad to see a post about this topic! Thanks for sharing!

when i talk with other people and we try to define ourselves as extroverts, ambiverts or introverts…i always said introvert. however i remember people looking at me weird saying, “but you are so good in front of people” even when i am usually terrified…i liked your explanation of introverts. really appreciate it.



    May 8, 2019 at 1:17 AM

    Yes, that’s a common misconception… people tend to think that if introverts talk that means they are extroverts, it’s not always the truth!! Each coin has two sides and just for being social or for having meaningful discussions, introverts can talk too, and that is really appreciating!

I am more introvert than Extrovert, but I think I can be both sometimes. Especially when I am around my best friends.
But I just love spending my Friday/Saturday evenings at home instead of going out with friends.

I am introvert but the when I talk about about something I am passionate or versed about I am extroverted. I wish people could understand that introverts can be both!



    May 8, 2019 at 1:11 AM

    It’s okay if people don’t understand your true personality. What’s important is you should stay true to your self, and the right people will come in your life, know you true-self and stay.

Hey thanks for sharing this. My sister is an introvert and married a.man who us both and its interesting to see their fights. I’ll share this with her. Great key points.



May 9, 2019 at 9:08 PM

Absolutely agree. There are too many labels, but if I had to label myself I’m an ambivert 🙂 I don’t fit in with an introvert or extrovert. I’d never heard of it before until this article. Amazing



May 9, 2019 at 10:33 PM

Great post! I have always been an introvert, but my current job has forced me to step out of my comfort zone over the last few years and have to speak in public and interact one-on-one with a lot of people. I think I would now identify as an ambivert too. I had previously never heard of this term before.



    May 11, 2019 at 1:11 AM

    Haha, that’s great if I introduced you to a term that reflects your personality!! Stepping out of the comfort zone is important if we want to achieve big in life!
    Sending you all the positive vibes for your future endeavors.

This is great! I am naturally an introvert. I was a lot like you as a child shy and quiet. As I got older I feel like in certain situations I am an extrovert. However, I have to be careful cause it can be quite draining.



    May 11, 2019 at 1:09 AM

    Yes, I guess with age introverts turn into ambiverts or extroverts because certain situations require you to talk and react and that’s when the game changes, probably for the best though!
    Thank you for sharing your opinions on the same.

I’d never even heard of that word before. It’s good to learn something new. Thanks for sharing



May 15, 2019 at 2:12 PM

Interesting article that I can relate to. I would not really consider myself an introvert, though I do have traits similar to introverts. I love to observe some situations first and I totally love small company over a crowd.
