Topic Of Discussion - "Personality Traits" - Introverts Vs Extroverts
This week, I realized this is actually a debate to which personality trait is better.
Introverts are quiet people who likes to stay indoors basically. Extroverts are totally opposite.
Some say because an introvert doesn't talk alot, he/she is more observant and smarter. What do you think?
Are Introverts smarter than Extroverts?
What personality do you fall into?
Have you ever wished you exhibited the opposite trait?
Let Me start..
I'm an extrovert, infact a sparky sanguine. However,recently i think I'm losing my powers. I find myself indoors and bored. Good thing is, I still talk alot so i think I'm good.
There was a time that i admired introverts. They looked smarter. Now, I'm more curious as to how they do it for years. Like how do someone stay indoors forever?
And even when they socialize, it doesn't last long.
Feel free to ask more questions relating to the topic in the comment section.
Let the discussion begin....

😂 That giphy showing how introverts run home is so funny 🤣 now, I'm having a rethink that I'm really not an introvert because I always want to be outside with friends, having fun.
I really can't say I'm an extrovert too, I can switch really easily 😬 one minute I'm very quiet and another minute I'm so loud that you'd think I don't keep shut at all.
Well, I think introverts are smarter because they take time to think more than extroverts who just do as it comes. But extroverts can be super smart when they relax to think sha 😌
I don't jealous any traits, be it extrovert or introvert, I can be any of them at anytime... Just don't know if I'm a smart one 🙈
It's been long I've been here 😬 how has it been going for you all?
I'm here for the comments guys, bring it on! 💪
On the aspect of who is smarter between introverts and extroverts, here is my opinion, I don't think anyone is smarter than the other person just because the are calm or shy.
Who is smart is smart that's the truth, because I have seen people who are loud but smart asf and on the other hand I have seen people who are shy but are not smart. Being shy doesn't make you smart and being loud doesn't make you less smart.
That's true sha, I agree with you. I've also come across such people
😂😂 I see you as an extroverted person and I also see you as a smart person.
Nor be full one sha... We dey get half extrovert them, I be one of them 😂
😂😂Half extrovert koor, you better stay for your extrovert side.
I nor fit stay o 😂
I remember writing my introduction post, I needed to Describe the kind of person I was, I know I wasn't completely an introvert, and I wasn't completely an extrovert either but I have both traits, then I found the word “AMBIVERT”
I think the two traits compliments each other, I wouldn't want to be just one over another, it would be just too much of a personality for one person. BALANCE IS NEEDED
From what you just defined I think am an AMBIVERT, because I like staying indoors and my personal space but when am out I don't think of going back home, especially if am around friends I enjoy their company.
Welcome to ambivert club
Probably ambivert will suit me better too, Though as an introvert, the major reason that channel out my extrovert traits is my business ads, close pal or dancing.
Aside that, I'm just the regular indoor 24/7 type of introvert.
Hmm thank goodness for your business and others... Too much inside house is not too good 🤪
Probably to you o, to me it's very good, I get to reason well Without distraction and as well draft out design and co.
Outside is not for me😩, inside is my comfort zone 🤗
Only God knows how people do that 24/7 homey think..
I cant stay for that long o, at worst in the evening/night when nobody sees who, I'd take a stroll.
I can do it o, but then there are days I stroll around the neighborhood in the evening or night, I prefer then because I won't have to greet my neighbors or engage in unnecessary discussion.
Exactly, the night is the means to an end...the goal to not talk to anyone..and nobody go see you 😂
😂🤣 @temibot oya leave my mind, belike you reside or have one small viewing mirror, wey dey read my mind.
I see you dey feel am too, abi?😂
Well, its like I get this old grandma mirror with 5G network though..
Wo you are an introvert..😂
🥺 can't you keep a small secret.
Ambivert it is then... Because I'm both introvert and extrovert too.
I don see many people changing their status to ambivert...common you be introvert or extro as you have said earlier..no change am bruvvvv 🤣
I like sharing my space with a few people but I can't claim to be an Ambivert because I am not an outgoing person and I always want to be home by myself
I don't believe this ambivert thingy is real. You're either one or the other and then you have traits of the other. My opinion sha. Some people meet me in my extroverted moments and that's the idea they have of me, they can swear that my mouth always runs and I'm outgoing but that's not my default. You just met 10% of me.
I totally understand your point but imagine a scale of 0-100 with introvert at one end and extrovert at the other end and ambivert in the middle, Like you 90% introvert and 10% extrovert but is called introvert because its higher but someone like me that I am in between at 50 I can't identify as either naw..
You can meet me today as an introvert and tomorrow as an extrovert, it makes me look 2 faces sometimes and the best is to look for a name for my kind of personality
That's the thing, I never think it's 50:50 😄
Yes, I think we have that AMBIVERT in common o..I can be at home for a week and still go out but people would see me..I have got different routes when I want people to see me or not.
Wow, i have learnt a new word today
That's the word that really fit my personality.
Whoever thought introverts were clearly smarter than extroverts totally gets it all wrong. .one of the most powerful traits a human can have is to be outspoken and being to express yourself.
Its true that a lot of introverts are good with observation and noting detail, that's Smart...but we can't say for sure who's smarter ..both traits help in different situations.
I started off as an introvert, always locked indoors doing nothing but watching movies or any other thing. In as much as I was a smart kid, I lacked other areas. I was shy, couldn't express myself in public, even when I know the answers to the question I don't stand up to say the answer. So it affected me, I missed a lot of opportunities and it's quite regrettable. The only thing I could easily do was play football with others but I still wasn't confident enough...
Then I started to dance, being introverted dealt with me. I couldn't face people, if I caught them staring at me I just lose control. So i saw the need to change.. what i believe is that in most introverts they're bits of extroverted nature in them . You'll notice that when you get really close to an introvert you'll see that they're quite naughty, talkative and playfully .they just don't know how to show it.
So I started to work on myself, the university helped...we had a lot of instances where we were made to stand in front of people and talk...so i started to get the hang of it..now, I can pretty much talk in front of others and you'll pretty much think I'm an extrovert...but then I'm still an introvert because I still don't really talk, I only talk when spoken to..I can hardly just approach anyone and kickstart a conversation but I can still stand up and dance in front of a million people.
Does that make me an introveted extrovert????
Smile, you're still an introvert, I also felt like that at some point, but was able to get over it, aside necessary public place where I get to talk, I mostly stay silent, but with my league of close friends, I tend to talk at length.
A friend ones saw me discussing thoroughly with my neighbor, and was like, Kai you can pretend o, I just smile.
The thing is most Introverts don't channel out their inner extrovert traits until they're sure they can trust you or you're very close to them.
Lol...I find it hilarious that people would think an introvert doesn't talk at all. They're guarded people but they will go crazy when they're comfortable. It's not pretense at all.
You got the point Brother, it's isn't pretence, it just that we tend to be more open and free with people we understand and closer to.
So you can dance?
I want to be among the million people that watch you dance 😌
Well, I think I'll say you're an extroverted introvert 🤪 come and beat, I know they are the same kinda.
Omo e be like there are levels to this thing. Because I am an introvert but I do not have a problem expressing myself. Although I am not one to volunteer to answer a question but If I get picked I have no problem doing so in a few words of course.
Lol, you are still an introvert who knows how to express themselves
I can see how people would be surprised when you answer question(s) in class. They'd be like..WOWWW!!
😂😂 I guess you could say that.
Of course, why won't I?😁
This comrade could dance... ??😂😂😂
I need to see you don some steps, man.
Not answering questions in answer, that one am very good at that
Funny enough they still spot me on class and tell me to answer maybe we are few girls among boys because i'm in Engineering
It's good you learnt to express yourself, because someone people seems to ride on people because they are quiet
You know this exactly my story,
But then I still enjoy keeping to myself though the only difference is I now have more confidence in myself.
Good day famz, it great to be back among my fellow corntree pipu, and thank to @samostically for always bring us together weekly.
So in my response to this week questions.
Well firstly I'll say it all draw down your definition of smartness, cause smartness could be liken to your mood of dressing, intellectual knowledge and the likes.
But then it all draws that to the individual in question, we've seen less smart people in both personality traits, so how much you invest on yourself matters.
People think introvert are smart because they keep to themselves, so there's high tendency that they use does period to read and positively impact their lives.
But then on the other hand, since extrovert are the social and talkative type, they'll also want to equip themselves with enough knowledge about everything so as not to get embarrassed outside
most extrovert don't like such, and that's why you'll see they reply almost everything word for word.
So in my opinion both are smart depending on the individual being the veil of the personality traits.
I'm an introvert, and just like every other introvert like me, I derived pleasure from being alone or indoor, in fact, it's like I'm under punishment whenever I'm outside or within too many people who ain't in the league of my close friends.
Talk to me physically, and the longest response you'll get is 5words, but communing with me online, it could lead to a whole page🤭, it's what it's.
Hmmm I've actually wish for such while I was younger and during by undergraduate days, it's just seem so rediculous how easy it's for extrovert to get along and communicate with everyone, while I as an introvert see it as a difficult task to engage in, then am always overwhelmed by how they crack jokes and get everyone laughing, how they easily wow a lady, and they are popular among folks around,
try walk with an extrovert along the road, you'll think you're invisible, with the way people will be greeting them left and right before you get to your destination, and you may not get a single hi.
But now I know better, it isn't my kind of personality, I once try to replicate their act, and I failed woefully, even get to fade off some people they more.
Now I'm after becoming a better version of myself not to be like anyone.
I love this response... Especially with the walking with an extrovert, it happens to me too but I've learned better as well.
And you're so funny! You give long reply online but a few words in a reality conversation 😂 that's really funny.
Seriously that's mean for you, I just kind of fall short of words physical, most especially if am not that close with the person. (Though such behaviour no reach my craft oo, who no like money😂).
Knowing better and making the best out of my personality is one of the best thing I ever did.
Thanks for your kind words.
No na, as you nor like money, you for drop only one word give your customer na 😂
I agree with you, we got this (the introverts forming extroverts 🤣)
Yes, this is where I do not like going out with those who are extremely extros cos they know everybody and everybody knows them! But you know what, I found a way ..What I do is, the second someone who I do not know greet them, I look straight ahead not left or right..🤣
Lolz 🤣🤣 na money be the Koko o, I speak as long as I can convince you to purchase my crafted wears.
Thanks so much for your kind words.
Is alright, good one 👍
Yup. It's important to understand your personality and make the best out of it.
Absolutely, thanks you're on point.
I used to wonder how it came easy for them to just go out and talk to random people while I on the other hand will avoid any form of conversation by any means necessary.
It takes practice for people with mixed personalities 😆. I've shocked myself many times.
😂 Omo it must be nice to be like that o
Sometimes. There are times I meet people when I'm in my extrovert self and then I'm happy to talk to them but they have no idea it's a temporary personality. Next thing I have invites to go out when I don't feel like it and I end up blocking phone numbers coz no be me you wan stress.
😂😂 this right here. It has put me in trouble more than once. Sometimes people meet me around my friends when I'm chatty and playful and automatically think I should be like that with them.
Very well, I have that part on social media too..I unleash my whole self in words when on social media but may talk little to nothing when I am outside but it boils down to who.. onky if its someone I am not close to most times a lady..bUT if we are cool ehn, I can talk outside o..DOn't break o😁
We are alike bro, social media make me speak words countless words in a day that my mouth may not say for a whole week.
Very well. At least we've the toold if we do not wanna say much..
I like core introverts because when I get into their skin I know what makes them talk. They're usually the best people to hang out with.
Smile, seems you've got a lot of us as friend's, to know that with the right set of people whom be blend with, we are talkative.
Yes, that is if you know what will make them open up. But if one does not, it will just render any meeting or engagement boring to the core.
It's true both personality are smart
I also noticed you don't talk too much although i haven't met you in person, when we chat you just answer my question and conversation ends
But it good you still help out
Chai see my life outside 😂😂😂, that's my kind of person sha, had it been physical I might not respond unto that one self.
But as we get to know each other, I'll become more free towards such person .
That's fine sha
Have a lovely night
You too dear.
Guy I agree with you.
Does not mean all because introvert keeps to themselves automatically they are smart and yes it depends on what we quote to be called smart.
This is screaming me..lol
Lolz, it's good to see a like mind on the street of hive.
Tag me in @samostically
This is me after 2 hours of socializing. I am an introvert to the core. The thought of leaving my house is so stressful. You know when someone cancels a plan you've been wanting to cancel so now you have to act disappointed when you are happy to stay home - that's me.
I wouldn't say introverts are smarter though, yes, they observe more than they speak. I don't think your personality type has anything to do with how smart you are, it may help enhance it, that's why introverts seem smarter but inherently it is all about the individual regardless of their personality type.
For the longest time, I used to tell my friends I wished I went out more in school or socialized more. All that changed when a few weeks ago I went to the club for the first time. I hated the whole experience and the whole time I wished I had gone up. So no I don't want to be extroverted, the outside life drains me abeg.
True, being an introvert does not relate to being smarter at all. And being an extrovert does not mean otherwise.. I cannot imagine you. with what you wrote here, being in a club..I am sure it'd seem like hell cos you may just be looking around.🤣
And that image sure seems you are exhausted from interacting with people..so hilarious..😂
😂😂 After an hour of trying to convince me to like and enjoy the experience I gave up and went to sleep in the car. No be me them go use noise kill.
Although, I never go clubbing before but I do not think I like those loud sounds or beats....even when our church sound dey loud, I do tell my guys who are part of the technical team to go reduce am..or I steer cleat of the speaker!
Lol, it's not a pretty experience. Loud music and smoke... Never again
It can be very loud and irritating.... I can't do well with loud and irritating but I can manage an outdoor party with calm sound and good ambience and great music
Yeah I can do this too.
Rxactly, you got the point.
...oh .and smoke..I abhor that a lot. Me wey anytine I smell something I do not like, boom catarrh loading..let alone now sitting and gisting in smoke.
Club sweet scatter and i also love my space
That is quite an oxymoron. enough. 🤣
People assume everyone goes for the people, I enjoy clubs for the loud music.
Reminds me of music banging in my headphones but this time I have visuals to compliment it.
It doesn't mean anything oo
Even some introvert knows nothing
Although it is good to listen than talk
Yes, but I do not think I'd like someone who does not know something and still keep quiet...
Of course, its generally better to do more listening than talking...
Some people don't talk when they don't know something because they fe they will be mocked
Yes, and it is a bad o. And it can make things go out of hand at times when to talk is necessary to salvage a situation..
Yeah your right
😆 you went to a club for the first time just a few weeks ago??? Mad o
I don't think personality has anything to do with mental capabilities too. People function differently in different situations.
😂Clubbing has never been my thing. I wouldn't have gone if not for an event I attended that lasted into the night and I had to stay with the people I came with.
My point exactly. I am not so fond of human interaction but you see that loud music for club, e be like say them use am swear for me.
I like am scatter!!!!
Lol i know that feeling right
In school my roommate would tell me let's go out but for me to wear cloth and go out is far
The spirit is willing but the body is weak... hahahahahaha
Hahaha, exactly, the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Sometimes I even look forward to the outing, then at the last minute, I just lose interest.
It happens to me too o
Mama support am with Bible verse, oshey pastor mrs..🤣
I'm a child of God na
Of course, no one is disputing that na..😁
I know tho
😂😂 wetin person go do
..more or less like "What shall the son of man do?"
Man of God, I'm feeling the spirit😂
Oh, you're feeling it ...your name is @blezyn, you're gonna be a blessing to your generAtion. Amen?
Ah, for you to wear cloth lasan is wahala..?😅
This cat is me.
This is me too. Infact, I have a date with a friend today and I'm lowkey hoping she cancels but I know she won't. My body is tired already and I've not even left the house even when I know I will have a good time.
😂😂 I can relate because most times it's not like it won't be fun, your body is just not interested.
I have some people like that o, they will agree to a date but deep down them no wan attend or they will pray to cancel at the eleventh hour..
Lol that part about outside life draining you are right there.
Being am introvert does not mean people who fall in that category are not fun to be with.
They are just comfortable with small space and relate more
Exactly, it's draining when there are too many people in my space.
One type of personality is not smarter than the other. I don't even know why it's a debate on who's better. I'm an introvert and a very proud one no matter how many times people try to prove that something is wrong with me for being that way.
I can stay in my house morning till night, all week and I am not bored for one second. Outside drains my energy physically and mentally, and small talk bores me too.
Introverts know how to have a good time outside if they want to but they need to recharge because their battery doesn't last.
I have never wished to be an extrovert, with what energy abeg?
For a week? 🙆♂
You get strenght o
Nothing dey outside
Plenty dey o... Na just you no like am.🤣
Nothing dey wey we never see before
Lol, lemme borrow you energy
At some point to out abeg
You will thank me for that
Lol...thank you for what?
I go out if I want to. It's not a regular thing and doesn't have to be.
Okay if you say so
But that your 1 week sef
I no fit try am for house
They will use errands to take you outside sef
Maybe i do that when am in school
Ehya...when I lived with my parents them no dey send me anyhow sha.
Lol, maybe because you are a guy or you have younger ones
I'm female and the last child. My parents just respect my introverted nature.
Oh sorry i misinterpreted your gender. That NFT on your profile, i was just thinking you were a boy
My cute hive punk can be misleading.
Lol they believe girls don't know Nft stuffs and Cryptocurrencies not knowing we are getting knowledge and even leading now lol...if you don't mind i can be friends with you
I need friends that will teach me more
Pls wheb you see them, abeg no forget me o
Lol, you way be baba
Who am I to be called baba? 😩
Your doing well on hive
I'm sure you will be doing well too in crypto
Mama chidi, what makes you do sure..?😂
For some reason i find this funny, the aspect that says introverts are always smart and great thinkers. Maybe yes in some cases but let's face the fact that most people are introverts not because they want to but due to lack of opportunity to go out.
Especially with those that has strict parents.
Personally i am an introvert, just give me light, food and data. I can stay indoors for as along as i wish. Basically this doesn't mean that i don't know how things works outside no, trust me i will educate you on things of the outside morethan the person you see always going out or hanging out.
I used to be an extrovert but i got to a point were i saw certain things and that changed my perspective about hanging out especially with friends. Normally as a guy we would hangout,drink, womanize and all. But one day i sat myself down to ask myself the gain from all these late nights and all, found out i have been wasting my time on the wrong things and gradually digging my own grave.
Yes some introverts are smart, some extroverts are smart too. It all boils down to individuals. Someone who is smart is smart, it has nothing to do with staying indoors or hanging out alot.
If you are an introvert and you enjoy being one, fine continue but at some point try to hangout once in a while. Same for to extroverts (Try to be less available sometimes, it saves life).
I am an introvert doesn't mean i don't know how to have fun or i am under any rules no. Most of us have different experiences about things and when you get older you will understand better
Of course, youve got this.. At times, I just make myself scarce... at times, for nothing or if I have some important stuff doing and I do not want disturbance.
Omo this point is one of the best points have seen.
You see those people that doesn't talk to much an are always to themselves fear them, you don't know what bis going through their time.
When a child is raised with strict parents and an environment where only them lives naturally they turn introvert, but just free them or they get admission omo you go fear.
You will live long, swears 😂
And you too man ❤️
Well, your sins are 2 in number..first, not tagging me - that could be overlooked. the latter, you gotta pay a fine of just 20 hbd. That's all @samostically, then you can go and sin no more.
Now, to the topic for today..
For me, I do not think I am entirely either of an introvert or an extrovert. I think I am a combo of the two. I hear the word ambivert exists. I believe that explains me then.
Why? Cos I am someone who at times just keeps quiet at some point in time and at the other time, I can make noise or cook jokes such that everyone would know that I am around. FYI, this ain't mood swings, I never have mood swings 😂cos I hate it when people do.
Although, for me, when I am exhibiting the trait of an introvert, I may just wanna be in my room all day or just do not want to talk to people. Most times, not without reason, I am someone who observes a lot anytime I get to a new place, the way I could be cool ehn, you'd think- Oh, this guy is calm but to myself, I'd be like you dont know about it. Also, when I am home from school and when I am out, I greet almost everybody but if I do not want to greet or see anyone who knows me, I have series of shortcuts I take where people do not know me..
Am I weird? Nope..Its just me!😁
Not at all, I don't think smartness is dependent on a personality trait but, I do know that introverts pay more attention to details because of their personality so that could be a reason why people feel they are smarter.
What personality do you fall into?
Not at all because I can be whichever I choose to be, it might take more effort but I have never had issues with these or fitting in unless it is based on my anxiety.
Yeah, you can be an introvert and not be smart and then an extrovert and be smart.
The best thing learn to express yourself and then do more listening than talking.
I think I'm a comfortable combination of both.
There are times I can be the loudest in the room, and other times, I'm the wallflower that I hope nobody notices.
I could spend an entire week going to parties every single day and then spend 3 to 6 months just loving up on my couch at home, resting from that 1 week of adventure.
I love parties and dancing and loud music but I also love sitting home with a good book or some casual work or even a nice movie just as much as the other activities.
For me, it's a mood thing. In both situations, I consider myself still mentally sound so I can't say one personality is better than the other.
As much as I can hold down a conversation for hours, I also like staying quiet and just watching people.
I guess I have the best of both world.
This is exactly my personality
When i meet someone they ask why am i quiet, they get to know me and ask why do i talk to much, i keep quiet they ask why am i being moody..lol
Funny, I don't talk a lot. After I realised I don't know much, I became more inclined to listen than speak. I can keep a conversation going because I'm generally curious.
When you have known almost everything about a person , they might not be anything to talk about again
Can you really know almost everything about a person? There's always something to talk about. There's so much information in the world.
Have you been friends with someone for like 5 years or more???
What else do you want to know about such person again
What you can actually talk about may be current experience going on in the persons life, that's if they want to share with you
Lol.. This is very true
I could remember my secondary school days, there was the boy, we were always dragging go gets first position every term.
But this boy is so rough and they didn't even give him perfect in secondary school that was the height of his roughness.
Funny enough when results comes out he become one of the best..lol
It doesn't Matter if you are an introvert or extrovert what matters it how you put your brain to work.
As for me, i can be both
I'm always an introvert to people who always meet me they will be like "why i you so quiet" and the moment i get used to them they complain that i talk to much
When am quite they ask why am moody.lol
I could stay hours with my phone as far as there's good internet and light
I really enjoy my own company because normally i no even like wahala and see finish.lol
I won't say i am an introver or an extrovert. Maybe an ambivert because i do enjoy conversations and outings a lot. But i also get bored easily. Thing is, i dont know how to start up a conversation, but i know how to keep a conversation going. Moving from one topic, branching into another, that's easy. I could stay in a room for 24 hours or more with a person and not say anything to them. It's like I'm shy, like i need a push. In car terms, I'm like a supercar with no launch control, weighs a lot but have a very high top speed and redline rev (if you know what i mean).
It's better you can even keep conversation going sef
If am talking to someone and they don't give same energy like trying to keep conversation going, i get tired
Yeah, some just don't have the energy to continue pushing. It is tiring and mentally draining.
I understand you
Have been there
But please don't give up
You will thank me later
Yeah, i won't. Thanks for the kind words
I'm always here
Are introverts smarter than extroverts? I wouldn't really agree to that because it all boils down to the individual. But, introverts are seen to be smarter because they hardly talk, and when they do talk, they talk sense because they've thought it over and over, possibly over thought it before giving a reply. Is that the definition of smart? Yea but that does is not a determinant as to who's smarter. Smartness is subjective
"Personality Traits" - Introverts Vs Extroverts
Being an introvert or extrovert has its unique advantage as situation demands. From my interpersonal relationship with family and friends, I have encountered both groups.
An introvert is a quiet type that does more of listening than talking. In fact, most of them like anything that keep them indoor. When it comes to keeping records of peoples spoken words, the one that does more of listening does better here than an extrovert. This is very useful in the areas of intelligence gathering in fight against crime. When measured against an extrovert here, one may conclude that an introvert is more observant and smarter.
On the other hand, an extrovert is good in representing the voice of the people. When it comes to holding leaders responsible for the advancement of the society,an extrovert is the perfect fit. When compared with an introvert in this regard, an extrovert may be seen more intelligent.
There are numerous more examples that explain the strength and weaknesses of being and extrovert or introvert.
Hence, I conclude that the strength of an extrovert is the weakness of an introvert and vice versa. Both groups are intelligent and smart in their unique ways.
I am an extrovert. I love to always outside amidst people where my voice could be heard. In some instance, I wished to be an introvert especially when I see myself lacking in what is ordinarily a strength to an introvert.
I love to be tagged henceforth. Thank you all in this great community.
Nice points you made there
Anyway any personality we find ourselves to be, we should be a good one
Yeah. We should always strive to make positive impact on the society with our traits whether extrovert or introvert.
Have a lovely day
Yeah you are right both has it importance and both are even needed in the society.
Yeah. The society should leverage on the strength of each to make a change.
Introvert and extroverts both are smart just depends on the part we define to be smart.
You need to see some extrovert they way they socialize with you, you already know they are smart, their response and all.
And just because you don't socialize does not automatically mean you would be smart.
I'm an introvert ohh lord!!
I enjoy my space and my music
I can be indoor all through as long as everything I need is Indoor...so times I even get to be dragged out all because I prefer staying indoor.
But you vibe with me then you get to see how fun I can be.
I just prefer that small circle I dont know why and the need to always be out is not my thing.

Ahhh omo I'm just seeing this banter ooo but I will still chook mouth 😂. Firstly, nice comments every one. I had to run through it before getting my thoughts together to drop my own opinion un-influenced. I don't really know but instead of being redundant, I still go with the truthful fact that it all boils down to an individual's intellect. Weda u be introvert or not, if u no get sense to sabi talk, then u no get. And I'll say childhood mostly have influence on being an introvert or extrovert. Some kids usually the rich ones that reside in estates back in the day while I was growing, mostly seem like the "efiko's" and they are always gentle. Not until I saw the same set of children playing roughly in their compound the day I went to that estate with my mom lol. In my mind I was like "mad oooo, so them this ones sabi play" lol. While my mom was busy and as a barrack child, I invited myself to the children gathering and they reciprocated the feeling and accommodated me. Either way, they had no choice 😂
What am I hitting at? Being what we might be, the environment will definitely have an impact.
I'm not an introvert, neither am I an extrovert because my mom runs a business and I am always representing at the shop. Whether or not I like it, I'll have to communicate with the customers and if you no talk well, baba you go loose money, walahi.
But still, I like the feeling of just being indoors, sipping water, pressing my phone and minding my business. And @blezyn, babe I can totally relate to that feeling of acting disappointed after a canceled outing lol. I go out, yes but only on a very rare occasion and I'll have to make plans one week ahead 😂😂.
I just want to continue living like this abeg. The stress in Nigeria is enough already, I can't come and kill myself.
Hahaha, e be like that sometimes. You have a point, the environment also matters, there are also people like us that grew up in the ghetto are but are still introverts
