Introvert and Extroverts: What’s myth and What’s Reality?
In his article “5 Myths about introverts and Extroverts at Work“, Adam Grant challenges the beliefs of introverts and extroverts. He says its time to debunk the following five myths: Myth 1: “Extroverts get energy from social interaction, whereas introverts get energy from privately reflecting on their thoughts and feelings.” Extensive research, claims Grant, shows this is false. He maintains:
- Introverts spend about the same amount of time with other people as extroverts, and enjoy it just as much.
- When people are randomly assigned to act extroverted or introverted, extroverts and introverts alike experience greater energy when they talk more.
- Extroverts report the most energy when they’re being talkative and assertive—but so do introverts. This is true when people rate their energy during 45 different hours over two weeks or weekly for ten weeks: the energizing hours and weeks for all of us are those that involve more active social interaction, regardless of whether we’re working, reading, eating, or partying.
