Being An Introverted Extrovert

I would consider myself to be an "introverted extrovert" and for those of you who are somewhat baffled by this phrase... it means someone who falls in the middle of being outgoing as well as enjoying time alone. When these terms come into society we immediately think you have to be one or the other - you can't be both. But the fact is as some may know there is a scale in which you can be on, which proves you can be between the two. 

I am a big fan of getting out and meeting new people. Spending time with friends and basically having a fairly unique social life. If you were to see me with my friends on a night you would most likely think I am extrovert. I would be laughing and joking and most likely trying to get you involved with the fun. However I am also very much of a introvert too, I enjoy spending time on my own and it wouldn't be unusual if you were to see me in a coffee shop enjoying a cup of tea in my own little world.

As much as I do enjoy to spend time on my own, if I spend too much time on my own. I fall into a little Alice in Wonderland hole of worry. Where I can only be brought out of by talking to a fellow human being. So there's both positives and negatives to being an introverted extrovert, as like many things in life. 

I thought I'd make this post as I think sometimes it is healthy to reflect on yourself and where you are at this moment in your life and where you want to be aiming for. But to truly aim for that goal in which you dream to achieve, you must find inner confidence first. So let me know in the comments whether you're an introvert or extrovert or a bit of both like me?
