The Difference Between Introverts And Extroverts, In One Simple Chart

Let us break it down for you.

You might think you know the difference between extroverts and introverts. You understand that extroverts are talkative and outgoing, while introverts are quiet and private.

But that just scrapes the surface of the introvert-extrovert dichotomy. Do you know what makes extroverts and introverts tick? Do you know how each personality type recharges?

This infographic over at Office Vibe breaks down the key distinctions that separate introverts from their extroverted counterparts. If you’re having trouble understanding why your introverted or extroverted friends behave the way they do, allow this chart to explain.

Of course, this chart may not apply to you or your personality type 100 percent of the time. Many introverts exhibit extroverted behaviors and vice-versa. It’s not an exact science. But it is a great stepping stone to understanding a personality type that may be antithetical to yours.
