Introverts Or Extroverts - Who's More Productive?

Introverts Or Extroverts - Who's More Productive? | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
Yes. Everyone's a little introverted. Everyone's a little extroverted. And everyone can work better by embracing both qualities.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

which 'vert are you?  -  As we've noted again and again, managing your productivity is really a matter of managing your energy levels, so figuring out your introversion-extroversion orientation lends specifics to the oft ambiguous art of the recharge."

Are the Brains of Introverts and Extroverts Actually Different? - The Crux

Are the Brains of Introverts and Extroverts Actually Different? - The Crux | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
Personality types are often lumped into introverts and extroverts - but are they actually so distinct that we can see differences between their brains?
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Intro vs Extro-  " . . .it’s important to point out a significant distinction. When Carl Jung coined the terms “extrovert” and “introvert” in the early twentieth century, he emphasized that introverts aren’t necessarily shy or insecure—nor are extroverts necessarily empathic or loving. The distinction between the two, Jung wrote, lies mainly in the fact that introverts get exhausted by social interaction, while extroverts get anxious when left alone. Introverts need solitude in order to recharge, while extroverts draw energyfrom socializing.  -  Modern psychologists have added a third category, the ambivert, a personality that combines both introverted and extroverted traits—for example, a ruthless lawyer or CEO who loves to lead but doesn’t crave peer approval. And the Russian psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi reports that his most artistic patients tended to drift between introversion and extroversion throughout their lives. “[They’re] usually one or the other,” hewrote, “either preferring to be in the thick of crowds or sitting on the sidelines and observing the passing show.”

This is a fascinating article! Several studies in neuroscience find that the brains of introverts and extroverts are acutally different from one another! Wow, this is quite amazing and really confirms that we need to let people be who they really are!
