The world goes gaga over extroverts and sullen about introverts as they are the only breeds to have ever walked upon earth. There is also another couple that is less privileged but more encompassing of either. Ambiverts and omniverts sum up this tribe of nature that govern people. It isn’t very rare that you come across ’em both. But you might not be able to decipher what they indeed are. They may be introverted at one point and erupt with extroversion at the other. Actually they may be ambiverts or omniverts. So if you are an ambivert yourself or one of those confused about whether your friend is one, we have listed some tell- tale signs for you that might help you in sorting things out-
One day you are the chirpiest of the lot.
On other days you are as dead as a bear.
So sometimes you are the reason for the party.
On others you are the one behind the washovers.
New environment and newer people tend to overwhelm you.
Hence ‘I thought you were shy’ is one of those generalisations you have been subjected to for the umpteenth time.
But put yourself among your bunch of people and you would chew their ears off.
In fact you can be so blabberous that your folks start freaking out when you turtle your way into ‘the silent zone’.
Which means you are also adept at administering the silent treatment to just about anyone.
But you can sure very much vibe in sync with the energy of the room.
Or even vibe out of sync. Like you can cheer things up with the not so chirpy ones and you can also tone down things to keep things in equilibrium.
Because you can gel in so well, your friends’ circle is also considerable.
But not all of them is who you would like to spend the most of your time with.
So when you end up ‘catching up’ with all of them, the entire lot, you tend to drift away to your own land of alone fantasy.
But more than a few hours into solitude and you are insanely bored.
Which leads you to speculate whether it makes actually going out worth all the while.
Even then you think it better to go out when you are at home. But you also think it is better being alone at home once you are out.
Celebrating your own birthdays is another dilemma for you. While you want all of the affection you don’t really know how to respond to so much love!
And you can’t even begin to imagine what a torture your wedding will be, in spite of all the perks of looking pretty like a bride!
Because you can’t do without attention but hey, you also can’t do with too much of it!
While you don’t let people walk all over you, you tend also to be not so assertive at times.
Most probably because you have not been very much in the mood at that time.
Sometimes you are a sassy soul, on other days you are straight outta dumb!
You bring on the smile as easily as you let the tears flow. Because you heal as easily as you hurt.
Also, you open up as easily as you shut off.
But you also get to inhabit either worlds of the introverts and extroverts. Extroversion flows of you as naturally as introversion sets in. Perks!
Ambiverts, rejoice! You have the passport to both the worlds. The universe is indeed yours.
