Extroversion can be Nurtured

Parent Interventions

People assume that a talkative and energetic person is an extrovert. New research done at Michigan State University has shown that being an extrovert is not only a personality trait but also an adaptive behaviour. Extroverts are characterized as sociable and gregarious but even introverts, characterized as being shy or quiet, can deploy extroversion as a contingency in certain social situations. Attending a conference for work where an introvert needs to meet and interact with a large group of new people might trigger extroverted behavior. People are also more likely to show extroverted behavior when they are interacting with friendly people. Students who felt that personality traits were fixed felt less satisfied with college experience when they had to act in ways that were in conflict with their behaviour and beliefs. Researchers concluded that people need to interact with others based on how they see themselves and how they want to behave. Be true to yourself and feel more satisfied in their environment.
