Extroverts on the other hand, are energised by being around other people.When they’re left alone, they get bored very easily and tend to ‘fade’.For instance, one girl might share the step-by-step process of her latest hair removal experience. I’d rather not spend my days knowing that at any moment someone could barrel into my office like a bulldozer, and demolish my train of thought.
If you’ve recently fallen into the orbit of a charming extrovert, you’re probably thrilled and exhausted by your new love.But we introverts are sensitive to dopamine, so too much of it makes us feel overstimulated and anxious, writes Dr.Marti Olsen Laney in her book, However, when we read, concentrate, or use our minds in any way, we feel good because our brains release acetylcholine.So you’ve managed to fall – gracefully, of course – into a relationship with someone, but there’s just something slightly off about it all.You can’t put a finger on your differences and then suddenly you have one of those ‘aha’ moments – your personalities are complete opposite. Maybe you enjoy being curled up with a good book while your partner prefers cutting some serious rug on the dance floor. But only if both partners work hard at it and are clear on the expectations of one another.
