Extroverts are happy and popular, always laughing, making friends, and hanging out with people. But they never think and they don’t read. Introverts, on the other hand, are sad, lonely, insecure, and rather pathetic. But they’re smart, they like books, and they think a lot.
Who would you rather be? And you have to pick, because apparently those are your only options.
For the last week or so we’ve been reflecting on personality: specifically introversion, extroversion, and how each can become an excuse for avoiding God-given opportunities and responsibilities. (See I’m Just Not Wired That Way and I’m Not Wired That Way Either.)
As I was searching for images to use on those posts, however, I was struck by the images that popped up. I’ve heard people talk before about how we portray introversion/extroversion in our media, but it was different to see the stark contrasts for myself. And, although I realize that it’s impossible to capture all the nuances of personality in a few pictures, I still think images like this help shape how we view ourselves and the people around us.
