Both extroverts and introverts can learn something from each other: the extrovert can learn to reflect on past errors, while the introvert can learn to take action when necessary.
If you like small talk, you are an extrovert. If not, you are an introvert.
This is the simplest rule of thumb to use when trying to figure out whether you are an introvert or extrovert.
If you are an extrovert, you may realize that when you make a mistake, you barrel on anyway.
The next time you mess up, take a second and try to identify why the mistake was made in the first place. Learn from it so you do not make it again.
If you are an introvert, you may realize that whenever you get excited about something, you pause and over-analyze the situation.
Follow your gut instinct instead. Yes, it’s good to reflect on situations, but it’s much better to act on the situation itself.
However, keep in mind that being an introvert in the corporate world can cause you to miss out. Therefore, it’s best to be outgoing during work hours—get out there and make connections with people—but use your weekends for some quiet alone time.
