Talking is something I could do all day. Anyone that knows me knows I love to ramble on and on about things. Even in my classes when my teachers make us read aloud or discuss in groups, I loved it and was always one to volunteer first. I fed off of other people’s energy. Every time we got into small groups I would lead the conversation especially when it came to which idea to share. But there was always that one kid in the group that would choose to not talk, regardless of how brilliant their ideas were. Every time I looked at their paper they had the best and most creative answers written down, they just didn’t like to share them. So although a majority of learners can benefit from groups, not all can. In institutions today, the extrovert
In the early 1960’s, educators and politicians realized that the traditional four year college was not for everyone and began exploring other options to further educate those not wanting to follow the traditional path. On September 4, 1969, Johnson County Community College held their first classes. Mike Alley, one of JCCC’s first students, recalled the “real sense of community” that students experienced in these first months at JCCC. (Bishop, 2002). The focus of Johnson County Community College was to help non-traditional students and assist those who wish to take the traditional route to graduating with a college
Extroverts can be some of the best people you meet. They have plenty to offer and thrive at the attention of others. However, being introverted can be just as great. In a society where being extroverted is the ideal, it can be very difficult to be an introvert. Susan Cain argues in her Ted Talk, “The Power of Introverts”, that introverts can share many brilliant ideas with the world and should be encouraged and celebrated for who they are. While she utilizes all 3 persuasive appeals, Susan Cain most effectively uses ethos in her TED Talk to persuade her audience to encourage people to allow introverts to thrive.
“Introverts are drawn to the inner world of thought and feeling… extroverts to the external life of people and activities.” This is a quote from Quiet, by Susan Cain. After reading this book about introversion, the way in which I viewed not only myself, but the world, would be unsettled. As an introvert, I am almost never as vocal, nor as spontaneous as extraverts are, but prefer observation, thoughtfulness, and quietness over extreme assertiveness. Growing up, I did not know what introversion was. I was just a shy child who had trouble talking to people outside of his small, tightknit friend group. I had no idea why I always acted so differently from most of the other students in elementary and middle school. I just coped with it on a day
In Susan Cain’s book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking she proves that introverts are vital to the world and everything typically thought of “the quiet ones” is wrong.
In the book Lord of the Flies, a large group of boys were found stranded on an island with only the land and themselves as resources.One boy in particular, Jack, decided he wanted to be the leader of the boys, and he did everything in his power to obtain that position. Because of this, Jack’s personality is defined as an ESTP. These four letters determine how a person’s psychological preference and how they see the world. His personality spelled out would be: Extroversion, Sensing, Thinking, and Perceiving.
“Are outsiders simply those who are misjudged or misunderstood?” When presented with this question, I immediately formed my opinion. This immediate reaction was most likely formed from the defensiveness I have allowed myself to have towards varying subjects. As my mother always says, “past predicts future.” I understand the argument of people who are “outsiders” are misjudged. Yet when they are judged by people it is because of the observations those people have had which lead them to judge someone in a certain way. Outsiders are simply misunderstood. It is impossible for outsiders to be misjudged because they are clearly judged by people already who just don’t understand them.
When I took this Big Five Inventory (BFI) I learned some things about myself that I did not know. I scored a 20 in extraversion, 24 in agreeableness, 19 in conscientiousness, 25 in neuroticism, and 27 in openness. I took the test before I read the book so I had no idea what these numbers meant. As I read the book, I then started to understand and agreed with the scores that I received.
Introverts act as mavericks, tending to converse with others with deeper connections whereas extroverts form more superficial connections with a greater number of people, which seems almost quixotic. It 's especially important to consider the arguments constructed in this book in the frame of a child. Introverted children should be exposed gradually to the world of extroversion, but should not be pushed past their limits otherwise they may "feel emotionally threatened" and associate school with negative emotions. Instead, they should focus on their deepest interests and try to attend a school that suits their personalities, with understanding teachers an integral element of the
According to Jung, having an inclination towards being more of an introverted individual then extraverted, is when the person prefers to be more independent than social. I think that this indeed can reflect to one of my character traits. For instance, I tend to like spending more time either reading the Holy Bible, or listening to calm music in my room, instead of going out to party on Saturday nights. I believe that I could have probably been influenced by my mother, who would always be in her room reading the Holy Scriptures and she’s the one who introduced it to me , and would read it to me throughout my childhood until I was able to read it and understand it myself. My grandmother is also this type of person, which makes me think either I inherited this kind of personality, or was I totally influenced
The existence of the subconscious mind is widely believed to have been first discovered by Sigmund Freud (1900) . He stated that the subconscious mind is like a big storehouse for repressed desires that is exclusive to each individual and they’re shaped by your life experiences, your memories and beliefs that can’t be deliberately brought to surface. For example, our basic instinct like urges for aggression and sex are contained in the subconscious mind and do not reach our consciousness because we see them as unacceptable to our rational and conscious selves. They are a part of your mind that you can’t access by your own will, a portion of minds that sleeps within you but in some ways affect your thought processes, behaviours and actions in
As we have seen in my detailed personality trait, which represent that I’m an introvert with (MBTI) code: “INFJ” the table below is the opposite personality trait of my (MBTI)
In 1923, Sigmund Freud proposed his theory that the make-up of an individual’s personality is largely governed by three fundamental components: the id, the ego, and the superego. Working through the unconscious and shaping behavior according to psychological fixations and conflicts or lack thereof, these elements evolve through five levels of psychosexual development (Freud, 1962). However, in spite of its compelling approach to the phenomenon, Freud’s structural theory of personality is riddled with limitations and as such, is subject to much criticism.
Extroverts will likely recognize the behavior described in their friends and family, and be reminded that while extroversion certainly has much to offer, so does introversion. This is a book that intends to improve all aspects of life through appreciation of diverse skills and tendencies, a book that simultaneously calls out the flaws in our culture and shows us the way to fix them. This is a book for everyone, loud or
Personality is defined as the combination of characteristics or qualities that form an individual 's unique character. Personality theory is the approaches to understanding the “What”, “How” and “When” of characteristics and features that make up an individual 's personality. An insight into personality is important to understand the function of a person’s mind. By doing this you would be able to understand and observe your own psyche from an outside perspective, interact with others better and understand why they do what they do or predict how someone may react to something.
