And, there is a sizable number of us who are "Middle of the Road", enjoying the benefits of both worlds. These people are sometimes called "ambiverts". There's no right or wrong way to be. There are advantages to each type of person.
Are you an introvert? If so, you are in good company. As an introvert, you're likely to enjoy a more quiet and serene lifestyle away from the limelight. Solitude is your virtue. You're likely to be perfectly happy by yourself reading a book or watching a movie, taking a hike by foot or on a bicycle, gardening, or just sitting and watching a sunset. That's not to say that you can't function in large groups. It's just that introverts are at their best in a calmer, more peaceful environment. You won't find many introverts making a career in public speaking, or in high visibility positions. But, introverts are known for making great contributions to society and the world. They have a big impact on society and in shaping the world. Introverts are often scientists, creators, philosophers, thinkers, writers, artists, park rangers, and often "techies. Introverts are generally considered happier, and have fewer goals or lofty expectations, and you may find them perfectly happy with the way things are. In communications, an introvert prefers texts and emails over in person meetings or phone calls.
The object of World Introvert Day, is to celebrate being an introvert in true introvert fashion. No glitz, no glamor, and definitely no party. Spend the day or evening alone, doing whatever you enjoy. It's as simple as that! You are also encouraged to promote awareness about what it means to be an introvert, and how great it is to be a person with this type of personality.
