Just had a conversation with someone about extroversion and introversion.Extroversion according to Wikipedia
Extroverts tend to enjoy human interactions and are generally enthusiastic, talkative, assertive, and gregarious in social situations. They take pleasure in activities that involve large social gatherings such as: parties, community activities, public demonstrations, business, and political groups. Politics, teaching, sales, managing and brokering are fields that favor extroversion. An extroverted person enjoys and becomes energized by larger groups of people while time alone is less enjoyable and boring to them.Introversion according to Wikipedia
Introverts are people whose energy tends to expand through reflection and dwindle during interaction. Introverts tend to be more reserved and less outspoken in large groups. They often take pleasure in solitary activities such as reading, writing, music, drawing, tinkering, playing video games, watching movies and plays, and using computers, along with some more reserved outdoor activities such as fishing and hiking.
To me it seems that society has accepted and even encourages extroversion while it kind of suppresses introvert people. Of course not intentional (at least I hope so!). But being introvert is often seen as undesirable. Just take a look at television, adverts and other media.
I know that most people are at least a bit of both, but tend to lean more to one side or the other.
So what are you? Are you introvert or extrovert?
And what is your opinion on Progressive Rock/Metal regarding this matter? Are Proggers more introvert or extrovert? Or does it differ on the subgenres?
