In this episode Joel and Antonia talk about the ambivert personality and whether or not it exists.

In this podcast on the ambivert personality you’ll find:

  • What is an Ambivert Personality? Does it really exist?
  • All of us have one introverted and one extraverted process in dealing with the mental world
  • Example: ENFP. Extraverted Intuition/Introverted Feeling
  • Both introverted and extraverted processes are important and as you grow and develop these processes, the more you appear as a person with an ambiverts personality.
  • We generally assume that extraversion means social (extraversion with people) and we assume that introversion excludes other human beings. However there are mental processes that are extraverted but are not social, and there are introverted processes that necessitates getting in touch with people.
  • Ambiverts are the ones that who have a strong association of these two processes. They can see the part of them that is both extraverted and introverted.
  • Don’t mistake your identity to a four-letter code, that’s a starting place of understanding how your mind works. You are way more than what any personality system can type you. Don’t assume that it explains everything about you.
  • Your co-pilot is the highest leverage growth opportunity for you. The point of the map is to simplify.
  • You need different styles of maps for understanding personality development and how your mind works.

    There’s some evidence to indicate that Introversion/Extraversion is in your DNA, but I don’t think anything at this point is definitive. My observation is that your preference doesn’t change over time, but rather that you’re able to grow your ‘auxiliary’ extraverted process with time and development. You’ll always keep your introverted preference, you’ll just have more skill using your extraverted mental process which gives you greater adaptability.

    Most people are so in love with their primary process (be it introverted or extraverted) they wouldn’t want to change it. :)

    Thanks for the question!

    Great podcast. How is it determined if you are introverted or extroverted or any of the other categories? What I mean is are you born introverted or do you become introverted due to your enviornment or over time? Can you change and use a different process as your main or favorite process? Can an introvert become dominantly and extrovert?

    Thanks for the podcast.

    Hey this one was pretty cool! I do now see a need for you two to start digging into cognative functions a bit further. At one point I did think I was both introverted and extroverted but understanding my preferred methods of learning and decision making helped. I am an INTJ but at work I seem to function more like an extrovert because my extroverted thinking really plays out. Many people are shocked to learn that I am actually introvert and I explain my need to get away and recharge quite often.

    What I personally am interested in hearing from you two is doing a relationship comparison of 2 personalities. My wife is an ESFJ and I am an INTJ. I have been studying our two personality types in a relationship and believe that we balance quite well. I think it would be cool to see you two explore personality types in a relationship and point out what is common to see work and not work.
