No such thing as an ambivert
While people are quick to leave blanket statements such as “everyone is an ambivert”, what they do when they say this is ignore an important debate in differences in temperament, thinking, and consciousness. Obviously, everyone is different, and we all work differently. We all perceive the world in different ways. The introvert and extrovert labels may be full of stereotypes and limiting ideas, but there are still differences, so what are these differences? Just because the issue is complicated, does not mean we should avoid it altogether.
My aim is to discuss introversion and extroversion in such a way that it explains every possible way an introvert may develop. I want to cover all the different philosophies, variations, and levels an introvert can develop in. I want to discuss what happens when an introvert extraverts, and when an extrovert introverts. Hopefully, by doing this, I can show that introversion and extroversion are two unique, distinct concepts. When people talk about everyone as ambiverts, they focus on overlaps between introverts and extroverts, similarities that all humans share.
While everyone is different, we also have thoughts and experiences that are shared with all humans. Such as wanting to be loved, needing to eat, wanting rest, wanting to live and see the world. In my coming book, I hope to tie all the knots together, giving us the ability to see the many variations of introverts and extroverts and the true differences between the types.
