Are You an Am­bivert?

There's a new way to de­scribe your per­son­al­ity now, and it could ex­plain a lot.

CLEO (Singapore) - - ADULTING -

We all know what it means to be an in­tro­vert or ex­tro­vert by now – in­tro­verts recharge by spend­ing time alone, while ex­tro­verts need to be around peo­ple to feel en­er­gised. But if you’re kind of in-between, you might be an am­bivert.

If you’re one of those peo­ple who some­times likes quiet and some­times a crowd, you prob­a­bly sit near the mid­dle of the in­tro­vert-ex­tro­vert spec­trum.

It might be con­fus­ing at first, but this means you need to be care­ful to lis­ten to your­self to fig­ure out if you need the en­ergy of oth­ers or some alone time.

“My re­served per­son­al­ity is some­times taken the wrong way... Peo­ple [see] me as a bad boy [but] I’m ac­tu­ally just a lit­tle bit shy and awk­ward.”

- Zayn Malik
