An interesting study asks if introverts are really people that sense the world differently, namely by being extrasensitive to internal and external stimuli. There’s certainly something about that which feels right, but if introversion is related to an attention to details, then I would have to be an extrovert extraordinaire. Of course, some days I feel like I am an extrovert that just happened to have my extroversion beat out of me at a very young age. On the other hand, it could be that my brain processes so many details that the most obvious ones ellude me. That’s a pretty self-satisfying interpretation.
