Extraversion - it is in psychology the property of the individual, which characterizes the orientation of the personality installation to the outside. The term "extraversion" comes from the Latin "extra", which means outside and "versae", "versie" - denoting a turn, it turns out - turning to the outside. The concept of "extraversion", as well as "introversion" was introduced by the Swiss psychologist and philosopher Carl Gustave Jung to distinguish between two types of personality.
Extroversion is in psychology a complex of personality traits that determine a person's propensity for active social contacts, which is expressed in sociability, active talkativeness with different people and sociability. Also with the help of this complex, the person’s orientation towards the external social environment, and not towards his own inner world, is expressed.
Extroverted individuals often represent themselves and believe that their true vocation is to communicate with people and create.
Extraversion the definition of this property in an individual includes personal concern with all the events around. Himself an extrovert is always in sight, this is a great companion and a good friend.
Extraversion is characterized by such qualities as optimism, impulsivity, variability, carelessness.
Extroversion is a property in psychology that has antagonistic quality - introversion. Extraversion, together with introversion, constitute a single psychodiagnostic scale in the personal questionnaires of G. Aysenck, the Big Five, in the factorial questionnaire of R. Kettel. Passing such questionnaires, most people earn on the scale of "extroversion-introversion" (usually just the name of the scale "extroversion") average ratings, which means that there are not so many "pure" extroverts.
In a scale of extraversion, rather heterogeneous characteristics are combined. Thus, some psychologists characterize extraversion through formal-dynamic, stylistic and substantial properties and personality characteristics. But most psychologists tend to traditionally interpret extroversion as the quality of temperament.
Extraversion is characterized by the constant need to obtain various additional external facts and information. Based on them, the whole further activity of the individual is built.
Knowing what significant differences the properties of extraversion and introversion have, one can correctly determine the sociotype of a person. In literature and in history, there are well-known examples of extroverted social types, among them: Napoleon, Don Quixote, Hamlet, Hugo, Stirlitz, Zhukov, Jack, Huxley.
