Introverts

Introverts are those that like to spend time alone and that is a little shyer than most in social situations. They might tend to avoid parties or speaking and presenting. They feel the most comfortable when they turning their attention inwards. They like to be artistic, creative, and maybe even engage in thoughtful activities like helping others.

Extroverts

Ambiverts

An ambivert is a person who is in between both an introvert and an extrovert. Their mood depends entirely on how they’re feeling. Almost all of us are this personality type to some extent, but we fall to one side of the spectrum. Makes sense, right?

Echoists

The last personality type is an echoist. This is the type of person that is seen as exemplary. They go above and beyond for others, including helping many. But they often do not have their own voice and prefer to have others act in their interest or speak on their behalf.
