Extroverts: Feel charged or excited to meet high quantity of people, even if the quality of conversation is not initially the focus. Extroverts generally start conversations and are considered “social butterflies”.
Introverts: Feel charged by being alone or spending time with highly trusted and limited number of quality friendships. Usually introverts are more reflective and observe others before joining conversation.
